(CBS/AP) LILBURN, Ga. – A 69-year-old suburban Atlanta man faces a murder charge after authorities say he shot and killed a 22-year-old man who had mistakenly driven into his driveway. An arrest warrant states that Rodrigo Abad Diaz of Duluth, Ga., was fatally shot in the head Saturday as he tried to drive away from Phillip Sailors’ home in Lilburn, northeast of Atlanta.
According to Diaz’s friends, who were in the vehicle at the time of the incident, the 22-year-old had received incorrect directions from a GPS device which led him to Sailors’ driveway, the Atlantic Journal-Constitution reports. They were in the area to pick up a friend.
Here is yet another sad story about a man who killed a boy because he turned into the wrong driveway. It is just another example of how our obsession with guns has created the environment for yet another tragedy. A World Trade Center worth of victims happened every month because of guns. When will we ever do something about this? Since the recent idiotic stands of the NRA seem to be destroying their power, I pray that more congressmen grow a backbone and are able to do something soon. Like many other things much of the rest of the world has already addressed this problem.
