The media is making it a big deal that Will Smith had a loaded gun in his car, but I would imagine a lot of professional athletes, that are gun owners, have loaded guns in their cars. Why would you keep an unloaded gun in your car? Having a loaded gun in precautionary, not aggressive. Having an unloaded gun is useless.
Do you really think that Smith would start a gun fight with his wife in the passenger seat next to him and children waiting for him at home?
I watched the video where Smith's car hit the Hummer. If I felt like the person in front of me was trying something fishy, I would have left the scene too, especially if I was with my wife.
