Do not shoot the plows, you morons. We WANT them to clear our roads.

I take it you've never shoveled a driveway only to have a plow to put 3 ft of solid pack on it before you can go back in to warm up a little.

It's the American way. If there is a problem, you shoot at it.

You shoot at a piece of machinery designed to push tons of snow around, you'd best hope the city's snow plow drivers don't get your plate numbers and address. It will be buried under a mountain of greasy road ice if they're nice, wrapped around a utility pole twice if they're not.

One of many reasons I got out of Minneapolis and moved further north.

Snow is a hoax. If we don't measure it then it is not there. Plows encroach on my freedumbs.

They get paid for each go-round, thus having every interest in screwing with anyone who shoots at them.

Shooting back isn't the most brilliant strategy, even if it makes you 15 minutes late at the local machinery-parts plant.

I remember shoveling out my driveway and as I finished a plow would come along and put up a bank of ice and snow that I would need to shovel out. not saying shooting at plows is right but I understand.

Bullets are ineffective when stopping snowplows.

You need fire.

You are supposed to use the guns on the snow hill the plow leaves on your driveway. The hot lead removes them like magic. Shotguns work the best. Duh.
:O

Speaking as someone who shoveled a lot of snow off the driveway, only to have the plow come by and block the end...

Road Rage shootings are only getting more common here in the US. At this point, you have to assume everyone is packing heat and ready to use it if they get mad enough in traffic.

Private_Citizen: Road Rage shootings are only getting more common here in the US. At this point, you have to assume everyone is packing heat and ready to use it if they get mad enough in traffic.


Also, if someone is driving without insurance, the immediate financial loss of a crash can send them into a rage. Imagine $5-20k going up in smoke in an instant because the other person was driving without insurance and caused the crash. You may find yourself on the receiving end of that rage even if you did everything right.

The plow truck was parked. The shooter-car driver was likely drunk and/or unlicensed, and certainly a hotheaded moron who should spend the rest of his life punching license plates.

I'd hit it.

There are better ways, also I clear a bit "upstream" so the plow has a place to put snow besides my driveway.

It apparently was a city plow, not one by the MnDOT.
The latest MnDOT snowplow naming contest is here: https://www.dot.state.mn.us/nameasnowplow/

"On the plow truck, officers found damage from bullets. Police say the plow driver wasn't hurt."

Minnesota nice shooting.
 
2022-01-25 1:32:57 PM  
As a Minnesotan i could understand if the shooting happened immediately after the plow blocked a freshly cleared driveway as that is infuriating as all hell.   But yeah its not cool to shoot a snow plow.
 
2022-01-25 2:23:35 PM  
In the area of 43rd & Freemont? Crazy people with guns driving around, willing to shoot at anything? Geez. I'm glad I was sitting down. (Drove through North during the day all the time. Would not drive through North at night.)
 
2022-01-25 2:59:32 PM  
Snowplow was being a jerk?
(Not to justify shooting, just anger)

I'll just leave this here:
Crazy snowplow

Why do trains no longer have a caboose?

In the late eighties, there was an article in Model Railroader about "upgrading your caboose to modern standards". Said standards included dealing with a cinder block dropped from above, or a .22 shot from the side.

No. All of you gun nuts are out of your freakin' mind, and need them taken away.
