You were in the wrong the instant you thought you had a right to the lane occupied by the motorcyclist merely by signalling your desire to change lanes.  Your request, your urgency to change lanes, and the motorcyclist's refusal to grant your desire are entirely irrelevant.  You stay in your lane until access to another is safe and granted.

Your thoughts of more violent response would subject you to jail time if acted upon, and if I were on a jury of such a case, I would put you there without much hesitation.

Violence is the last resort of the incompetent. 

And if you are concerned that I have some bias about it, I don't personally like most motorcyclists.

Nations are incompetent.

Only use a gun if you have no choice. Id say keep pissing him off until the light is green and just go.

Proper forward planning would have had you in the correct lane with plenty of time.   Drive competently, drive safely.

Rule #1 of dealing with road rage is to drive to the nearest police station or public mall.  Authorities and witnesses deter a lot of angry responses.
