    On June 30, former CNN anchor Lynne Russell was saved from an alleged armed robber when her husband Chuck de Caro drew his 9mm and killed the attacker.

    The incident took place in Albuquerque, New Mexico, while the couple was traveling old Route 66 together.

    According to the New York Post, it was about 11:30 pm when Russell opened their motel door to go grab something out of the car, and the man was just standing there. She said, “I opened the door and he materialized out of nowhere; he was inside. And he pushed me into the room and onto the bed and closed the door.”

    Russell’s husband was in the shower and ran into the main room naked to investigate the noise.

    The suspect allegedly pulled a gun and demanded “money and valuables.” Russell said she and her husband “tried to calm the man, ask him not to point the gun because we really couldn’t think what we could give him.” Russell added, “It felt to me he was used to doing this, that whatever happened wouldn’t bother him.”

    On March 24, Gov. Chris Christie (R) said he would “respect” gun rights “appropriately” if voters gave him a pro-legislature. However, his past actions do not support this.

    For instance, in 2011, Christie opposed a push for national reciprocity for concealed carry permits even though it was supported by New Jersey’s “entire Republican delegation in the House.”

    According to North Jersey, by doing this, Christie sided with a concealed carry permit process that “makes it very difficult for anyone but law enforcement officers to carry weapons” for self-defense.

    Moreover, this was the same position he took in 2009, when he said:

    I believe that each state should have the right to make firearms laws as they see fit. I don’t believe it’s right for the federal government to get into the middle of this and decide firearms laws for the people of the state of New Jersey.

    In April Breitbart News reported the Senior District Judge Richard Matsch threw out a lawsuit filed by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence on behalf of the parents of Aurora shooting suspect James Holmes. The suit, filed against online ammo retailer Lucky Gunner and other outlets, sought monetary relief for ammunition and firearms supplies purchased by Holmes.

    On June 26, NRA-ILA reported that Judge Matsch has now released his opinion in which he reprimands the Brady Campaign for bringing the suit — which is clearly barred by the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2005. NRA-ILA explained that this act “was meant to protect the firearm industry from a coordinated campaign of anti-gun lawsuits claiming gun manufacturers and dealers were responsible for the criminal acts of third parties who were unknown to them and totally beyond their control,” and it did just that in the case brought against Lucky Gunner by the Brady Campaign.

    In the opinion, Matsch took time to point out what he saw as the political underpinnings of the Brady Campaign’s suit:

    It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center, and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants into the Colorado court where the prosecution of James Holmes was proceeding appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order which counsel should have known would be outside the authority of this court.

    The Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL) is asking city council members to reword a gun storage proposal so that former and off-duty cops are exempted from a gun storage requirement now being discussed.

    As it now stands, the proposal would require all gun owners to lock up their guns in the home or otherwise render them inoperable. The LAPPL “argues that current and former officers shouldn’t be held to those rules.”

    According to the LA Times, the LAPPL claims “current and former officers needed quick access to guns for protection, citing the armed rampage by ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner as an example of police and their families being targeted.”

    City Councilman Joe Buscaino (LA 15th), a former LAPD officer, concurred, saying, “Anyone who wears a badge – both present and in the past – are police officers … and I’m just looking at their personal safety.”
