NM: Ex-CNNer Lynne Russell's husband kills robber in wild motel shootout

A road trip down old Route 66 led to a Wild West-style motel shootout for a pioneering CNN anchor and her former-soldier hubby.

Lynne Russell — the first woman to ever solo-anchor a primetime network news show — and Chuck de Caro, 65, had stopped at a Motel 6 for the night in Albuquerque when an intruder slipped into their room

When the thug grabbed a briefcase and began firing at him, De Caro shot back as Russell ducked behind a piece of furniture.

De Caro was shot twice in the abdomen and once in the leg — but managed to kill the gunman with his return fire. The intruder fled the motel room and collapsed in the parking lot, where cops later found him.

After the altercation, the woman who lives at the location went to a neighbor's house and told them she had shot a man after he had assaulted her and threatened her with a gun, said Bobo.

According to Bobo, the gun the woman used to shoot the man was recovered from the neighbor’s house upon investigation.The man was found to be holding another gun prior to his transport to the hospital.

Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office investigators and the Solicitor's Office are continuing their investigation; at this time it appears the female resident acted in self-defense against the dead man, according to Bobo.

Short-barrel shotguns are now legal for purchase in Indiana.

The new law takes effect Wednesday and allows Indiana manufacturers to make shotguns with barrels 18-inches long or less. It also allows for these guns to be sold in the state.

Indiana lawmakers approved the law earlier this year, and it brings the state into line with federal laws.

Defense Distributed—the company run by 3D-printing provocateur Cody Wilson—and the Second Amendment Foundation this week filed their Reply to Defendants’ Opposition to Plaintiffs’ Motion for Preliminary Injunction.

This case is important in pushing back against government attempts to shut up open discussion of technical details of weapons making on the Internet or elsewhere, a case that implicates both our First Amendment rights to speak and publish and our Second Amendment rights for meaningful access to weapons of self-defense.

When they arrived on the scene, they found 25-year-old Ryan DeAngelis with a fatal gunshot wound. Police say DeAngelis was arguing with his roommate, Jeffery “Zach” Taylor and that argument escalated into a gun fight with multiple shots fired.

Silverhill Police Chief Kim Wasdin said, while it is clear based on the evidence officers have gathered so far that the fatal gunshot was fired by Taylor, Silverhill PD has no plans to file charges against Taylor and has not ruled out the possibility of self-defense.

The Missouri Supreme Court has upheld a constitutional amendment that broadened gun rights in the state.

Voters approved Amendment 5 in August 2014 with 61 percent of the vote. It made the right to own firearms, ammunition and other accessories in the state "unalienable," and said any form of gun control should be subject to "strict scrutiny." The amendment also allowed the open carrying of guns.

A Rice Township police report about the June 20 incident says the officer, walking to the area where the gunfire was coming from along Church Road, had his hand on his holstered weapon, but never drew the gun as he repeatedly shouted “police.”

As the officer approached, Taney “became very irate, yelling that he was doing nothing wrong and knew his rights,” the report says.

Taney was target shooting into a densely wooded area behind his house. The officer checked with the township police chief, who told him no crime was being committed and there was nothing he could do unless Taney was shooting in an unsafe manner. No charges were filed.

On Thursday, June 26, the Rhode Island General Assembly adjourned from their 2015 Legislative Session.

Neither Senate Bill 503 nor Senate Bill 520 advanced out of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Gun owners in the Ocean State can rest easy knowing that all anti-gun legislation introduced this session was held in committee for further study.

Thank you to all NRA members and Second Amendment supporters for your active involvement throughout the 2015 legislative session.

In a textbook approved by Common Core for use by students studying for the Advanced Placement (AP) history exam, the Second Amendment is defined this way: "The Second Amendment: The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”

Another book that received the Common Core stamp of approval informs students that the Second Amendment “grant[s] citizens the right to bear arms as members of a militia of citizen-soldiers.”

Two men were shot during a confrontation on a rural road in Wayne County, Illinois, early Sunday morning, but authorities say the man fired in self-defense.

The Courier & Press reported that 26-year-old Erick Paula said he was at a party earlier in the day when the two men, Blaze Greenwood, 22, and Alex Barrowman, 23, began to harass him. According to Paula — who is black — the two men — who are white — were making racially motivated remarks toward him. Paula asked them to stop and thought that was the end of it.

NBC News is touting a “shocking” new study about gun ownership in the United States which seems designed to see what sort of generalizations they can draw about people who exercise their Second Amendment rights. (And perhaps to give an idea of where they’d need to go to grab them all if that became possible.) Published by something called Injury Prevention, the numbers will be shocking… to anyone who has never paid any attention to this subject.

One bill that was passed in 2014 but didn't take effect until this year requires Oklahoma court clerks to notify the FBI when a person is adjudicated mentally incompetent or involuntarily committed due to a mental illness. The notice, which also includes the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, is for the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) database, which gun dealers must check before selling a firearm.

"I'm a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and I think something that undergirds our ability to keep and bear arms is to make sure those people who should not have them or who are a danger to themselves or to society don't have access to firearms," said Sen. Greg Treat, R-Oklahoma City, who wrote the law.
 

ME: We need to speak out against unregulated concealed carry

Here is how I’ve applied it to L.D. 652, “An Act To Authorize the Carrying of Concealed Handguns without a Permit.” Amended to allow service members older than 18 to carry concealed guns, the bill has passed the Legislature and is expected to be signed by Gov. Paul LePage.

Even though L.D. 652 is on its way to becoming law, I believe it is still worthwhile and important to take a stand regarding this issue — in the broader sense of gun regulation in Maine.

And Trevor Burrus, Research Fellow at Cato, warned, “If proponents want to bring a case on concealed carry and cite the Obergefell opinion, they are free to… [But] gay marriage [doesn’t] automatically convey a right to concealed carry in 50 states. Moreover, by using these spurious arguments, advocates … harm the overall movement for gun rights. Bad arguments can create bad precedents that could impair the expansion of the right to self defense.”
 

Gun Review: Definitive Arms AKX-9

It’s always an exciting time when a gap is filled within the gun industry. Pistol caliber carbines are ever gaining in popularity, so it was just a matter of time before someone found a way to make an AK work in 9mm. With the exception of Frankensteined guns, which are a melting pot of many different parts, 9mm AK’s were unheard of simply because of reliability issues. I can honestly say that the Definitive Arms AKX-9 does not suffer from unreliability. In fact, after throwing several hundred rounds down range, I didn’t have a single malfunction.

Whether to capitalize on a tragedy for political purposes, or because their urge to “do something” isn’t tempered by a sense of reality, Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) reacted to the deplorable murders at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, last week by saying that they may reintroduce so-called “universal” background check legislation to require background checks on private sales and trades of firearms, including those between many family members and friends.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Our Founding Fathers were proud that Americans were trusted with arms because they knew that only when people are armed could they truly be thought of as free citizens. And that's where the circle closes. Those who want to deprive you of your right to keep and bear arms are intending to deprive you of your freedom, period. Like the criminals their policies encourage, these elitists know that it is always best to disarm victims before you enslave them. — Charley Reese
