Getting pimp-slapped by reality

Former CNN anchor Lynne Russell has spoken out in support of the right to bear arms after her husband's gun saved her from an armed robber.
Lynne Russell, 68, had stopped for the night in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Tuesday June 30 when she was reportedly grabbed by an unidentified robber who demanded valuables from her room.
But she was saved from the attack after her husband former CNN anchor Chuck de Caro- who has served in the special forces - burst out of the shower and gunned the assailant Tomorio Walton down in the nude.
Russell told FOX411 that having a gun 'absolutely' saved their lives.De Caro was shot three times and is expected to survive and Russell was not injured.
'The discussion over the debate to own a gun is just ridiculous. As Americans we have the right to bear arms and as humans the right to protect ourselves. I’m sure that the man who shot my husband did not have a gun permit. Criminals will always have guns. The rest of us legally obtain our gun permits,' Russell said.
Both Russell and de Caro are long time supporters of the Second Amendment which states that Americans have the right to bear arms. [Didact: While technically correct, this is an incomplete reading of the Second Amendment.]
'If you don’t want to carry please don’t. Then, shut the f--k up about it. Make your own decisions,' she said bluntly.
Russell told Fox that the government should spend less time arguing about gun control and more time regulating those who can obtain guns.'If you committed a violent crime you can’t get a gun permit. Simple law,' she said.
