John Lott has a new piece at Fox News on Lynne Russell and her husband defending themselves with a gun.
Lynne Russell and her husband, Chuck de Caro, believe they would be dead if she hadn’t been carrying a gun. Late Wednesday night, Russell was forced at gunpoint from a motel parking lot into her room. The robber, not satisfied with merely taking her husband’s briefcase, started shooting at him. Fortunately, Russell had handed de Caro her purse, with her handgun inside it. De Caro shot the attacker, who later died at the hospital. 
This story made national news. ABC NewsNBC NewsFox NewsPeople Magazine and even such foreign publications as the UK Guardian newspaper mentioned that Russell, a CNN anchor from 1983 to 2001, and de Caro both had concealed handgun permits. 
We see these stories every day, some of the heroic actions caught on video and others where the criminal is killed, but you would never know it, because the national media continually ignore them. The case with Russell is an exception because she is a public figure. 
To illustrate how common such defense is, consider a few other cases that occurred over the last week where permitted concealed handguns stopped crimes: . . .

You know what is funny as well is that not long ago I read somewhere that Lynne is not very happy with the way CNN is now. I get the impression that she thinks it is so obvious the bias and partisanship from ones like Anderson Cooper and others on there nowadays. Basically confirms what I've felt for a long time that CNN was far more watchable back about twenty years or so ago when ones like her were still on, even though many conservatives would point out that they called it the Clinton News Network back then.
