    CNN may have a hard time explaining how this fits into their Anti-Gun agenda.

    I didn't realize how much CNN had 'sanitized' this story when I posted the link. The first report I read from another source wasn't chock full of attempts to cast doubt and blame on the victims. Sickening to see how far these MSM hacks will go to further their narrative, even at the expense of former colleagues.

    For contrast, here's the first report I read. Note the differences in how the scene is described, as well as the actions of the perp.

    The CNN report tries to cast doubt about whether it was a robbery, about the firearms being legal, about the wifes 'version' of the story and even about the effectiveness of using a firearm for self defense by noting that he had to switch to a second gun when the first had failed to stop the attacker.

    Straight up editorial being passed off as news.

    Was thinking the same thing...they said they were on their way to California too...I wonder if they would have had to had their pistols priority mailed to them seperately from their 10rnd magazines to shoot this guy if it was in CA vs. NM.

    This is why active and fierce resistance works every time. Violence of Action will generally make up the deficits in an ad-hoc plan.

    Glad the BG is pushing up daisies instead of them. :D

    I believe Lynne Russell was a Fulton County, Georgia reserve sheriff for a number of years.
    I do not know if she had enough time to qualify under the nationwide LEO permit system for officers.

    For sure.

    I just read a report that glossed over the details and said that the shooting is being investigated as a "homicide".
    The title of the article didn't mention a thing about it being a defensive shooting.

    The big picture, this perp won't perp any more.
    The rest of the story, Chuck and Lynne live to tell about it.

    What I want to know, the guy entered the room naked from the shower and grabbed his gun? What? He carries in the shower?

    Lynne (the Wife) placed one of their handguns into her purse, then handed it off to Chuck (the Husband) as they were trying to calm down (read, gain tactical advantage) on the perp. When it became clear things were headed South, Chuck opened up.. and kept in the fight even after taking 1 in the leg and 2 in the abdomen. Proving the only excuse to stop fighting is if you're dead.
