Former CNN Anchor Tells Gun Grabbers to “Shut the F— Up”

By Jerry A. Kane

Former CNN anchor Lynne Russell, who worked for the cable network between 1983 and 2001, has chided gun control advocates for trying to pass laws to prevent people from defending themselves with guns.

“If you don’t want to carry, please don’t. Then, shut the f— up about it. Make your own decisions,” Russell said.

Russell and her husband, former CNN reporter Chuck de Caro, were attacked June 30 by Tomorio Watson, an armed felon who held the couple at gun point in an Albuquerque, New Mexico, Motel 6 room during an attempted armed robbery.

In the course of the commission of the crime, a shootout occurred that left Walton dead and de Caro shot three times, but Russell was not injured during the exchange of gunfire.

Russell said that having a gun “absolutely” saved their lives. Both she and de Caro have been long time advocates for gun rights.

“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.

Russell said de Caro has had his breathing tube removed and is doing better each day, but it will be a few weeks before he is released from the hospital. Russell said de Caro is her “hero” and credits his Special Forces background and cool head for saving their lives.

“I’m so grateful to him. He literally is my hero. He saved my life. I’m grateful that he is a responsible gun owner. He’s former Special Forces. He knows how to handle himself,” Russell said.

Although the investigation is ongoing, Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Simon Drobik said that de Caro would not face charges.

Deming, New Mexico, police pulled over David Eckert, 64, January 2, 2013, for running a stop sign. What should have been a routine traffic citation for Eckert turned Kafkaesque when Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office drug-sniffing dog Leo signaled he had drugs.

This isn’t the first time Leo, whose certification allegedly expired in April 2011, has barked up the wrong tree. In October 2012, police stopped Timothy Young for a turn signal violation. Leo alerted Sheriff’s deputies that Young had drugs, but a search of his vehicle and person failed to turn up any.

When police didn’t find any drugs in Eckert’s vehicle, they got a search warrant from a judge authorizing a probe “up to and including [Eckert’s] anal cavity.” They took him to Gila Regional Medical Center where he underwent three enemas, two digital anal probes, two X-ray scans, and a colonoscopy with anesthesia. The warrant’s limits allegedly were exceeded by the colonoscopy.

Not only was the colonoscopy performed without Eckert’s consent, but he also was billed $6,000 by the medical center for the procedure. Eckert refused to pay the bill.

In December 2013 a quiet settlement was reached with Eckert. Deming gave the scrap metal tradesman $950,000 and Hidalgo County forked over another $650,000.
