So you guys probably heard that there was this lady who was a CNN anchor once upon a time, right? And she and her husband were on the road and crashed in a Motel 6 in Albuquerque. And there, something very bad happened. Guy burst in or accosted her in the parking lot or something. She ends up in the room with the bad guy and it’s not looking good for our heroine when her husband comes out of the bathroom dripping, naked, and soon enough blazing away with a pistol. As rarely happens, bad guy stood and shot back. And there they were, the participants in the proverbial gunfight in a phone booth. Bad guy dead (good), good guy took three serious rounds (bad) but apparently will live (good.)
Okay, all this you likely already knew. It was all over the gunny sites, of course, and possibly due to the lady’s former celebrity the story even made a few MSM sites.
Well, Husband is in the hospital and reportedly recovering. Former Celebrity Lady is getting hit up for interviews all over the place, and this week is being quoted as saying…
“If you don’t want to carry please don’t. Then, shut the f–k up about it. Make your own decisions. “
Good enough if she’d only have shut up there. But that was not to be.
She adds that the government should stop arguing about gun control and pass a law that states, “If you committed a violent crime you can’t get a gun permit. Simple law.”
Yeah, see, she’s all proud that both she and her husband are Good Law-Abiding Citizens, licensed by the State to carry the means of self-defense, and that’s the way it ought to be. She even acknowledges that…
“I’m sure that the man who shot my husband did not have a gun permit. Criminals will always have guns.”
…but just can’t seem to find that bright light that will tell her that Good Law-Abiding Citizens don’t, or at least shouldn’t, need no steenking license to do precisely the same thing.
I dunno. I wish them both well, truly I do. But I have a hard time wrapping my mind around the thought processes of people who insist on believing that if we aren’t licensed and regulated to death by the state, there will be chaos and mass hysteria – even in the face of compelling evidence that bad things happen when they happen, and no license will change it.
