Woman Fatally Stabbed While Helping a Family Member with Laundry

On Monday morning, 73 year old Florence McCollum of Chicago was fatally stabbed in a building owned by her cousin, who had asked for her help with the laundry. She was in a downstairs apartment of her cousin’s building in the 3400 block of South Giles when she was attacked, possibly by a burglar. McCollum was known as an individual who volunteered at a food pantry, taught religion, and cared for her older cousin, according to friends and family. More information here.

In the above situation, and countless others, innocent people have been harmed by the action of a criminal. Had there been an armed, law abiding citizen in the area, tragedy may very well have been averted. Americans use guns for self defense every 13 seconds, and that is perhaps the best reason to have a gun. These people are certainly glad they had a gun for self defense.
