Chicago Taxi Driver Stabbed in Robbery Attempt

A taxi cab driver was stabbed and critically injured Thursday night by a passenger in the West Town neighborhood during a robbery attempt, according to police. The attack occured at about 11:30 p.m. near Western Avenue and Hirsch Street, said Chicago Police Officer Hector Alfaro. The male assailant then fled the scene, and the cab driver was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, Alfaro said. No suspects are in custody. 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.
