Four Heroes Honored for Stopping Deranged Chainsaw Attacker & Rescuing Victim
Two months ago, 27-year-old Jose A. Jaimes-Jiminez attacked his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend with a chainsaw, causing critical injuries. Four business owners in the area witnessed the attack and intervened, saving the victim's life.
Yesterday, the Good Samaritans were presented with certificates of appreciation by Arlington Heights Mayor Tom Hayes, who praised them for their selflessness and bravery.
From the Daily Herald:
While it's admirable that Mayor Hayes is recognizing the four heroes for stepping in to stop the horrendous attack, there's much more that needs to be done. Illinois has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, yet one of the highest gun-involved crime rates. Gun laws did nothing to stop Jiminez, nor would they stop any of the other countless perpetrators terrorizing Illinois.
This story could've turned out completely different. Instead of four heroes being commended, Mayor Hayes could've been giving a press conference on five deaths at the hands of one homicidal thug. Bottom-line: States that praise gun-control legislation are advocating the elimination of your right to self-defense and the defense of others.

When evil comes knocking on your door, will you have the right training, tools and means to stop it? Will you be ready to step up? What are you doing to even your odds of survival?
Stay alert. Stay alive.
