CABBIES CAN CARRY GUNS, SAYS JOE JORDAN... Then ROBERT JORDON says GUNS WON'T STOP CAB-DRIVER ATTACKS

Boston taxi cab drivers who have firearm licenses will be allowed to carry guns to protect themselves, Boston Police Comr. Joseph M. Jordan announced at a press conference yesterday.

Jordan’s ruling comes in the wake of the second murder of a cab driver in four days in the city and cancels a long-standing order of the department’s Hackney Carriage division that forbids cab drivers to be armed.

                       On the issue of guns, violence and cab drivers, there are people of
                       good sense, but Boston Police Commissioner Joseph M. Jordan is not
                       among them.

                       For Jordan to allow cab drivers with firearm licenses to carry
                       weapons is, at best, an overreaction to the recent murders of two

                       drivers in four days
