    I myself carry a gun, a knife (or two), a small flashlight (MiniMagLED), but as of right now no OC spray. (Gonna get some.) It sounds to me like you are doing all that you can to remain safe. When you are old enough, get the hell outta IL and get yourself a CCW license if you really want to be able to defend yourself in the gravest extreme.
    I'm taking my class for my Utah permit this weekend. I've got a chance to get an internship in Indiana this summer so I might be able to carry when I'm not working. (I'll have to read more about the company to see if I could carry while working.)

    As much as I would love to say that would work (I hate the entities that ban carry, like corporations and universities, etc., for doing it), I have a strong feeling that they would defend themselves by saying, "If you didn't like it, you didn't have to put yourself there."

    I'd LOVE to see them held accountable for what happens to people they demanded be unarmed. They tell us we have to be unarmed, and then they fail to protect us?! Yes, there should be liability on their part, if we can show that we would otherwise have provided for our own protection were it not for their rules. Sadly, I don't think it would pan out for us in court, though.

    What about an entire state? Sometimes it's not as easy just to leave the whole state just because they don't want you to defend yourself.

    I should put it in my will that if I'm ever killed during a robbery that I want my estate to fund a lawsuit against the state. Of course that woulnd't be much of a law suit right now. Guess it'll have to wait till I'm filthy rich.

    I totally agree with the decoy wallet. I actually carry a slim one for my important stuff (ID, bank cards, etc) and a money clip for the cash. that cash is my decoy. I was taught to throw it at opposite direction so that the perp would run after it, thus giving you a chance to run the other way. But then some folks say to just hand it to him. I guess it'll depend on the person. Even though I am armed, if someone is within less of 3ft., by the time I unholster my weapon, he/she would have seen it, panic, and shoot. So I am not tempting to be a hero at less than 3ft. been then again, it depends on the person and situation. If he does look at the direction of the wallet, I have a chance at getting my weapon. If doesn't...then lets hope he doesn't mind 5 $1 bills and maybe a 20. Its okay to loose a couple of books just as long you get to go to class the next day.
