This is one of the times I'm really glad I'm a 4th degree black belt, as is my spouse. We're going to the auto show tonight and so will have to pass through a metal detector. Obviously this means not only no handguns, but no blades or extendable baton or even mini-maglite (items I am known to keep handy).
So from the parking deck to the show and back, I'll have my brain, hands and feet (and my wife's as well of course) to defend my family in downtown D.
Well - we do it every year but it STILL bugs me.
Downtown Detroit precinct is the safest place in the city, granted, but that still doesn't say much.
Once we come out and go to Greektown for dinner, I'll strap up again but Geez!
