On the train.
It is going to feel weird to be gunless, the sooner Illinois sort out their concealed carry the better, and living in St. Louis I will probably suck up the cost and get an Illinois permit.
And for those who never go anywhere they can't carry, it's a business trip for a job I love, I have to go.

I pretty much doubt Ill Annoy will issue non resident permits.
Amtrak gets pretty funky about concealed carry too, no matter where you are.

I have a feeling that even if, and I say if, Illinois offers a non-resident permit, Chicago will come up with some way to not allow it.
Aside from the whole liberal agenda thing, Chicago is a pretty cool city. Enjoy!

When Chicago gets CCW, almost everywhere will be a "Gun-Free-Zone".
If I had to go there, I take my 2 oz can of O.C. The same stuff I used in LE. It may not be legal, but the consequences beat getting stabbed & such, if needed.
I have dropped many a BG, instantly, instead of going 'hands-on' when some fool would not stop advancing on me when told to stop.
Don't be fooled by all the phony 10% and other mess, out there, like Walmart sells, make sure you get the real thing. Good Peace of mind.
Condolences. I used to go to the Windy a lot trucking. I wouldnt go there now on a bet. Nor the state of Illinois.
Thankfully the way Ill is positioned though I have to go out of my way theres no place I cant go around it and still get there. And I do.
You dont have to believe a train is coming. Itll run over you anyway.
I used to live in Chicago back in 2004-2005 and the apartment had a great view of Navy Pier. We lived in downtown and we used to walk to work and ride the "El". But it has changed since we lived there and I don't know if I would go back again now.
As soon as you step off the train in Chicago, you'll be robbed of all your possessions at gun point (the bad guy will hold the gun sideways). Because it takes forever to do the paperwork to report a robbery, you'll become homeless -- why do you think there are so many homeless people in Chicago? As you beg piteously for food on the street, you'll be beaten by thugs once every six hours. If you dare resist and defend yourself, the liberals there will call the police on you. The police will stomp you on the curb, book you and charge you with everything in the book: racist sexist homophobe meat eater who isn't considerate of the feelings of underprivileged kids, kittens, and Rastafarians. That's when the fun starts. Oh, those inmates really love outside meat. You'll be raped in prison, if you haven't been raped in the street while the cops are busy violating the Constitutional rights of some Chicagoan. To get out of the hell that is Chicago jail, you'll have to strike up a deal with your crooked lawyer, and you'll have to be a drug mule transporting meth in condoms in your rectum. That's just the beginning of your fall into crime.
Seriously, you'll be OK. Be smart, stay alert, exercise common cautionary measures, and you'll be fine. Enjoy Chicago. I like the waterfront.
I have to go to Wash. DC for work so it is understandable to make a living and have a roof over your head.
