    Or family. My nephew's bar mitzvah is in the Merryland side of the DC area soon. Sometimes, one just has to suck it up and drive on.

    I was there in June. I felt VERY uncomfortable in whatever part of the city I went. I had people look at me all the time with that look of "can I roll this guy". Most people just seem oblivious to the danger. Many were very apprehensive wherever they went.

    If my special need brother was not there, I doubt I would ever go to that city.

    Carry a blade when you can't carry a firearm. It's better than nothing.
    I like my Ka-bar TDI fixed blade. It's where my sidearm should be-3:00.

    Don't you need a passport to visit Chicago now a days?

    It's good to step outside your comfort zone. I'm flying back home today after a two weeks slick at the Cleveland Clinic where I underwent open heart surgery. On the Step Down floor I was a poster child for rapid recovery. Walking the street to the pharmacy I felt what it was like to be regarded as an "easy mark" for the first time in my life. I don't like the feeling but there's not much I can do for a bit. I think going unarmed after carrying adds extra insight into one's situational awareness. Maybe I'm just looking for the silver lining...

    Chicago

    I was born and raised there. I moved to MN. because my wife and her large family are here.

    Is there crime\violence\evil people there? Obviously. But it's a very big, bustling city. In all the decades I lived there, I was never mugged, assaulted, robbed, etc. About the worst I ever encountered was a homeless guy who might swear at me for not giving him any money.

    That being said, there are areas more dangerous than others and you do need your situational awareness. Just like in anywhere else.

    I do agree that Chicago firearms laws are horrible and the crime rate would probably drop if law-abiding citizens were allowed to carry.
