Yeah i cannot wait till conceal-carry passes through ! That will make the scum in this shit-hole think twice now that people will legally be able to protect themselves as well as their belongings. Either way i will be moving to Austin or San Diego in 2 years. Even in the suburbs around the city it's getting bad.
I mean I've lived around Chicago my whole life (and now in the city for school) so I'm familiar with the suburban situation; it's been shitty in sections of Joliet and the near south side like Dolton and Harvey and what not. Even my buddy got jumped in Roscoe Village a couple of months ago, which is basically one of the safest neighborhoods in the city. It truly does suck because I love so much else about Chicago and the reputation we get is not representative of how many positives there are.
