For your safety, I would like to recommend you carry some kind of protection as Chicago has developed into an overall high crime area regardless of where you live within the city limits --- a small pistol that can be easily concealed is my first choice...or at least a small can of pepper spray.

oh good GOD!! I'm pretty sure the OP lives in NAPERVILLE! If Chicagoans are so unfriendly and awful, that's the LAST thing we need - a bunch of mean people walking around with concealed weapons! Shootouts on every street corner over parking spaces.

You may not be aware of the fact , that, the National Guard wanted to get involved to help Chicago with its crime .... but then Mayor Daley refused the offer . Chicago is a cesspool of unmanageable crime and filth . Its a darn good idea to carry protection if you are going to walk the streets of Chicago .... better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6 from using a gun to protect your life.

When did that happen? I've lived here for a long time. Never once felt I needed to carry a gun.

Wait a minute, that wasn't me who said that about the National Guard!

Get some sort of protection if youre going to live in any major city..especially Chicago, Miami, New York City, Philidelphia, or Boston.

Thanks for the article, though the National Guard didn't ask to help according to this. Again, I have never needed to carry a gun or weapon in Chicago. Where did you live in Chicago?

The article i read said the N.G. offered to help.

Look, get SOME kind of protection before you wish you had. Its a cesspool of crime and immorality in Chicago. Just because you havent had anything happen to you YET, only means you are very lucky.

Really? The article said a politician suggested the National Guard help.

As for immorality, I've seen far more strip clubs and disgusting behavior in Florida than Chicago.

Where in Chicago did you live?
