Welcome to Chicago, if you survive, we hope you’ll come back real soon and give us another chance to rub you out.
Chicago is the perfect breeding and feeding ground for criminals. Illinois law does not let honest citizens carry weapons of any sort for protection. Illinois releases felons from prison early because of budget problems. Chicago police are short handed because of budget problems.
My ever-humble advice is to keep your tourism money out of Illinois (especially Chicago) and to go visit somewhere safe.
