Actually, I do believe Chicago is going to be the exception to what I've seen elsewhere.
There's going to be quite a few shootings at first. Remember, the gang bangers are used to being completely in charge of any part of the city they care to take.
It'll take a bit of reeducation before they figure out the people have teeth.
The other side of that is the people in and around Chicago are so conditioned to abhor guns that there won't be near as many carry permits there as there normally are elsewhere. It'll take (my guess) a year or so of getting used to "Hey, people actually carry firearms and are NOT criminals. Lemme see about this" frame of mind.
