Carry pepper spray. - Mostly illegal in Chicago, unless they changed the law in recent years.

Carry a good flashlight. - Mostly illegal in Chicago - A few years back they banned any Mag-lite type flashlight (metal body) over 2 (or 3?) cells. EVEN FOR THE POLICE!! Though I think the cops pretty much ignore that law.

Carry a legal knife/knives. - Most "good" knives are illegal in Chicago

Time for the quiz. . Can you list 3 reasons why I DON'T live in Chicago anymore?
