Can't walk outside as a civilian without anything less than a sidearm and Kevlar these days.

More from WGN:
Disgraced Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed guns – not criminals – for the murder of the young police officer.
“We have a common enemy: it’s guns & the violence they bring.” Lightfoot said.
Some say we don't do enough for the police. Others say we do too much. All of this must stop.
We have a common enemy: it's guns & the violence they bring.
