I’m taking the Illinois bar exam Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, so I won’t be posting anything new until Monday, August 3rd. I’ll also be unable to moderate comments or answer emails during this time. But rest assured, any comments/emails will be attended to upon my return.
An interesting note: Since I’ll be taking the bar exam in Chicago, where it is a misdemeanor to have a handgun or an unregistered shotgun/rifle, this will be the first time in quite a while that I won’t have a self defense gun on hand.
It is painfully obvious that Chicago’s criminals ignore those gun bans, and Chicago’s police are unable to protect its citizens. Sadly, Chicago politicians and so-called civil rights leaders continue to push for these laws, which only server to disarm victims. While I believe it is statistically unlikely that I’ll suffer violent attack by criminals during the couple of days that I stay in Chicago to take the bar exam, it is sill unnerving that I’ll be without a means of defending myself or my loved ones while in the “murder capitol” of the United States.
