Said earlier in the post, I actually live in the next town over from Deerfield, in Highland Park. What people I hope realize is that this area (Deerfield, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Lake Bluff, Winnetka, Glencoe, Wilmette) is what makes up the North Shore of Chicago. I live in HP, used to live in LF. This is such a joke bc these are historically 99.9% safe. Old, old money families and then some. Think the Sears, Walgreens, wrigleys, Emanuel’s (as in Rahm)...... like this is the last place that could be made any safer than it already is. Where I live in HP, majority Jewish and Democrat, as are most of the other ones I mentioned, with the exception of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. Someone’s already asked in this thread if the new law is gonna cause an upsurge in home sales. Unfortunately it won’t, bc the schools in the district rank in the highest in the country. For instance, my daughter’s 3rd grade teacher (10 years ago) was making 82k a year whereas her 4th grade one retired that year at 120k. Point being, these dumbasses around here will gladly give up their weapons, if many are to be found around here to begin with. That’s what’s so funny about this being in Deerfield. It’s bc NOTHING happens around here. The last “big news” murder involved some kids from HP but the murder took place in Evanston or Skokie, which both are closer to the city and far, far removed from the bubble of Highland Park, Deerfield, Lake Forest, etc.... No matter how safe it is around here, ie doors unlocked even at night, I despise living here for this exact reason. The democrats in my town drive me apeshit and have been doing so for the better part of the last 10 years. Like, some of you guys wouldn’t believe what I’ve gone through around here via the school system and I’m 99.9% sure it’s because of my southern accent. Burns me up!

@Joe10jo As a South Sider, I gotta ask: What is it like living up there? All my old Jew bosses live up there and I've visited, but living there has to be a trip- especially being from the South.

How entitled and out-of-touch are these people? They seem very removed from reality. This unenforceable gun law is an example. It isn't to target locals, it's those spooks that pass through, I'd guess? I don't get why you would want the world to know that all these rich, old, Jewish people are sitting in their mansions, with no weapons. What is to be gained in a low-violence community by turning-in guns? Where is the logic at???

So the good thing is that it’s almost as good as 99% safe. Like I can leave my door unlocked at night. And that’s what makes the gun confiscation so absurd, don’t you think? It makes me wonder if the next thing coming is a school shooting drill that goes live. My husband grew up in Lake Forest which is old money and I have to tell you that the kids there are pretty respectful but here in Highland Park where we’ve lived the last 10 years the kids call their parents “motherfucker’s” and shit like that. None of the kids do anything to help out around the house, the parents and schools enable it. BIG TIME! Pisses me off so bad! My fam lives paycheck to paycheck but all the other families take like 4 major vacations a year and not to Florida but to places like the Galápagos Islands. None of the mothers work. All they do is yoga and fundraise. What kills me is that most of the moms have law degrees etc so all the money spent on school for nothing. It’s pretty much everything you’d suspect. The buggiest surprise may be this: the parents in Highland Park (99.9% Jewish) are way more generous than parents in Lake Forest (100% Wasp). Total shocker, right? My one daughter has friends who’s parents have paid her way on lots of vacations like to Aspen or NYC. To me, that’s the main shocker!!

What else do you wanna know?

All the rich people have to do is pay the law enforcement or "retired" law enforcement as private security. They can have guns on call. In almost any city, you can call the police and actually rent policemen for events by the hour.
