Considering I help friends who live in the city, and have to go there for work, avoiding it is not possible. (At least I am armed, when going for work.)3 dead after shooting on I-96 in Detroit: What we know
Gunfire erupts on busy Detroit expressway
This has become almost a daily/nightly occurrence in and around Detroit. Be careful out there. Better yet stay the Hell out of and away from Detroit!
It's really nice that you help your friends, be careful! I grew up (1950~1980) on Detroit's N-W corner (in the old Redfford area) back when it was actually really nice and safe. I started carrying a gun in 1977. My employment allowed me to obtain a CCW (Carry Concealed Weapon) permit (called a CPL today). I've carried ever since regardless of where I lived. I've pretty much stayed out of Detroit since 1980 except when going to Canada, which I haven't done since 9/11. I never had to use it, hope I never do.Considering I help friends who live in the city, and have to go there for work, avoiding it is not possible. (At least I am armed, when going for work.)
