With all that talk from Milo the nazi and MFF releasing that statement over that idiot. I know some have concern over their safety, like when Furry Broadcast Network said they had changed their plans by not going to MFF this year. That is their own business, but I have no concern and let me tell you why.
Security at MFF is tight, in addition to the 1000s of cameras placed in and around both the Hyatt Regency and the nearby convention center. Armed security is always available in the form of both armed security by the hotel and the local law enforcement agencies. I personally saw Rosemont Police, Cook County Sheriff Officers, the Illinois State Police, TSA, and Homeland Security at the convention last year. A dealer in the Dealer’s Area even said to me that in addition there were undercover FBI and Secret Service agents there, many of who were turned furry by the convention due to the fact fursuits were being ordered.
There have been 2 acts of pure idiocy since the gas attack. One was the Confederate Flag Fursuiter and that uniformed neo-nazi shouting racist rants. The Police were there during the acts and both were arrested and banned permanently. It wasn’t like anyone had to wait for the cops, they were there less than 2 minutes according to witnesses. Which means they had to be there On-Site.
