  1. North Las Vegas should be fenced out of the rest of the city, sheesh!

  2. Really Omar.....am a resident here in North Town and read about just as many shootings in the other cities under the Las Vegas metropolitan area as there are here. I guess that goes for Aliante also....as it is North Las Vegas. North Las Vegas is larger in area than the actual city boundaries of Las Vegas, though what is classified as Las Vegas in most of the articles is Unincorporated Clark County...."The Strip" does not even belong to Las Vegas, another portion of unincorporated Clark County (Paradise). Get to know your municipal boundaries before you start spouting about what to wall off.

  3. ~80 people are killed with guns every single day in the U.S.

  4. And Mark, more than that are killed each day by (take your pick) cars, alcohol, tobacco, drowning, poison (the list goes on)

    It seems that guns are about the least dangerous things in our daily lives.
