Las Vegas goes to great lengths to hide that fact that it is one of the most dangerous cities in America. While the Strip is relatively safe, you don’t have to wander off more than a block to experience the real Las Vegas.
Nevada does not recognize Texas Concealed Carry Licenses. Travel to Las Vegas at your own risk. I won’t be going for the first time in over 30 years though I do have tentative plans to attend the annual SHOT show in January 2013. I carry under provisions of the LEOSA and would not travel to Las Vegas unless I was armed.
Last month a masked man attempting to rob a Dairy Queen with a samurai sword was shot in the chest and killed by an armed employee.
The incident happened around noon on a Sunday at the Dairy Queen on South Maryland Parkway near Karen Avenue, which is not far from the Strip.
The stored employee fired two shots at the suspect was transported to Sunrise Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police say the shooting was self-defense and no charges have been filed against the clerk.
In general Nevada has Second Amendment friendly laws and is a shall issue state. Texas honors Nevada concealed carry permits and I don’t know why Nevada does not reciprocate. Legally armed citizens may carry guns into casinos and most other public establishments in Nevada.
Nevada honors concealed carry permits from:
Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia
