Metal detectors are not a bad idea. I'm wondering what the silent county commissioners are going to do to address this issue of guns on the strip. Like I always said before the elected people don't care about you or me. County commissioner's where are you new policies for strip safety???

Even if they don't care about the people you'd think they would care about this, it's where all their money comes from.

How many shootings on the strip in the last 2 months? Is it getting to the point where in order for people to walk on the strip they have to pass through metal detectors?

Raiders fans aren't here yet. No fans at the stadium. Just wait till a few home games then you will see what it's like to be in the WILD WILD WEST.

You can thank all the BLM/ANTIFA gangs that moved here to Vegas. People keep blaming Las Vegas Raiders fans. Its not. Even where we live, we now have new tenants that many of us whom have lived here for a few years, DO NOT LIKE. This is including blacks that have lived here and are watching our area turn into the Ghetto. Management/Owners of the community are in San Diego, and don't seem to care at all. But, they will should something happen here. Many of us are NOT happy with the new breed of tenants. We know whom they are.
