As of 04/22/2020, we have had 11 confirmed defensive gun uses by armed citizens in Nevada. While the vast majority of these incidents go unreported, even to police, we track the incidents that make the news or we can personally verify.
This time last year, we were at 10 DGUs, so there is no real statistical difference. None of these instances seem to be related to the COVID-19 crisis so far as we can tell. Here is just a summary of some of the incidents since the shutdown.
