If you aren't aware of the increased violence on the Strip, you must not be following the news. The pandemic shutdown crushed the gaming industry, so they dropped room rates to attract customers. Unfortunately, those customers are low class pieces of trash; many of whom I'm assuming belong to a demographic who commit over 50% of the murders.
Wynn and Encore is installing metal detectors and searching bags. This isn't to catch people bringing in their own booze. Other casinos will probably follow. Sure, that might discourage Darnell Douchebag from carrying, but that also disarms normal people who want to go out on the Strip without being defenseless. Disarming criminals means disarming law abiding people.
With the increased delays and humiliation entering a casino, people who aren't trash are going to be turned off. First the mask and temperature check non-sense, then treating people who are there to blow money like they are gang members at a ghetto school?
Will Wynn have the balls to allow concealed weapon permittees to carry? Of course not, although that would be an expedient solution for all. So if you want to visit the Strip, you're gonna have to do it disarmed. The heartless, idiot executives only care about what happens inside their casino (or from their 32nd floor). Regardless of whatever theatrics the casinos put in place, the violence won't stop until the trash stops coming.
Once again, gun owners will pay the price for failed Democrat policies and faceless corporations too stupid to treat the gun issue rationally. Should Democrats retain control of the Legislature, preemption will be partially repealed and Clark County will certainly enact carry restrictions on the Strip.
We need the mob back.
