Yes. East Vegas from the middle on up is nasty and dangerous. It's mostly Hispanic. The kind that look like they were in Training Day during the bath tub scene. The middle above the airport is all AA and should be avoided like the plague. There was just a double homicide/rape here when this homey high on PCP and other drugs broke in and offed this Hispanic family with a claw hammer. The father is still recovering but his wife and ten year old daughter are gone. There was absolutely no motive for the crime.
Everyone packs heat around here. The southern part is still ok and the west side isn't gone yet. We live in the N.W. corner right on the edge of town and it's getting kind of ghetto but it doesn't look like it because the houses are still new. There is a bat and shotgun next to my bed.
I don't have a gun but it's been on my "to buy list." I'd like to get a concealed weapon permit first though so I could just keep it on me. I don't frequent bad areas, but there have been a handful of times I wish I had one just for comfort. When my daughter arrives this fall, I'll probably end up with something just to keep in the house for protection.
