Guns Save Lives - Nevada Style

Have a new incident here that is raising the awareness level but the questions as well. I personally think I would feel threatened too. We have a 6 foot stone wall for thee sides of the yard and then a locked gate on the house side so if I saw someone weird there would be some issues.


Shooting of possible intruder prompts more residents to get armed

 

 Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Las Vegas resident took matters into his own hands by fatally shooting a possible intruder on Tuesday morning. 

It happened around 9:30 a.m. in the 2100 block of Spurs Court, near Sahara Avenue and Hualapai Way on the far west side of town. 

The victim was shot in the back yard of a home. Police believe the victim had no right to be on the property and did not know the resident who fired the shots.

The resident called 911 and claims to have shot in self defense.

People who live nearby say this is the last thing they expected to happen in their quiet neighborhood.

"You're talking nine in the morning, in broad daylight," said Stacy Hawkins. "This is an upscale neighborhood. It proves it can happen anywhere. It's kind of scary. It definitely makes you think."

The incident has prompted many residents to question their own safety, and the protective measures they have in place at their homes.

Bob Irwin, the owner of The Gun Store, says things like this typically cause an increase in gun sales.

"People realize how vulnerable they are, and want to have a gun in the house to protect themselves," Irwin says. "It's a normal reaction to crime."

"If somebody comes after me, with the intent to harm me or my family, I want to be able to protect myself and the ones I love," says Ned Barnett. "That's all I care about. That's why I'm here looking for a pistol to keep at home."

Irwin says gun sales are already up 31 percent over the same time last year.
