Las Vegas tourism sees changes in aftermath of shooting

Recommended Posts

Las Vegas' tourism sector is bracing for changes in the aftermath of the massacre that killed 58 people at an outdoor music festival.

Analysts who closely track the finances of the city's casino companies say Las Vegas will see a short-term dip in visitors in response to the shooting.

Casinos and police may have to impose new security measures after gunman Stephen Paddock brought more than 20 rifles into his hotel room and drove a car filled with explosives into the parking garage.

The "What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas" slogan has been put on hold, as has one unveiled in the weeks before the shooting by the owner of Mandalay Bay that said, "We are not in the hotel business ... we are in the holy s--- business."

Electronic billboards that typically promote restaurants, concerts, a topless pool and other entertainment are now showing a dedicated phone line for victims and their families, along with words of appreciation for first responders and casino employees.

"We've been there for you during the good times. Thank you for being there for us now," reads a black-and-white billboard message with the city skyline and "#VegasStrong."

See the red lined text. You know where they are going with this. Got to make them feel safe..... right!

Oh, I think this is very much not on hold. 

I just had deja vu.  Weird. 

Of course they are going to go for sweeping security reform, the security industrial complex will grow to the size of the Military Industrial Complex and beyond.  People will pay for it because it will be through private security firms and then there is all the training for their brown shirts to search and make everything you do a miserable experience instead of a fun vacation.  Just like TSA has done at the airports. What a shit experience to try and go anywhere on a plane.  As many people as I know who refuse to fly anymore, I don't know how the airlines can keep their jets full of people, but apparently they do?  

You will pay for your imprisonment, same as always.
