5 Injured in Vegas Casino Shooting

Well that's one way to see who is lucky.

A man on a balcony over the New York-New York casino floor opened fire on the gamblers below early Friday, wounding four people before he was tackled by off-duty military reservists, police said. A fifth person was hurt in a crush of people fleeing the casino.

Boy, the US military sure is full of heroes. Wonder how many people WOULD be dead if it weren't for these soldiers.

"It was crazy, pandemonium," said Jade Jacobson, 28, a tourist from Deland, Fla., whose cousin, a dance teacher from Pennsylvania, was wounded in the leg.

See now if your cousin had been a really GOOD dancer they wouldn't have gotten shot in the leg. Most dancers are fast on their feet.

"People were running and jumping over slot machines and knocking over chairs," Jacobson said. "All I was thinking was that I could die right now."

"And then the shooting started."

How do you look at this...unlucky you got shot or luck you didn't die

in both cases it's Gods way of telling you "you should leave the casino"

All I can say is I'm glad I stick to playing in an online casino, where nothing like this can ever happen.
