    I wouldn't get too alarmed about this. Vegas has been shown in these videos (along with Disneyland/world) for years, going back to just post 9/11. Always be cautious and aware, but I wouldn't change any Vegas plans because of this new video.

    They are just jealous of the 24 hour a day decadence, it's just human nature to covet what one can't have. Plus there are probably a lot of folks in Vegas who are carrying.

    Wouldn't surprise me, but it wouldn't surprise me if something happened in any other big city, either. Sign of the times unfortunately. Hammie, a gun isn't going to stop a suicide bomber strapped with shrapnel.

    A co-worker of mine had a theory: if you are smart enough to learn English and earn a trip to American soil, you are probably smart enough to figure out that booze and women are a better long term goal than blowing up.

    Some of the 9/11 crew were at strip clubs. So much for that theory

    Supposedly several of the 911 terrorists made numerous visits to las vegas, to the point that it was believed that they went there to discuss the operation, meaning that someone in the LV area was leading it, never found out who. I'm not worried.

    You cannot worry about things like this.

    Avoid Vegas as an ISIS video has been posted from there?

    You would never visit anywhere!

    Just sit at home with the curtains drawn and you are safe.

    Actually, most of those 9/11 crew thought that they would be back at the clubs the next day. Of the nineteen hijackers only a handful new what the true mission was. So number of attacks/number of opportunities = I like my odds.

    I would not let it stop me. We have actually just cancelled our Memorial Day Trip in the last few days, but that was prompted by a family emergency and not fear of terrorist attack. For those who are visiting this weekend be vigilant, but don't' forgot to have a great time. Life is way too short to let these cowards effect our lives.

    someone mentioned this to me today. I said I was not deterred, "the people just wanna roll them bones" LOL. But seriously, a good reminder to be aware of your exit options and emergency exits too.

    Shame on the new station for saying that video made Vegas a potential threat.

    Then again, people just eat this shit up. Sorry

    Of course Vegas a potential threat. Anyplace where there are a lot of people in one place is a potential threat.

    I will stay vigilant. See something, say something, drink something! :beer:

    At least they didn't appear to be hawking timeshares.

    I believe @Breeze147 said it best above.
