Dealing With Active Shooters

 I've seen a few articles lately on dealing with mass shooting situations. This one seems the easiest read. All probably covered the same general stuff and pointing
out you have three possible courses of action: Run, hide or fight.

I'm not going to try and summarize here as i'm having serious keyboard issues. The article is an easy read, though.

I don't think so.

Excellent tips, especially the teamwork. Thanks for posting this Fred. Let's hope team drills become popular, conceal carry training the norm and constitutional respect the buzzword.
For those who do conceal carry, there are many classes by cops you can refresh with on YouTube, and many ranges that offer real life courses. It's not just target practice anymore.

that might well be true, but even iv open or concealed carry was legl for everyoe here, I suspect few would take ADVANAGE OF it. cARRYING a gun everywhere is a hassle.

Fight or flight. We have generally lost that natural response hence freeze and do nothing.

"The Art of Manliness'?? Really, Fred. Tell your "manly " friends to stop letting the NRA write the gun laws. Those nuts will turn this country back into a bad version of the Wild West unless we stop them.

The Wild West had some awesome marshals & Rangers who understood & protected the constitution, not the political trends. It might be good to see the old Wild West in action again. No, actually, I'm positive of it. Go Sheriff Joe and all who are for our country, not against it.

Julie, the NRA? LOL. Those who blame the NRA instead of the criminal are what's wrong with this country.

Fred,
You are completely wrong about carrying gun is a hassle and that few people would take advantage of it. The facts prove you wrong.
I have carried concealed for 30 years and have never found it to be a problem.
The only problem I encounter is the restrictions on where I can carry. The poor folks that got killed the other day were in a gun free zone. In fact, gun free zones are where most of the mass shooting take place.
As far as your statement that most people would not take advantage of carrying a gun if they could, look at these fact for CCW's.
Just look at the #'s of permits for CCW's in states with a fraction of our population.
As a baseline, let's look at California.
As of 2014, there were only 70,234 CCW's issued,.24% of the adult Population.
Oregon has issued 211,000,7% of the adult Population.
Anti-gun Mass. has 326,000 CCW's, 6.27%
Anti-gun Conn., has 230,000 CCW's, 8.36%.
Washington has 483,000 CCW's,8.83%.
Florida has 1.4 million CCW's, Texas has just under 1 million.
California rates among the lowest, along with Hawaii, Wash.DC, New Jersey and New York.
11 states don't require a permit at all.
Obviously not a permit holders carry all the time, but there are millions that do.

Julie Timmons,the NRA did not write the 2nd amendment.
The NRA mainly fights new anti-gun legislation.
Just look at California, 75% or more of the guns made are not legal for sale in California.Many gun makers don't allow their weapons to be sold in the state because California makes them pay for an unnecessary drop test or the state makes them make a special version just for California.
The NRA didn't write those laws.
California recently passed a law, that if a few years will require each gun to make a distinguishing
mark on each case that is fired.
Problem is that no such gun is made and probably won't be. Of course this is unconstitutional, and will be overturned, but it will take awhile and law abiding citizens will pay for this.

I feel so much better that we have whack job California legislators doing that. Leland Yee was a fine example.

The NRA pushes for sanity, such as: lock up the felons, those who actually hurt others, and close the revolving door system.
I can see why certain people may have a problem with that.

I'm curious as to why they never include training for conceal carry saviors. It would be important to know who is carrying, how to stay out of their line of saving actions, and what to do if the potential hero(s) goes down. I don't recommend charging the door if you have trained conceal carriers in the area with you. I do reccomend actions to take if there is no trained cc there. We should be celebrating and helping our heroes, not interfering with their training.
I will have to presume these tips are for gun free zones, aka sitting duck galleries. This needs to be addressed, changed. Gun free zones are murder zones.
When an off duty cop is in the building, I want him armed, not only for his own protection against people with grudges, but for my protection as well.
