I came across this article on things to consider if you, as a concealed carrier decide to engage an active shooter. For me, this definitely reinforces my opinion of getting my family and friends the fuck out and only engaging if needed.
Still, even with that stance, this article explained some things that have to be considered if that active shooter does cross my path. My big takeaways were:
- Act fast and decisively
- Get close because the bad guy has a rifle and I have a pistol
- Even doing everything right, I still might get shot by the cops – accept it
There is a lot more in the article, so read the whole thing.
