    Sit and die or fight and die. What to do during active shooting

    A good LEO buddy of mine just shared this article. I think it does a good job of outlining what ya should do before and during an active shooter attack. The article has links to more articles throughout the writing. Sit back and do some reading this morning. With the world the way it is, its best to have an idea of what to do. Hopefully we never end up "in the wrong place, wrong time".

    It depends on the situation with me, flee if possible or die on my feet with a gun in my hand

    The article puts Fighting as your 3rd and final option.

    Movie theater shootings move fighting back to the first option for me. A gun man between me and the only exits doesn't leave much choice.

    If escape is off the table, then I'd like to be able to go out fighting. Just sitting there letting someone execute you is a option reserved for a liberal. If I have to go, I'm going to take someone with me - I hope.

    I most often think of this situation when sitting in church, as I sit on the end of the pew (actually now a row of chairs, because the previous pastor thought pews made it feel too much like a church) so I can leave a little early to make coffee for my Sunday School Class following the early service. My pretty little wife, sits to the right of me.

    If a bad guy was coming down the aisle, I would try to give it a last ditch effort to tackle him as hard as I could, and hope the other old farts would follow my action. I would probably be hopeful he had not been practicing shooting targets in slow motion!

    If he is looking at me ........ I'm counting on you, and vice verse. The wife tells me I tend to stick out in a crowd.

    Good article. Being armed and trained makes every choice more effective.
