Surviving A Mass Shooting

Hopefully you’re never in this position, but if so, here’s what you’ll need to do…

In the last article we talked about avoiding a mass shooting, in this one we will discuss what to do if you are ever caught in one.

We pray no one’s ever caught in a mass shooting, but we cannot just pray. If you find yourself in this scary situation here’s what you need to do.

The Most Sensible Move – ESCAPE

In the last article we mentioned making sure you know where all of the exits are and to stay close to them. When bullets start flying, grab your family and GET THE HELL OUT!

Your Second Option – TAKE COVER

This isn’t an action movie, you can’t just hide behind a thin door or turned over table. Get yourself behind SOLID cover. That means concrete walls, a different floor altogether, etc.

Do not close your eyes, cover your face, or freeze in place. You need to think fast!

When You Have No Other Choice – FIGHT!

Some critics say this isn’t a wise plan. However, when you have no where to run and no where to hide, the last thing you want to be is a sitting duck.

Now remember this is your absolute LAST option and you should consider all other options first. If you have your weapon and hopefully you have been training, you may have a chance.


And the last piece of advice left to give is NEVER LET YOUR GUARD DOWN.

Even when the attack is over stay alert and don’t consider yourself safe until you are home or police say otherwise.
