Tips For Survival Before and During A Mass-Shooting Incident

We have weather safety tips- fire safety tips- driving safety tips- etc.- now we have safety tips if you're in a mass-shooting incident like what occurred in Tucson Arizona last Saturday...


The MARSHALL (MO) DAILY NEWS passes along such shooting-safety tips from "James Simmerman, director of Creative Management Consultants and former Marshall Police Chief."


I won't post all the article's tips- but here's a few:

--Be aware of your environment and any possible dangers...
--Take note of the two nearest exits in any facility you visit...

--If you are in an office, stay there and secure the door...

--If you are in a hallway, get into a room and secure the door...

--As a last resort, attempt to take the active shooter down. When the shooter is at close range and you cannot flee, your chance of survival is much greater if you try to incapacitate him/her.


It won't be long before the TSA is patting us down everywhere and more freedoms are lost forever because of a few nut-cases...
