 Some Americans are placing the blame on guns and others on SSRIs. It’s a very strange time.

What does the next evolution of America look like? Do we move past this situation or do we harden to deal with it? While mass shootings are not something we deal with all the time, they are so terrifying and random that it’s hard for us not to prioritize them. The media coverage is also very thorough. 

How do you react in a mass shooting? What can you do to help and to stay alive?

The Shooter

You have very few options when it comes to dealing with a shooter. You need to get behind cover or get away from the shooter as quickly as possible. If you have a firearm you have to be very careful if you choose to engage the shooter. You could be shot, shoot someone else or be mistaken for the shooter! 

It’s a scary proposition.

The Injured

No one is going to help those who are injured until the shooter is stopped. The scene must be safe for medical professionals to arrive on the scene. 

Americans need to understand first aid and they need to be able to help people who have been shot or injured in the attack. This would be a game-changer for the success of active shooters. Fewer people would die if more people were prepared to render aid. 

The Police

When dealing with the police you have to understand that they have no idea who the shooter is. They dont wanna die either and they will be on edge. Be sure you do just what they say and keep your hands up and fingers spread.
