If you are going to engage the shooter as a concealed carry permit holder, you have to remember that there are two scenarios that you will need to remember. The first is that no one else knows you are the good guy. The second is that not everyone carrying a gun in an active shooter situation is the bad guy. Learning to understand and identify these encounters is critical to keeping yourself alive as well as keeping you out of jail for shooting another good guy.
Next week we will deal with the fight phase of an active shooter situation. Given the outcome of last Tuesdays shooting in Florida, there are some things we can learn that will keep us alive if we are ever faced with an active shooter and have no way out. Find out what to do next week. It may well save your life.
