Future Active Shooters are Present Among Us!
It's sad that today we're pretty much unfazed when someone starts shooting people in a public area, unless it's close to our own home. Then we think, "I never thought that could happen here!" Yet it does happen all too often in America
Look at this chart of mass shootings in the U.S. since 1982. Unbelievable!
Four or more had to die to make that list. It doesn't include instances where three or fewer were killed.
So don't think for a moment it can't happen personally to you. An active-shooter situation is a clear and present danger to you, your family, your friends and your coworkers, regardless of where you live.
I saw this just last week, some numbskull in Texas was headed to shoot up a church congregation but was thankfully stopped.
The mass murder was foiled, but it should be a sobering wake-up call to us. It's a fact that you could be in danger at church, the mall, a restaurant, a theater... any public place. Yet few of us know what to do in the first few seconds, and, quite frankly, it could mean life or death.
Use us, Lord!
