The Gonzo Lounge>The ONLY Thing To Know To Survive An Active Shooter

Just got these in my email and thought they were interesting and informative. Tim Larkin is a self defense guy I have been learning from (Target Focus Training) for years. His guest is an expert on this and he only uses facts. Perhaps this could save some lives. Share with everyone you know.

Maybe. But if you accidentally push the shark button on the vending machine, youíll wish you were only dealing with an active shooter.

I feel like I can hold my breath pretty well.
Funny thing is that he talks about that. Often times the shooter will shoot again to make sure you're dead.

The major thing they talk about is acting quickly. It also deals with the authorities and their plans to deal with active shooters. We have had training on active shooter scenarios at work. I assume many people have these days. But the problem is that often times the people in charge don't really have a good plan to deal with these things.

Problem is that the answer is pretty clearly that nothing else really works but having armed security in high risk areas to immediately engage the shooter. That has a pretty high cost that is extremely unlikely to ever be needed. There's a value for having peace of mind, though.

I'd have to look up stats to be sure, but I'd be pretty confident you'd be more likely to die from an accidental gun discharge than from an active shooter.
More likely to die from shit falling out of the sky on your head than from an active shooter.

Following up on my own post, this source says there were 458 accidental gun deaths in the U.S. in 2018. In 2017 (the year of the Las Vegas shooting), there were 117 fatalities from mass shootings in the U.S. according to this source.

So, yeah. You're at least 4x as likely to die from an accident than from a mass shooter.

Maybe Lee Harvey Oswald was just a real butterfingers?

Not really. If I don't own any guns, and don't ever go hunting or do any of the things that would put me at risk of an accidental gun death, I'd say that number goes way down, probably even lower than the chance of being part of a mass shooting.

The ONLY thing to know? Why not more than one thing? Seems like a complex and spontaneous issue that might require knowing more than one thing.

If you fire upon yourself accidently you should definitely return fire on yourself to keep us all on the safe side.

Probably a smart plan. Nobody turns down a good blowjob.
