Safety Group Survive A Mass Shooting By Hiding

posted on August 21, 2015
An organization in Ellicott City, Md., called the National Center for Citizen Safety has been formed for the purpose of educating ordinary people on what they should do in an “active shooter” scenario. Their advice is to “run away from the shooter and get help. If you can’t run, try to hide where the shooter can’t see you, like behind a door or a large object. And if danger is imminent … you should fight with whatever you can get your hands on to stop the shooter.”

Forgive us, but these seem like rather obvious directions to someone who doesn’t have a gun—and they point out just how helpless an unarmed victim would be in such a situation. If the National Center for Citizen Safety really wants to keep people safe, it might consider taking some advice from the National Rifle Association.
