Let’s say you carry a concealed firearm – what do you do if you’re confronted with the worst-case scenario of an active shooter? Do you have any training to deal with that type of an event?
Sage Dynamics recently started offering their Active Shooter Citizen Response course specifically for the concealed carry community. The course description says it all:
Over half of all Active Shooter events in the US have been stopped by a citizen, or citizens. The reason for this is that many who carry out mass murder choose soft targets where there is likely to be little or no law enforcement presence. Because the average Active Shooter event lasts between 4-11 minutes, and average law enforcement response varies greatly; the responsible citizen has every right to be trained to confront an active shooter situation as they are the likely line of defense between an armed threat and unarmed innocents and loved ones. Using extensive law enforcement response training and research into the last 50 years of Active Shooter events as a model, Sage Dynamics has developed this course to provide the CCW community with a fundamental skill set that will enable them to act, if they choose, in the event of an active shooter and potentially stop the threat without waiting needless minutes for a law enforcement response.
