The hard facts people need to understand about active shooter incidents

Postby Paladin » Wed Mar 28, 2018 5:56 pm

This is a classic from Ed Monk (LTC, retired) and Karl Rehn:

Active Shooter Threat & Reaction

There were several important findings in Ed Monk's study:

Many incidents with low casualty numbers are not included in lists of active shooter incidents compiled by the FBI, journalists and other groups. The FBI definition requires four (4) people to be shot in an incident. Several of the incidents discussed in Ed’s presentation – incidents where active killers were stopped early – fall below the threshold.


A summary of data from incidents where armed people on site took action shows single-digit death/injury rates....When the official “wait for police” plan is followed, the results are far, far worse.


Strict gun laws (like in Maryland) do not stop school shootings.

An armed person present when the killing begins can stop it sooner and faster, reducing the number of victims to single digits.
