6 Things Your Children Must Know To Be Prepared For A School Shooting

schoolroom

Talk to your children about hearing the popping of a firearm in an area it should NOT be sounding and practice drills at home with them to hear (you fake a popping sound) and them run into the opposite direction.

2. Escape – The Best Option

In studying every school shooting that has occurred in the United States, as well as many that have happened in other parts of the world, I have come to the conclusion that escaping the school is the best option for individual students in a school shooting situation. Virtually all students who get out of the school (even if they have already been shot) survive.

Learn about escape locations for your child.

    Great advice. ALICE training works for a reason, and it encompasses many of these points.

      WOW. We didn’t know about ALICE. Just searched Google and read all about their program. Thank you for the information.

    While your description is molsty accurate, you neglect the thrill of a trigger that, when caressed with the gentlest of intention, goes “Bang!” Hell, my subconscious doesn’t even know when it’s gonna break.When I take first-timers to the range, the free pistol is the *last* thing we shoot, and I show them how light the trigger is, everyone makes it go “click” (on an empty chamber) the first three “shots” I make them dry-fire and, even then, a good portion of the first shots go into the dirt before the sights come onto the target.It’s a fabulous reinforcement to Rule #3, “Keep your finger *OFF* the trigger till your sights are on the target.”The only way to keep it from being boring (when shooting) is to have a shot plan so meticulous that it keeps your mind engaged until those few seconds of silence “in the aiming area”…. … Bang!
