Tackling Active Shooters as Self Defense
This is a really good topic. Can I just tweak the verbiage a bit?
The "threat" and "weapon" go hand in hand. If you can take him/her out, do so in whichever way possible. You won't know how unless its happening before your own two eyes.
Also, the threat is a whole. The weapon being a gun or knife is inanimate and can be taken away. Placed in good hands and used against the threat.
The "weapon" can also be the person being a nut job and killing random people.
However you see it in your eyes. Everyone varies.
Whatever poison you prefer, going for the weapon or person...you'll be generally going for the threat. Period. It's just verbiage.
