The shooting incident at the church in South Carolina on June 17 vividly illustrates the need for you to be armed. And be armed all the time. We tend to think of churches a safe havens, but in reality, in today’s world there is no safe place. If there had been one person in that service who was armed the situation would very likely turned out a lot differently. While our Active Shooter/Terrorist Response class was developed months prior to June 17, the occurrence of events like this reinforce the need for you to train so that you are able to respond effectively in a situation like that. You may well be the first responder in an active shooter or lone wolf terrorist attack!
