The single most important factor in a rapid mass killer incident is time and this book provides advice for the armed or unarmed citizen and the steps that one can take to increase his or her chances of survival. The average active killer will kill or wound between four and five people a minute. Police reaction time varies from a couple of minutes to half an hour. The best way to stop these murders is to have someone close to the scene with a gun and the training to use it. The book describes many major incidents and what can be learned from them and also includes chapters that deal with lone wolf attacks, gun-free zones, and the type of incidents that are likely to be seen in the future.

One of the best-kept secrets in America is how often and how effectively ordinary citizens defend themselves with firearms against criminal attack or criminal threat. Criminology professor Gary Kleck of Florida State University estimates that each year about 2.5 million ordinary people in the United States use firearms in confrontations with criminals. In the most cases, a shot is not fired and the incident is not reported to police. Along with the bias of the mainstream media against portraying guns in a positive light, this results in these incidents occurring below the public's radar. The second edition of this comprehensive look at self-defense with firearms lifts the veil by recounting some of these incidents, from warding off a burglar in the home to coming to the aid of a police officer in jeopardy. Each incident is put into context with other self-defense actions and features descriptions of ordinary citizens to determine why they did what they did. The stories are rounded out by suggestions, often from the participants themselves, about what they might have done differently. The book has been updated with several newer and more timely stories.

Examining nearly 60 mass shootings that have occurred in the United States since 1982, this book focuses on the actions taken and decisions made by those who survived these horrific attacks. Armed with this new information, the old axiom “fight or flight” is dispelled or at least modified for this new breed of killer. Fight by yourself and you are almost assuredly going to join the ranks of the victims if not the overall body count; flee and present a target for the killer or draw his attention, and chances are you will not make it out alive. This book is comprised of vital information gleaned from survivors who have successfully endured some of the most tragic and violent incidents in US history over the past 40 years. Mass Shootings: Six Steps to Survival presents an easy-to-understand model for every citizen of nearly any age. Armed with this vital information, citizens will be able to learn from the actual experiences of mass shooting survivors and understand both successful and unsuccessful tactics which have been utilized by these individuals in past incidents. How would I respond to a heavily-armed gunman who is determined to kill as many people as possible? What would I do if I were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time: in a crowded movie theater, at a popular concert, out celebrating at a city festival, or simply eating lunch with my child at school? What do I do? Do I have the knowledge and skills necessary to survive an attack? How do I save myself and help others? All of these questions and more are answered in Mass Shootings: Six Steps to Survival, a book written specifically to provide the information and tools necessary to survive a mass shooting or active shooter assault.
