The Boston Marathon; Sandy Hook Elementary School; the Aurora, Colorado movie theater; Columbine High School...sadly, most Americans are very familiar with these names and the tragic events that took place at each event or location. Mass shootings, home invasions, and other attacks on the general public are no longer the rare exception they were decades ago. No one wants to feel like a potential victim in their neighborhood, but what can the average person do to stay safe? The authors of this book give us the answer to that question. Inside, they take the successful strategies that have been used to avert planned school shootings, bombings, and other deadly events and demonstrate how these techniques can be utilized by the average person.
