Probably preaching to the choir but maybe someone other than yourself can glean some useful information from this PSA:

http://www.co.washington.or.us/Sheriff/News/upload/The-5-Stages-of-an-Active-Shooter-2.pdf


The sooner an on- or off-duty officer or citizen intervenes with an effective, efficient act of courage, the fewer casualties there will be. In past incidents, active shooters have been thwarted by police officers, security guards, school teachers and students. One principal recently died successfully stopping an active shooter in a Wisconsin school. There is a risk in doing something, but the greatest risk lies in doing nothing.

I would have bolded "or citizen"

Who would have thought such logical thinking could lie so close to Portland; a den of hipsters, dirty hippies and idiot progressives that rivals San Francisco.
