Bryan Suits on what to do during an "Active shooter" event.

Last month, in response to the Westgate Shopping Center attack in Nairobi, Kenya, KFI AM640's Bryan Suits posted some advise on what to do if you find yourself stuck in your local Los Angeles mall when terrorists attempt to take it over. In light of this week's shooting at LAX I decided to re-post what Bryan originally had written on his "Dark Secret Place" Facebook profile as it is sound advise for us "high valve soft targets".

Some thoughts: you've probably been to the same mall many dozens, if not hundreds of times. Next time you go, check out some of those long corridors that lead to bathrooms/maintenance rooms/loading docks. 
-Do the doors open or are they locked?
-Will the alarm sound?
-Who the F cares, I'm being shot at?

If a similar attack happens, it will sound like D Day. It won't go "pop.....pop,pop......pop." It will go "(insert sound of D Day here) "

-You will freeze. Get over it. Embrace the part of your mind that is quietly saying "This shit is real." Reject the LOUDER voice that says "It's a TV shoot. This is Glendale."
