Situation Report: Practice With a Purpose

Practice with a Purpose By Thom Bolsch and Ron Mullins   One topic we’ve discussed in a number of our articles is practice.  If we don’t practice to respond to an incident; we will not be able to effectively react to an incident.  In any emergency situation, we will fall back to how we were trained.  If we have not trained, we could freeze or panic; not the best of responses.

School Shooting

By Ron Mullins and Thom Bolsch Last month an individual took a rifle that was legally purchased, entered their former high school and committed murder. Those are the facts surrounding this incident. The resultant media circus would lead you to believe that we have an epidemic of firearm induced murders at public institutions of learning.  They are promoting a public outrage oriented around “Our Children vs. The Second Amendment”.   But is that the real topic [...]
