America saw yet another mass shooting the other day–this time at a gaming convention in Jacksonville, Florida. David Katz, 24, was apparently distraught over losing in a gaming tournament. So he pulled out a gun and shot 12 people. Two were killed, the others were wounded and are expected to live. The shooter then killed himself.

Is your church, hospital, school, nursing home, library, business prepared to deal with an active shooter? Do you know how to take down and disarm a shooter? We all need to think through these things carefully.

I am certified to teach the ALICE Training course which teaches how to respond to active shooters. I am also a certified self defense instructor. If you would like to know more about how you or your group can effectively respond and deal with such horrible situations, feel free to contact me at
