Did anyone see this story? Two shooters. Two guns. Same day but very different outcomes. Here is the story of Tony Garces and his colleagues at the Faith City Mission in Amarillo Texas. Over 100 lives were at risk on February 14th, 2018 in Texas. No one died.
No two active shooter instances are EVER exactly identical. Even prescripted drills for active shooter training have mixed variables, which is why training people on how to think through responses quickly is the key to effective training. Tony Garces did not have active shooter training. He was in prison for the last four years. His first thought was to run away but he just knew he had to do something. So he turned toward the shooter.
