Lowering victim count at Active Shooter attacks is not about emotion or politics. It’s about simple TIME & MATH. Unfortunately, emotion and politics will distract most Americans and most leaders from doing the simple mathematical analysis needed to understand the problem, then use that understanding to craft response plans that will minimize victim counts.
Historical data shows us that if we let the killer shoot people for 1 minute before we stop him, we can expect 8-16 victims.
If we let him shoot people for 2 minutes, we should expect 14-22 victims.
If we let him shoot people for 3 minutes, we should expect 18-26 victims.
If we let him shoot people for 5 minutes, which we do FAR too often, we should expect around 30 victims.
Simple math shows us that the quicker we stop the killer after he starts his attack, the lower the victim count will be.
