Brave Student Stops Active Shooter on Campus | Active Self Protection

In General

My hat is off to Jon Meis, the student security guard who stopped this active killer on his campus! Excellent Active Self Protection to protect himself and every student on campus that day.

What does this brave student security guard teach us about defending ourselves against an active killer like this?

1. Evil exists in our world, and no amount of wishing it away does so. Evil people do evil things, and good people must be ready and willing to stand between them and innocent people and do enough violence to stop them definitively. No amount of negotiation will make truly evil people change their ways; only those willing and able to stop them who use attitude, skills, and plan effectively can. This active killer was deranged and bent on killing people. He succeeded once and doubtless would have succeeded again if he wasn't stopped by the brave student.
