In case you aren't familiar with the story: Deadly weekend of shootings unfolds in Portland | City Center News I wasn't there when it happened, but I'm in that area often (99% of the time I'm carrying). These stories always make me wonder what I would do if I was in the middle of that. If you aren't familiar with the area, this is a fairly popular spot on Fridays/Saturday nights with 10-15 bars that are usually pretty crowded, so there were probably bystanders everywhere. I can imagine 2 different scenarios that I could find myself in. The first is if I don't see where the shooters are but am in close proximity. In this case I'd probably just try to get out of there as soon as possible. I'm guessing most people here would do the same thing. The 2nd would be if I'm standing close to one of the shooters. I'm not quite sure what I would do in this situation. If I draw my weapon and point it at the shooter, wouldn't that add more confusion and increase my probability of getting shot by the police if they are showing up? What if the shooter is an undercover cop or another CHL holder that is trying to stop the other shooter? Anyone have any thoughts? Also, please don't reply with "Well I just wouldn't go to that part of town". These types of things happen all over, and you can't stay home for your entire life.
