    How to survive?
    Never have your back to the door
    Try to sit as far from the door(s) as possible
    Always know where the exit is
    Carry your phone on you
    ALWAYS go armed

    You may not live, but those increase your chances more than anything else.
    Want to increase the odds? Hang out with friends that also carry a firearm. :D

    Well, other than the report being VERY loose with the definition of a 'mass shooting' (so far as going against the FBI definition), I can say one way to survive 'mass shootings' is to avoid the following cities - as noted in the BS report from the story - I selected the cities who were repeat offenders:

    Baltimore, MD (7 listed)
    Bronx and Brooklyn, NY (7 listed)
    Chicago, IL (8 listed)
    Detroit, MI (6 listed)
    Indianapolis, IN (4 listed)
    Los Angeles, CA (3 listed)
    Miami, FL (5 listed)
    New Orleans, LA (6 listed)
    Newark, NJ (3 listed)
    St. Louis, MO (5 listed)
    Stockton, CA (4 listed)

    Hmmm, are there any patterns here? Well, I see a few patterns:

    1. Almost every city on the list is a medium to large city
    2. Almost every city on the list is in a state with more restrictive gun control
    3. Almost every city on the list is controlled by Democrats

    It seems to me that there are 3 big things to avoid that might help increase your chances to avoid a mass shooting. YMMV.

    The easiest way is to avoid cities and any venue that would be news worthy.

    200 or so people die every year in mass shootings?

    2500 die from choking! Maybe we need a public safety notice on how to eat our Mc-nuggets?
    Seams to me they are to worried about what we put in our bodies. But not how we get it in there.:s0140:

    carry extra ammo... Stay close to your trunk monkey. Make sure he has extra mags. Buy something that will drop a critter larger than a mouse.

    If you own anything in 5.56 or 9mm... Buy something bigger and quit being a kitten.

    Got something bigger?... Walk tall. Shoot and hit it on the first shot. Watch the cowards flee.

    (Die in glory and watch your ancestors greet you and honor you for bravery.) Wake up and kiss the family you protected. Suffer from PTSD and always be prepared as you seek more training.....

    Be humble...... As the younger kids hear that you survived such overwhelming odds...
