For many, the presence of a gun is unnerving, not to mention the gun actually being fired.
There are others who become very uncomfortable even being around gun paraphernalia.
ACTIVE SHOOTER situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly.
law enforcement is required to stop the shooter and any further harm to victims.
Typically once the shooter has spotted law enforcement the shooter in most cases will take his/her own life once they realize there is no way out of the immediate situation.
