I would like to give a bit of advice to anyone that might ever be caught in an active shooter situation.
That advice is to TAKE COVER AND HIT THE GROUND!!!
I have been watching the film coverage of the FL airport attack and I am astounded. People in full view of the shooter standing like deer in the headlights, not moving, not taking cover, not hitting the floor flat on their stomachs.
Some crouched, some sit down, some bent over at the waist, some hugged their bags or purses and stood wide eyed, but few were on the ground or seemed to be looking for adequate cover.
People seem to know "Stop Drop and Roll" and most people know "Duck and Cover", but no one seems to know that when you hear gunshots you "Find Cover And Hit The Ground!"
Some seemed to fail to connect the sounds they were hearing with gunfire.
