In most cases, active shooters use firearms(s) and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims. Increasingly, religious fanatics and political extremists, as well as people with extensive psychiatric issues and chemical dependencies, are seeking to make dramatic political, religious or social statements. These individuals recognize the immediacy and totality of the media coverage which will follow their actions, and most do not expect to survive the duration of the event. Over the past twenty-five years, Department of Justice (DOJ) along with the National Institute for Justice (NIJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) statistics show that the average duration of an active shooter/active killer event is a mere six minutes, with the greatest loss of life occurring during the first NINETY SECONDS from the time the first shot is fired. In an active shooter/active killer situation, the responsible and law-abiding citizen armed citizen IS the first responder.
