Perceiving the Signal Through the Noise: Evidence-Based Active Shooter Defense PracticesThere are a myriad of devices and recommendations which are proposed to schools in the wake of mass-casualty active shooter attacks. However, such things as bullet-proof safe-rooms, balistic-proof backpacks, and common standard methodologies are not feasible, effective, or realistic. The best defense relies upon "human software:" training, mindset, and effective protocols for use during an attack.
