Thinking on what to do if a shooter shows up at a school has changed over time, for a number of reasons. Originally the main thought was to “run or hide” but that thinking has changed. While running or hiding from a crazed gunman is not necessarily a bad idea it needs to be modified both to increase the chance of escape or evasion but to impact the brains of the people running and hiding later. People who act, rather than simply react tend to recover mentally and emotionally quicker than people who simply cave in to the situation.
