    has anyone heard if individial officers do not have to wait for back up to arrive before engaging the active shooter?
    I am curious.

    this definately affects my plan if i am with my family at a store or location where a shooting goes down. i use to believe in 3rd party self defense but inow know that my primary mission is to be my wifes body guard in such a scenario.

    I'm not certain what their policy is, but I would assume the officer can take action without waiting if he feels it is warrented.

    I whole heartedly agree with you about protecting your family first. Like oxygen masks in an airplane, you can't help others until you are safe yourself. I personally wouldn't fault you if you chose not to shoot back; while I would hope that I could help other people, my primary reason for carrying is the defense of my family. To put this another way; the lack of planning on their part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part.

    From some Nampa Cops I had talked to, the valley policy seems to be that as soon as 4 officers of any agency/department are on scene, they enter the building. At least that was mentioned in regards to AS at a school. It might be different at malls, public facilities, etc.

    Hiredgun30, if you can keep those in your responsiblity safe, avoid the AS. At least thats how I understood ID code. Of course your moral compass might dictate you to do a different set of actions...

    have you seen the jeanne assam interviews? she was the church goer who killed
    mathew murray while he was shooting people at her church in colorado?
    she became the (poster child) for oc/cc.
    if you havent seen the videos go on clip syndicate or youtube and type in her name.

    I came up with a code name that either my wife or myself can use to warn eachother of trouble. If I say COWBOY,she knows to grab our son and proceed to a safe spot
    or hit the floor depending on the enviroment.

    if she yells cowboy, I am reaching under my windbreaker and scanning.
