A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Program
Assess, Leave, Impede, Violence and Expose
My good friend and colleague, Michael Julian, has develop this A.L.I.V.E. program to teach the mindset of the active killer (not all are shooters) and how to survive - the first 10 minutes of survival increase your chances exponentially! In addition, Mike has just released a book - a tool as valuable for self-preservation as your firearm is for self-defense. But first, is his program effective?
Liz Moreno was with her boyfriend in Las Vegas when she heard what they thought was fireworks. She turned around and I saw a lady was shot in the face - and told boyfriend to run and get out. She credits the active shooter survival training class she attended a couple of years ago - what she learned just came back to her. The class was the A.L.I.V.E. Active Shooter Survival Program taught by Mike where she worked. She knew, as Mike emphasized, one of the worst things you can do in an active-shooter situation is freeze.
I recently interviewed Mike for my Facts & Forensics podcast - he went into more depth with this incredible story, and how her telling him he saved her life put him on a new passion and mission.
Look for it to be up the first week of February at www.GIMG.tv!

News from the NRA and NRA-ILA
Every member of the NRA knows our passion, and our NRA membership and support, is more than legislation and our 2nd Amendment – the NRA is about freedoms, civil rights, firearms, civilian and law enforcement / military firearms and non-firearms self-defense, history, conservation and much more. The NRA has over 40 committees for their advocacy of these areas. Legislation is the most important to advocate and defend our Constitution – not just our 2nd Amendment, but from our 1st (speech, assembly and redress of grievances) to our 10th Amendment (states’ rights). I firmly believe, if you believe in our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the civil rights of others - you believe in the mission of the NRA. Some say it should be the National Rights Association.
