“Chris Bird has artfully challenged citizens to prepare themselves to survive a mass killer incident. It’s a challenge that may save your life! Citizen’s have a right to not become a victim or crime statistic.”

Sheriff John Whetsel
Oklahoma County, OK, Past President International Assoc. of Chiefs of Police

“For over twenty years, the unthinkable has occurred over and over: the killings of innocent victims simply to achieve a high body count. This book is a MUST READ if you are interested in a factual well-documented understanding of mass shootings.”

Dr. Richard Caster
former Executive Director National
Association of School Resource Officers

“This is a very important work. It is extremely well researched and will prove invaluable to those charged with determining how to deal with the active–killer issue in their school or place of business.”
