How would you, as a concealed carrier, avoid confusion with other carriers during an active shooting? What would you say to let others know that you are not another shooter but a civilian trying to protect yourself and others? How would you avoid being shot by a confused, carrying bystander who sees you brandishing your weapon/shooting at an active shooter? I wonder this because I do believe that if more people carried on them, they would be safer in situations such as this. (It beats the alternative of hiding and hoping you don’t get shot.) That is my only qualm with the whole thing. If I’m out with my wife at the mall, and in the shop we’re in someone begins shooting at people, and I deem it necessary to put them down to protect myself, my wife, and others, how do I avoid being shot at by someone else who is ALSO carrying, simply trying to protect themselves and others? Should I announce my intentions to those in the general vicinity? I suppose an off-duty cop would have this same problem.
