Tips: Former Navy SEAL Tells You How to Protect Yourself in a Situation Like the Colorado Shooting
Brandon Webb, a former Navy SEAL, joined America Live to give his tips for how you can protect yourself should you find yourself in a situation similar to the Colorado shooting.
Webb’s tips include carrying a tactical flashlight, which can blind someone for three to four seconds in the daylight. “What this does is buys you time and really creates space to really have a plan and get out of there,” Webb said.

He also pointed out that we should all become more aware of situations around us, noting that he sees people staring down at their cell phones all of the time while walking on the street. “In these active shooter situations, if you look historically, most of these shooters, they are not well-experienced marksmen. So for one, hitting a moving target is very hard […] I think people don’t realize you can get up and run and take action. Get up and out of that movie theater.”
“You have to think self-rescue in these situations. Closing your eyes and hoping that it’s going to go away is just not the case,” Webb said.
