SELF-PROTECTION – LE – Training For CCW Immediate Responders.  

How are the responding law enforcement professionals supposed to know who is a good guy and who is a bad guy? While there are a plethora of commercial identification solutions on the market ranging from badges to reflective sashes, reality is that none of them are that great in the heat of the moment.

In the majority of states in our country, there are a plethora of legally licensed concealed carry permit holders. If they respond to an active shooter / active killer event, how do law enforcement officers identify them? Across our nation today there are at least 38 states wherein the laws do not restrict the citizens from carrying a firearm – either open or concealed – on their person day in and day out as they go about their business. That number of states is probably even higher than 38 but there are a few states left that are still “May Issue” instead of “Shall Issue” and there are some states where there is no permitting process at all. Those Constitutional Carry states recognize their citizens’ right to be armed without restraint or restriction. This reality means that, in the event of an active shooter / active attacker, there are potentially plenty of armed citizens in the vicinity or on the scene who can or might engage the attacker(s). This presents a challenge as discussed in other articles: it means more people not in uniform with guns presented and possibly being fired. How are the responding law enforcement professionals supposed to know who is a good guy and who is a bad guy?
