Thank you, but I wasn't brave. There's a tall picket fence and some trees obscuring the view of my apartment from the school. I can only see the school parking lot because I'm on the second story. The only reason someone would be able to see me from there would be if they were looking for me. I would have been quite safe, even if there had been any real danger. If there really was some lunatic shooting up the school, at the very least I would have called the cops. I'd like to think I would also grab my gun, head over there, and try to shoot the mother fucker myself, but you never really know what you'll do in a situation like that until it happens.

I hear gunshots outside a couple times a month and I always go outside to see what's going on. Then if I see their vehicle I call the police. And the last time that happened they finally nabbed the damned bastard that has been driving around firing his friggin rifle out his truck window at deer around my damned house! I come from a family of hunters but THAT nonsense isn't tolerated. I guess if I lived in an area where gunshots aren't normal due to being in an area where there aren't game animals, I would be more cautious about gunshots and probably carry a sidearm with me before just barging out the front door. But yea, I would still investigate especially if I heard kids yelling!

Probably not the best idea to bring a gun to a school in that type of situation, even if someone else is shooting up the school. If and when the cops show up, you're a target as well.

I would say be a vigilante but yeah I would just call the police because there are only two outcomes if you enter the scene with a gun. 1: shooter kills you. 2: you kill shooter, and cops kill you.

That was quite an explosive post.

Once I heard people screaming and running in high school. Thinking there was a shooting, I hid behind the garbage disposal. It turned out to be a senior prank. They were throwing water balloons at people.

I'm pretty sure you would have heard it clearly if it WAS a shooting....

There were people screaming. I could have either stood around to find out or hid. And what if there was a silencer? I am not waiting around to find out why they are screaming.

actually good point, I forgot about silencers haha. I grew up in the "hood" so you swear all the gangsters and criminals would worry about silencers.

When I was in high school some kids lit fire crackers under the coke machines outside during break {and because there was a threat earlier that year} everyone thought people were shooting and started running. I get how scary that feeling is. I was terrified. When something like that happens you don't think about all the things it could be, you're instincts are to save yourself!
