The two most simple answers are

-You avoid events potential targets of opportunity

-You don't get away.

There's another answer that takes proficiency and isnt a feel good answer at all.

Every day we accept great risks, it's inherent in a free society that outliers will use that freedom against their fellow citizens. Sometimes terrible things happen and there's not a whole lot of great ways to avoid it. Minimize your risks where you can, and don't let these animals take away our freedom.

In todays world, it is a sad truth that when you go to these types of events you must have a least a rudimentary plan in place for this type of event; 99.9% probably don't. Then I'd say luck plays a huge roll as well. You actions will have a lot to do with who you are with. If I was with my son??? GTFO asap... with friends?? .....Movement to contact and hopefully I don't get shot by incoming LEOs.

My heart hurts. May the fallen Rest In Peace. Speedy recovery to the wounded.

And Steve Paddock- may you rot and suffer in the deepest darkest part of hell.

The worst mass shooting in US history. FOX is reporting 8 firearms in the room and video equipment. I guess the asshole wanted himself to go down in history. (In a bad way)

The wife thinks I'm paranoid when I go into a store that is unknown to me because I look for other entrances, exits, restroom areas and employees areas only. I guess I'm not paranoid afterall.

Best wishes for their recovery if they were wounded. Sorry to hear that it hit so close to you.

Now reports indicate 10 rifles found inside room. Shooter evidently killed himself as police breeched the room; the shooter had video equipment set up to monitor LE approach.

Numbers at 400+ transported, no new total on deaths.

Condolences to family and friends. From other forums, it looks like LVMPD (and particularly their Dispatch) had their shit wired tight and handled this very well.

My coworker was there for the concert. I don't know if he came back last night before, or stayed another day. He's not answering calls.

"He just snapped" -- Shooter's brother

Uh no. Not with the amount of planning he put into this. Video/Surv equipment set up to monitor LE approach, etc.

What a sick, twisted fuck. I wish he could be brought back to life so he could be fed feet first into a wood chipper.

Agreed. Also sounds like he may have been utilizing a drum mag...
