Today on America Live with Megyn Kelly former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb shared his expertise and advice with viewers. Based on his experience as a SEAL and sniper Webb offers the following simple suggestions for the average citizen to help protect himself from becoming a victim:
Carry a high power pocket flashlight. Non lethal but causes temporary blindness when flashed in the eyes even during daylight. Buys a person 3-4 critical seconds to get away.
Moving targets are harder to hit. Know where the exits are. Know the difference between concealment and hiding.
Be aware of your surroundings. Walking with head down, texting does not allow you to see and hear people around you.
Have a plan.Think about what you would do ahead of time.
Following the horrific tragedy last week, Webb wrote a blog called ” Navy SEAL Lessons Learned from Aurora Colorado” which can be read at his website: SOFREP.
