Shopping malls, concert halls, bike paths, night clubs, places of work and places of worship – innocent people senselessly attacked while going about their daily lives. The world can be a very dangerous place if we are not educated and if we are not prepared. By providing important information and valuable guidance, we hope to equip our citizens with the tools they need to protect themselves and to help them protect their families.
