Your handgun wouldn’t have made a difference

But some medical equipment and training may have. Like the professor, I keep a trauma kit in my vehicle. And a tourniquet. And water. And some food. And a first aid kit.

You should too.

    Be sure to get some training. Basic first aid and CPR takes under a day, it’s not hard and very satisfying. Get the periodic refresher, too. My employer paid for it, making me part of the “emergency response team” but I would want it if I had to pay for it just the same.
    I carry a CPR kit (mask and gloves) though no first aid kit, that’s something to work on.

    Training first.

    But, after that, having the equipment on your person is a lot more useful than in your car.

    I carry a first aid kit in my motorcycle, but not my truck. That will likely change after the Las Vegas massacre. Sad that we have arrived in this place. Avoid crowds.

    At the Last Gunblogger Rendezvous we had a class in Gunshot Injury conducted by a Reno Paramedic/EMT/Motor Occifer/Flight Medic guy and it was very instructive, so now I have a blow-out kit for that stuff – nitrile gloves on TOP so you put them on first.

    A handgun might have made a difference – but only in the hands of a guy on the 32nd floor of the hotel with the guts to run to the sound of the guns! As a CCW civilian, that’s probably not me, but why was he able to keep shooting for 10 minutes? Couldn’t a cop look up, race into the hotel lobby (or radio someone on the other side of the building so as to stay out of line of sight)?

    Maybe that’s exactly what happened, and he offed himself when they got to the door. I don’t know, I wasn’t there. It just seems like it took a long time.
