I've been thinking about this for a while now....and it's been rekindled by the recent events. Think a multiple shooter scenario in a large mall or similar complex. Mumbai or Kenya mall style attack, multiple shooters, may be multiple locations but that's not really relevant to my question. Assume that you are carrying your CCW gun and you are with your spouse/partner/kids. The mayhem starts.... For one thing I don't like the lock down scenario, I am going to try and make a run for it. I am not equipped for an extended firefight with multiple shooters armed with assault weapons and I doubt any of you are. Now, without going all mall ninja, how many of you would consider or are already carrying an assault style weapon in the trunk? How many of you would fight your way out to only go back in again once armed with whatever you had stashed in the trunk? In the Kenya mall shooting several armed civilians went in before the police, they were armed with handguns. So you've made it out with your spouse/partner/kids, will you arm up and go back in? I'm assuming LEO is on scene but they haven't set up a command post or a perimeter yet. The reason that I'm asking is I'm not sure what I would do.... What if you got separated and you made it out but your spouse didn't. Would you leave it all to Law Enforcement?
