When the Sandy Hook shooting happened in 2012, it was the deadliest in U.S. history with 27 casualties. A few years later, the Orlando nightclub shooting became the deadliest in U.S. history with 49 casualties. And now the Las Vegas shooting is the deadliest in U.S. history with 59 casualties. That means the record for deadliest shooting in U.S. history has been broken 3 times in just 5 years.
I don’t know why, but it seems like more and more people are going crazy lately, and I fear the record will be broken again before the decade is over. Now more than ever we should be thinking about first aid skills and supplies before another shooting happens.
In this video, SkinnyMedic describes his “active shooter medical kit.” If you have first aid training, this would be the perfect bag to have with you at a crowded public event, but it would be good in any SHTF scenario where you might encounter dangerous people with firearms.
Here’s what’s in it:
- Head Lamp
- Mini Flashlights
- Glow Sticks
- Tourniquets (multiple types)
- Combat Gauze
- NAR QuikLitter
- Mylar Blankets
- AR500 Body Armor
- Trauma Kit Bundles (Chest Seals, Pressure Bandage, Tourniquet, Gauze)
Watch the video below to hear him explain why he chose these particular items.
