My answer to Why didn't armed citizens respond to the Pulse nightclub massacre?
Answer by Abbey Laurel-Smith:
Armed citizen(s) with assault rifles, in that kind of environment will certainly get shot by the police.
The only way to get armed citizen organized is to:
- get armed citizens organized, zoned, quartered, and paired.
- get every armed citizen registered.
- get them to declare their type of arsenal.
- get them some kind of standard para military training.
- get them radios and establish some kind of comms. standard.
- organize them into rapid reaction groups of twos and fours.
- let the police know where their location in a FUBAR scene like this.
