According to the PropertyCasualty360.com’s article “Staying Safe: Mitigating active shooter risks”, the number of incidents involving active shooters has steadily increased over the last 15 years. In 2000, there was one active shooter incident versus 20 in 2015. The most recent massacre occurred this past year in Las Vegas, NV.
