Individual's Guide for Understanding and Surviving Terrorism

Folks, given current events I think it’s a good idea to revise the U.S. Marine Corps “Individual's Guide for Understanding and Surviving Terrorism” (click for link) The guide is quite good and has several useful tips to be better prepared for terror attacks.
With violent extremism becoming more common each day, its not unreasonable to assume you may find yourself involved in a seemingly random act of violence.
Besides reading the manual linked above, do keep the following in mind:
1)Be ready to defend yourself
A gun, knife, even your bare hands, when you are going to die anyway you are far better off fighting for your life rather than waiting to be executed. Have a gun, GET TRAINING ON HOW TO USE IT and carry it where legal to do so. Mass shooters and terrorists can and have been stopped by armed civilians that happened to be in the right place at the right time.
2)Be ready to patch yourself up.
One of the items I recommend having in your EDC bag is Celox hemostatic gauze.

This can be a true life saver when losing blood due to gun shot wounds, explosion, car crashes or hemorrhaging bleeding in general after accidents. A CAT tourniquet is also a good addition to stop bleeding.

3)Avoid confrontation.
This rarely receives much attention but it may be one of the most important things to keep in mind. Although innocent victims are also the target or terrorists, sometimes individuals are specifically targeted because of their political views or actions. Avoid provocation as much as possible. Avoid confronting people as much as you can. There’s no point in attacking, let alone ridiculing anyone’s religious views.
