The chances of the this helping in an active shooter situation are slim. There is no need to promote the use of firearms.

The chances of well trained Jews being harmed by their own firearms is even slimmer

Sadly the bad guys are utzu eitza (vesufar!) and there’s no reason not to take appropriate precautions, and we also wish to be prepared for untoward developments going forward r’l.

Reckless?

Reckless?

If someone can shoot the shooter why is that reckless? Is it better to hide under chairs and wait to be shot?

What is your opinion based on? Why do you think it is impossible for ordinary people to receive advanced training in the use of firearms and defensive mindset and tactics? Do you have any facts to back up your opinion, or are you just speaking out of irrational fear and ignorance? I suspect the latter.

How advanced?

How advanced is this training really? How does it compare to law enforcement or military training?

It doesn't have to be "advanced".

It doesn't have to be "advanced".

The average person does not need to know how to live in the jungle without food rations while camouflaged and shooting passing enemy troops.
They don’t need to know how to find the range and wind speed to shoot a shell over half a mile to hit a target.
All they need to know is how to safely store a gun and take it out and fire at a threat from usually no more then 20 feet or fewer.
That is basic firearms training, not “advanced”.

Then explain the recent shooting at a church in Texas. Which was stopped by a good man with a gun, many lives were saved there that day.
The same is true at the tragic Poway Chabad house shooting in where there were good people with guns which saved many Yidden from a massacre.
what you are saying is delusional and defies logic, unfortunately, there are many people like you out there and which cringe at the sight of a firearm even if it’s there to protect your life.

The good man with a gun..

In both incidents you mention, they were highly trained FBI or DHS agents.

not the one in Texas. Anyway, this is what the organization is trying to accomplish by training them
