Alain Burrese is a leading expert on Active Shooter Response. His book, Survive A Shooting, along with his classes focus on teaching people what they can do to survive these terrible events.

Alain appeared in the PBS Documentary "Active Shooter: Are Montana Colleges Ready?" He's also been interviewed on radio stations all over the country on responding to active killers and terrorist threats.

Also, Alain Burrese, like his character Ben Baker, is a former Army sniper, attorney, and father of a beautiful little girl. He lives in Montana with his wife and daughter, whe

Virtues Must Be Practiced

“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”


– Marcus Aurelius


Some may question the value of my quotes about virtues, or the longer posts about them. One could say the same about the numerous books that have been written over the ages on what virtues are, and the ideal of a virtuous person. What’s the point in writing about virtues, especially “warrior virtues” that

Quotes by Alain Burrese  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Changing your mindset, acknowledging that shootings happen, and that one could happen to you, are also important. The loud noise may be a car backfiring or a balloon popping. But what if it is a gunshot? If you assume wrong, you could be dead. If you jumped up and shut your already locked door and prepared to deny access, escape or fight and it turns out that it was a balloon popping, what is the harm? A little embarrassment? You can live with that. The key word being live. If you are in a public place and hear something that might be gunshots, don’t rationalize them away as something else. I’d rather you be embarrassed because you immediately exited the building in the opposite direction from the sounds, than become a victim. Better to be embarrassed than dead.”
Alain Burrese, Survive A Shooting: Strategies to Survive Active Shooters and Terrorist Attacks

“Notably, trained law enforcement professionals when under the stress of a violent encounter often achieve less than a twenty percent hit rate according to the FBI. It is the author’s opinion that such statistics should not be interpreted as criticism of these departments’ professionalism. Rather, these facts underscore the realities of a violent, often surprise encounter. You can therefore extrapolate that if you must run, it is a fair assumption that you may reach safety unscathed.”
Alain Burrese, Survive A Shooting: Strategies to Survive Active Shooters and Terrorist Attacks

“If you aren’t completely appalled, then you haven’t been paying attention.”
Alain Burrese, Survive A Shooting: Strategies to Survive Active Shooters and Terrorist Attacks

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
Lao Tzu
