'No One is Taking Any Chances': Muslims in US Turn to Active Shooter Drills For Ramadan

'No One is Taking Any Chances': Muslims in US Turn to Active Shooter Drills For Ramadan

Eoin Higgins, staff writer

The Muslim month-long holiday Ramadan is traditionally a time for reflection and celebration—and, in 2019, a time to take measures against active shooters.

That's the new reality in the U.S. for the American Muslim community, which has seen a spike in hate speech, threats, and attacks over the last three years.

To deal with the increase in threats and attacks, Muslims across the U.S. are turning to active shooter training to deal with the danger.

Perhaps we need to set quotas for running for political office. Since almost no women are mass murderers, every time there is one of these mass killings, another spot in congress most go to a woman. Which state is next can go by lottery until 50 are seated. Just a thought.
