A STUDY OF THE PRE-ATTACK BEHAVIORS OF ACTIVE SHOOTERS IN THE UNITED STATES
In 2017 there were 30 separate active shootings in the United States, the largest number ever recorded by the FBI during a one-year period.1 With so many attacks occurring, it can become easy to believe that nothing can stop an active shooter determined to commit violence. “The offender just snapped” and “There’s no way that anyone could have seen this coming” are common reactions that can fuel a collective sense of a “new normal,” one punctuated by a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. Faced with so many tragedies, society routinely wrestles with a fundamental question: can anything be done to prevent attacks on our loved ones, our children, our schools, our churches, concerts, and communities?

A Message from NASB’s President
This last year as your president has been an amazing journey for me. I have learned so much about education around our State, the region, and the nation.
I would like to thank Carolyn Edwards (CCSD) for her nine years on the Executive Committee, her service on the Education Commission of the States, and her years on the Nevada Interscholastic Athletic Association (NIAA) Board of Control. Thanks to Lori Hunt (WPSD) for her service on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

Thanks also go out to John Mayer (WCSD) for his service to the Board of Directors and the NIAA Board of Control throughout his tenure. Thank you to Veronica Frankel (WCSD) for her service on the Teachers and Leaders Council. We appreciate all the time and commitment by these individuals on behalf of NASB and school trustees in all seventeen school...
