Full Headline: 'Run, hide, fight': Homeland Security releases public service video on how to get to safety and survive a mass shooting
Following last Friday's mass casualty shooting in Aurora, Colorado, the City of Houston has released an instructional video on what to do in case of a similar emergency.
Funded by the Department of Homeland Security, the city hopes that the video can help people prepare people for the worst.
Entitled Run.Hide.Fight. Surviving an Active Shooter Event, it depicts a fictional shooting incident in a crowded office building.
In the six-minute video, a narrator warns that all shooter events are unpredictable, but there are three things that one can do to increase one's chance of survival: run, hide or fight.
'It may feel like just another day at the office,' the narrator says in the beginning of the footage. 'But occasionally,' the narrator says. 'Life feels more like an action movie than reality.'

This time the government really spent money wisely ... cause Democrap voters really are sooo stooopid that they wouldn't know what to do in an emergency unless we told them ... and then every one of them would automatically remember this video!
One wonders if ANYWHERE in that video is the perfectly simple message: Excercise your Second Amendment rights, acquire a firearm and learn how to use it well, then keep it with you always - it may save your life.
Naaaah. That would make too much sense.
Why, when a double-tap would be so much easier?

Let me know when get to the part where an individual with carrying a concealed firearm pulls his weapon and puts a stop the violence.
RUN to cover or concealment if possible.
HIDE as much of your body as possible behind that cover or concealment.
FIGHT with your sidearm from cover or concealment.
But, of course, the government *can’t* tell you to do that because, well, you’d have to have one of them eeeeeeeeevil guns, right?
(The sarcasm light should be lit and glowing like a welding arc at this point.)
exactly, after thirty seconds someone in the office pulls out a gun and shoots the gunman.
This would be resolved if every state permits CCW.
I have an idea. How about, “Front sight, Front sight...”
What kind of government gives advice that is more aimed at maintaining the vulnerable cultural status quo, than preserving the lives of its citizens?
They used more words than necessary to describe their plan. Please allow me to sum up for them:
Here’s a better plan:
Everybody rush the shooter simultaneously.
Run...get shot in the back.
Hide...get shot in the closet.
Fight...get shot in the face.
Tell them to look up the lecture from Col. Jeff Cooper at Youtube and reach their own conclusions.
Has there been a video from DHS on how to survive a thunderstorm? (I didn't think so.) Chances are, the information would be more useful.
Another Hollywood fiction movie. How many of the producers have actually been under attack by a crazed shooter.
Ask any veteran who has faced an enemy shooting at him what he would do.
This Ain’t Hollywood people.
Suggested liberal movies:
* Five politically correct meals you can order at Chic-Fil-A
* Why it’s not polite to scream at a Minnesota funeral.
* What happens when hippies start a commune.
* Why that guy on your Che T-shirt is dead.
* Where Ted Kennedy is hanging out these days.
I posted in several of the Aurora threads that Napilatino would recommend the same tactic/instruction she gave Border Agents: run and hide.
This morning on F&F, they had Border Agents who are saying the Agency is in such disarray that illegals can basically claim anything and get free passage. Agency managers and supervisors have too many conflicting rules and regulations, and they don’t know which is to be followed.

A reality check, in Houston I roll this way...
Draw, Aim, go to slide-lock...Then reload...
DHS, is an authority/partner in disarmanent...
WWJD? (What would Julia do?)
How soon before ,DHS: Secretary Napolitano Announces , we shall have these videos on how to survive mass shooting posted at every walmart, much like if you see something,say something ?
First make sure you replace all of your clips with magazines.

I’ve seen most of Ed Wood’s movies, they are better than this one (yes, even Plan 9).
Now, see, this is the step where you sympathize with the maniac, give him a warm fuzzy hug and reason with him that Betty Lou needs to be taken out instead than you.
Thanks for the ping.
At exactly 1:00 min. into the video, you can see the standard liberal notice that no guns or concealed weapons are allowed in that building. Nothing like a gun-free zone to attract crazed shooters and criminals, LOL.
BTW, I really like your response to a mass shooter. I’m still working on mine:
3. Scream in agony
4. Limp away as fast as I can
All this in a moment.
Kudos for Jean Assam for staying focused.
Brave Sir Robin ran away.
Bravely ran away away.
When danger reared it's ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
With a chair or coffee pot? BRILLIANT!
The map shows Texas leading the nation in lightning fatalities. This is obviously because of Texas's lax lightning control laws.
By the way, who were those military guys that showed up with the police? I like how their cammies blended in with their surroundings.
While we're at it, here's some more good advice from government safety experts ...
Government has sure come a long way.
You caught that too!!! Yeah, that stupid azz sign will get a lot of people killed one day here in Texas...
Yep, that “Ready, Fire, Aim” has the potential to be slightly painful...;-)
We obviously need more regulations for trees, metal buildings, and fishing during a rain storm.
Then, when LE shows up 30 minutes later, they mow down all the armed good guys standing over the decedent perp?
They'll come in all tactical, looking for someone to shoot.
1. Swiftly Shoot perp in the center of face with ccw
2. shoot perp 2x in center of body mass
3. Run to your location where you keep bigger weapon and ammo and rearm
4. Phone 911 with confirmation you are afraid for your life, he made you shoot, perp is hit
5. Call lawyer while being on guard for accomplices.
6. Speak to no one until your lawyer arrives.
with a back up from a can of hair spray /DW40 and a lighter.
. ...then beat the crap out of him with the empty fire extingusher....
