'Run, hide, fight': Homeland Security releases public service video on how to survive mass shooting
(UK) Daily Mail ^ | July 27, 2012 | Emily Anne Epstein

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.

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?

They used more words than necessary to describe their plan. Please allow me to sum up for them:

PANIC.

"To date, there have been 17 lightning fatalities in 2012 in 13 states" compared to 12 fatalities from decompensated schizophrenics who thought they were "The Joker".

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.

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.

No surprise.

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.

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:

1. Fire
2. Draw/Aim
3. Scream in agony
4. Limp away as fast as I can

Not a PING...

Brave Sir Robin ran away.
("No!")
Bravely ran away away.
("I didn't!")
When danger reared it's ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
("I never!")
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.

The map shows Texas leading the nation in lightning fatalities. This is obviously because of Texas's lax lightning control laws.

But, but, I don't understand. Didn't the "active shooter" see there was a sign? I mean that should've stopped him from entering with his gun. If that didn't work, why didn't the rent-a-cop stop him with his flashlight and rape whistle?

By the way, who were those military guys that showed up with the police? I like how their cammies blended in with their surroundings.

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.

Response:
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.
