Good to know the DHS is splintering off into state-themed flavors of crazy. Alabama's chapter has seen a few too many action movies, it seems.

If everyone had guns it would be Run, Find Cover, Fight - see how more guns makes everyone more polite and safe? And it would totally make this video way cooler, you could have like explosions and blood and akimbo Beretta dive-shots buttressed with tragic music for the heroes who sadly died in their noble defense of themselves. In fact, the entire world would be like an action movie ALL THE TIME!
Four people in my shop have ccw permits. They are trained to use those weapons in case something like this happens.
I feel very safe at work should something like that happen. Not that i think it will because the fact that we are openly armed, tends to deter criminals who are looking for unarmed sheep to take advantage of.
One of those guns having a misfire or one of those trained experts accidentally discharging a round into themselves or someone else is about as likely as someone with a gun coming in your shop trying to kill you all, if not more likely. And if those guns are concealed, I don't see how you're openly carrying or deterring anyone. To a killer you look just like those "sheep". It would be far safer to have a security guard who has the only gun, which isn't concealed, so not only are you much more certain of positive control of the firearm you can have your piece of mind as well. But I guess that would be too safe.
I'm with Pete here. I'm curious why you think having a concealed carry permit makes someone worth a damn in a fight of any kind. Are they police or veterans? Do they have any combat marksmanship training of any kind? Unless they do, they're just liabilities.
In any fight with untrained people, no matter how well armed, the aggressor will always win because they're ready. I hope you don't think a shooter is going to announce himself before he starts firing.

I just realized: DHS really spells NRA. Who knew?

Shotgun. A brilliant weapon to have if you plan on killing people in batches of eight from a distance no greater than fifteen feet.
what's a strawman
A strawman is when someone creates a caricature of a position or opinion, pretty much. Anything else, Gmork?
No I'm pretty sure that's a shotgun.

Around the 5 minute mark what is with the Arabic and Chinese words/graffitti on the wall?

If it really comes down to it, try to MacGuyver a weapon out of common office items and use it against the armed madman.
And if you can't run, hide or fight, well, we have nothing else for you.

This is actually excellent advice and is a much better picture of what a normal person should be doing during and active shooter event. Run first, hide second, fight as a last resort only.
Yeah, I don't really get why people are being sarcastic about it. Two evil stars for two hysterical women.
The liberal position by default is run, hide, cower, die.
Fighting is for men, which the left is sorely short of.

"Oh, there once was a turtle by the name of Burt"
"And Burt the turtle was very alert"
"When danger threatened he didn't get hurt"
"Because he knew just what to do"
"Oh, DUCK! and CO-VER!"
"Just DUCK! and CO-VER!"
"Burt did what we all should do."
(I think that's how it went and I'm too damned lazy to look it up)
