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.
