If you think that's bad, you need to read on and see what the government is suggesting border agents do to protect themselves and their fellow citizens if a shooter becomes "aggressive".
(but only as a "last resort")
In another nauseating series of "Virtual Learning Center" brainwashing courses that Border Patrol agents are forced to sit behind a computer for hours and endure, we are now taught in an "Active Shooter" course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to "run away" and "hide". If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become "aggressive" and "throw things" at him or her. We are then advised to "call law enforcement" and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered). Shooting incidents cited in the course are Columbine, the Giffords shooting and the Virginia Tech shooting.
Doesn't it feel great to see that the U.S. Government under the current Obama Administration is taking border security and the safety of both their agents and citizens so seriously?
Does this even make sense to you liberals?
The number of dead and injured in all 3 of the above mentioned "run and hide" examples could have been greatly minimized by one thing... a firearm. It's hard for me to rationally believe, "gee... if only there had been more shoes thrown at Columbine H.S., if only there were bigger rocks to be found on the sidewalks in Tucson, if only an entire regiment could hide beind some bushes."
You know what would have put a stop to all of the shooters mentioned above best? Other trained shooters with a half-ounce of common sense, an element that is so rare in Washington DC that nonsense like this is actually studied, applauded and implemented on a national scale.
Seriously... whoever dreamed up this lesson should be given an award for stupidity.
