Well said, AZhawk
This is a discussion on Wife's college prepared what to do in case of shooting video. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by twocan Hawk: That was really good for an 8 year old.

What I learned from that (many years later after reading, "On Killing" for the first time) was that it only takes one person to lead many. After a traumatic event, most people (sheep) can't process what has happened because they believe that whatever happened, could not have happened to them. I think it was just childhood innocence that caused me to run. I heard a loud noise, silence, then people screaming, at which point my instincts told me to protect my family...
Anyways, I wrote that just to get that point across: It only takes one to step up and lead the many. I probably could have wrote just that, but why believe something without evidence? I sure don't!
If this helps only one person, I'll be happy since it's only the second time I've ever brought it up.

1. I wonder if I could make a preloaded and charged potato pistol.
2. Sometimes I wonder why school doors don't come with a more rigorous locking system. Then again any door that locks can be used by the shooter to seal himself in. Locks only benefit who ever is behind them.

Personally; I would throw the book and/or books and/or desks and chairs at the shooter in hopes of the surprize attack taking him/her off guard, allowing excape or disarming. The last thing to be thrown as I am running at the shooter is my book bag with the last book. The last school I attended I carried a rather large brief case so heaving it would hurt if I hit you with it. Still today, I would rather have a 9 mm lead and brass rock; thrown from a 9mm rock launcher (if you get my drift).
Sounds like a crappy video. Sorry to hear your wife's employer is such a bunch of tools.
This is where you and/or your wife need to get creative if you're going to continue to attend AND follow the stated rules. Things like the hottest pepper spray + this come in handy:
When you're corned with nowhere to hide/run you can pepperspray them to hopefully blind them long enough to wack them upside the head a few times...
Not exactly pretty, but it'll do the job...lots of sharp metal things flying at a high rate of speed tend to inflict damage... That's approx 12' of paracord btw...so it has other uses.
