    What next? Ordered to turn in their guns? Makes sense, if you can't use 'em you don't need 'em.

    I can see it coming. All Federal LE personnel will be required to turn in their current weapons and be issued the new low capacity nerf guns. However they will be required to carry their 1 issued nerf bullet in their shirt pocket.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Gntlemen: Unfortunately the order has been taken out of context. While all DHS pesonal have to take the course, it is primarily intended for the unarmed DHS office worker.

    the standing order for the enforcement agents are

    !. In defense of your or a fellow agents life
    2. In defense of an innocent third person
    3 You cannot take sides in a gang shootout, -- just wait and scrag the survivors hehhehehhe

    Right when we thought we had heard it all..... this sounds like a Valarie Jarrett thing......................

    Easy advice to give, if you aren't the one being shot at or seeing others shot while you have the means to stop them.....

    besides being totally idiotic.

    Also in the orders were suggestions to jump on a chair and cling to your apron if you see a mouse run through the kitchen.

    As far as the out of context media reporting....There is no room for context in the soundbite news media. Let's not let facts and perspective get in the way of the sensationalism. Facts and perspectives do not sell.
    It's kind of like how some people have a sudden and insatiable desire to talk about vampires after the Twilight series became popular, except zombies are much less gay and more likely to exist one day

    Hey, Don Jose, good to see you here. Folks, as my amigo says, this has been taken out of context. It is non-mandatory for non-LEO's. That said, Border Patrol Agents will never 'hide'. Most face more life-threatening encounters in a year than many civilian cops do in an entire career.

    Welcome to Tayopo and Retbordercop-- Too many here believe almost anything they read,
    whether it makes sense or not. Thanks for putting some perspective on this for the others.
