    Bay Area Law Enforcement Encourages Fighting Back Against Active Shooters « CBS San Francisco

    This will never work. And even more, it will work less in California.

    PS The news anchor at the end...what a sheeple.

    The intent of the training is good, this is just a poorly writen article with a misleading title.
    The problem with gun control is that drugs are already illegal.

    Perhaps it should be in the off topic and humor forum then.

    If I'm in a gun-free zone and there's a shooter and I have no escape...I'm fighting back. Even if all I have is a q-tip!

    A couple of notes; it's nice to see the police recommend that people take responsibility for their safety, surprising to hear it coming out of Kalifornia, I would do that regardless of what anyone else thought anyway

    I read the article and watched the video, what is new with the three words they use. 1. Run away if possible, 2. Hide, barricade yourself in a room, 3. Fight if 1 & 2 fail. My god that's just common sense. I wonder how much that study cost.

    Would still depend on the employer or campus even in shall-issue jurisdictions, though there are counties in California that issue carry permits that are valid state-wide.
    The news anchor at the end seems to be intestinal-fortitudally challenged.

    #4 Good: Houston releases video on how to react to active shooter.
