active shooter

Train like you fight:

0:06 – Oh lawd… we’re off to a good start *cringe*…. holding her wrist with her support hand.  I’m sure that’s better than nothing, but why not have her do it the correct way?

Maybe I’m a dramatic sensitive snowflake, but if I was little in grade school and someone would have told me “Hey Mikey, you know those violent movies your parents won’t let you watch but you see trailers and previews for all the time?  Yea, well that’s basically real life.  You should be prepared for a madman or even one of your little friends to come in here and MURDER YOU.”  I literally would have never went to school again.

1:57 – Holy shit this is going to be traumatizing… guy walking up with a blue rifle for simulation sake.

2:54 – Whoa this pastor actually told 5 year olds that they are actually “getting ready to die if they aren’t paying attention”.

9:10 – Yoooooo only Thomas Morton would rock the oldschool thick leather belt with the white gripped 6 shooter.

10:00 – Pastor talkin about doing Mozambiques “two to the body one to the head”.  Classic.

10:30 – This former police chief makes a good point.  Stats show that police only have less than 1/3 of the shots they fire hit the intended target in high stress situations.  Teachers could do as good or better?  What happens if they miss their intended target?

I don’t know.. again I don’t have any answers.  I suppose it’s better for kids to be prepared (if you can actually even handle real stress like that and make logical spit second decisions at that age) than be clueless… but man I bet that scares the shit out of a lot of them, despite the fact the delivery of the information from the principal is very calm.

If they are going to all this trouble, they should probably at some point use blank rounds or something similar to show the kids how loud a gun sounds when fired in an enclosed space.

Thoughts?

This is some training at Ft. Bragg apparently:

Active shooter "training" at Ft. Bragg. ??? Ok… ? Gat tip: @jose_vx @brandon_herrington via @dwoody14

Yikes.  I didn’t see VODA there giving instruction… they should have got him to sort this out.

Oh wow:

This shirt is $70, and you should definitely buy it if you like the idea.

You might recognize Aaron Cohen from a post I did yesterday on his TIER 1 Israeli training (which is evidently far too advanced for most of us to understand).  Aaron is so TIER AF, he actually posted this in the comments on one of yesterday’s videos:

In order to comment, you will need to state your name and professional background(Branch, unit/mos/operational experience) or your comment will be deleted. This is a tactigoober-free zone. We’re not interested in hearing your thoughts on on immediate entries, diamond formations, carbine and whatever else you think you’re a master in…we’ve all learned what’s out there and don’t care. We’re here to advance the tactical evolution and advocate a safer and more lethal way of killing terrorists…not bicker with close minded followers who don’t question tactics and only preach what they were taught.

You read it… That’s correct; Aaron doesn’t have time for your bullshit unless you’re an operator.   Oh and check this video out from SHOT show:

Rick-RossIf the first video wasn’t funny enough, here he is in full “costume” (this is an act / character isn’t it?  I sure hope so) getting Larry Vuitton’s opinion.  I laughed when I saw him rip down the pocket to demonstrate the showing of the POLICE patch… but I absolutely lost my shit when Larry was like “CCW (holds up patch), I don’t see any downside to it”.  HAHAHAH too good.  I love how the video is also titled “See what Larry Vickers top-pick product was of shot show 2016″… yeeeaaaaaaaah… not misleading and false at all.

Thoughts?  Would operate in this shirt?  Would rock it with your concealed carry pants and concealed carry neck ID?  Oh and naturally with another gun in your ABDO Holster?

Gat tip: Jacob, no uno

I swear everything nowadays needs a damn app.  Whoever came up with this in today’s gun fearing climate is a genius… I need to think of something which organizations will panic buy.  I have no idea what the cost per school this system is, but I think it’s safe to say it’s expensive (even though they say “low-cost”).  And yes you can put a price on something like this because like it says in the promotional video below “since 1990 over 200 people have died in schools because of active shooters”. So yea it’s not that big of a problem… yes it’s a disgusting problem to have, but not that big. If they would have spent their time and effort developing a “Teenage Smoking Detection System” which slapped the shit out of any kid to tried to light one up, that would literally save MILLIONS of lives, not just a handful per year.

About the Guardian Active Shooter Detection System:

You can check out more info on the shooter detection systems website if you care.

Guardian-Shooter-Detection-SystemUnless the school has on site law enforcement this isn’t as useful… but I suppose the police will know exactly where to go when they show up (if the shooter has fired a shot at his new present location).   And that there is the problem… this type of thing will be leaned on too heavily and end up getting some officers killed.  Just because shots were fired 20 seconds ago in room A on the West side of a building, it doesn’t mean the shooter isn’t on the East side of the building now ready to ambush the entry team.  Also this gets even more confusing and potentially useless if/when there are multiple shooters, timed explosive devices, etc…

Thoughts? Anyone want to bankroll the “Teenage Smoking Detection System” I want to invent? At least help share the cost on the auto-baby-powder on the hand sprinkling add-on? Maybe I should Kickstarter this… :P

You on the other hand can roll the dice and hopefully not die:

Kids-Scissors1:53 – Overpower the shooter with some scissors or other weak shit because you’re a dumbass without a gun.

I’m not sure why they decided to re-cut Run Hide Derp, a video they funded last year.  Anyone have any idea?

Thoughts?  Are you growing more comfortable with gun free zones? (ha!)

Good Guy Yeager continues:

I don’t carry a gun for self defense.  I don’t carry a gun for protection.  I carry a gun so I can shoot people in their fucking face that are hurting other people.

hahah well said.

He advocates “being the hero” in this video, which I think is good in theory if everything goes right.  Things could go so wrong though.  I’d argue that in addition to “Alive Hero” or “Dead Hero” a third possibility should be “Alive And Being Charged With Murder, Negligence etc. For Your Shot Not Going Where You Hoped It Would”.  In reality not everyone that carries a gun can shoot as well as Yeager.  How much would it suck if there was an active shooter scenario that you probably could have escaped from, but instead you got shot by a person that wanted to be a hero, and now your either dead, in a wheel chair, have a colostomy bag etc.. etc…? That definitely could happen if everyone that has a gun is all of the sudden full of confidence that they can be the hero of the day. Reminds of an Edmund Burke quote – “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” All I’m saying is that being the hero could be a slippery slope if you get in over your head. If you’re a tier1 HSLD operator and you can Mozambique mofos in your sleep then by all means take care of business.

Thoughts?
