“… “During an actual event, the NYPD recommends avoiding the shooter and evacuating immediately,” said Capt. Michael Riggio of the department’s Counterterrorism Bureau …”
Understandable. Nobody really wants to get involved in a violent confrontation, especially if they don’t have all the facts about the situation.
“… Hiding behind a file cabinet is probably the best “Plan B” — and the Police Department proved it by shooting up different kinds of office furniture …”
Your tax dollars at work.
“… “If no other option is available, and you are confronted with the gunman, we recommend trying to confront him with physical force as quickly and as aggressively as possible,” Riggio said. “Consider using pens, staples, chair legs, anything you can get your hands on, as an improvised weapon.” …”
Improvised weapons? If ever in a SHTF scenario which would you rather have immediately available:
- Quality office furniture
- A Swingline Collectors Edition 747 Rio Red Business Stapler
- A firearm
They can’t even bring themselves to mention guns as an option. That’s pathetic.
