Such trainings are not worth doing and needlessly add to aniety about
Brilliant...........See those Jews are smart, too!As
opposed to those who engaged gun free zones and end up victims!Now
this is fighting back!
There is nothing the matter with being prepared. Isn't that the boy scouts
motto. I will say that the chance of that happening in Utah is just a few
hundredths of a percentage above zero. I have lived here most of my life and I
am confident in saying that the people of Utah are about as tolerant of other
people of different beliefs and cultures as you can be.
A church or synagogue with a lot of people blasting away could end bad for the
bad guy...and other people as well. It might work in the movies but could be
very messy in a real life situation."Run, hide, fight" is a
good response when combined with trained security, and security measures such as
When the shooting in Pittsburgh happened there were four armed, trained
policemen there who were killed.
"Run, Hide, Fight"... is absurd! They're just telling the wackos
out there that they won't face any resistance when they come to kill. It
should rather be, "Shoot the shooter and then call the Police." End of
incident. It's actually pretty simple.
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy/gal with a gun."Run, hide, fight" is better than doing nothing.But, the
first rule of a gunfight is to bring a gun. Members of the congregation should
consider arming themselves, if they feel confident in doing so, and if they
rather only have the "run, hide, fight" option, that is their choice.Having a concealed weapons permit allows members to legally carry a self
defense weapon in church (except for LDS churches and the Wasatch Presbyterian
Church which have taken the option to prohibit firearms as allowed by Utah
law).An armed member of the congregation is certainly less of a
deterrent to evil killers than a uniformed cop, but far more effective than only
having the option to "run, hide, fight."Fight crime- shoot
back. But, pray that you never have to.
Run and hide allows the shooter to keep reloading. How about Fight, Fight,
Extremely wise. The times we are living in dictate that we as citizen's
take measures to protect ourselves rather than becoming victims to deranged and
evil people. I am not aware if the public schools have active programs for
defense as opposed to victimization, but I strongly support this type of
training for all citizens, most especially those most vulnerable.
I guess adding "Shoot Back" to the training would be just too
"'Run, Hide, Fight': A Utah Jewish synagogue trains
"I think it should be: Aim, Squeeze, Fire. Killers love
people to run from them. They hate it when they shoot back.
