Surviving an Active Shooter Event

My college's public relations office, working with Risk Services and the LBPD, posted this announcement to the college community, "A Reminder - Be Prepared - What to do in the case of an Active Shooter."

On campus, California's a gun free state, although watching the video it's clear that someone needed to be on hand [added: it's not clear that the guard shot at 1:15 is armed, although talking as he is so casually, he might as well be off duty in any case], armed and ready to defend against the intruder. See Weasel Zippers for what's happening in Montpelier, Ohio, "School Board in Ohio Unanimously Votes to Arm Custodial Staff." Hey, it's a start.
