Somewhere, probably on a range, either formal or informal, Bill Jordan is crying right now. From Fox News:
Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an "active shooter."
What? Oh, Bullshit. Run and hide? Are you serious?
“The Department of Homeland Security takes very seriously its responsibility to protect all of its employees from threats that may surface in the workplace,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Michael Friel said in a written statement to
Hey, Friel, you're a disgrace. Check your manhood at the door and quit now, before someone comes along and takes your White Rain.  There is only one response to an active shooter.  Close on him with fire and maneuver and stop the threat with extreme violence.  That's the response.  Violent intervention.

Run and Hide?  Only if you're a girly-man.  Oh, and I know plenty of female law enforcement officers who would be covering my back during that whole "fire and maneuver" thing.  It isn't about your gender, bud, it's about doing your job. Your job, obviously, is to wimp-out and cower in the darkness like the cowardly, worthless, stinking, cowering bastard that you are.  Man up or get out of the business.

For those of you who don't remember Bill Jordan, he was a Border Patrol agent and a Marine during WWII.  He served on the southwest border and retired after 30 years.  He was responsible for convincing Smith and Wesson to chamber the Model 66 in .357 magnum and was a per-eminent advocate for the use of the double-action revolver in law enforcement.  He designed holsters and served on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association.  He also wrote a marvelous book on gunfighting, No Second Place Winner. 

Run and Hide?  You make me sick.

Hat tip to Termite for the link.

Well said Paw Paw. Sounds like a political appointee instead of a law enforcement officer.

Paw Paw, keep telling it like it is. This poor example of a supervisor may be afraid the "active shooter" may be found dead with a "Fast and Furious" gun in his possession.

Even worse, now the Administration will point to their run and hide orders and use them as justification for a bunch more militarized Federal sturmtruppen.

In a rising dictatorship, "but we face such terrible threats" is ALWAYS the prelude to military rule.

This is just one more sign of Obama's dreams of being the Grand Mufti, one more hint that he might not want to step down when his successor, Mitt Romney, is inaugurated.
