Be prepared to survive a shooting rampage, just in case. Step 1: Run Run first; ask questions later. Don’t miss your opportunity to escape by wasting time debating whether that noise was really a gunshot. Tip If you’re running from a shooter, run in a zigzag pattern. He’ll have a harder time hitting you, and the odds are even lower he’ll hit a major organ or artery. Step 2: Barricade the door If you’re trapped in a building with a shooter, lock yourself in a room and barricade the door with heavy furniture. The predator is likely to move on to more accessible victims. Step 3: Find a weapon Find some sort of weapon – a pair of scissors, a letter opener, hot coffee, a stapler, a fire extinguisher. Even if you don’t injure the attacker, you may be able to distract him or throw him off balance. Step 4: Take cover Take cover behind something sturdy, like a file cabinet or a metal desk. Tip Don’t make eye contact with or speak to the shooter. But if he talks to you, respond with an absurd question in the hopes of throwing him off guard. Step 5: Listen for reloading Listen for the 'click' that indicates his revolver is out of bullets, or the metallic clang that means the empty cartridge of his automatic pistol has fallen to the floor. He’ll have to pause to reload, giving you and others a chance to tackle him or escape. Step 6: Slow bleeding If you do get shot, slow the bleeding by keeping direct pressure on the wound. Tip If you think you might pass out from blood loss, place a hard object under your body, just above the wound, and lay on top of it. That way, if you do lose consciousness, your body weight will keep pressure on the wound. Step 7: Fight back If you find yourself unable to avoid a life-or-death struggle with the shooter, go for his most vulnerable areas: gouge his eyes with your index and middle fingers; jab his Adam’s apple; or knee him in the groin. Step 8: Report odd behavior Help prevent shooting rampages in the first place by reporting any odd behavior or threats to someone in authority. Did You Know? Homicide is the second leading cause of death on the job, after motor vehicle accidents.

I watched this when I was way younger, but coming back to it as a high schooler in a time when school shootings are happening again and again gives me chills.

If you live in USA and go to school you need this
Note how they say 'his' and 'he'. Obviously women can not be school shooters.

I know you can put your fingers into his eyes so that way he starts hurting himself but can you grab a pair of scissors and stabbed his eyes with it

I would do with the fire extinguisher because if you distract him then you could get on top of him and smash his head with the fire extinguisher knocking him out or you can go full doomguy and just smash his head in

Okay so why is it assumed that the shooter is male? Just saying, that’s pretty sexist. Women have threatened to do this sort of thing before, and not once is it even considered that the situation might be a female shooter.

Just nuke the school prior to the shooting so there will be nothing to shoot up

How to Survive a School or Office Shooting . . . . . . . . make sure your conceal-carry permit is up-to-date and always carry your weapon!!! If every conceal-carry holder kept their weapon on hand, there would be less fatalities made by crazed shooters!

Carry a gun on your person at all times would've been a good step in this situation. More law abiding responsible people carrying a firearm is the answer to this dilemma.

Step 9: Be very close friends with the shooter so that they send you a message ahead of time saying “Don’t come to work/school tomorrow.” All jokes aside if that does work you can actually use that to your advantage by reporting it to the police. They might hate you and seek revenge after being betrayed but hey,it’s for a good cause. :v

Do not do most of these thing, the number one thing to do is not interact with the shooter at all and make the most amount of distance from you too and do darrcad the door if it won't affect other or your own servival

Someone threatened to shoot up my school a few weeks ago and even though the police got involved someone could definitely do it. Someone recently brought a knife to school and cut two teachers. I saw all of it. Its crazy.
