    Really never could have thought to hide form a shooter.

    It had some good tips in it like letting people know the priority LE will have and how not to get in their way or expect them to be helping you until the shooter is down. I would think the run or hide or run and hide stuff would be obvious, but some people do not always possess good common sense (an opinion reinforced every time I come here )

    it's ok advice for many folks.

    they didn't have an option I would take though. ( grabbing some scissors to take on a gunman is really not all that smart... but at least they threw in a bone for those whom are more likely to take the guy out rather than run away)

    Is this a stupid almost "common sense" video? Yes.
    Should we still support PSA things like this? Yes.
    As stupid as it may sound there are stupid people out there and when tragedy strikes videos like these still should be made.

    I all depends on what the threat level color code is currently.

    I actually think it's informative. Yes, it seems like common sense; but common sense often needs reinforcement. Frankly, I think it should be played in every school in the country. It just might save lives.

    Edit: Oh, the scissors part. Ridiculous. As Indiana Jones proved, never bring scissors to a gunfight.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
