Training priority should be "Fight, Run, Hide"
Or “fight, cover and reload, fight”

"(The shooter) just went ballistic," John Probst, who works at Henry Pratt and was in the building at the time told ABC. "[One victim] came running down; he was bleeding pretty bad."

Probst said he recognized the shooter as a coworker. Probst said he was "rolling down the aisles" with "a pistol with a laser on it."
This is exactly why I fought so hard to gain permission to carry at work. It's ironic that we were forced to watch the "Run, Hide, Fight" training video this week at the plant.
My work does not have 30.06/30.07 signs posted, so carrying would not be a violation of the law. However, carry of firearms in the building is prohibited per the employee manual (but not with 30.06/30.07 language), so it would serve as a justification to termination. Fortunately, I work from home most of the time.
I'm sorry you have to be defenseless at work. I was lucky in that I reported directly to the policy maker. And it took me two years to get our policy changed. Little by little, I fed information until he understood.

The news today of this workplace shooting is extremely troubling. You never know when someone is going to snap. Prayers for the victims who just went to work this morning expecting it to be a normal Friday.
