    But you can't carry a firearm into a courthouse in GA. There are laws against that, and signs that let you know in case you didn't. So why train with drills like this?

    I guess it's another waste of tax payer money, huh? :roll:

    In case another inmate overpowers a deputy and takes the deputy's weapon and goes on a killing spree...

    Brian Nichols. As long as they let 4ft nothing officers guard dangerous prisoners alone...

    Either that or they are concerned one of their own is going to snap :shock:

    But they're trained professionals; that isn't possible.

    Does anyone else find that picture odd? They are walking in a straight line with their guns pointed at the back of the person in front of them :shock:

    I certainly wouldn't want to be on point!

    So, that doesn't apply to civilians? Does it not take a certain amount of time for any LE agency to show up?

    I saw that picture without reading the article and thought to myself "so...they get the call of an active shooter in the building and decide it is time for a mass murder/suicide?"

    *trainer's voice* Ok..so at the count of three you shoot the person in front of you in the back of the head. Dude at the end....you're on your own. Good luck.

    Well, with the percentage of hits to shots fired for the average police officer it wouldn't be horrible odds.

    I noticed the same thing about the picture. I even posted that queston. I believe i'm the third person to say something. DD214 was the name I posted under. I can't believe nobody there said um... Sir this doesn't make since.

    I have had plenty of CQB (Close Quarter Battle) training from the Marine Corps. And I have never once seen that ever done. I would call B.S. Big time if I was in that training evolution.

    Guns among Prisoners

    Prison guards don't carry guns because of the proven, well-known danger that the prisoners will overpower the guard and disarm him. This isn't speculation; it has happened many times over the years. Deputies and bailiffs in charge of courtroom security are also vulnerable to such attacks, especially in the back rooms that serve as holding cells in the courthouse, where many prisoners who are all scheduled for court that day will be held prior to actually walking into the courtroom when their case is called.

    One way to deal with the problem is to have more armed officers, so that after the bad guy gets the good guy's gun and kills him or her with it, the responding officers will shoot the bad guy. But the bad guy can still take out a couple of good guys before this happens.

    Another way to deal with the problem is to tether the gun to the deputy's belt with a thing but strong steel cable. It wouldn't save that deputy's life, but it would make it awfully difficult for the bad guy to use that gun effectively against anybody else, once the gun's owner is "dead weight" on the end of a short cable.

    Another way to address the problem is for deputies and bailiffs to have a special ring or bracelet that activates the gun, and if anybody not wearing that item of jewelry picks up the gun, it won't fire for them. A company called Mag-Na-Trigger has had such a system in place for DA revolvers since the late 1970s. Massad Ayoob praised it and has used it. I like the concept.

    Maybe not putting a female officer who weight's 140 lbs or less in the same room with a mass murderer who weights 200 lbs of pure muscle. That could help too.

    Bingo!

    OR let everyone have guns and then people will think twice. But then again...the unwashed massed are too under-trained and not professional enough to handle that fo-tay.

    No way. We need her to lead the Fulton County conga line. Much like a snake charmer, she'll dazzle the shooter with her beauty and moves while they wait for SWAT to show up.
