That's the advice from the British Government if you're confronted by terrorists.... I guess they are following the French example?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/new...-attacks-London.html

Run away! Britain’s top counter-terror officer tells Britons to ‘run as far as possible then hide’ if there are attacks in London

Britons should ‘run away as far as possible’ if Islamic State terrorists hit London, the country’s most senior counter-terror police officer said today.

Scotland Yard Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said people should flee rather than ducking down where they are - and then hide once they cannot flee any further from the attack.

He said it was important for people to call police once they are in a safer location, adding that following the ‘run, hide, tell’ advice could help save lives if terrorists try to cause mass casualties.

This is the society that once ruled most of the known world.... What happened to them?

They don't deserve dominion over my shoes with this crap.

Since ISIS is just as likely to target police, it seems this directive is telling the police to run and hide too.

Their laws have pretty effectively seen to it that armed resistance, if possible, will be prosecuted by the government. It's pitiful.

Our own Department of Homeland Security’s “run, hide …” guidance for responding to active killers has been criticized as feckless, but at least the last step is “fight” rather than “tell.” The “fight” part upsets a lot of people even here when it’s discussed, but we’re fortunate that our country hasn’t gotten so spineless as to completely discount fighting back as an option.

I am curious, though, what this has to do with the French. Has the French government given similar advice to its people? If so, there were a lot of Parisians who would have benefited from it recently if they’d had the chance to do so.

Thats why I so despise the term "Shelter in Place". Its one step below "Run Away" as youre not even doing anything except cowering.

The new slogan should be "Get Some!"

Can you believe this? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/new...-attacks-London.html

The nation that ruled the world, and helped defeat Nazi Germany says that if its attacked, its citizens should run and hide? Sheesh.

Keep your eyes peeled boys, they are just about in range!

I have felt since I first heard he term Shelter In Place that it was coined so that the PC crowd could feel Tacticool also.

The Cower in Place term may take a little time to get used to but we will hear it on CNN soon, or some words like it.

To quote my uncle Sam, "Get the fuck outa here with that shit, willya!!"

The UK population is over 65 Million.

The number of legal firearms in private ownership is substantially LESS than 1.5 Million.

Of those, less than 10 per cent are owned by city dwellers, who are required by law to keep them locked up.

So an attack in, say, London would be met by....what?

Armed citizens?

Nope.

Armed police?

Undoubtedly, but not very many, simply because there ARE not very many.

Please give me YOUR solution. I'm sure that many of us over here would just LOVE to hear it.

Armed with what, exactly?

Bare hands against people armed with fully automatic weapons?

That'll work.

Great Britain is not the only country in which the battle should begin by facing down their own rulers.

Well hell, we could send England a massive shipment of long guns and hand guns like we did in 1940 to help ward off Hitler's Army.

Wait...uh, never mind. We never got those guns back.

Worse than that, according to an article I read some years back (American Rifleman?) those guns were never even issued to the Home Guard. They just disappeared.

Probably just dumped into the ocean. Many tons of British/American/German small arms and ammo were wasted the same way in late 1945.

They even kicked the man who held England together, Churchill, out of office.

Sir, you are misinformed.

They WERE issued, and those with a different calibre than .303 were marked accordingly.

Also - Congress had not authorized the gift of supplies delivered after the cutoff date, so the U.S. charged for them, usually at a 90% discount. Large quantities of undelivered goods were in Britain or in transit when Lend-Lease terminated on 2 September 1945. Britain wished to retain some of this equipment in the immediate post war period. In 1946, the post-war Anglo-American loan further indebted Britain to the U.S. Lend-Lease items retained were sold to Britain at 10% of nominal value, giving an initial loan value of £1.075 billion for the Lend-Lease portion of the post-war loans. Payment was to be stretched out over 50 annual payments, starting in 1951 and with five years of deferred payments, at 2% interest.[67] The final payment of $83.3 million (£42.5 million), due on 31 December 2006 (repayment having been deferred in the allowed five years and during a sixth year not allowed), was made on 29 December 2006 (the last working day of the year). After this final payment Britain's Economic Secretary to the Treasury formally thanked the U.S. for its wartime support.

Thank you.

PS - The British government also settled the dept with Canada on the same day - 'The Treasury will send £42.4 million to the US and £9.98 million to Canada via electronic payment, the 50th instalment on a loan that without which Britain may have collapsed under the cost of six years of war with Germany.'

Tac, I hope you're right, but GWbiker and I were referring to the weapons collected by the NRA from civilians for distribution to the Home Guard, and I think you're referring to Lend-Lease.
