Orange County Workers Trained In Pseudo Self-Defense

posted on December 11, 2015

Terrorism hit a little too close to home for Orange County supervisors. In the wake of the San Bernardino attacks, Board of Supervisors Chairman Todd Spitzer announced Tuesday that Orange County employees will be trained to defend themselves. However, that training won’t take place at a gun range—as California state laws prohibit the possession of firearms in any city, county, state or federal building—but rather using routine office items in self-defense.

A committee will be assigned the task of assessing the vulnerability of all county buildings and will provide recommendations for training, safety upgrades and new protocols. “It might be a paper clip holder, but it’s gonna be something,” Spitzer said.

Might we suggest a more effective recommendation: Allow law-abiding gun owners with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns to work. They would be a much more powerful defensive tool against terrorists than staplers and paper clips.
