Senate Staffers Instructed to ‘Attack’ in Gunman Situation : Roll Call

Senate Staffers Instructed to ‘Attack’ in Gunman Situation : Roll Call

Congressional law enforcement agents advised staff on Wednesday to run and hide in the event a shooter attacks, but as a last resort, police said: “Attack.”

“Don’t sit around and wait to be shot,” Gainer told the staffers and an additional 360 offices that viewed the event online. “Attack. Attack loudly. And hopefully some good will come out of it to someone.”

“The major message to those offices was: ‘We have not forgotten you out there. You have the tough job because you don’t have 1,800 officers around you, and there’s a lot of unknowns,’” Gainer said after the presentation. “I think we were trying to calm their fears.”
