I keep a loaded gun in my desk and I train and approve of all coworkers doing the same.

i have a carry permit but....

wtf are you going to accomplish by pulling a gun on someone like that except maybe getting yourself thrown in jail for manslaughter?

guns are last resorts, not universal cure-alls

grab a couple other men, subdue the psycho until the police arrive.

If you look on the right when the angry dude is smashing the copier, you'll see a guy filming him.

Here's the video.

Yeah it's russian. Kinda crazy hearing one of the chicks in the background shouting "Don't hit him! Stop it! He calmed down! What are ye doing? You are going to kill him, stop it!" when they pull the guy off the desk and are trying to restrain him.

I am not sure where ye are seeing a fire axe though. Dude attacked the copier with some kinda stand, which is a long long way off.

Also: after this thread I am very glad I don't work in an american office, where you might get some Mad Max wannabe encouraging everyone to pack heat.

Yeah me too I carry an Uzi when I go to work (I'm a teacher) and I carry an M16 in the trunk of my car and I sleep with an AK-47 beside the bed and if anyone gives me any hassle I just pull a gun on them because USA is the best country in the world

Yup. One half of the population is polite. The other half is in jail. Charged with murder.

I find the reaction of the coworkers more amazing, in societies where people can relate to each other in a more personal way, some of the ~10 adults standing around would have tried to calm him down and possibly restrain him... But the zombies in that office were just acting like scared little children.

I feel sorry for everyone in that video. Especially the guy who went crazy. I'm quite sure he didn't do it out of sheer enjoyment. He ruined his life probably over some other ****up like huge loans, family problems, job related **** or some other stuff.

Terrible.

Still funny for a few mins though.

hardly ruined his life, probably had to go to court pay a fine, maybe do a little community service, all he would have to do to get back on track is move somewhere else and make up a fake reference on his CV in place of his old workplace.

Like a poster above me said - props to the guy who took the axe off him.

Lol @ the 2 women hiding behind the big guy at about 1:30, and trying to shove him forwards into the fray.

It might be the quality of the image, but did anyone else notice the monitors he threw both had no cables attached?

Would also likely have to go to a mental institution to get treatment, have to disclose that as part of his medical history, etc. Plus this is Russia where the courts can be pretty damn vicious, rather than handing everyone suspended sentences like in the West, and judging by his job he doesn't have the funding to get good treatment from the courts or the hospitals.

And again, where are ye all seeing the axe? He's got some stand, which isn't very heavy or dangerous, that is taken off him by the little security guard.

Old CRT's, likely not screw-in cables and thus easy to pull out.

It was not a fire axe. If it was, the dude who put it down wouldn't have left it in the same room as the guy; if you pause when he's swinging in the colour camera video, you'll see it's a stand with a circular base.

Bah! Most of you certainly seem like office workers - got that "urban anti gun attitude" that the rest of America laughs at. Soft lives, effete results.

Well, if my gun in my desk bothers you guys, then keep electing politicians who want to put me away for it. Go ahead and elect those who want to outright disarm us all.

Those of us on the receiving end of "what you want" are waiting for it.

(and I have yet to meet a police officer or soldier who wants to enforce "your laws").

... or somebody else snaps while he's on lunch break.
... or one of the kids finds this cool GTA controller on bring-your-spawnlings-to-work-day.
... or somebody plain out has a bad day, and gets shot for it, despite not being a serious threat to anyone.

I have observed that the source of what causes a society where people are "snapping" are also the same people who want to turn our world into one big padded cell.

They will never admit their progressive psychobabbling social engineering schemes are a failure.

As someone who works as security I have to say the last thing I want is for the office staff to be armed with guns.

^^ This. One guy actually makes the effort to control the situation and everyone else just gawks, even when the one guy could use help in pinning the berserker down.

If you can't take the guy down, then at least help/encourage people to evacuate.

I don't trust people enough to allow giving them guns, but I don't trust them because they're all thieves, murderers and just generally idiots that deserve to die. This is why I'd like to own a gun, just in case I have to bust a cap, yo.
