Homeland Security has advice for confronting mass murders: scissors

Scissors EquationThat’s right: Political Correctness in its ultimate form of deadly stupidity — proffered by the equally inane Janet Napolitano.

WASHINGTON — Is your workplace getting shot up by a crazed gunman?

No problem — just grab a pair of scissors and fight back!

That’s some of the helpful advice in a new instructional video from the Department of Homeland Security that was posted on the agency’s Web site just a month after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

“If you are caught out in the open and cannot conceal yourself or take cover, you might consider trying to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available,” says the narrator in the video, which shows an office worker pulling scissors out of a desk drawer.

Frankly, I’m surprised that warm, soothing and conciliatory words weren’t proffered as a first line of defense.

Once again, proof of the sheer Idiocracy endemic in DC.

    • And to a Leftist’s way of thinking, never bring a gun to a gunfight; that would be altogether too harsh and judgmental. Remember: violence never solves anything.


  1. Another example of government waste. It had to cost the taxpayers something to make that absolutely stupid and worthless video and it shows me the DHS thinks the American people are morons. Oops…we re-elected Obama so we ARE morons.

  2. Shouldn’t we first try to hug the attacker and repeat over and over…”It’s not your fault…it’s not your fault”

    After a few of these, it is almost certain the shooter will drop his weapon, and start crying.

    • I suspect these attackers were never included in T-ball many years ago and found themselves resultingly mentally impacted.


  3. This is almost funny if it wasn’t true! My gosh! Didn’t they learn anything, NEVER run with scissors in your hands! Nimrods!

    Okay, this is why I carry mace, a knife and hopefully a concealed pistol.
