Department of Homeland Security: “In case of Mass-Murderer attack grab scissors”.

Good if you are attacked by Construction Paper.

New York Post

shootervid3-620x345-220x220If 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.

The video, titled “Options for Consideration,” also advises that people who get caught in an “active shooter” situation should run away, hide under a desk or take cover out of the line of fire.

The nearly four-minute-long video opens with chilling scenes from the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, and the 2011 attempted assassination of Gabrielle Giffords.

But the video quickly shifts to hokey footage of office workers scampering under desks, crouching in corners and racing into closets to hide from a rampaging gunman on the loose.

“To protect your hiding place, lock the door if you can. Block the door with heavy furniture,” recommends the male narrator, speaking in measured, authoritative tones.

Other survival strategies promoted in the video include hiding “behind large items such as cabinets or desks. Remain quiet. Silence your cellphone or pager. Even the vibration setting can give away a hiding position.”

What are you supposed to do with the scissors? Cut their fingers off?

But in the liberal land of Unicorn Poop and Fairy Dust when you call the police they are suddenly beamed in by Captain Kirk and the USS Enterprise.

Let’s sum this up… The current administration, headed up by a man who chants the old Chicago saying about “bringing a gun to a knife fight” during his first Presidential campaign, the administration that has been and is still buying ammunition (non-Geneva-convention-compliant ammunition, btw — ammunition that can only legally be used in domestic situations) — buying ammunition literally faster than the industry can produce it, now exhorts us all to bring a pair of scissors to a gun fight.

Only in Obama World and in the Spock with a Beard Universe…
