Homeland Security has advice for confronting mass murders: scissors
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/s … zePd6trYoM

"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"

A scissor up the nose is no laughing matter.

"Sorry, mate, I thought you were a terrorist!"

Who Knew?  DHS just ordered 7000 FULL AUTO M16 style "personel defense" rifles for its agents.

Taxpayers could have v been  saved lots of money if they just went to WallyWorlds sewing dept instead!!!!!

But if you are carrying scissors, you can't run up to the shooter. You must walk carefully and slowly.

That's odd. The Department of Homeland Security is "training" TSA employees to "run away" in the event of a mass shooting scenario.

that's what I'd do.  If someone shoots up our office, I'm jumping out my window (to the roof next door) and running the fuck away.  Fuck a scissors!

It's what any sane person would do. However, TSA employees are A) not sane, B) incapable of being "trained," and C) for the most part incapable of getting up to a trot, let alone "running away."

Running away is always the best option when confronted with a better armed opponent. Sitting ducks are easy targets.

Make sure you have a CSP - concealed scissors permit. Also be sure that they are not on the banned assault scissor list, or that they have been properly grandfathered in.
