DHS Tips for Surviving Mass Shootings: Run, Hide, or Arm Yourself with Scissors

Activist Post

The video below is not a report by The Onion. It's an actual instructional video recently put out by the Department of Homeland Security called "Options for Consideration Active Shooter Training Video".

It's accompanied by this description from DHS:
Options for Consideration demonstrates possible actions to take if confronted with a active shooter scenario. The instructive video reviews the choices of evacuating, hiding, or, as an option of last resort, challenging the shooter. The video also shows how to assist authorities once law enforcement enters the scene.
The video suggests that if you find yourself in an active shooter situation you should either run or hide. And "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".

To depict "overpowering the shooter" the DHS hilariously shows a man grabbing a pair of scissors. After all you'd likely be in a gun-free zone where the only one armed is a lone nut.

To finish of this ridiculous training in how to be a cowardly victim, the DHS teaches us how to fully submit to the police when they arrive at the scene. Don't worry if the police push you to the ground, the DHS says it's only for your safety.

In the first instance where they warn you about the police, the fellow drops face down on the ground the moment a detective comes around the corner. I don't think he'd have had time to figure out if it was the "shooter" or not. Just a silly observation, but it was kind of funny to see the guy drop early.

Myself, I'll keep my guns and defend myself, family or co-workers the proper way. More guns in the hands of private individuals means less crime - PERIOD.

The DHS only recommends using scissors for defense when forks or spoons are not easily available.

And remember to never run with scissors, unless running at an armed attacker... it's okay to poke their eyes out.

Peace,

I carry my framing nailer everywhere I go.

The key is to look more nuts than everyone else.

Women might consider a smaller brad nailer, they are easily hidden in a large hand bag.

Has our government gone completely off the rails?

Lets not forget other about other office supplies. Sharp pencils, and staplers maybe would help. Come on DHS think!!

Don't think, don't plan on overcoming the scum, just hide! Run!

Just set yourself up like a sitting duck!

Like sheep!

A sorry vid. PATHETIC!

As soon as some nut goes on a scissor rampage the government will ban pointy scissors and only let us have those round pointed ones we used in kindergarten. Made out of plastic, just to be safe.

As DHS arms it's self with 1.5 billion
rounds of 40 and 223 cal. bullits, and also wants to arm it self with 7000 high capicity, quick firing assault rifles, (Hmmm) wants
law abiding citizens to arm themselves with
sissors ??? Wow, what are they going to use all that on, and I only get sissors, scares me, or
am I missing something ???

Have you played the child's game of "rock, paper, scissors"? The rules of that game state that scissors are no good against rocks but can defeat paper.If the shooter also has rocks then the defender will be in serious trouble, since (s)he can blunt the scissors, which are only good for cutting paper!!!!

Run with scissors?

Can I tape the scissors to a gun?

MLW said...

I got it! Double barrel scissors.

Are the scissors black? Do they have certain grips that are aggressive? Are they strong enough to cut through high capacity sheet stacks? If so they may be classified as "assault scissors" rather than defensive......

Wow, how fcukin stupid are those people?

About as stupid as someone who believes his gun will save him from:

Drones
Poison chemtrails
Bio weapons
Weaponized microwave devices
Tanks


Gun lovers are extremely good at calculating the advantage or weakness of various firearms and speculating about what might be best.
As for taking a realistic look at the weapons the government could use against their guns..........they are idiots, fantasizing fools not living in the real world. Sad.

Oh, as if a pair of scissors will trump a handgun, a rifle, or a shotgun. What in HELL kind of advice is that, for Pete's sake? Running and hiding make sense, but arming oneself with scissors? That won't save anyone from a crazed gunman; but, instead, put them at greater risk. It would be a whole lot safer to be armed with a loaded pistol of some kind.

Guns aren't good verse drones or tanks? True.
But a soft squishy mother fucker has to drive those things.
And as a former tanker, I can tell you. Ya gotta shit some time.
There is always a way. Stop being a pussy.

Bows and arrows is the answer! Although not good at close range where a hand gun would be better it is an effective, silent and deadly weapon. In a marksman's hands it is as lethal as any gun.
Taking on an army of tanks would be a problem, but as an insurgency tool it would be excellent.
600 Spartans held off a whole army so it is not always the weapon that wins the battle.
The point it that the training and spirit of the warrior is as just as important as the weapon that he uses!

Land of the free. Home of the brave. Be sure to hide as everyone around you is shot and killed. Abandon the wife and kids, it's look out for number one. Wait for the police, who are hiding behind armored vehicles until the scene is secure!

America, is now led by the worlds biggest pussies!

LOL! And I thought momma always said not to run with scissors. The US is going from dumb to dumber in record time.

Pump action scissors?
Automatic scissors?
concealed scissors?
scissors with a spare blade?
Will some of these be made illegal?
Will the stationer own the world?

Coming soon to a TV near you from DHS comedy series inc.

Scissors vs. Gun, stoooopid, lets all make jokes.

Gun vs. Government weaponry like bio weapons, drones, chemtrails..........yeah, that'll work, lets buy more guns. Fools.

these anti-gun folks sure like to call names ... it is getting more comical all the time to witness their meltdown on forums and comments sections ...

they totally ignore the reality shown us through state approved news sources on how a bunch of farmers with sticks n stones n old WWII weapons can hold off the entire military of a 'super power'

All you concealed carry people, make sure you are loaded with hollow points for the day when we do what the founding fathers told us to do when the government becomes a tyrant sob. Unfortunately, our government will call in the communists, their finest creation, but the prophecies for America say fury will rise up into our protectors face and those mighty communist armies will be totally destroyed in a dramatic fashion. The whole world will then be converted to worshipping their creator. So our pain won't have been in vain.

Interesting that governments fear their armed subjects. That woman on the top of the congress building in Washington, D.C. has a sword. We should all start spelling Congress with a lower case C. Washington d.c. to symbolize they are a pack of rascals except for Ron Paul.

Most of these comments give me faith that America will rise again!
My love to you! The prophecies for America indicate we will eventually be victorious. But not with legalized porn, strip clubs, nude dancing and murdering incoming souls.

The spirit of America is now " I got my paycheck; lets spend it up, Lets, jump in our car, MUSCLE CAR, Lets do it, do it do it...

Let me put this into perspective for a minute. What percentage of Americans will ever be in this situation? Maybe 0.1, or 0.01%? Seems to me this is just more fear mongering, which is all these alphabet agencies do these days. I'm surprised they didn't show an arab man running through the hallways pushing office women around and making men look fearful and weak.

In a typical office setting scissors are going to be about the best weapon you will have readily available.

What do you call someone who is smart enough to understand that scissors can protect you from a gun...........but too stupid to understand that a gun cannot protect you from government weapons like drones, tanks, bio weapons and chemtrails?

A gun nut.
