Homeland Security Has Advice For Confronting Mass Murders: Scissors

 

 

 

 

 

  The geniuses at DHS offer some survival tips should you find yourself in a mass shooting situation … of course they fail to take into account the fact that schools , long ago and at government dictat turned in their “assault scissors” only to replace them with the blunt-tipped ones so no one could get hurt …

   It would be laughable if the subject wasn’t so deadly serious .

 

” 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.”

 

   Complete with a how-to instructional video… 

 

” 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.” ”

 

 

   How many millions of taxpayer dollars were spent creating this monumental tribute to common sense ?
