Advice From The Department Of Homeland Security: "If Attacked By A Shooter, Grab Some Scissors"

We first heard about this from a New York Post article on the topic.  Then we watched the video for ourselves.  It’ll make you want to defund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) immediately.  While the whole “grab scissors” to defend oneself during a mass shooting is pretty amusing, the more disturbing part is that 90% of the video just consists of people on their knees in cubicles cowering in fear or running panicked with their hands in the air.  All the while police in black uniforms and “assault weapons” race in to save the day!  The video is a great representation of how the DHS views the citizenry.  Feeble, helpless, pathetic little children.  You’ve gotta watch it for yourself!

WTF do you expect from our government. They're always advocating the use of scissors in a gun fight. Look at Ben Bernanke for instance. Even though Krugman thinks he's using a bazooka, he's really only using scissors.

If you want my scissors, you'll have to pry them from my cold dead fingers.

No, really.  

If I'm expected to either cower under my desk or defend myself with office supplies, I'll most likely end up dead.  

How about packing heat?  So I can shoot back?  What my buddy has a firearm too?  What if Ellen from HR is also armed? What if we stop pretending that the only way we'll survive an attack is from a bunch of GED scholars?

How can anyone in good conscience think arming these idiots with assualt rifles is a good idea?  Furthermore, these people need to be cut off from taxpayer funds immediately.  When you see they waste taxpayer money on garbage like this, it is no wonder we have a seemingly incurable spending problem.  How many millions of dollars of 'research' went into their determining the best way to win a gunfight is with scissors?  Jesus.

 

Here is an example of the caliber of the individuals that work for Homeland Security:

http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/video-shows-immigration-and-customs-...

Homeland Security official shows up at tow yard to reclaim sons towed car, beats tow truck drivers with tire iron, and finally pulls gun while they steal the car back.  Obama wants to give them assault rifles while he prohibits us from having them.  Something seems to have gone terribly terribly wrong with the goons at the federal government.

In my minds eye I see the dumbasses actually trying to fire the hollow points with the scissors.  Good enough for government work...

So tough guy, tell me what are you going to do next time? Pull out your gun and John Wayne him/them? What if you miss? Kill a bystander?

Tell me, was it a black dude? Are you a racist now too? Which is more important material wealth or your life? Did you know that statistically the gun is more likely to be accidentaly used to harm someone you know?

This "Ill draw faster and kill the dude" mentality is borderline insane, or the cowboys who think in mass shooting they can kill the shooter. Hell most people shit their pants when they see people getting shot. When the Representative Giffords was shot there were people with guns in the audience but like one of them put it "There was too much panic and confusion to do anything.. everything happed too fast".

When you get robbed gun or  knife point does it make you mad as hell? YES, even if you get beat up, you get angry as hell but stop and think for a moment, how you having the gun is going to escalate the situation.

People look at the stats, even US is quite safe country if you stay away from the certain bad neighborhoods.

Ps. I am not trying to take anybodys guns I just think its time to get sane again. This logic of "Only one who can stop a bad guy in a suicide vest is a good guy in a suicide vest" is frankly retarded.

Using your logic, the cops and secret service should turn in their guns too, since they won't be able to outdraw the bad guys. What, are they going to miss and kill an innocent bystander? Besides, cops kill more black people, so they must be racist. Why are we arming racist people to kill blacks?

If you look at statistic, the US is pretty safe, so cops don't need guns and most presidents are not assassinated, so they don't need armed guards, just stay away from certain neighborhoods.

I'm not trying to disarm law enforcement, I just think it's time to get sane again. This logic of the "only way to keep the president safe is by surrounding him with guns" is frankly retarded. I think you should start a movement to disarm the secret service in order to keep the president safe.

There aren't going to be near enough policemen for the trouble ahead. And the culture of law enforcement is being manipulated anyway.  The neighborhood policeman used to be your friend, but some modern TV shows and well-publicized incidents seem intended to undermine the public trust. For police officers AND the public, it's going to be very important to check perception and distinguish myth from reality.

Montezuma:  I have no interest in revenge or harming anyone. I'm not stupid. I ask one thing only: to be left alone.  That's all.  "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." My interest is in DETERRENCE.  Any police officer will tell you that predators are highly risk-averse.  They see precautions, they tend to move on.  The odds are shifted in my favour, at least a little. 

You must understand that there are people out there who can't stand that.  They join gangs or get recruited for noble-sounding cons like Agenda 21, but a control freak is a control freak, and it is simply not in their nature to leave other people alone.  They are literally driven to take what's yours and run your life, even kill you if they can get away with it. People like us are not the problem.  THEY ARE -- them and their blind followers.

Yes I hear you, but truth is deterrence is hard to come by, open carry maybe with big arse Desert Eagle. People say it works the same way as bar fights, usually they try pick on the little guy&easy prey. So only deterrent I know would we open carry and a t-shirt saying "Shoot to kill".

Of course in South Africa they lure cops in to situations to kill them for their guns so.

Gangs are their lemmings are the problem, of course police should be the one shutting them down but as long as this "war on drugs" goes on there are people willing to do anything it takes to get in to the game.

Personally I dont think civilians should carry guns at all but thats another story and way too utopistic in countries with a lot of firearms already, also Sam Harris had a point saying, "if you are in a diner and mad man starts shooting are you glad that he is the only with the gun" survival instinct in that moment doenst give a shit about bystanders.

Ps. Good to see you are one of the "reasonable" dudes here and not the gun nut bunker living armageddon waiting loony who think they are going to William Wallace the US government and take back their saloon, while having a tin hat protecting them from messages lizard people are sending from the CIA HQ.

We could probably have a good discussion about reasons why gun culture exists at all. Is a peaceable society one that is generally prosperous and / or lacking in extremes between most rich and most poor?  I would think that small government and economic growth would be key factors in giving the average joe HOPE and reducing potential motivation to break rules.  I haven't seen a report that would suggest marked rise in crime during economic depression, food riots notwithstanding, although I seem to remember reading about overt anti-semitism in some communities that culminated in extensive property damage. Some reports suggest that food stamps are the only thing keeping us from disintegrating.

"YOU.WON'T.WIN"

You (2PlanksStuckUpYerAss) are an amazingly stupid pc of shit. I admire your tenacity equally as well as your idiocy.

Go look at yourself in the mirror, dope. Private buyers ANNUALLY purchase in excess of 4 billion rounds of ammo in the USA. There at multiplied tens of MILLIONS of long rifle owners. MANY, MANY of whom are military trained. The .MIL brothers who are currently employed by .GOV well know that their retired and discharged brethern are indeed in possession, fully stocked and entirely capable of completely obliterating any and all comers.

You are a fully deluded ass.

There are 300 million guns in the US. You do the math, you complete fucking idiot.

Toughest gun laws in the US are in Chicago. The murder capital of the US, where gang bangers have LOTS of guns. And you think those nice boys are going to turn them all in? You can't really be so incredibly naive and stupid. This is a joke, right? If not, go buy your pair of scissors and STFU.

Really want to "do something"? Why don't you go to Chicago and disarm all the nice gang boys. Next week DHS might even come by and wipe up the grease spot where you got your brains blown out. You are beneath contempt.

Actually, soldiers at Ft Hood, one of the largest army bases in the world, go unarmed.    It's a gun free zone except under narrowly controlled circumstances.   Local cops had to come save expensively trained killers from a colleague with a mere handgun, the retarded Five Seven or whatever the silly thing was called with the weird little high pressure cartridge.   Carrying on about Allahu Akbar and all that.

Nobody "needs" military-style scissors.  Does that mean I have to remove the pistol grip from my pinking shears to make them legal?

I sure do get tired of folks telling me what I do and don't NEED.  The Second Amendment doesn't rise to the level of need -- all I gotta do is WANT one.  As for the framers not having any concept of the modern armament now available, there was no restriction on having a cannon if I was a man of means and could afford one.   Sure would look great parked on the front porch as a warning.

Thats another good one Rocky...this ridiculous canard of modern rifles & pistols not envisioned by the founding fathers so therefore they would not ALLOW them to the people.

RockyRacoon, I agree completely with what you are saying. However, I would like to add one additional thought... Nobody "needs" military-style scissors until they really NEED them. Similarly, nobody "needs" a fire extinguisher in their home until they have a fire and NEED a fire extinguisher.

Interesting.  The case for carrying a fire extiguisher is pretty strong, and if I recall those have been used in movies to take out bad guys, even some armed with full auto weapons.   Think Die Hard with the "I'm Mac" guy in it.

Yea, that's the ticket.And rescind most idiotic gun laws.

  Then I can get a MG-42....WINNING!

 

  Yeah...the .gov really cares about us...enough to suppress and control us.They say be afraid.

+1000.  Fucking sick of this messaging of disarmament.  It's actually racisim and it's code for 'disarm whitey'.  Nobody gives a shit about the thousands of murders in the ghettos each year.  No one's talking about going into these neighborhoods to take their weapons to clean them up an make them safe.  Somehow its always those POS Tea Party white guys and their assault weapons they focus on.  What's going on in the Democratic party and media is no different that what happened in WWII when the government dehumanized the enemy into Japs and Krauts with propaganda.  When the doors are kicked in to take the weapons and fathers, mothers, children are killed in these homes to take assault weapons the other side will have so dehumanized them that they will be those TeaBagger evil white guys getting what they deserve.

Since America has been going down-hill a mini Civil Cold War has emerged.

Tyrants, dictators and politicians and a corrupt government, corrupt Wall Street (London too) have ALWAYS been here...so why the change in attitute all of a sudden?!

@ Two-You're right-the sudden drop in the standard of living bitched slapped millions of people to the reality that the fucks in Washington DC are subservient to Wall Street and not the ones that are actually forced to pay them their yearly raises. 911 started waking up some; losing half your savings woke up many others.

The Gun Controll thing is just an obvious blatant USSR move to make us vulnerable, further evaporate the Bill of Rights and create division among the population.

You might want to know there are quite a few of well trained soldiers that  will not cowar to the Bullshit DC brings out, and reverse allegiences.Will freedom win?

Now, let's all just admit that if we turn over our guns to the Federal government we'll all feel safer. The government will be there to protect us. And, just because a few of your co-workers are massacred by DHS prozac induced sleeper agents doesn't mean it wasn't worth the 45-minute wait for the heavily armed Federal SWAT teams to swoop in and apprehend the assailant after he's commited suicide upon the orders of his TSA handler giving instructions over earphones.

You know damn well its better to wait for the governmental to swoop in and protect you, so......,  on second thought, don't even think about picking up those scissors because when SWAT arrives they might accidentally suspect you of being a terrorist and shoot you.
