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!

if you really think the cops will get there that fast, i want to lnow where you live.   even in my small town you would 2 or 3 minutes from calling 911 to a cop showing up

Or the one in Arizone where the cops shot the homeowner in the back and were heard over the radio agreeing to cover it up, but then were cleared.

The police don't enter until the shooting stops.  The police won't risk their lives to save innocent children if there is any chance of them getting hurt.  Even if a few wanted to, the orders from on high say safety [for the police] first.

I have some suspicion that Feinstein might try to classify them as assault weapons, require a background check, and possibly even ban them all together. I suspect Governor Cuomo will announce a ban for New York sometime next week.

just call the cops and wait for them-oh wait-you'd be dead by then. last night on local Chicago news there was a story on how DHS is throwing top-notch military equipment at all of the local podunk PDs and the reporter's gripe was the taxpayer $ that was being spent on MRAPs and night vision(not that $ is not a concern) but said nothing as to WHY all of this shit is needed by Barney Fife. DHS has shut down their gun giveaway because too many were turning up missing especially w/ Chicago PD-shocking-I know.

The FAA trained aircraft personnel to act that way in case of a hijacking, for decades.   They drilled and drilled and drilled on that.   That was of course based on non-suicidal hijackers, of which there were a lot in the news around the world up until that then, particularly in Europe.    The suicidal type of hijackers, just about uniquely islamic, were a pretty novel thing.

"... and remember, if no scissors are available, grab paper, as many sheets as you can. When the active shooter passes by, take the edge of the paper and drag it across his neck from behind him, preferrably across his jugular vein if possible. Severe paper cuts and confusion on the part of the active shooter may be your only way out of this terrible situation... That or a S & W 357 with jacketed hollow points... Your choice..."

Do you realize how bizarrely likely that Is? Chefs would hide their knives and have to license each one, kept under lock and key, only someone in good standing would be allowed a kitchen knife.. Or those who work in the right house, where such rules are of course unnecessary. Metals confiscation is not limited to the precious variety. Understand a society in decay, understand what it means to go without on a grand scale with a government beholden only to those whose influence they must buy, the level of control garnered unbridled is near limitless.

I love that i sound like a lunatic and all, but i am completely serious.

PAY ATTENTION FOLKS, there is a plan here:"When the conspirators get ready to take over theUnited States they will use  fluoridated water and vaccines tochange people's attitudes and loyalties and make them docile,apathetic, unconcerned and groggy. According to their ownwritings and the means they have  already confessedly employed,the conspirators have deliberately planned and developed methodsto mentally deteriorate, morally debase, and completely enslavethe masses. They will prepare  vaccines containing drugs thatwill completely change people. Secret Communist plans forconquering America were adopted in 1914 and published in 1953.These plans called for  compulsory vaccination with vaccinescontaining change agent drugs. They also plan on using  diseasegerms, fluoridation and vaccinations to weaken the people andreduce the population."  (Impact of Science on Society, byBertrand Russell)

Nearly the entire us is now fluoridated, even while nearly all us conquests after ww2, after regaining some democratic authority over their own people have chosen to forego and discontinue public water supply fluoridation. Vaccinations can greatly reduce your chance of contracting specific strains of a disease, but over vaccination, like the over use of antibiotics leads to newer more pervasive and deadly strains of viruses and bacteria, it's best to forego vaccination in many cases, but not all. A naturally built immune system is your best defense, which is wrought through exposure to people, places, and at its best the natural world. And by the way, your food is tainted, invest in yore health by choosing as close to the source as possible.

Misrepresenting different modes of cognizance deters society from recognizing significant potential . I still think it's insane that i can't just fucking insult someone if i want. And retarded, is a legitimate and long used root, no worse than dumb, or stupid. If you want to destigmatize, then work on more properly defining and assisting individuals who fall outside the "normal" spectrum of or society, on your time. They will prove their worth.

Dude, are you retarded?

Effects of retarded thinking: In a situation where the post of another post is retarded too far, namely knowless, the poster fails to percieve the joke stemming from a previous poster avatar name, reTARD, along with the combination of previous ZH posts, see link: FULL RETARD, allowing it insufficient time to burn cognitively in the brain. This causes a loss of sense of humor and poor understanding of the human condition. Hesitation and backfiring will accompany the loss of comprehension causing the brain to foul while becoming a FULL LIBTARD which results in leaving pussy assed comments in the ZH blog-o-sphere.

Uncle Janet loves scissors.

The haircut is a tell.

Also, DHS employees will make for great human shields.

Not only that, but those deadly scissors will empty your wallet. And, the closer you get to the hinge the more the money falls out.

Fucking scissors........What no one is saying, and it's so blatantly obvious that you should all be ashamed, is there is absolutely no need for scissors, or guns, or knitting needles, or even hiding under desks if you simply TAKE THE FUCKING TIME to understand the aggressor. Get to know him a bit, sympathize with his situation, try giving him a hug........Who doesn't fucking like hugs?? Everyone just jumps to conclusions and gets all paranoid when a 300lb scary looking dude kicks the fucking door to the office down and starts screaming and waiving a gun around.......

 I was a "kid in the hall" during "Consumer Economics" class.

It only took one question to light the fire.

"Why isn't it called producer economics?"

Has anyone ever seen a 100 round magazine for an AR15 (semi-automatic) .... that "Piers of Shit" Morgan keeps implying every one has one ?

Sure, I've seen them and used them.  They're typically heavy and don't work worth a damn, not to mention hellishly expensive.  Major feeding issues.  I'd rather have three 30 round mags.  That's the way of many extended magazines.  They sound/look scary until you actually try and use the damn things.

I predict sometime in the next few weeks there will be an "active shooter situation" and  CNN will report about the "hero" that managed to difuse the situation by using a sharp object, perhaps a pair of scissors.

DHS is giving advice that is contrary to conventional wisdom for many years. something to do with not bringing a knife to a gun fight".  Really, a pair of scissors?  Scissors never beat gun, not even a fucking musket.

Isn't it ironic that the generation that stuck flowers in the rifles of "the man" and rioted against the authority protesting Vietnam and the tyranny of government is now leading the charge in giving the "man" all the power and weaponry and supporting government abuse of power and tearing apart the very civil rights they worked so hard for in the first place?
