‘Tackle crazed gunmen with SCISSORS or just hide under your desk’: Homeland Security’s controversial advice video for fighting lone wolf shooter. They’d be better off to tell everyone to keep a 45 Auto in their desk drawer and if you see something crazed with a gun, shoot it.

No she’s not. You could always hide behind her…

This just in from CNN…

Janet Napolitano was arrested today in Washington D.C. for impersonating a small crowd. D.C. police arrested the director of Homeland Security as she strolled down Pennsylvania Avenue. When Napolitano couldn’t produce a permit to gather for her event, police took her into custody immediately. A tow truck was called in and she was hauled away.

I would like to know how many school shooting victims were found under desks. It seems to me that most shooting accounts tell of the gunmen shooting under desks. So, before I would tell people to do that as a FIRST line of defense, I would want to know those numbers. I could be wrong, but if I were a shooter, I think I would be able to see a person under a desk, and they would not be moving which would probably make them an easier target.

The comments at the Daily Mail’s web site are great.

- But don’t run once you have the scissors!
- Oh Brother! Mr. Napolitano has gone off his nut.
- Time and again spitballs have proven themselves disarming.
- Maybe we can arm the Secret Service surrounding Pres Obama with SCISSORS instead of guns.
- Well I’m blown…all those guns and rounds of ammo I’ve bought when all I needed was a pair of scissors…

Don’t forget the assault Legos, assault fingers, and paper guns!

I didn’t want to read the article., so someone tell me: why scissors? Why not a letter opener?

most letter openers are dull in comparison? Few people own much less use letter openers anymore? The one we have at the hospital is plastic. And most of the time someone from the mail room has already opened the envelope for us, so what do we need it for? Oh! I know! Maybe I could shove it in the barrel of the gun pointed at me and then when the shooter pulls the trigger, the gun will blow up in the shooters face without causing any real harm to anyone just like in the cartoons! NO?

Letter openers look too much like knives, the regime’s next target.

I was thinking why not a rock or paper?

Scissors are far more tactical and assaulty looking.

Only if you have the black teflon coated ones.

I wonder if my black, nasty looking EMT scissors are illegal now? Next Feinstein will ban scissors….

Very much so, In fact if I ran through a crowd with them, I could be arrested for mass scissoring….

Was the production of this a result of one of obama’s ‘bold and historic’ executive orders? The scissors thing… are they really that stupid? Hiding under a desk… are we back in the cold war?

Did you notice all the advice they gave was decent for those who have their own office and can barricade a door with heavy furniture. How does this advice help a classroom filled with children that don’t see it coming? How does this advice help the people who went to see Gabrielle Giffords speak? How does this advice help anyone shopping in a crowded mall when a stampede breaks out if someone starts shooting? How does this advice help those in a dark movie theater? Even their idiotic advice is self serving. They basically made a video of what they should do if someone gets passed the armed security they’re all protected by.

Hey, if the desk will protect you from a nuclear blast and fallout, then it should work for a puny, little gun!

Seriously. The first thing I thought. THis will be about as effective as duck and cover for a nuclear bomb.

This entire video looks like something created for late night comics. Do you really need to tell people to hide, try to escape, don’t let the shooter see you? But if he does, jump him with a pair of worthless scissors, like his bullet wouldn’t get to you before you got out from under your desk? Seriously.
