DHS Video: If Caught In A Gun Fight Grab Some Scissors

In case you missed this today, the Department of Homeland Security has a new video instructing the masses on what to do in the event we find ourselves up against a crazed gunman. Of course, in this video there are no citizens with concealed carry permits to pull their own guns on the bad guys. For pretty much three minutes the video depicts helpless victims climbing under desks and tables, or running away with their hands up in the air. The video also tells people to call 911, but then says not to use phones because they can give away your hiding place. It’s pretty ridiculous, but the dumbest part comes at about the 1:50 mark. The narrator says that if you have no place to take cover or hide and you’re stuck out in the open to grab something and try “to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available.” The camera then pans to a hand rummaging through a desk drawer and then pulling out a pair of scissors, as if the shooter wouldn’t gun down the victim rummaging through a drawer.

I wonder if they got the idea for this video from Obama’s old comment about bringing a knife to a gun fight.

Watch this absurd video your tax dollars paid for.
