  2. ^ Shear nonsense.
    Sorry, but I didn’t want to use that pun in the body of the post.
    (What? Yeah, but I did want to use it.)

  3. Even tho you’re not allowed to do that to that picture — I LOL’d you. Looks like they made a quick trip to take a proof picture.

  7. Scissors: the weapon of choice for gun grabbers unhappy with the Constitution.

  8. Then again, I could be wrong about this.
    After all, one of America’s most famous law-enforcement icons favored solving problems with scissors.

  9. The only scissors most schools and offices allow nowadays are these types of child safety scissors, and you can’t even hardly bruise someone with such an instrument, let alone cut someone.

  11. So, she suggests you bring a pair of scissors…… Hell, don’t even bring them to my pocket knife fight. Dummies.

  12. Ironically, if people were to confront, aggressively, a mad shooter with whatever weapons they could scrounge, the overall death toll would probably be lower – though the survival rate for the “first responder” may not be great.

    So there is a point to the otherwise risible “scissor strategy,” and in a way it is refreshing to see the authorities admit that passive submission is an EFFING HORRIBLE response, even though they’re doing it for an underhanded reason (supporting victim disarmament policies).

  13. What are we supposed to do when confronted by an armed attacker on an airliner?

  14. Real tactical scissors come with a bit that fits into the bayonet lug on your personal defense weapon.

    Oh, indeed!
    In practical terms, a couple brave souls with the will to fight can probably turn a potential mass killing into a singleton, even unarmed. Not many civilians with that mindset, though.

    I was remiss in not including that up top.
    Hmm … might not be too late.
    Hold on.
    Okay, done!

  17. Scissors????

    She’s saving the diagonal wire cutters for herself.

  18. You ‘Arm’ yourself with scissors” says a …erm, woman surrounded by 24-hour professional armed guards.

    So she’s saying there will be more of these “mass shootings”? [well, duh - but she's implying an increasing rate]

    Which means they know that disarming Law-Abiding citizens won’t fix a dang thing.

    I find myself jaw-droppingly gobsmacked at this “advice” from my .gov.

    Sure, I’ll run at a California coyote skreeching like a deranged baboon just to get ‘em out of the yard. [their look of disbelief and 'this is so worng!' is hilarious]

    Or even a Mountain Lion [lone hunters are very, very careful]

    But a pack of wolves? or a bear?!? not bloody likely. I’d want serious armament for that. [if we actually had such 'round here]

    This denial of Reality and Rights is approaching …. waiddaminnit:

    Alinksy Tactic Suggestion: It is a Human Right to Protect Oneself and One’s Family

    How’s that for a sudden thought?
