Homeland Security: In an Emergency; Grab Your Scissors

Continuing the idea that only the government can protect you the Department of Homeland Security has released this video of options if you are in a dangerous situation. Key in the DHS plan is to take cover and hide.  But…

“If you are caught out in the open and cannot conceal yourself or take cover, you might consider trying to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available,” says the narrator, as the video shows an office worker grabbing a pair of scissors out of her drawer.

One has to wonder if teaching actual self defense tactics might be a better plan. Or maybe an offer to put a baseball bat at every cubicle.
