New DHS Video: Attack Gunman With Office Supplies

The Department of Homeland Security released this video showing your options during an "active shooter" situation.

Among the recommendations:

1.) Hide! (Duh!)

2.) Attack with scissors or paperclips - whatever is available around the office. Everyone knows scissors will beat anything except rocks.

3.) Call 911 and give a clear description of the shooter's weapons. It will help the gun-control agenda to know which type of weapon frightened you.

4.) When officers arrive, avoid pointing. They might mistake your hand for a gun.

You can be a victim or a potential victim! Remember, the choice is yours!

1 Paper! Remember paper cuts will hurt someone, a lot.

2 DMartyr, go to your room. I am rolling on the floor, waiting for my case of .40 SW to arrive for my tactical course.

3 Having just acknowledged that scissors are weapons i suppose they must now be banned from all government offices.

4 It works. I once stopped a gaggle of barbarians with nothing but a three hole punch and a half stack of post it notes.

5 White Out works in some cases, fer sure. No, I will have my trusty G. U. N., thank you very much. I don't want close enough to stab with a weapon like dull scissors.

6 This almost ranks up there with "Duck and cover". It would have been better showing a guy pulling a shotgun or a sword out of a closet and going after the shooter.

11 British guy here, all I heard was 'duck and cover' playing in the background.
We know gun bans do not work, granted the gun crime rate fell the year after the dunblane massacre, but it rose consistently for 9 years after that.

12 All you critics should be ashamed. Don't you know a paper clip shot from a rubber band can put your eye out! Now that's what I call an assault weapon. Where's that sarc button?

13 Department of Hopeless Stupidity has advice? My advice is to stay out of my way.
