    That one guy in the corner of the office with the twitchy eye that has fortified his desk with cubical wars equipment scoffs in the face of this video.

    Ok who made this satire? It's very comedic. Maybe some people will get some use out of it though, then they can become a leader... of their herd.

    Thank you, I needed a good laugh. DHS will tell you to arm yourselves with scissors and knitting needles, while scooping up all those nasty 'personal defense weapons' for themselves....what a bunch of asshats

    Baffles me that on a military installation, if an active shooter incident occurs, we all have to hide and wait until the GGs show-up.

    Rumor has that the secret service is giving up their guns and are now carrying sissors.

    We have to go through the stupid active shooter training every year. Why? Because it would be a felony to have firearm at work. Really. That was the only solution they can come up with. Active shootet training. Here's a thought, let responsible folks carry a gun on base. Think about it. How stupid does this sound? Shooter comes on base with a gun and just shoots folks for almost ever. Fort Hood. It's a military base. A high percentage of the civilian working on my base are retired military. We can't screen folks with securiy clearences and find a few sound enough to carry a concealed firearm.

    If I don't have a firearm (which is never, unless otherwise required by law....which is pretty much never), I will ALWAYS at least have a knife. Scissors, seriously?

    you didn't get the memo? knives are EVIL, just like guns. Can't have people running around with knives. /sarcasm off. scissors would be my choice IF I had no other option.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
