    Default Scissors?? Really

    Homeland Security has a video on how to survive shootings in the work place.
    They apparently advise to use scissors to defend yourself
    How many of us would feel comfortable taking on an armed gunman with scissors?

    I guess if we let em take our guns away that may be our only option

    Is this for real ... Homeland Security advising people to use scissors against someone with a gun?
    Hmm, I don't recall that working at the post office where they have plenty of scissors.
