Guns out! Scissors in!
Arizonans know committed liberal Janet Napolitano all too well. Before she was appointed by Barack Obama as Chieftain of the Department of Homeland Security, she was appointed U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona by Bill Clinton. With the assistance of name ID, Napolitano was then elected Attorney General, and finally Governor — by a slim 46% – 45% of the vote. It was a post the ambitious hobber and nobber abandoned mid-term in favor of her current Cabinet level position.
Now, the woman who warned us that “Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to radicalized right-wing extremists,” and refuses to call terrorism by its rightful name, is giving advice on the best method of staying safe during “active shooter situations.”
Her advice comes via an absurd video, reminiscent of the Federal Civil Defense Administration’s Duck and Cover film shown to 1950’s school children at the height of the Cold War. It gave advice on protecting themselves in the event of an atomic bomb explosion.
Napolitano’s previous advice is found in the “Run, Hide Fight” video that includes this bit of wisdom: “Sometimes bad people do bad things.”
This most recent video “Options for Consideration / Active Shooter” suggests choosing either cover or concealment, including hiding and knowing “help is on the way.” As a last resort, improvising weapons is suggested. The video actually shows a hand removing a pair of scissors from a desk drawer (1:52 seconds). This is in response to a crazed killer with a gun.
Feel better? Bet you’d feel even safer if there was an actual means of defending yourself. Scissors might not be up to the task.
