"Running with scissors" is one of these really stupid things that your mom told you to not do. If a person is described as "runs with scissors", that means that they are intentionally stupid and either dangerous or suicidal.

The word 'scissors' is a plural noun which can be either singular or plural in usage. So, we can use (one pair of) scissors to cut something, and we might keep (several pairs of) scissors for different uses. We can have scissors, or a pair of scissors, or many scissors. 'Scissor' is a singular verb, meaning to cut with, or as if with, scissors, or - frequently in sporting reference - to use a movement similar to that of scissors: 'They swim with a scissor movement of the legs.' 'The wrestlers will demonstrate the scissor hold.' 'Scissor' can also refer to scissors: 'Take these to the knife and scissor sharpener, they're getting blunt.' 'My aunt has an antique scissor holder which she still uses when she's sewing.'

No, the word 'scissor' is a verb, meaning to cut with scissors, to move the legs back and forth in a way resembling the action of scissors.The noun form is 'scissors', a plural noun with no singular form. The noun 'scissors' is a binary noun, a word for something made up of two parts that form the whole (scissors, pants, glasses, etc.). Units of binary nouns are expressed by nouns called a 'noun counter', for example, a pair of scissors or two pairs of scissors.

Words like scissors or pants are examples of words with a plural form but a singular meaning. The verbs that go with them agree with their plural form, not with the meaning (which is singular): These scissors need sharpening. (not "This scissors needs sharpening.") These pants go well with my yellow blouse. (not "This pants goes well with my yellow blouse.") But this is an aspect of English which is slowly changing. These days you will often hear 'This scissors needs sharpening' - and sometimes even see it written. A teacher will still mark it wrong though.
