School District Buys 14 AR-15 Assault Rifles To Keep On Campuses For Protection
#1
Quote:FONTANA (CBSLA.com) — The Fontana Unified School District Police Department purchased 14 AR-15 assault weapons to protect students in response to recent shootings across the country, but some school leaders and citizens think it’s a step in the wrong direction.

FUSD Superintendent Cali Olsen-Binks approved the acquisition of the rifles, which are being stored on campuses in locked safes for responding police officers in the event of an attack.

Fontana Police Chief Rodney Jones and Mayor Acquanetta Warren supported Olsen-Binks’ decision.

“It’s unfortunate that we have to have that, but it’s the best message we can send to anybody that thinks to harm our children,” said Jones. “The message we’re sending is…not here, not now, we’re prepared for you. And if you seek to harm our children, we will neutralize that threat and you will most likely be killed.”

Warren said, “Everyone wants children safe. At this time, we as a community, we have to come together and find other ways. But in the interim, our police officers need to be equipped.”

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

While I personally think it is a step in the right direction, most police have ARs in their vehicles. If not, there are likely a couple officers on each shift with one...

I think the money would have been better served to hire and train a professional, armed security guard.

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Granted, it isn't allowing everyone to carry, but I think this is better than not buying them. This also shows the hypocrisy. If firearms turn people into evil murders or are innately harmful to people or children, then why did they buy them and put them in a school? By their actions, they just showed the truth of the situation: an armed society is a polite and armed society.
