This is a good one. Just think, shooting starts. Campus officer has to
go and get the rifle out of the safe (hope he has the combination or
key). Then, being in close quarters (inside the building), he is to seek
out and destroy the shooter. Hope he doesn't miss. Those bullets will go
through walls like they were butter.

Another thought. In all other cases, the officers congregate outside
until there is sufficient strength to assure "office safety". What of
this "lone officer", with a rifle, who might be visible from outside?
Could he be mistaken as the shooter?

Have we gone insane in this country?

Special Forces and Law Enforcement use semi-automatic weapons??


"The semi-automatic weapons are used by both law enforcement and U.S.
Special Forces."

Fontana schools get 14 Colt 6940 rifles

A California school board is being criticized following reports that it
approved the purchase of 14 high-caliber rifles to be issued to school
police officers responding to campus shootings.

KTLA-TV reported on Wednesday
<http://ktla.com/2013/01/23/fontana-school-police-buy-high-caliber-rifle
s/#axzz2IoG9NKhX>  that the Fontana Unified School District bought 14
Colt 6940 rifles at $1,000 apiece to store on campuses around the
district. The semi-automatic weapons are used by both law enforcement
and U.S. Special Forces.

The purchase was approved by district Superintendent Cali Olsen-Binks
last October. According to the Fontana Herald News,
<http://www.fontanaheraldnews.com/articles/2013/01/22/news/doc50fda76aeb
ebe605545913.txt>  school officers received the weapons last month and
received 40 hours of training over the winter break to learn how to use
them.

Officials said the rifles will be stored in a safe on their respective
campuses and will only be used to respond to attacks like the one on
Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut last month.

"We know that criminals wear bullet proof vests," School Police Chief
Billy Green told the newspaper. "Our guns are not able to penetrate
these vests from long distance, so we need shoulder weapons to defend
innocent people. This is a decision I made and I have no regrets."

But while local authorities supported Olsen-Binks' decision, other
school officials expressed concern and suggested they were misled.

"They did have meetings," board member Sophia Green told KCAL-TV.

anyone say), 'Semi-automatic guns will be bought,' 'We have
semi-automatic guns,' or 'Semi-automatic guns are being stored on school
property.'"

Child development specialist Anna Conklin told the station that the
district shuttered a school counseling program two years ago, and said
the use of district funds on increased firepower ignored the question of
addressing students' mental health.

"Children aren't born with a gun in their hand and vengeance in their
mind," she said. "They aren't necessarily going to grow into being a
killer. We, as a society, need to address why children are growing up to
commit these acts as teens and adults. I don't see how adding more
weapons on a campus is addressing that."
