Colorado school district to equip security workers with semiautomatic rifles

I’ve always said that if you think you need a gun, don’t carry a pistol, get a rifle.  This school district is taking that seriously!

In the latest development surrounding the debate over school safety, Douglas County School District in Colorado has elected to arm its security staff with semiautomatic rifles in a bid to deter and defend against a school attack or other violent incident.

  1. Always thought this was a smart plan. For instance, let’s say the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary had had an AR 15, even locked up behind her in her office, when she attempted to deal with the killer – could have been a very very different outcome. She had little time to interact with him on that horrible day but as I understand the accounts it sounded as if there would have been time for her to realize what was going on in the outer office as she was sitting in her office, get a rifle from it’s secured location, and ended the threat there in the front office before he continued on into the school after killing front office staff.
