  1. FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — The high-powered semiautomatic riflesrecently shipped to school police in this Southern California city look like they belong on a battlefield rather than in a high school, but officials here say the weapons could help stop a massacre like the one that claimed the lives of 26 students and educators in Connecticut just weeks ago.

    Fontana Unified School District police purchased 14 of the Colt LE6940 rifles last fall, and they were delivered the first week of December — a week before the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Over the holiday break, the district's 14 school police officers received 40 hours of training on the rifles. Officers check them out for each shift from a fireproof safe in the police force's main office.

    Isn't it rather ironic that dianne feinsteins home state is arming school police with the very weapons she wants TO BAN?????

    A-typical looney left bullshit.......unreal!:flag:
  3. Who knew what and when?

    Did they have advanced notice of the impending ban for them to order and have them on site before the ban was proposed to legislators.
    This just goes to prove that there are elected officials that do have common sense and are willing to stand up for what they believe. Even if it means going against the current public opinion that has been propogandized by the main street media.
