The firearm that has been so hated by the left and anti-gun activists will now be used to guard Utah schools.
According to the Washington Times, the Granite School District Police Department has issued several AR-15s to its officers to protect the students and staff in the event of an active shooter or other scenario that would otherwise leave the students defenseless.
In addition to the AR-15s these schools will be implementing high-tech camera technology that will feed directly to the police dispatch facility.
At least some school are beginning to understand that the NRA was actually right when they said it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun.
Police Chief Randy Johnson said the weapons would aid with “rapid response” emergency situations, NBC reported. He added to KSL, a local NBC affiliate: “If we don’t get in and stop the shooter, more people are going to die.”
“Most shootings will be over very quickly and so if we arrive on the scene and we can hear gunshots, the officers are now being trained to go to the sound of the gunfire and stop the threat that is taking place,” Mr. Johnson said in a statement to The Salt Lake Tribune. “We know that we don’t have a lot of time to save people’s lives.”
But wait. I thought AR-15s were “assault weapons”. At least in Connecticut and other ban-happy states that love to infringe on 2nd amendment rights these rifles have been branded with the term “assault”. Nevermind that AR stands for ArmaLite and NOT for Assault Rifle, if these guns are only used for nefarious purposes then why do police get to use them? Can anybody say “double standard”?
And I doubt these officers that will be protecting these schools will have to use the NY SAFE Act compliant AR-15s that have been all the buzz lately, especially since the rounds would be limited to only 7.
