Colorado School District Does THIS To Defend Its Students

A Colorado school district is bringing out the big guns to defend its 67,000 students.

According to The Denver Post, the Douglas County School District on the south side of the Denver metro area is purchasing 10 Bushmaster semiautomatic rifles to give its security officers more firepower in stropping potential school shooters.

"We want to make sure they have the same tools as law enforcement," security director Richard Payne said, adding that district's security officers will also undergo additional weapons training.

The rifles, however, will not be stored inside the schools themselves but rather be locked in the security officers' patrol cars.

Douglas County borders Jefferson County, the site of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre when two armed students murdered 12 students and a teacher and injured 21 more after a failed bombing attempt that could have killed or injured hundreds.

What do you think about this? Does it go far enough?
