Fontana, Calif.,-It seems that school safety is on the minds of several towns looking for the best way to protect the children at school. In the City of Fontana, they just took delivery of fourteen semiautomatic rifles purchased at a cost of $1,000 each. The rifles are stored in locked safes on campuses to be used if there is an attack.
The school district police purchased the rifles last Fall before the news of the Connecticut school massacre as part of a controversial safety program.
KESQ.com reports,”Fontana City Police Chief Rodney Jones tells KCBS-TV that the high-powered weapons are the best message to send to anybody thinking about harming children.”
Critics are complaining about the use of $14,000 for this program. Story link
