Feedback at 5:00: What Do You Think About School Campus Police Carrying Rifles?

Posted: Updated:

 

Thursday's Feedback at 5:00:

A school system in northern Georgia is considering allowing campus police officers carry rifles.

The semi-automatic weapons would be stored in Gainsville City Schools and used in case of emergency.

Currently, officers only carry pistols.

The rifles have two times the ammunition, fire three times farther, and are more accurate.

School officers are hoping to stay "a step ahead" in an emergency situation.

What do you think of the proposal? Would you support a similar one in your community?
