Douglas County schools to issue semiautomatic rifles to security staff

“The Douglas County School District plans to arm its security staff with 10 semiautomatic rifles designed to provide a high-powered defense in the event of a shooting or other violent incident.

“Ken Trump, a national school security consultant in Cleveland, said he hadn't heard of school security workers equipped with such high-powered weaponry.

“ ‘One accident in close quarters with these things could be devastating, not only to predators but to the students themselves,’ Montgomery said. ‘I would make sure the decision is supported politically and socially.’ “
