Colorado School Arming Security Workers With Rifles

Ten Bushmaster rifles purchased for security staff at Douglas County School.


Richard Payne, director of security for Douglas County School District, wants his staff to have the same tools as law enforcement, in the event of a shooting or other violent incident.  

Ten semiautomatic rifles have been purchased, at $12,000 each, and will be supplied to the school’s security staff once they have completed the 20-hour training course – the same training that police officers take.

Payne told the Denver Post that the guns would be locked in patrol cars, and NOT stored inside the school building.
