Ga. school district considers assault rifles
The Associated Press
The Colt 6920 M4 carbine rifles - one for each school - would be locked in the vehicles of school resource officers when the schools aren't in session.
Details of the plan by Gainesville City Schools were discussed Monday, as parents and teachers met with police.
The Times of Gainesville (http://bit.ly/18mja78 ) reports the safes would be accessible by fingerprint recognition, and only the school's resource officer would have access to the rifle.
Gainesville police approached the schools about the idea in April after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut.
The plan still needs approval by the school board.
