NAACP Wants Newly Authorized AR-15 Rifles Straight Outta Compton Schools

The Compton chapter of the NAACP is demanding that the Compton Unified School District rescind a new policy allowing campus police officers to carry AR-15 rifles while patrolling school grounds.

Compton’s school board approved the new policy last month, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Campus cops who carry the semi-automatic weapons must receive special training first. Also, “carry” is a very strong word. School district officials have indicated the officers will actually keep the aggressive-looking rifles in the trunks of their patrol cars until some event arises in which the guns are needed.

Nevertheless, the NAACP strongly opposes the policy.

“Compton schools are not located in Beirut, Gaza, or Kabul. They are located in the heart of a hardworking, proud community in Los Angeles County,” local NAACP president Paulette Simpson-Gipson told the Times. “We won’t be satisfied until this decision is abrogated.”
