Earlier this year, a proposal was brought before the Gainesville, GA school district.
The proposal, originally brought up by law enforcement, would see an AR-15, specifically a Colt 6920 (good choice) placed in a safe in each school within the district. The rifle would be accessible only to the school’s resource officer.
The proposal was originally brought up following an analysis of the schools in the area. What was found was that due to the way many of the school’s were laid out, there were many long, open hallways, which would make it hard for law enforcement officers to engage a suspect using only a their standard issued sidearm.
