Gun Company Donates AR-15s To School Cops In North Dakota

One of the nation’s largest gun suppliers has donated nine semi-automatic AR-15 rifles to school resources officers in Bismarck, North Dakota, helping police in the state’s capital fulfill a request for additional firepower to protect students.

In August, the Bismarck Police Department submitted a budget proposal that included nearly $26,000 to purchase new rifles, gun safes, bulletproof vests and medical kits to treat gunshot wounds. The cost was supposed to be split evenly between the school district and police department, but the county said it wouldn’t pay for the AR-15s themselves, according to The Bismarck Tribune.

Iowa-based Brownells offered its support late last month. The rifles, which are supposed to be stored in locked safes at the schools, have already been delivered to the department, the Tribune reported.

There are six school resource officers with the Bismarck Police Department. Although they had previously been equipped with handguns, officials began discussing the idea of providing them with higher-powered weaponry in the wake of the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida. A lieutenant with the department noted in August that rifles might be necessary if officers had to neutralize a threat at longer range. Some county leaders also backed the request for new firearms.

Along with the nine AR-15s, Brownells also donated thousands of dollars worth of gun parts and accessories, all for a total value of $8,650, the company told the Des Moines Register. Brownells has given away products to law enforcement in the past, a company spokesman told the Tribune.

Arming good people with guns and gun training is an important aspect in eliminating mass shooters in my opinion. Always been a huge advocate of it, and i'm glad to see its happening somewhere.

Personally, as big a fan as I am of the ar15, I would prefer a concealed sig, than a ar locked in a closet.

Optimal thing would have them carry a standard service revolver at all times. If there is a heightened alert status, they would patrol with the big guns either strapped on their backs or even front carry like the dudes at the Pentagon do.

They would have a couple of people in an internal office monitoring screens and radios. If crap hits the fan, they push a panic button (police alerted), they grab the big guns, backup their patrollers, and distribute the big guns to the regular patrollers. They do what they have to do to stop the threat and protect/evacuate the innocent. Cops arrive, they let them do their job and they assist (scenarios are pre-planned and executed).
