#3 I kinda makes me wonder why a democratic bastion school district in Calif(p)ornia would think to have armed police guards at a school? What are they thinking? Don't they understand you protect your children with GUN FREE ZONE signs?

Another thing, they aren't "war zone" weapons. They do not have the select fire option.

Another another thing, I bet the side arms they carry are "war zone" compatible.

#4 Is Fontana some sort of ritzy outskirt or something?

#5 Brer, did you not see the grenade launcher swivel sling attachment point? Its the one next to the spear thrower swivel attachment notch point and the photon beam auto destruct emitter.

#6 Fontana is a manufacturing/industrial lowbrow area - site of the former Kaiser Steel/Armaments Plant and the Fontana racetrack.

#7 Thank you. It was reading to me a bit like an affluent neighborhood waving their hands about. Now, the purchases were made back in July. Fireproof safe. Practice. Sounds like a flagship to me, deep in SoCo. But of course officers with sidearms couldn't stop that little ole two-person robbery back in the day either.

#8  Review of the Colt LE6940 rifle. So what makes this high-powered? What makes it an assault rifle? It appears to be a semi-automatic rifle and not fully automatic.

#9 Notice that when the media talks about police or military uses they are "semi-automatic rifles", when ordinary citizens have them they are "assault rifles".
A carefully nuanced phrase that a commenter on the article caught.
