Fontana, Calif., school police get high-powered rifles

FONTANA, Calif. — The school police force in this Southern California city has acquired 14 high-powered semiautomatic rifles for officers to bring to campuses.

Fontana Unified School District police purchased 14 of the Colt LE6940 rifles last fall, and they were delivered in early December, a week before a gunman killed 26 students and educators at a Connecticut elementary school.
