School Cops To Give Up Grenade Launchers

Via WiscoDave

Confiscated M16 rifles with 40mm grenade launchers

A Los Angeles school district says it will return three grenade launchers it received under a federal programme that hands down surplus military gear to local law enforcement.

LA Unified said in a statement that the 40mm arms were not "essential life-saving items" for the city's school police.

"We ... would not utilize this weapon within a school environment," it conceded. (Naw, you don't say.....)

  1. Yeah, unless you're being fired on by a M2 or RPG. Then you'd be glad you have it.

  3. I just read an article today saying that many schools had received m16's grenade launchers, mraps and other vehicles. What does a school district need with ANY of that? No district I know of has a police department or a SWAT division. So what the hell are they ding with any of that stuff. And how do they qualify for these weapons?

  4. Brock, I sometimes wonder if they plan on using the government indoctrination centers as holding areas for, shall we say, less than compliant individuals? I mean, they all look like prisons when I drive by them, convicts, I mean, students in the yards surrounded by big fences. Makes me glad we homeschool.

  5. Ominously, tinfoil-hat speaking... If you separate children from parents, say in a govt mandated setting like public school.... you could pretty much do anything.

  6. Not exactly true. The 40mm also comes in colored smoke, illum, and rubber pellet shotgun rounds. All might be very useful in controlling someone else's children.

    I doubt if the despicable little commies in our government would bat an eye if they thought it necessary.

  8. Tear gas. Remember the hedp's point blank within arming range can punch a hole in 4in or armor plate. I have always been a fan of the M-79 never hit well with the M-203 always felt it was overrated.
