Bismarck, ND – A company out of Iowa is donating AR-15s to Bismarck school resource officers.

Last month, KX News was the first to tell you about a plan to buy AR-15s, gun safes and other gear to keep in some Bismarck schools. Earlier this week, the city approved more than $25,000 in spending for the plan. However, that won’t be needed anymore.Brownells, a gun distributor out of Iowa, saw the news and decided to donate 9 AR-15s to the police department.

We certainly think that schools should have increased security, so if that is something we can do to help, then we are happy to do it,” Brownells Director of Communications Ryan Repp said.

We wanted to know what the Bismarck Police Department will do with the money it will save because of this. So we reached out, but have not heard back.
