    French school condemned after students try out unloaded assault rifles

    'France’s defence ministry has said it will take disciplinary action over a primary school “meet-the-army” workshop at which pupils aged 10 and under took part in an exercise with unloaded assault rifles.'

    (Guardian.com, 16th October 2015.)

    A clear mistake for which all involved should be punished. What idiot would put snipers in hi-vis vests?

    Maybe it's in case one of the kids ran off with a gun.

    In my experience children don't have natural camouflage, even if they are French.

    The hi-vis is for protection, its used to give the Americans a target to aim at. Since everyone knows if you are an American target you are quite safe its the person next to you who should be worried, ;)
