JSO replacing assault rifle triggers

Two incidents have caused the office to make this move. In one incident at a shooting range, the trigger was sluggish initially, then it fired multiple rounds. In the second incident, the gun discharged after he touched it. Officers say it doesn't mean they don't have high-powered weapons. The officers have a couple brands, so they're only systemically recalling the brand they believe has a faulty discharge.
