Why Would the Department of Education Need Shotguns?

Seriously. What? I’m wracking my brain trying to think up reasons. Bizarre. Thanks to Weasel Zippers, via Instapundit for the oddity of the day.

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) intends to purchase twenty-seven (27) REMINGTON BRAND MODEL 870 POLICE 12/14P MOD GRWC XS4 KXCS SF. RAMAC #24587 GAUGE: 12 BARREL: 14″ – PARKERIZED CHOKE: MODIFIED SIGHTS: GHOST RING REAR WILSON COMBAT; FRONT – XS CONTOUR BEAD SIGHT STOCK: KNOXX REDUCE RECOIL ADJUSTABLE STOCK FORE-END: SPEEDFEED SPORT-SOLID – 14″ LOP are designated as the only shotguns authorized for ED based on compatibility with ED existing shotgun inventory, certified armor and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts.
The required date of delivery is March 22, 2010.

    Questions surround feds’ raid of Stockton home

    Money quote: “OIG is a semi-independent branch of the education department that executes warrants for criminal offenses such as student aid fraud, embezzlement of federal aid and bribery, according to Hamilton. The agency serves 30 to 35 search warrants a year”

    However, earlier in the article we are reassured that it wasn’t about simple default. But fraud now, that deserves an armed entry early in the morning and terrorizing the people, (not the person accused-not that it matters.)

    So, maybe the ED does think it needs weapons.
