Why is the U. S. Department of Education buying 27 shotguns? To shoot any student caught reading a Glenn Beck book or listening to Rush Limbaugh or accessing the Drudge Report? LOL
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) shotguns.
These shotguns 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. [Source]
From the information above, we know that the 27 new shotguns will join an already existing cache (“inventory”) of other shotguns! How many shotguns does the Dept of Ed has in total? What other weaponry is in the Dept’s arsenal? Most importantly, why does the Dept of Education have this “inventory” in the first place?
I hope some enterprising journalist look into this!
