And the Governmnet Wants to Disarm You?

Monday, March 29, 2010

This story has been slightly under the radar. The Department of No Education is buying shotguns for its police force.

According to documentation, the Department of Education’s office of Inspector General ordered for delivery – probably this week sometime – 27 Remington 870 12-gauge shotguns with 14 inch barrels for officials in just two offices.

Education Department spokeswoman Catherine Grant explained the office is a “law enforcement agency.”

“The Office of Inspector General is the law enforcement arm of the U.S. Department of Education and is responsible for the detection of waste, fraud, abuse, and other criminal activity involving federal education funds, programs, and operations,” Grant said.

As such, its agents have full law enforcement authority, she said.

Here’s the government’s solicitation. The Washington Post barely covered the story.

Meanwhile, here’s what happens when you give guns to underskilled, incompetent, federal employees who don’t have the wherewithal to get good jobs in the private sector. They lose their guns in public places.

    Sounds like these guys lost their marbles before they lost their guns. Don’t get the reason for the Dept of Education needing to buy guns….unless they are worried that some day the kids will all wake up in math class en masse and do the numbers on how all this debt hangs over each of their heads robbing them of their future. If the Inspector General’s office is responsible for waste and fraud, maybe they will bring down the entire ersatz educational system, starting with the Safe School czar.

    There could be a positive out of this? “Underskilled, incompetent, federal employees” might end up shooting themselves? Sure clean up on the shallow end of the gene pool…

    14-inch barrels? Aren’t those illegal to own? Oh, wait. Nevermind.
