Yeah, read "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross.

Make a list. Become Henry Bowman when the time comes.

Very simple. They need them to keep the ‘students’ in line at the re-education camps.

They’re buying them so they can melt them down and make a swing set.

There was a story about the IRS buying up a bunch of shotguns about 2 or 3 months ago. But the Dept of Education? What the hell is going on?

I actually made a joke here on FR several years ago about how we’ll know America is doomed when the US Dept of Education finally has it’s own tactical S.W.A.T. team.

Pls post a follow up. Its hard to imagine what they’d need 27 for...or even 1. Isn’t this the same anti-gun crowd who convulses at the mere mention of FAs and would put kids out of school for even mentioning them???

How many 14” barrel entry shotguns do they have already?

Missed that...so what powers does the Dept. of Ed have that they’d need FAs? To my understanding they have no police powers.

But there’s a ban on firearms in the city of Chicago, don’t you remember?

So how can this be?

Can't they just use imaginary shotguns? Apparently, they are considered the same as a real one by certain "educators".

Every fiefdom needs its own army. I was always amazed at the number of police entities in DC. Some have very broad areas of interest like Postal and AMTRAK.

I'm baffled, too. The 870 is a great shotgun, but I wouldn't want to go into combat with one unless it was all I could get my hands on. It probably is the least expensive model though at $357.99.

The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power

Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world ...

The first step in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come is to teach men to shoot! -Theodore Roosevelt

I did speak with the special agent in charge of the Chicago Office of the Dept of Ed Inspector General office. The work of the IG office includes investigations into fraud and misuse of Dept. of Ed funds. This takes them into environments where they must deal with the criminal element including some bad actors who are armed. Like many others here, I had a hard time connecting the dots between shotguns and the Dept. of Ed. but it is easier to understand in the context of a mandate to investigate criminal fraud.
