Is that for loan collection? or failure to toe the PC line?
What? They are going to Educate or (Indoctrinate) children at Gunpoint?? Great........
Didn’t the IRS do the same thing last month???
I’m sure it must be obvious, but I don’t get it...why does the Dept. of Ed. need shotguns? In fact, why do we need a Dept. of Ed.?
Thats just going to pi$$ off the other several million gun carriers.
What do they expect to be able to do with so few guns. Oh.... maybe when Zerocare falls short they are going to commit mass suicide. hmmmmmmmm
The 16” minimum barrel length is for us peasants.....
Sounds like someone is considering making a MONUMENTAL mistake.
14 in. LOP refers to “Length of Pull”. In shotgunning, this refers to the measured distance between the inside of the shooter’s elbow and the first joint of the trigger finger. This is in effect the distance between the trigger and the butt of the shotgun. In trapshooting, this is adjustable on some shotguns by adjusting screws, or adding a recoil pad. 14 in. is a general figure for arsenal-grade weapons and means (generally) that any trained shooter can bring this weapon on target with a high degree of accuracy.The Remington 870 is an excellent choice for a defensive shotgun.
Of course, why the Dept. of Education needs combat grade shotguns is another matter entirely.
Well, they can’t teach kids to read or write very well but they have selecting a good model!
The 16 minimum barrel length is for us peasants.....
Wrong! 16 inches for rifles, 18 inches for shotguns.
To leavenworth with you!
Isn't that the "krelbow"?
Or they’ll use them to commit sewercide because of the impending general default caused by employed government waste. They should purchases Claymores, too, although they might encounter some difficulty in deciding how to orient those (”FRONT TOWARD ENEMY”). ;-)
Seems pretty clear to me.
Maybe they intend to do the right thing by offing themselves, for NCLB.
Combat training? I don't remember that course in high school. Hmm, college did have a "rifle marksmanship" course which was fun...
Seriously, why do ED personnel need combat training?
