Question: Why does the U.S. Dept of Education Need Remington Rifles?

I found this info on Friday night....does anybody know why this government agency would need 27 rifles?  Glenn Beck just mentioned this too...

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 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. As such, OIG operates with full statutory law enforcement authority, which includes conducting search warrants, making arrests, and carrying firearms. The acquisition of these firearms is necessary to replace older and mechanically malfunctioning firearms, and in compliance with Federal procurement requirements. For more information on OIG’s law enforcement authority, please visit our Web site at: The information is available on the front page of our site.

Thank you again for your inquiry.

  1. Catherine,

    The answer is actually quite simple, as it is the same reason the IRS has aquired them, FOR RAIDS!!!! You will notice that the order also mentions body armor and tactical combat training, why would the Department of Education nbeed these either? FOR RAIDS!!!! The real question everyone should be asking is why is this agency preparing to begin raiding homes?
