Dept of Education buys shotguns


The Dept of Education is buying 27 Remington Brand Model 870 police 12-gauge shotguns. Why?

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.

So, the Dept of Education has a law enforcement division, and they carry weapons, and they investigate fraud cases. And there are only 27 of them? Maybe?

There’s a mystery novel in there somewhere.
