Federal and state law across the American landscape (and certainly here in Washington State) almost uniformly declares schools to be “gun-free zones,” yet the U.S. Department of Education is in the process of purchasing more than two-dozen short-barreled police-style shotguns which are supposed to be delivered by March 22 to an address in Chicago, IL.
And they’re supposed to match the ones they already have.
Mr. Workman sensibly asks, “Why does the Department of Education need short-barreled shotguns?” My theory: “They”, functioning as the DoE, don’t. Either there’s an off-the-books agency laundering purchases though DoE, or else they are preparing a “DoE militia” for when things go South, and paper-pushers will be pulling triggers instead (and not for long, I’d wager). Your guess is as good as mine.
Is there a zero-tolerance policy about playing Department of Education Employee in school?
