What possible need could a "fraud, abuse, and waste" unit have for short barrel shotguns.
The only possible purpose for that type of gun is for raids, and the Department of Education has NO business doing raids.
There's way too many Federal agencies arming themselves to the teeth, and in most cases, its so they can enhance their image not because they have any need.
This leads increasingly to the attitude that the citizens are the just prey of whoever thinks they should enforce the myriad laws that are on the books.
In too many cases, the guns and the black raid gear is nothing more than a status symbol between agencies.
