An assault weapons ban for Arne's Army?

Arne bought 27 of these military-order, Remington 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 shotguns in 2010.
Arne Duncan using his bully pulpit to call for an assault weapons ban is a hopeful sign. For one thing, while he's busy rallying the gun-control troops, he's got no time to think of new ways to close neighborhood schools, or to fire teachers in mass. That alone could save some young lives here in Chicago. Plus he'll be too busy to come up with new and "improved" standardized tests to put on top of this year's pile.

But it also got me wondering. Do we we also need to call for an assault weapons ban on Arne?  Remember the 27 military-style assault rifles Arne purchased for his private DOE army back in 2010. At the time I speculated that they were going to be used in an invasion of Rhode Island to enforce the mass firing of teachers and staff at Central Falls High School. Instead, as we all know now, they were used by DOE student loan police to raid the home of a suspected deadbeat in Stockton, Calif. They ended up rousting the wrong man in the early morning raid, but fortunately no one got blasted by Arne's new Remingtons.
