Posted on 06/12/2013 1:51:49 PM PDT by Whenifhow

This little item could give the IRS’ whole “targeting” conservatives scandal a brand-new twist.

Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) tweeted that he observed IRS agents training with AR-15s when he toured the Department of Homeland Security:

A few weeks ago when I toured a DHS facility I saw #IRS agents training with AR-15's. I'm looking into the issue now. #PJNET

I qualified a retired IRS agent at our gun club a few years ago. He wanted to avoid qualifying by claiming our then policy of exempting leo’s. We refused him and his gun handling skills were horrendous.

He was an armed IRS agent in TN. He said he needed to be armed for his IRS work and that lots of IRS were armed.

I don’t know what’s scarier: the IRS has a SWAT team or that IRS accountant nerds are handling weapons with live ammo.

Keep in mind that AR-15's (M-16's) are made for nothing other than killing a lot of people fast. Just ask Finestine, Pelosi and Reid.

So beware when you fill out your 1040 that you don't fudge on it.

Every federal agency has their own enforcement branch. The IRS is no different. Albeit they have absolutely no idea what they’re doing, they just want and get the same toys and gadgets that all the other federal agencies want/get.

Yeah, but George Bush Lied about weapons of mass destruction. I foresee some liberal being executed by firing squad for refusing to pay a ten dollar tax bill and when asked if he had any last words he’d say “Did you know Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction and Snowden didn’t graduate from high school?”

It is difficult to tell the difference between an M-16 / M4 and an AR-15 unless you can see the selector switch/safety up close. My guess is that Government employees/LEO's would have the mil-spec versions.

The Honorable Jeff Duncan is a civilian and is probably more familiar with the firearms which are available at his local gun shop, the AR-15. Truthfully, they all qualify as AR-15 variants, some with select fire, others without.

Slide fire on an AR 15 trumps a three round burst on M16.
