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

Yup. I never used the 3-rnd burst when I was in the Army. It’s only good for suppression IMO. It sucked for control and accuracy vs. the partial release and firing of semi. Besides, in an excited firing situation the chamber heats up it goes full auto anyways. Lol, had to be careful where it was pointed when chambering the next magazine. When you’re excited it gets excited too!

You would think that the ability and the capacity to stand on one’s own during adverse condititions without Government health would be looked on as a good thing by anyone that calls themselves a conservative. Isn’t that the one of the basic tenets of conservatism not relying on the government? And yet here on one of the most conservative sites on the web some take no action to allow them to stand on their own. They rather as I have said before stand on a bridge somewhere and wait for FEMA to come along with a bottle of water (Make DAMN sure its cold to!), an MRE, a warm blanket and a kiss for their boo-boo.

“When I left there, it’s been bugging me for weeks now, why IRS agents are training with a semi-automatic rifle AR-15, which has stand-off capability,” Duncan told POLITICO. “Are Americans that much of a target that you need that kind of capability?”

My bet would be the current issue is the M4A1. Who knows what they have laying around, however.

Thanks... what the IRS and FBI need to understand is this: If there were wildly violent Conservative Americans in this country the New York Times would be filling their pages with stories about them EVERY DAY. Liberal papers hate conservatives.

The IRS and FBI were fed bullsh*t stories to manipulate them... Believe me it worked. They're nuts.

During the reign of Clinton, prior to the democrats loosing the house, I knew a DOT agent who got a swat team together and raided, at start of business, a small business in California.

As the agent yelled “go, go, go” he tripped upon exiting his car on a curb and broke his ankle.

They were raiding a business with a swat team for transportation mistakes...go figure. Sounds kind of like a guitar company.

Benjamin Franklin said that there is nothing certain in life but death and taxes. In a rare fit of government efficiency, they are now being handled by the same agency.

I am certain this is happening.

But this will go NOWHERE in the mind of the public unless there are photos/videos recording this that can go viral.

I suppose it never occurred to the Congressman to pick up his smartphone and record video and/or photos. Otherwise it comes off as tinfoil hattery to the man on the street.

Our side had BETTER start learning to fight.

If you were going out to earn your living by cheating and robbing people wouldn’t you want to be heavily armed?

How about some gun control for IRS agents?
