Good for them. They will run through their ammo quickly while those who are trained and keep their heads will be able to quickly defeat them.
“I guess they are going to drop all pretense, and just KILL conservatives now....”
Not quite, Mr. Banker. The second and most important question must be raised: Can these fat, desk-bound slobs hit the broadside of a barn?
A very easy, simple step for the next Republican congress should be to bar non-police and non-intelligence federal agencies from stockpiling weapons or having tactical teams.
If they need some to enforce the law, they should contact one of the 100+ federal police agencies that would perform these duties for them.
The noteworthy example of this nonsense was when the Department of Education sent its SWAT team to raid the home of an education aid fraud suspect. They raided the home where her ex-husband and children lived, but she had not, for over six months.
Since these agencies have not had the authority to order weapons and tactical equipment, nor set up tactical teams, for very long, they would not realistically suffer losing them.
And it would be remarkably easy legislation for congress to pass. One of a thousand or more to put the US back on track.
Obama will read about this in the newspaper and be “shocked”
Agreed, but the IRS is just one of the many 3 letter agencies who will be this private civilian army that "O" boasted that he needed and wanted to be just as well trained and equipped as the Military to do his bidding (his version of Hitler's Brown Shirts). If this man and all of his appointed minions are not removed from office he will have his way.
Ah but he again will not be seen as the aggressor. He will not strike first. He will wait, cause pain and distress and cause the people to make the move he wants. All that has happened lately is just part of the plan. Perhaps I am wrong...I do hope that I am!
Now you know where all those billions and billions of hollow point bullets are going for. To train to kill citizens. Why else would they have them. WHY does clerks in a bunch of offices NEED AR15s???????????????????? To murder citizens with. That is why.
If you don’t know, Civil Service rules allows an LEO to retire after 25 years of service. That is why a lot of the Gov’t unions push to classify the agency’s with LEO designation. I worked for the Defense investigative Service in the mid eighties, (security background investigations), and there was a push to attempt to make us LEO designated. Eventually they split off a criminal side of the DIS to accommodate it.
It’s all about higher pay scales and early retirements. It has nothing to do with threats of violence to the employees.
Don’t they need to be armed because they deal with people’s money?
not news really, they have been armed forever.
remember that tv show “lottery!” back in the 80’s? the irs agent was carrying a handgun.
I’ll be here all week.
Don’t forget to tip your waitress.
Tax collectors with “assault weapons”. Nothing good came come of this. The Muzzies thought they had it rough being water-boarded. That was a piece of cake compared to being hit with a .223 round.
I expect they'll be part of the government force that comes for your guns and gold...one day.
That would be interesting to try. If you have one, are you able to hold the muzzle on target?
And if that doesn’t work out they can try out for TSA...
Wait until you see how well the census-takers are in 2020!
My wife has a co-worker who has a female spouse who is an armed IRS agent. They get involved in lots of Earned Income Tax Credit fraud and “who takes the child deduction since we’re not married” fraud. It is not unreasonable for some of them to be armed.
AR training? Absurd. It is past time to scale back our domestic Federal standing army of agents.
“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”
>>lots of IRS were armed.
Big whoop. With the lack of PT and fitness standards self-evident among their bloated and Oba-medicated carcasses, the majority of them would croak from heat injuries and/or cardiac events before they managed to cover 100 yards at full waddle.
ESAD FOAD - if you do, you will. Bon Appetit.
Perfect Bureaucratic Idiocy:
Shooting the taxpayers that pay your salary!
Yup...noticed a new office going up here in York, PA a few months ago. There was some building going on and we couldn’t figure out what type of business it was going to be...turned out to be the worst business of all...an IRS office.
“Well, if you hadn’t setup a group to demean and shrink the government then the government wouldn’t have to resort to this level”
You know - YOU KNOW - some idiot liberal somewhere thought this while reading this article.
“So beware when you fill out your 1040 that you don’t fudge on it.”
Are you hiding something? Why bury your head in the stand? Fight. Better to fill it out, but handwritten. Sloppy, with stray marks or odd pens. Make sure they cannot use their automated scanners to read it and it requires human review. Do it correctly however, double check your arithmetic.
And, for a bonus, neglect $50 or $100 in deductions, then submit an amended return to get that extra $10 bucks back. Bury those f-——z in paperwork. File quarterly estimates.
The only guberment organization that was able to take down Al Capone... Nothing to worry about.
Way longer than that. Gun fights between moonshiners and revenuers are the stuff of legend.
“Now the revenue man wanted Grandaddy bad
He headed up the holler with everything he had
It’s before my time but I’ve been told
He never come back from Copperhead Road.”

Takes lots of practice but gets REALLY expensive to fire that way nowadays!You Tube video will show you the conversion of the stock .Not hard to do .
I don’t know if the house or senate or both can stop the funding of this, but they must! If they can’t see what obama is doing, they should not be representing us.
Like I said so many times....I don’t for a second think the GOP, the likes of McCain et al...knew nothing about how the Dems were manipulating the mortgages in the 90’s. I don’t believe they knew nothing about the abuse of Tea Party types by the IRS. I don’t believe they know nothing about the awful foreign policy that led to Benghazi. I don’t believe they know nothing about the purchase of all this ammunition by the DHS,
And if they knew nothing about it, I’ll throw out there, then they are totally incompetent.
Either way, at best we have no opposition party. At worst, the blue blood GOP is working WITH the Dems while trying to look ignorant of it all.
Cause the likes of McCain et al....THEY HATE THE TEA PARTY TOO!
Not to worry cause Americans aren’t going to take this sitting down. We have guns and we’re going to fight back. The ones that will go down will be mostly stupid liberals.
Obama’s doing what Obama does and he does it well. It’s the guys on OUR side who are the problem.
AR-15 or not, why does anyone in the IRS need a weapon to do their job?
IRS AGENTS TRAIN WITH AR-15s ARE THEY PREPARING TO TARGET MORE CONSERVATIVES?
The IRS defends the training, in a statement that reads, in part:
As law enforcement officials, IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agents are equipped similarly to other federal, state and local law enforcement organizations. Special Agents receive training on the appropriate and safe use of assigned weapons.
In responding to the revelation about IRS agents training on AR-15s at a DHS facility, the agency included a link to its enforcement website (http://www.irs.gov/uac/Criminal-Investigation-%28CI%29-At-a-Glance). Okay, we checked out that link and found no obvious reference to the need for, or use of, high-powered assault rifles.
What makes you think they (politicians, R & D) WANT to stop it?
They rush ordered and then cancelled a bunch of spying devices too.
My daughter’s best friend is an IRS collection agent. While she is not armed, she is often accompanied by armed agents on her assignments. Treasury agents in the past were called T Men, think Elliot Ness, and they were armed . Additionally every LEO agency, fed, state, and local have developed SWAT type units. Even the Education Dept has had such a unit for some time.. Agencies don’t like calling on other agencies for help, even for SWAT type scenarios so they arm and give half ass training to their own and send them out.I really don’t think 25K IRS agents will be marching out with M 16s anytime soon.
Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election of 2012 for Obama and democrats/socialists in the Senate. Obama also used other gov agencies to rig the election. Why isnt anyone shouting this form the rooftops? Come on Levin, coulter , Sarah Palin, Rush, DRudge etc. call Obama out on this and call for Obamas resignation.
Obamas IRS prevented many tea party groups from getting started The IRS stole the election. We no longer live in a free country
IRS Employee: D.C. Told Us To Target Tea Party
government never works as the IRS scandal shows
government cant be trusted
but liberals/democrats trust government and love gov
If someone doesn’t see the need to prep at this point, there’s no hope for them.
” The second and most important question must be raised: Can these fat, desk-bound slobs hit the broadside of a barn?”
LOL....more likely, the barn side of a broad : )
“...I dont know if the house or senate or both can stop the funding of this, but they must! If they cant see what obama is doing, they should not be representing us....”
Oh, they see it alright. They’re all scared spit-less because of odongo’s use of PRISM software weapon: He has the goods & dirt on just about all of em. Just ask Herman Cain, David Patreaus, Mitt Romney and of course, last but not least, our modern day Benedict Arnold, John Roberts. They’ve all seen the damage that PRISM can do and how it was used against these people. Odongo has them right where he wants them: hiding under their desks in dire fear that their dirtiest and deepest secrets will be revealed to the public. Blackmail is a powerful weapon on a politician, especially gutless ones. The only way these tyrants are going to be ousted is by the people. They fear the people and thus have armed themselves to the hilt. This is truly a usurped government preparing for war with the people.
” Tax collectors with assault weapons. Nothing good came come of this.”
No to worry......they only target conservatives....
” Either way, at best we have no opposition party. At worst, the blue blood GOP is working WITH the Dems while trying to look ignorant of it all.
Cause the likes of McCain et al....THEY HATE THE TEA PARTY TOO!”
They hate the Tea party because they can’t be CONTROLLED.
“There are many reasons to ask why the #IRS needs heavy firepower. For one we are 17 trillion in debt. Two is it even appropriate? #PJNET”
No one collects 17T with harsh words and letters.
Follow the money. It’s all about the debt and who will service it: serfs.
Fealty -an old word which is coming around again.
Move along. Nothing at all to see here.
Those who feel safer with Boehner, McCain, Graham, Feinstein, Mr. Fast & Furious, Big Guv and...the Pat-Act "protecting" our liberties?
