IRS Shotguns

Posted by taxguru on February 4, 2010

Rush also picked up on the Drudge item about IRS purchasing a bunch of new shotguns. He had this to say about the topic, as transcribed on his website.

Look at this: “The IRS Is Looking For 60 12-Gauge Pump Action Guns To Arm Its Investigators.” This is from BusinessInsider.com. “Working for the IRS doesn’t sound so wimpy anymore. The IRS apparently has plans to buy 60 Remington Model 870 police 12 gauge pump action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Unit. According to the federal business government website, these guns are serious. The Remington parkerized shotguns come fully loaded with:

A fourteen inch barrel
Modified choke
Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight
XS4 Contour Bead front sight
Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock
Speedfeed ribbed black forend

“We’re not sure what kind of IRS duty requires this kind of combat artillery, but it sounds badass. And oddly, these are the only guns the IRS is allowed to use, ‘based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory.'” (interruption) No, I don’t think this is for Geithner. You mean to get him to repay? You know, I’ll tell you what, with as much as they’re going to raise taxes they’re going to have to be a big problem. It won’t be long before they bring the military in to do this. Sixty 12-gauge pump action shotguns for the IRS?
