The IRS Is Purchasing Shotguns. So?

A lot of people are making a big deal out of this.  And there are some valid questions here:

  1. Why a shotgun?  Why not a pistol or a rifle?
  2. Why a shotgun with a 14 inch barrel.  Normal citizens can’t even purchase one with a barrel that short.
  3. What the hell does the IRS need to be armed for?  They file suits, not invade.

Now for my “stop being paranoid” list:

  1. They ordered sixty(60).  Assuming that the IRS is about to turn into a para-military organization, it will take them quite a while to get to my house if they only have 60 of these things.  It’s not like they ordered arms for thousands of shock troops.
  2. They are being added to the arms they already have.  If they aren’t attacking with what they have, 60 more ain’t gonna cut it.
  3. Can’t you think of where they might need these?  How about the guy behind the counter at the IRS building?  And with the absolute reaming that Obama is about to give everyone on taxes, it might not hurt to be better armed.

Calm down people.

Pay up or else.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division.

Collecting taxes must be a pretty dangerous job these days.
