GOP Congressman Raises Concerns On Massive IRS Munitions Stockpile

(Rallying Patriots) – Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida has decided to show the entire country how bold and brave he actually is by taking a stand against the most well-armed and dangerous force ever assembled against the citizens of this beautiful country of ours.

Who might that be, you ask?

According to Fox News, the congressman is taking on the Internal Revenue Service, asking the one question that we all desperately need the answer to: Why has the Biden administration’s IRS bought more than $700K worth of ammunition?

I mean, they are only supposed to be accountants going about the work of enforcing tax laws and investigating fraud. They are not a group of armed soldiers who are to be sent out to collect the taxes they want to take at gunpoint. They already sort of do that with the whole, “pay your taxes or go to jail” thing anyway. Why the need for all these bullets?

“During just these first seven months of 2022, the IRS has purchased $725,000 worth of ammunition,” according to Gaetz.

“I’m not against stockpiling ammunition, but you shouldn’t have to be a D.C. accountant to do it; you ought to be able to be a mechanic in Pensacola,” he stated during an interview with Fox News. He then pointed out that the Biden administration is seeking to “disarm Americans, open the border, empty the prisons,” and “still collect your taxes” with $725,000 worth of ammunition to do it, he went on to explain.

While conducting his interview with Watters, Gaetz said, “Call me old-fashioned, but I thought the heaviest artillery an IRS agent would need would be a calculator. I imagine the IRS in green eyeshades and cubicles — not busting doors down and emptying Glock clips on our fellow Americans. Certainly, it’s troubling that in 2022 alone, the IRS has spent around $725,000 on ammunition. So here’s the Biden plan: Disarm Americans, open the border, empty the prisons — but rest assured, they’ll still collect your taxes, and they need $725,000 worth of ammunition, apparently, to get the job done.”

“‘Tax cheat’ isn’t usually a term we hear alongside ‘armed and dangerous.’ And there was a report that showed over a 10-year period, the IRS actually stockpiled $11 million worth of ammunition,” the congressman added.

“That’s why I’m working on legislation to put a total moratorium on the IRS buying ammo. When we used to talk about the IRS being weaponized, we were talking about political discrimination, not actual weapons for the IRS,” Gaetz continued.

In order to fight back against this, Gaetz and Reps. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Paul Gosar of Arizona, and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, have cosponsored the “Disarm the IRS” bill.

Duncan got on Twitter during the middle part of June to ask about why the IRS needs to have such “heavy firepower” for enforcing tax laws against the American people.

“The four Representatives will need to shepherd the bill through the House Ways and Means Committee before it can be considered by the full House of Representatives, a process replete with opportunities for House Democrats to slow or even kill it,” The Western Journal reported.

The IRS itself says that they are an agency tasked with conducting investigations into “potential criminal violations of the Internal Revenue Code and related financial crimes in a manner that fosters confidence in the tax system and compliance with the law.”

Why does any of that require a large cache of ammunition? You see, the Second Amendment was designed to provide the American people with the means of protecting their lives, liberty, and property from tyrants and criminals. It was not affording the same level of protection to the federal government. When the government starts massively arming its agencies, you know that some sort of oppression is coming down the pike. The writing is on the wall, so to speak.

In 2020, OpenTheBooks.com reported that the IRS is in possession of an arsenal that includes the following weapons:

-3,282 pistols
-621 shotguns
-539 rifles
-15 fully automatic firearms
-4 revolvers

Then the Government Accountability Office broke down the agency’s large stockpile:

-Pistol and revolver rounds: 3,151,500
-Rifle rounds: 1,472,050
-Shotgun rounds: 367,750
-Fully automatic firearm rounds: 56,000

Gaetz himself did not provide a theory for why, exactly, Biden’s IRS would need to purchase this much ammunition, though he did speculate that it could be some sort of tactic geared toward denying the supply of ammo to the average citizen.

“Undeniably, part of the strategy is that with one hand, the Biden regime is doing everything they can to suppress access to ammunition for regular Americans, while with the other hand, they are scooping up all of the ammo that they can possibly find,” he said.

I mean, what justification, besides the speculation Gaetz offered above, could there be for having tax collectors coming out with the same level of firepower as an infantry battalion? It just doesn’t make sense any other way.

  1. This is why the New Radicalized Far Left Demoncrat Socialist .Party along with the Deep Dark State want to Eliminate the Second Amendment, so “We The People” will Not be Able to Defend Our Families, Our Property nor Ourselves!!!!
    Wake Up America, We Are in Very, Very Serious, Grave and Dire Danger “From Within” By The Washington, DCeivers!!!

  2. Until the spineless, “go along to get along” weakling Republicans start to fight back, make demands and play by some of the liberal rules we can expect the lying, cheating libs will win every time. Do we see turtle McConnell making a fuss over the Trump raid? Do we see more than a handful of younger Republican politicians raising voices and following through on pursuing truth and getting answers?
    Seems we need a million person march on D.C. Elect new, young, aggressive candidates and if they prove worthless then throw the bums out next time. Of course, this can only happen if the citizenry keeps up with the good/bad of the bunch.
    I do wonder if the new and young generation has the intellect, motivation and love for this country to get it back on track.

  3. Good job Mat Gaetz. It looks as if the IRS is going to use the tactics of an ‘armed’ IRS. So who are they taking this army to: Americans.
    This is all brought about by an administration that lets criminals run loose. Maybe they think they need to fill those empty jail’s.

    Of course they need to squeeze every last dollar out of every man and woman, they need the cash to fund all the hyper expensive bills they are legislating.

  4. Back in the old days the irs used to be primarily responsible for auditing income tax returns. Why do they need guns to sit at a desk and audit returns? Irs agents are usually accountants and all they need are pens, pencils, a calculator and access to the regulations regarding income tax returns. Something is Very Wrong when this current regime in D.C. wants to arm accountants and bookkeepers.

  5. The IRS was established to be an agency for accounting, tracking taxes and fraud investigation, not a law enforcement agency toting fire arms to threaten Americans. The IRS has very latge powers to freeze bank accounts, garnish wages and foreclose on property. That is normally done through court proceedings. Any law enforcement should be handled locally through court ordered warrants and services provided by local law enforcement. What we have here is the beginnings od a standing army by an agency not authorized through congress, the senate and certainly not by we the people. Notice when you read the published number of firearms and ammunition it is the very same that the feds want to deny we the people to possess. Really one sided, don’t you think, and very convenient. Wake up All Americans. If you think by being a democrat or liberal you are protected, you’re a bigger fool, cause these elite socialist democrats in power have no compunction about feeding on their own, if they get in the way. No one is safe when our justice system is headed by those who bend the law to their liking. What has been happening to president Trump can just as easily happen to you. Example folks involved in Jan 6th demonstration, some that never entered into the Capital Bldg. Also don’t forget the unarmed young woman murdered by Capital Police uncharged, uninvestigated openly and still roaming free, while protesters languish in solitaty confinement for iver a 1-1/2 with no bail.

  6. The Republican (Lackey/RINO) Party is as Bad as the Demoncrat Socialist Party, but in a far different way, which is just as Anti-American as the Demoncrat Party!!! The Demoncrat Socialist Party has just a couple of DINO’s, but the Republican (Lackey/RINO) Party has far more the ever should be Allowed nor Justified!!!!!
    The Republican (Lackey/RINO) Party MUST Create a True America First, Make America Great Again Platform!!!! They Must Find and Demand Complete Loyalty to Such a Platform within the Party Candidates, Representatives and Senators , Pledging Allegiance to Such a Platform!!!
    The Republican(Lackey/RINO) Party Must Find the Same Courage to Save America, as the Demoncrats have to Destroy Our True America!!!! The Republican
    (Lackey/RINO) Party Must Develop a Campaign Platform for all those running for re-election to find all the True Facts and Consequences about all the Anti-American issues and Make The Public Aware!!!!! This Must Be Done NOW!!!!
