Watchdog report shows the IRS has spent $10 million on weapons, ammo, and other combat gear since 2020
· May 4, 2023 ·

First, we had the 87,000 IRS agents added to the roster under Biden's fake Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Then, we saw the employment ads from the IRS showing that their new agents would be required to be okay with using deadly force.

Now, we have reports from watchdogs showing the IRS is, essentially, militarizing.

Guns, ammo, and combat equipment have all been purchased by the IRS recently, almost as if they're arming up for a coming battle...

Here's the breakdown from Open the Books on "interesting IRS purchases since 2020":

  • $2.3 million on duty ammunition
  • $1.2 million on ballistic shields, plus another $1.3 million on ‘various other gear for criminal investigation agents" – very non-transparent description
  • $474,000 on Smith & Wesson rifles
  • $467,000 on duty tactical lighting
  • $463,000 on Baretta 1301 tactical shotguns
  • $354,000 on tactical gear bags
  • $267,000 on ballistic helmets
  • $243,000 on body armor vests

They are buying this stuff with YOUR money, mind you.

But don't worry, it's not like the IRS would ever target the Democrats' political opponents or go after regular people with money in their piggy banks.


At least for every gun THEY buy, it looks like citizens are buying even more.

Looks like we might just need them.
