Moderators, I feel that the following is directly related preparedness and survival. It is my hope that you will leave it in this part of the forum where more members visit and can read it. If you move it elsewhere, I understand. Thanks.
Here are two stories, with factual info and direct links to purchase request for firearms for the IRS and the Dept. of Education. They should give anyone that reads them great concern about what is really going on in our Republic, They both gave me pause, and also let me know that our government and it's Departments, are increasingly threatening the citizens of our Republic. The condition of our Republic is a grave one.
What you will read below is partly why I prep and prepare.
The IRS is buying itself some new toys.
This story is straight from the Department of the Treasury. It's also directly from their website. It rings of, "Pay your taxes or else!" Have a look-see.
Here's a snippet. The link to their website and this information is below it.
"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. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts"
And then there's this.
Why does Department of Education need 12-gauge shotguns?
Below is a quote. The link to the story is below it. And also a link the leads directly to the purchase request. Think people. Why would the Dept. of Education need 12-gauge shotguns?
"The U.S. Department of Education (ED) intends to purchase twenty-seven (27) REMINGTON BRAND MODEL 870 POLICE 12/14P MOD GRWC XS4 KXCS SF.
