According to a report by Breitbart, the Internal Revenue Service has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars buying ammunition, raising concern about why a government agency is buying ammunition that the administration plans to restrict further in the coming months.

On Saturday, Congressman Matt Gaetz told Breitbart that the IRS spent approximately $700,000 “between March and June 1” purchasing ammunition.

Gaetz called the IRS’s acquisition of the ammunition “bizarre.” He said, “There is concern that this is part of a broader effort to have any entity in the federal government buy up ammo to reduce the amount of ammunition that is in supply, while at the same time, making it harder to produce ammo.”

According to documents from usaspending.gov, the IRS’s ammunition purchases ranged from $3,201 worth of ammo at one time to $92,000+ worth of ammo at one time. The purchases were spread out over several months, according to the documents, which are publicly available.

According to a report from OpenTheBooks published in 2020, the IRS had stockpiled 4,600 guns and five million rounds of ammunition as of January 2019.

3,151,500 Pistol and revolver rounds

1,472,050 Rifle rounds

367,750 Shotgun rounds

56,000 Fully automatic firearm rounds

More interesting is that the IRS does not follow any regulations concerning the issuance, use, and accountability of the agency’s staff carrying such weapons. This starkly contradicts the recent push of gun control laws nationwide, including more heavily regulated training and liability.

According to reports from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), the IRS has repeatedly failed to ensure that procedures relating to firearms are properly followed.

The Obama-Biden administration stockpiled an arsenal of high-powered weapons in the Executive Branch based on the vision of a civilian national security force. The stockpile can outfit an army. The Biden regime controls the trigger to the arsenal.

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded,” Obama said on July 2, 2008.

Non-profit OpentheBooks released a comprehensive oversight report earlier this year titled “The Militarization of The U.S. Executive Agencies”. The report estimated “that there are now more federal officers with firearm authority (200,000+) than U.S. Marines (186,000).”

There is clearly no legal authority, requirement, or reason for general administrative agencies, like the Internal Revenue Service, whose power is limited to implementing laws, to have weapons. Biden plans on expanding the IRS by 87,000 workers. Will their audit training include marksmanship?

Because we are allowed a high standard of living, and because of a document that is little more than a gentleman’s agreement called a constitution, people are pacified into believing they are “free”. We are not. We are subjects to the elites. The subjects among the middle class of western society are allowed just enough liberty to where we won’t rebel. The overlords know how much leash to let out.

Remember when the post office bought millions of rounds of 40 cal. HP's during the Obozo ammo shortage. The gubernment has guns and ammo; so should you. They have food, water and fuel plus clothes and meds - guess what so should you.
This is what I thought of when I read the title. I looked for the origi al thread date of around 2012. Not sure if it was real back then.
