IRS Agent Patrol Rifles Questioned

June 12, 2013  | 

A Southern Republican congressman questioned why enforcement agents with the Internal Revenue Service need AR-15 patrol rifles in remarks to Politico.

Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) toured a federal law enforcement training center in May and noticed federal agents training with AR-15s. The agents identified themselves as IRS enforcement agents.

"I think Americans raise eyebrows when you tell them that IRS agents are training with a type of weapon that has stand-off capability. It's not like they're carrying a sidearm and they knock on someone's door and say, 'You're evading your taxes,'" Duncan told the Web site.

The IRS needs cap guns, not rifles.

Same reason we all do...because we can. You cant support gun control yet question it when a legal owner is using/training with them.

OfficerJason , you are 100% correct. I wish some people in politics knew this.
