If the IRS isn’t Building an Army, Why Have they Spent $11 Million+ on Guns and Ammo?


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) seems to be building an army.

The IRS spent nearly $11 million on guns, ammunition and “military-style equipment” between 2006 and 2014, according to a new report. IRS investment in heavy firearms and tactical gear is a new trend for the agency, but it follows a pattern of militarization repeated throughout the executive branch of the government.

In “The Militarization of America,” a report by OpenTheBooks.com, examines the kinds of weapons and tactical equipment federal agencies have purchased over the past ten years. The report shows that the IRS and other non-law enforcement agencies rapidly increased purchases of military gear in the past decade.

The amount the IRS spends on weapons and equipment has risen since 2006 from around half a million to $1,070,456 in 2014. Purchases of guns and ammunition spiked in 2011 to more than $2 million, according to the report. Over the same period, the number of special agents the IRS employed declined from more than 3,000 to just about 2,000 in 2014.

“The recent spikes in IRS purchasing could be related to the increase in recent ‘Identify Theft’ crimes and the prosecution of those crimes into sophisticated gang activity,” the report says. IRS special agents are armed with Smith and Wesson M&P15s, as well as Remington shotguns and Glock .40 caliber handguns.

The IRS Criminal Investigation division, which famously captured Al Capone, boasts their conviction rate is consistently more than 90 percent, higher than any other federal law enforcement agency.

While the number of IRS special agents has declined, the number of total federal agents has increased sharply. “The number of non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000),” former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn and OpenTheBooks founder and CEO Andrew Andrzejewski said in a Wall Street Journal column.

“What exactly is the Obama administration up to?” Coburn and Andrzejewski ask.

The OpenTheBooks report shows other primarily administrative federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency, The Department of Veterans Affairs, The Department of Health and Human Services, the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Inspection Service, are also purchasing guns and ammunition gear.

Congress officially recognized OpenTheBooks as a private oversight organization in Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006, legislation co-sponsored by Coburn and President Barack Obama, who was at that time a senator from Illinois.

It's a stealth army. They hiring people behind our backs. Foreign private contractors. Illegal aliens.

Two reasons...  1)  So WE can't have them.  2)  so they can arm their 'Special Agents' on the dangerous acts of theft against us.  (INCOME TAX!!!)  Do YOU have "INCOME"?  I never have!

Ah.  Well.  The Usurper, of course, will just pack up and leave the Oval Office at the constitutionally required time.  Won't he.

And presumably, take his private army with him???... 

Obama's army  every agency is armed to the max.  Now think about that.  Obama is in total fear of the people.  The gun push is so he can remain president and take over.  That is just the beginning.  SO either you ride with him or against him.

So right you are, just remember this Its easier to kill a million people then it is to control them!

Does anyone remember nobama on the campaign trail in 2007 promising to build an army stronger, bigger and more well equipped than the U.S. military? That statement right then and there sent chills down my spine as well it should every red blooded American! He has gutted our military and built this army of loyal socialist & communists. 

Sure I remember just what Obama said and like you it sent chills down my spine. I knew then, what his plan was and being with government for 30 years I seen it coming it wasn't just the democrats it was coming from the republicans as well. That's why we haven't seen anything different from either Party. Both have been leading our country toward a One World Government. One Party may have had a different path but both were to the same place. If you really want to know what is going on go to YouTube and Look for New World Order New World Government (Documentary) the next is The Depopulation Agenda for a New World Order Agenda 21. Both are alittle long but really good. But only if you really want to wake up to want is going on.

You are exactly right! The ultimate goal of the progressives aka socialists and communists, is one world order. They are frothing at the mouth for it but I firmly believe this nation will rise against this. I think people are waking up and that is the ONLY thing we can thank nobama, pelosi and reid for. I just hope it is not too late as it may very well be.
