Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) is warning the American Public that the IRS is actively training and arming themselves with AR15s.
Late last night, the Congressman took to twitter to let the public know that he personally observed IRS agents training at a Maryland Department of Homeland Security Training Facility with AR15s. He made the discovery during a tour of the facility on May 23rd, as part of his investigation into the amount of ammunition purchases the agency conducts.

Early this morning Duncan told a Maryland News Station that he saw about eight or nine shooters identified to him as IRS agents practicing at an indoor 100-yard range.
He told the news agency:
“Why do IRS law enforcement agents need standoff capability that you would have with a long rifle or with a weapon similar to an AR-15? They’re generally investigating tax evasion, fraud and money laundering. We think of the IRS as an audit agency more than doing the type of law enforcement where they have to use an AR-15.”
In the midst of so many government scandals, we really have to ask ourselves why the federal government is arming themselves to the teeth. From the Department of Homeland Security’s purchase orders for billions of rounds of ammo, to speculation that they are trying to dry up ammo supplies for American Citizens, it’s sure starting to seem like they are preparing for something big.
