This is sooooooooooo ridiculous also if this is the American way, this world is in a bigggggggggg mess!!
GREENVILLE, S.C.South Carolinas 3rd Congressional District representative wants to know why he saw IRS agents training with powerful, semi-automatic rifles
Republican Jeff Duncan said he made the discovery at a Maryland Federal Law Enforcement Training Center on May 23.
The congressman was touring the facility with Homeland Security officials as part of his investigation into the amount of ammunition purchases the agency conducts.
Duncan told News 4s Sean Muserallo he saw about eight or nine shooters identified to him as IRS agents practicing at an indoor 100-yard range.
While we were sitting there, said Duncan,the gentleman told them to sling their weapons and load a 30-round magazine into the AR-15s they were training with.
Duncan said he was concerned about what he saw.
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? Theyre 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.
Duncan said the IRS has the resources of the federal government, including the FBI, if they come into a situation where they feel like they need a SWAT team.
According to IRS spokesman Mark Green out of the agencys Atlanta field office, for security reasons, the IRS does not discuss their firearms training operations.
He did confirm agents will train at the FLETC in Maryland.
