GOP Senator Launches Bill to Take Guns & Ammo Away from the IRS

Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) has introduced a bill to disarm the IRS and prevent the agency from purchasing any more guns and ammo. When George W. Bush was in office, the tax collection agency suddenly began buying guns and ammo, becoming a de facto federal domestic army. The IRS paused the purchase of any new firearms while Donald Trump was in office, but it has now started buying new firearms to crack down on Joe Biden’s political opponents.

The bill is called the Why Does the IRS Have Guns Act. It would specifically prohibit the IRS from purchasing any more guns, ammunition, or military-style equipment. All of the weaponry currently owned by the IRS would be transferred to the Government Services Agency (GSA), and then auctioned off to federal firearms license holders.

The proceeds from the sale of the IRS arsenal would be earmarked to reduce the deficit. The IRS Criminal Investigation Division would also be reassigned within the Justice Department.

The IRS has spent some $32.5 million on guns, ammo, and military equipment since 2006. $10 million of that has been spent just since Joe Biden took over the country in the stolen 2020 election.

“It’s concerning how the Biden administration has worked to expand the size of the IRS, and even more concerning that the IRS is using taxpayer dollars to arms its agents,” Ernst told Breitbart News. “My bill would transfer these guns out of the IRS’ possession to ensure it does not abuse its power to target hardworking Americans.”

The bad news, obviously, is that even if this legislation manages to make its way through the Senate and the House, Joe Biden would never sign it into law. He wants the IRS to be armed, so the persecution of his political enemies can continue.
