IRS Shopping For Shotguns
From the Drudge Report.
Full Acquisition Here.
"The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts."
This reminded me of something that then candidate Obama said in an interview, "I believe in people's second amendment rights. But, you're not gonna tell me you need an AK-47 to defend your home against burglars.."
It's not a verbatim quote, but the essence of it is spot-on.
Obama is right, by the way. we don't need an AK-47 to defend ourselves from burglars. We need them to protect ourselves from IRS agents with Remington Model 870 Police 12 gauge pump-action shotguns.
That is all.
