The IRS Is Buying Up Ammo, While The Government Intends To Make It Harder For Citizens To Acquire

According to a report by Breitbart, the Internal Revenue Service has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars buying ammunition, raising concern about why a government agency is buying ammunition that the administration plans to restrict further in the coming months. 

On Saturday, Congressman Matt Gaetz told Breitbart that the IRS spent approximately $700,000 “between March and June 1” purchasing ammunition.

Gaetz called the IRS’s acquisition of the ammunition “bizarre.” He said, “There is concern that this is part of a broader effort to have any entity in the federal government buy up ammo to reduce the amount of ammunition that is in supply, while at the same time, making it harder to produce ammo.”

According to the Government Accountability Office the ammunition breakdown at the time included:

  • 3,151,500 Pistol and revolver rounds
  • 1,472,050 Rifle rounds
  • 367,750 Shotgun rounds
  • 56,000 Fully automatic firearm rounds

More interesting is that the IRS does not follow any regulations concerning the issuance, use, and accountability of the agency’s staff carrying such weapons. This starkly contradicts the recent push of gun control laws nationwide, including more heavily regulated training and liability.

especially for the IRS agents who are assigned to take anything from the public… the attrition of irs agnets will be very high.

Just a thought. A ‘what if’ thought. The Feds have been making large ammo purchases for non-military agencies for years. I remember them even purchasing 12 ga. riot shotguns for the USPS a few years back. So, what if the Feds were to supply all those military aged male illegals flooding across the border with firearms and ammo? Yeah. I know. They’d never do something like that.

Not a far-fetched thought IMO.

In Illinois, legal gun owners have to apply for and possess a “FOID” card to purchase ammunition. Been this way at least five years but possibly much longer. Most residents of the state cross state lines to get ammo

Aime, I got my first FOID card in the early 1970’s. Still have it.

I Never Have or Will Trust The IRS or Any Part Of Our Government.
Ever since the Government ban Russia ammunition. I noticed that the price of ammunition has dropped as much as a $140 for a 1000 rounds 9mm that was.going for $45 a few months ago, now is going for $18-$25 at different events. I have and will continue to stock cases for every gun I own. I Take The 2nd Amendment Very Personal!

The big thing is, do they practice? and who in the IRS is carrying? I do know they won’t let you carry into an audit. Been there done that. So I refuse to audit in their office anymore and I tell them why. If they want to audit me it must be in a public place, and I will be carrying. They will accommodate you and will be very cooperative if you refused to disarm. I found them to understand and they will not try to mess with your rights.

is it lost on anyone the massive amount purchases near the tail end of the Obama Administration?

Kids, this is called prepositioning and cashing. The arming years ago of the postal service, forest service, social security administration, etc. is not to fight the Russians. I’ll give you a mirror and three guesses.

Never forget that what we hear about the Biden/Lake City deal & this article is the tip of the shitberg. Just like the death jab’s ultimate goal is depopulation so is the red flag & ammo buys meant to infringe & end our 2A.

They are going to need more ammo! If I was an IRS agent I would want body armor and armed guards around my home. You should hear the talk of the retired red necks at the local cafe.

Love the thumbnail picture of the MK211 Raufoss! Every patriot needs a 50BMG (a single shot Barrett M99 or Noreen rifle is not that expensive if you can’t afford a M82A1 or Ma Deuce). Get your hands on a some Raufoss rounds on gunbroker and you’re a force to be reckoned with. You have a fighting change against APVs, Helicopters, etc. You’re not doing yourself any good with 10-15 Ar15s with 20,000 rounds of ammo if you’re a one man show or even a family. DIVERSIFY.
