The IRS has spent more than $10 million to buy guns, ammunition, and military supplies since 202, according to reports.
The report released last month showed just how much Biden has militarized the tax gathering agency.
But it isn’t just the IRS. Biden’s obscene government also spent more than $3.7 billion arming a long list of other federal agencies.
Why is Biden arming the federal government like this?
Because he intends to use the government to attack Americans en masse.
Per The Blaze:
The report revealed that the IRS and 102 other agencies outside the Department of Defense invested a combined total of $3.7 billion since 2006 – adjusted for inflation – on weapons, ammunition, and military-style equipment. OpenTheBooks.com stated that 76 of the 102 are rank-and-file regulatory agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, Social Security Administration, Veterans Affairs, and Health and Human Services.
“There are now more federal agents with arrest and firearm authority (200,000) than U.S. Marines (186,000),” the watchdog group’s report noted.
Since 2006, the IRS has purchased $35.2 million worth of guns, ammunition, and other tactical gear for its special agents. The agency ramped up its weapon purchases in 2020 and 2021, spending $10 million since the beginning of the COVID lockdowns.
OpenTheBooks.com’s report revealed a breakdown of the agency’s recent purchases, which showed that since 2020 the IRS spent $2.3 million on duty ammunition, $1.2 million on ballistic shields, $474,000 on Smith & Wesson rifles, $467,000 on tactical lighting, $463,000 on Baretta shotguns, $354,000 on tactical gear bags, $267,000 on ballistic helmets, and $243,000 on body armor vests.
Joe Biden views Americans as the enemy and he needs an army to take us all down.
And he’s building it with our own tax dollars.
