    They need shotguns just in case you don't pay your taxes.

    And yes, we do live in a Police State.
    We have since the mid 80s.

    We moved toward a Police State in very small increments, so the majority
    of Americans didn't even notice the change.

    Meeting serious men and women with shotguns is the first thing that I'd think of IF I didn't pay my taxes.

    At least they can figure out what it takes to make a good shotgun and only wish the tax code was as easy.

    We've been a police state for some time. Where have you been?

    Never heard of "Revenoorers" You know the guys chasing the hillbilly's with the still's in the back woods.

    Revenoooreres are Revenue agents of the IRS and treasury department. They are armed federal agents who enforce tax laws.

    Ever heard of Al Capone? He was convicted of Tax Fraud because they couldn't get him for any other crimes. The IRS goes after all sorts of criminals still today. The simple rule for organized crime is "Follow the money"

    As a side note on several occasions I met IRS agents supplementing USSS protective details because they are both agents of the Treasury department.

    Calling America a police state is an insult to people who actually live in a police state.

    Although most revenuers are accountants, not all of them are, they are trained in accounting methodologies though. This weapons are for the criminal division of the IRS (Special Agents just like the FBI). Regular enforcers(field agents) of the tax code do not carry any type of weapons (except a laptop computer, a small printer and a office supplies).

    They do not need it for sure, they only need a click of a bottom from the computer and you are expunged of your money. They are watching as we speak. :alien::eagle::ufo::innocent::tinfoil:

    IRS CIs often assist other agencies with the financial aspects of their investigations, as well as building cases for prosecuting criminals for violations of tax laws. Investigating suspected terrorists, money launderers and drug dealers is something I would expect an agent would be armed for.

    They need shotguns to shoot holes in your excuses for not declaring the profit on the guns you sold.

    The IRS does employ several 1811 Positions (Federal Investigators)

    Tax Fraud puts a lot of people behind bars, including drug dealers. The IRS has a LE side, hence the shotguns. I considered applying at one point.

    I would imagine that the IRS may very well be close to or at the top of the list of agencies that receive the most threats.

    No matter how we feel about them that is a logical and rational consideration.

    I have a friend who actually was hired for the law enforcement section of the IRS...and wow...when you're dealing with some of the money laundering types it's nice to have a little protection.

    People get stupid over money.
