A firearms training session took a tragic turn on Friday as an IRS agent lost his life during an exercise in Phoenix. The FBI has confirmed the unfortunate incident.

    It is a tragedy that the IRS agent was killed, but in the first place The IRS does not need to be armed, you are taking a group of individuals that aren’t qualified to be armed, they are a bunch of paper pushers who want to be wannabe bad and go out ending up killing so poor tax payer, as most of the agencies that have done this turned in a bunch of trigger happy killers.

      Was it one of the latest IRS whistle blowers planning to testify in the Hunter Biden case?

    Just curious, why do IRS agents need guns? I can see pens, pencils, calculators and charts. They going to shoot someone for an 11.20 mistake on their return?

    So far you have the IRS shooting each other and the other day you have an ATF agent on the wrong side of the shooting range table with what looked like a loaded MP44 pointed at his nuts while some one was firing about 3 stations down from him. I think they need to ban the government from using fire arms since they show a deep lack of knowledge on how to handle them. That or get a legal gun owner or two that has knowledge of firearms and its proper handling and use to teach them.

    “Armed” IRS agents? Why? And is there a ‘cover-up’ of this incident?

    Wait, What the hell is the IRS doing with guns. There has never been a need for them to be armed. This is Biden’s way of turning us in to a communist country. They want to make the dollar in to digital currency and if you don’t comply they now will send in people that are not qualified to ever handle a gun in to show force. It’s time to stop him now before all hell breaks loose

    What is tragic about it? I don’t understand. I thought dead slavemaster flunkies was a good thing. Please explain the propaganda title to this weepy piece. Was it actually written by an American?

    Idiot Biden is so engaged with gun control, he can start with the IRS. Issue each agent a pencil, an eraser and a calculator. No guns.

    I won’t be surprised if the agent in training who shot another agent is a woman.

      Interesting you should say that. I was wondering the same thing since I can’t find any article stating the gender or race of the shooter or the shootee.

    The IRS has absolutely no reason whatsoever to need armed agents. Heck, there’s a very strong case that the IRS should even exist…

    Please don’t miss the huge irony here: The same people in government, who, IF they had the power, would gladly come and take your weapons by force, are more than happy for themselves to be armed. See how that works?

    Never believe the communist liberal lie that says they are anti-gun. They hold no such position. What they are opposed to, is the fact that they do not have absolute control over who is or isn’t allowed to have weapons. That’s what drives them insane. They have no issue with them having weapons. None. They have a big problem with those who might oppose them having weapons…and that’s exactly why the Founding Fathers wanted the citizens to be able to have weapons…to give them some level of defense against a government who does not want the citizenry to have weapons.

    Armed IRS agents. What’s next? We can’t have guards with firearms at schools to protect our children but, IRS agents need guns. For a president so dead set against all firearms, really!? I hope this deceased agents family sues the federal government. He/she is an office worker. Pencil, eraser, calculator, pen, coffee mug. If going out in the field get someone already trained in gun safety and knows what they’re doing, such as an officer of the law, to go with. Like child protection agents. Or are they now armed too.

    Why do IRS accountants need firearm training?

    The congress gave authorization to the IRS to hire 40,000 ne agents and they would be armed. I think this was during bidens second year as a puppet. I’m getting to old for all this crap coming out og Washington DC. I guess everyone has forgotten that the government works for us, not the other way around.
