Thanks to Drudge's minor linkage this morning, I found this story. But, I feel this story should get national attention.
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.
What in the hell is the IRS doing with a Criminal Investigation unit that is equipped like a fully-armored SWAT team?
If this doesn't scare the dragon snot out of you, then you must be a liberal.
Seriously? Combat trained IRS agents toting 12-gauge pump action assault shotguns?
[Update:] Here is a link to the Remington model that is prolly closest to the government model.
