According to Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, Team Biden’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) spent $700,000 on handgun ammo between March 1 and June 1.
Gaetz told Breitbart News that the IRS’s ammunition acquisition is “bizarre.”
“There is the worry that this is part of a larger attempt to have an entity in the federal government purchase up ammo to lower the amount of ammunition in supply while also making it more difficult to make bullets,” Gaetz added.
If federal agencies continue to acquire ammo, American individuals may find their capacity to exercise the Second Amendment curtailed owing to a lack of ammunition, according to Gaetz.
He depicted a bleak scenario in which the government decreases ammunition manufacturing while “soaking up” the supplies.
AWR Hawkins, a Breitbart Second Amendment contributor, pointed out that a search of usaspending.gov reveals the IRS’s ammunition purchases, which occurred over several months in quantities ranging from $3,201 worth of ammo to $92,000+ worth of munitions.
According to an OpenTheBooks report from 2020, the IRS had 4,600 weapons and five million rounds of ammunition on hand as of January 1, 2019. That armament was expected to grow dramatically, with Democrats proposing an additional $80 billion in spending and the hire of 87,000 new IRS officers.
“According to the documentation provided by all 26 CI field offices, the NCITA, and the TIGTA OI, there were a total of eight firearm discharges classified as the intentional use of force incidents and eleven discharges classified as accidental during FYs 2009 through 2011,” according to a TIGTA report.
“The gun prohibition lobbies, having generally failed in their endeavours to persuade legislators to ban weapons, have strengthened their efforts to disarm Americans by other means,” David Kopel said in a September 2021 article for The Federalist. … The continuous ammo shortage is making it difficult to exercise one’s right to bear arms under the Second Amendment.
Many gun owners have reduced their practice time because they are unsure if they will be able to refill their ammunition.
Customers at some firing ranges are unable to purchase a box of ammo. The shortage is especially difficult for the millions of Americans who will buy their first pistol in 2020 and will be unable to practise.”
