IRS Acquiring Short-Barrel Shotguns

Already our economy is staggering under the weight of taxation. But if we are to make even a dent in the bills Comrade Obama is running up with his ongoing looting spree, tax rates will have to shoot through the stratosphere. Eventually confiscatory taxation will become so outrageous that people will begin to remember that we are supposedly free Americans, not slaves of the greed-addled socialists running the federal government. The IRS is preparing for this eventuality by stocking up on short-barrel shotguns:

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.

Fourteen-inch barrel, huh? Anything less than 18 inches is illegal for us tax slaves.

So much for the consent of the governed. The crew in Washington now are on the record as agreeing with history’s most bloodthirsty tyrant that “power comes from the barrel of a gun.”

Government is coercion. As this story reminds us, everything it does boils down to a bureaucrat hiring a thug to poke a shotgun in your belly. This is why the Founding Fathers went to such lengths to constrain its power — and why our current rulers are systematically destroying those constraints.

Pay your taxes or you may get to see what these look like with shorter barrels.
