Jeff Duncan, a Repubican congressman from South Carolina witnessed IRS agents training with AR15s and now he wants answers.
Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) has raised some eyebrows on Capitol Hill this morning, claiming that he saw IRS agents training with AR-15 rifles.
“When I left there, it’s been bugging me for weeks now, why IRS agents are training with a semi-automatic rifle AR-15, which has stand-off capability,” Duncan told Politico. “Are Americans that much of a target that you need that kind of capability?
Duncan, a member of the Homeland Security oversight subcommittee, was touring a federal law enforcement facility last month, telling Politico that he was shocked when some of the agents firing the weapons told him they were from the IRS. The AR-15 was at the center of Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s proposed assault weapons ban following the Sandy Hook shootings.
