I'm OK with armed IRS agents enforcing tax law. And if they feel the need to use deadly force in criminal investigations I don't expect them to fight off organized, international criminal gangs with a set of nunchucks.Here’s a political issue I have .
How did we become a nation that seizes money from people , spends it against their wishes and trains agents with assault rifles and handguns to go out and seize said monies ?
They have to use undercover agents.
They have to engage with dangerous criminals.
They need guns, ammo and proper training.
I don't see viable alternatives.
