IRS raided a Montana gun store
About a month ago, the IRS raided a Montana gun store. Tom Van Hoose owns Highwood Creek Outfitters in Great Falls, Montana. When Van Hoose went to his store on June 14th to open, the IRS was waiting for him with a warrant. The IRS used the guise of Van Hoose misreporting his income.
20 heavily armed agents swarmed and then entered his store. The agents stayed for 10 hours. Van Hoose closed for the day. The warrant was for under-reporting millions in income. Van Hoose denies this claim. In 13 years, Van Hoose has not had any trouble.
what exactly did the IRS take?
In the 10 hours, they copied all the information on the stores computers. They copied all of the stores point of sale information and copied his acquisition records. They took 13 years worth of 4473 forms.
What are 4473 forms? The forms are a record of purchases. 4473’s are for background checks and if a gun is involved in a crime. These records are kept for 20 years or more. These forms contain zero, repeat zero, financial information. The warrant didn’t list the 4473’s.
Why does the IRS want these forms
This store generates approximately 2000 of these 4473 forms per year. They took 13 years of these forms. The government now has record of thousands of gun purchases by American citizens. Van Hoose is fighting to get these forms back. Why does our government want these forms? 4473 forms only contain gun purchase information.
There is no federal gun registry. Federal law prohibits a national gun registry. A gun registry would not stop or solve crimes. Criminals don’t get their guns legally. Biden is working hard to get around laws preventing a gun registry.
This administration is using anything and everything possible to get around the law preventing a registry.
The Biden Administration is weaponizing our government
We hear our government is weaponized. DOJ, FBI, and IRS are all accused of being weaponized against Americans. There is no denying that there is a 2 tier justice system in the United States.
The government is now using the IRS to go after Americans. Our government wants 87,000 new armed IRS agents. You seriously don’t find that odd. The IRS took record of thousands of Americans who legally bought guns. Again, the IRS did this. Again, a heavily armed IRS did this. There is no financial information on these forms. The “revenue” in IRS is misplaced.
Supposedly, the government would use these new agents to audit the wealthy. If they were to audit every single person that made over a million dollars a year, it would require 25,000 agents. What are the other 62,000 agents going to be doing?
