Feb 2010: 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.

This has been going on for a long time ow. The move to make disparate agencies personnel "peace officers" is constant. I recall it coming to the county regarding the DA and their desire to be peace officers. I think I am recalling this right. Also, welfare and some others. We were against it because we said just use the existing police/sheriff and we did not want to have a whole new passel of people in a generous retirement system. When I saw the Forest Service, Fish and Game, DEA, ATF FBI and State and Federal Parks arming their people (with less stringent rules of engagement than we have in Afghanistan) I knew we were in trouble.

I have been informed that federal agents are arresting people by the droves in the Plumas National Forest. Apparently they truly are using fascist tactics and have the protection of suspect judges. I heard the same thing about the CHP in Plumas and Lassen counties too. I have been a law enforcement supporter most of my life but the bottom line is there will be a lot of "police" to control the people and they will be armed quite well.

Does anyone know when the Federal government took possession of the State's National Guard units?
