Last week, Democrats in the House passed a bill to ban Americans from buying AR-15s, calling the AR-15 a “weapon of war.”
They exempted IRS from the ban.
This week they will add tens of thousands of IRS agents to the budget.
Meanwhile they posted this:
: "Two law enforcement sources briefed on the matter tell NBC News a man entered an FBI field office today in Cincinnati, Ohio and fired a nail gun at law enforcement personnel. The male then held up an AR-15 style rifle before fleeing in a vehicle."
If a guy can just mosey into an FBI building, shoot a nail gun, brandish an AR-15, and then flee safely — do we really still believe arming school teachers will work?
NBC News: The man armed with an AR-15-style rifle who fired a nail gun into an FBI building in Cincinnati has died after a police pursuit and standoff.
Two officials familiar with the matter identified the suspect as Ricky Walter Shiffer and said he was at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
I bet it was easier for him to get the AR-15 than the nailgun.
To all the gun nuts screaming: "haha he said ak-15. That's not a real gun."
Yeah, probably meant AR-15.
Also, AK-15 is a thing developed by Ratnik. It's been public for like half a decade. Have a good day.
All MAGA are Mother Fuckers and should be called such. The time for kindness ended when a dude laughed about children being killed by an AR-15.
The guy who attacked the FBI today? The nail gun and AR-15 guy? Yup, he was also there on J6. Are you surprised? (HT: @ryanjreilly
Trump and Republican rhetoric incited a MAGAt, who participated in Jan 6, to try to storm the FBI field office in Cincinnati. He was armed with an AR-15. He was shot dead after being confronted and trying to flee.
Silence from Republican lawmakers. You are inciting violence!!!
A man armed with an AR-15 rifle and a freakin nail gun attempted to breach a Cincinnati FBI building.
I’m sure it’s completely unrelated to the FBI raiding Mar-A-Lago.
Nobody would be so stupid as to defend Donald Trump’s honor like this, right? 🥴
The Associated Press @AP
Democrat Beto O'Rourke responded to a heckler at a campaign stop with an expletive after the Texas gubernatorial candidate heard a laugh while criticizing the ease with which the Uvalde elementary school gunman legally purchased an AR-15-style rifle. https://t.co/HlC6iS4JYA
Abbott's groupies are showing up at Beto's townhalls carrying AR-15's. They've smeared motor oil on the steps outside the venues. They have heckled him relentlessly. Thru it, Beto has stayed cool/calm but when one of them laughed about dead children, he had enough!
UPDATE: The man, identified as 42-year-old Ricky Shiffer, fired a nail gun at the building before fleeing in his car and later firing on cops with an AR-15.
The guy with the AR-15, body armor, and a nail gun (?!) who attacked the FBI office in Cincinnati is one of the Jan. 6 MAGA lunatics. This is terrorism, egged on by the @GOP
and Trump cultists. He's now joined the Ashli Babbitt Terror Cell. But there are lots more out there. https://t.co/9c3S94kHmI
Man armed with AR-15 style rifle shoots into FBI Cincinnati building with a nail gun and flees, leading to interstate standoff https://t.co/22CusE7JbI
So I’m guessing #MAGA nation really thinks there’s going to be some 78,000 IRS clerks, examiners, and auditors sitting in cubicles, going over tax returns, with a pistol on their hip and an AR-15 in the corner: https://t.co/6s3If59nO3
Rabbi Bradd Boxman discussed his conversation with former Florida Governor #RickScott on citizens owning AR-15s after the #Parkland massacre. "But I did ask him and I said, 'why in God's name does any citizen need an AR-15?'" Rabbi Boxman said.
The armed man who breach the FBI’s office was shot & killed by police after he fled the scene,leading to an hourlong standoff this afternoon,Ohio State Patrol said. The man wearing body armor was shot after he raised his AR-15 at police. He also took part at the 1/6 insurrection https://t.co/h6AKY45PIu
Karma comes quick and sometimes, if we’re lucky, it happens in real time. This is proof the arc of justice is still in full effect. Truth Social is a INCEL hangout for cosplaying Mel Gibson in the Patriot, with and AR-15 and ED.
Another idiot that legally walked into a gun shop and bought an AR-15. They are a dime a dozen. Gotta love those Republican laws.
You ok with IRS coming after Americans with AR 15’s? Are you an idiot?
Do you have any idea how stupid you look from these words? A man who was at the Capitol on J6 took an AR-15 to an FBI office in OH today, intent on killing agents. You need to issue a public apology for this reckless, ignorant statement. Do better.
"It may be funny to you mother f*cker, but it's not funny to me." Beto O'Rourke shuts down man who laughed about AR-15 used in Uvalde
#Texas if you don’t put @BetoORourke
in as Gov and kick that POS @GregAbbott_TX
out you are plain stupid https://t.co/XUrC2YOLZ5
Hey Cancun. What's up? Have you heard about your brother with AR-15 who tried to kill FBI in Cincinnati?
@IKintobor @AP @BetoORourke
As I mentioned they are truly quite different. I think lots of people think these guns are more deadly than others. That’s not the case. I’ve linked several times the info on the AR 15.
