“Don’t ask why I need an AR-15. Ask why an IRS agent needs one”

“Why does anyone need an AR-15 rifle?” is a popular meme. It’s sometimes explained that “need” doesn’t have to be known because of the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights supports gun ownership, and “It’s the Bill of Rights, not the Bill of Needs.”

In August 2022, there was much discussion that 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents would be hired, and that the IRS was purchasing firearms.

“DON’T ASK WHY I NEED AN AR-15. ASK WHY AN IRS AGENT NEEDS ONE” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by Clay Wallis on August 13, 2022. “Don’t ask why I need an AR-15. Ask why an IRS agent needs one” was posted on Twitter by Common Sense Evaluation on August 14, 2022. “Don’t ask why I need an AR 15, ask why an IRS agent needs one!!” was posted on Twitter by Catherine Vail on August 14, 2022.


Wikipedia: AR-15 style rifle
An AR-15 style rifle is any lightweight semi-automatic rifle based on the Colt AR-15 design.

The original AR-15 itself is a scaled-down derivative of Eugene Stoner’s AR-10 design. The then Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation division ArmaLite sold the U.S. Patent 2,951,424 and trademarks to Colt’s Manufacturing Company in 1959. After most of Colt’s patents for the Colt AR-15 expired in 1977, many firearm manufacturers began to produce copies of the Colt AR-15. Despite the patents expiring, Colt retained the trademark of the AR-15 and is the sole manufacturer able to label their firearms as AR-15.

The Federal Assault Weapons Ban restricted the sale of the Colt AR-15 and some derivatives in the United States from 1994 to 2004, although it did not affect rifles with fewer listed features.
