But we're supposed to trust the IRS.

Yeah, right.
But other staffers rehired had documented conduct issues from previous tenures at the IRS, including purposefully not filing their taxes, wrongly authorizing taxpayer information and lying on official forms. Of those rehired, roughly one in five then went on to have further performance problems.
But the IRS insists it's all good.  After all, you don't expect IRS personnel to be under the same rules and penalties as the commoners, do you?

Used to know someone who'd been a auditor at the IRS, and she listed some of the rules they worked under, which were pretty strict; apparently they don't bother with such anymore.

A British police force has apologised after an officer told a newsagent to hand over details of customers who purchased copies of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.

Wiltshire police confirmed that one of their officers visited a newsagent in Corsham, Wiltshire, to ask for the names of four customers who ordered the commemorative “survivors’ issue” of the magazine.

The incident came to light when Anne Keat, 77, who bought the special issue from that newsagent, wrote a letter to the Guardian to warn people that wearing badges emblazoned with je suis Charlie may attract police interest.

But WE'RE the racists and (fill in the blank)...
"Allentown is the third largest city in the state," he said. "It is claiming a renaissance for wealthy, white individuals who wish to be safe. I believe the mayor has a responsibility to join the fight against this law."
You'll  also note that city officials being forced to obey state law is them 'caving to the gun lobby'.

Someone throws the 'Only cops are trained enough' line at you, send them to Miguels' place.
...Indeed, some of the best practical shooters I have known are cops. . . . BUT . . . . 

. . .I cannot count the number of LEOs from every level who have been brought out to a match for the first time by a buddy and simply STB — they bitch about taking our 30-minute new-shooter indoc (they go home if they refuse), they are unable safely to handle their weapon administratively, they are unable to clear a malf (and I have seen plenty of neglect-caused malfs in neglected service weapons), they are unable to reload, they are unable to draw their weaposn with speed and efficiency; they are unable to employ cover, they are unable to hit the target standing still, let alone while moving.
