IRS Grabbing Your Guns – Rumor Control

Posted on: May 1st, 2012

Reports have been circulating regarding S. 1813–a highway bill recently passed by the U.S. Senate.

The story goes that this bill would allow the IRS to seize your passport and your guns if you owe more than $50,000 in back taxes. The claims are totally bogus.

Although the bill is certainly long and complex, those who suggest that the bill is anti-gun are totally misreading it.

The only firearms-related language in this bill is part of a lengthy provision on hazardous material transportation. The language (see bottom of page 1320) makes clear that the personal transportation of firearms and ammunition isn’t regulated or prohibited by the federal hazardous material transportation laws, and commercial transportation isn’t prohibited by those laws.
