President Obama once famously told his supporters about political opponents, “If they bring a knife to the fight, you bring a gun.” The gun turned out to be the Internal Revenue Service (“Outraged GOP: It’s time to audit the IRS; targeting of conservative groups called ‘chilling,’” Web, May 12).

Anyone who thinks the targeting of conservative groups was instituted by low-level IRS employees in Cincinnati needs to seek professional help. One has to remember that when Mr. Obama ran for the Senate, his campaign illegally obtained the sealed divorce records of his opponent. That was the gun in Chicago. The IRS is the new gun in Washington.
