Ahead of GOP Debate Rand Paul Shoots IRS Tax Code With an AR-15 (Town Hall)

Simi Valley, Calif. - Ahead of the second GOP primary debate Wednesday night at the Reagan Library, Senator Rand Paul hit the gun range to shoot the 80,000 page long IRS tax code with an AR-15 (a modified model to meet strict California firearms law), a 1911 9mm pistol and a semi-automatic shotgun.

"We don't have like a grenade launcher?" Paul said to reporters at the range, adding that shooting was a good way to relieve some stress before the debate. "I like getting out and shooting, as you can see I'm a novice but at least I hit the target."

"I've shot probably 10 times in my life. I try not to pretend I'm something that I'm not but I do like to go shooting when I'm out. I've shot skeet with friends and done target practice with folks before. We've done a couple of fundraisers at ranges before," Paul said.
