Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah, concerned about the armed agents that surrounded Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s property, is mulling a measure to cut funding for any “paramilitary units” that work for the Bureau of Land Management, the Internal Revenue Service and other federal regulatory agencies.
“There are lots of people who are really concerned when the BLM shows up with its own SWAT team,” he said, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. “They’re regulatory agencies. They’re not paramilitary units, and I think that concerns a lot of us.”
The sooner the better. There is absolutely no reason these federal agencies can't call on the local sheriff for assistance if it's needed in a local issue.
Honestly, the militarization of federal agencies is, in my lowly opinion, a part of the progressive plan to create a domestic military force that they can use against those they seek to control or intimidate.
Sounds crazy in America, but just take a short look at history, and there are multiple examples of hard leftists like Obama doing exactly that in other countries, many of which never expected that something like this could happen in their own lands. I therefore predict that there will be strong resistance from this administration to any effort to disarm the agencies. Should be interesting to watch, if this Utah Congressman can somehow get himself past "mulling" over this and actually doing the work needed to get such a law through.
