Utah lawmaker moves to disarm BLM, IRS, says ‘They’re not paramilitary units’

Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah, concerned about the armed agents that surrounded Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s property, introduced a bill 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 on the House floor on Tuesday, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. “They’re regulatory agencies. They’re not paramilitary units, and I think that concerns a lot of us.”

AMEN! Even the paramilitary is way too military for everyday patrol of citizens. I just wonder with a stand like this, how long before the Congressman has a mysterious accident

He is correct. However Obama has thrown the Constitution out the window.

The constitution is out the window but my gun is in my hand. That is where it will stay until the constitution is put back where it belongs.
