If passed, H.R. 4934, the Regulatory Agency Demilitarization Act would freeze weapon purchases to all federal agencies except those with traditional law enforcement responsibilities. The bill would require other agencies, such as the EPA and the Department of Education, to justify purchases of military-type weapons, training and body armor. Representative, Chris Stewart (R-Utah) says, “Not only is it overkill, but having these highly armed units within dozens of agencies is multiplicative, costly, heavy-handed, dangerous and destroys any sense of trust between citizens and the federal government.”

  1. I’ll screw this up but I’ll give it a try. Can some justify agencies like EPA, USDA, FDA and IRS needing guns to enforce their rules and regs, when the same government wants to take guns from the citizens.
    What’s wrong with this picture? Aren’t we kind f defining Tyranny here. If these agencies need guns fine, no problem. However when all of government is armed and the citizens are not does anyone see a problem. If government is gearing up while at the same time busting it’s ass to restrict citizen ownership and create national registries we should be asking, What’s the Agenda.

  2. @ Mc Ruger: My sentiment exactly. I can always count on Mc Ruger to sum up my thoughts and spare me the typing. Thanks.

    I’d also wish to highlight to folks the need to contact your representatives in support of H.R. 4934. This is in reference to the above High Powered Headline entitled – “House Bill to Freeze Weapon Purchases to Federal Agencies”.

    What it boils down to is smart legislation attempting to shut down the out-of-control growth of pseudo law enforcement like federal Inspector Generals as mentioned in another CTD article entitled – “Why Does the USDA Need Submachine Guns?” ; Which can be read here:

  3. God bless the Arizona Supreme Court.
    In other news:
    Looks like we’re in for another Zimmerman extravaganza in St. Louis. It would be nice if they could at least wait to find out what happened before they start the riots, looting and branding everyone a racist. . I guess any thing works when you look for a reason to be a victim.

    Bloomberg again. Anyone up to send a few buck to County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. to keep a socialist sheriff out of office. Bloomberg is getting to be a real pain.
