BATFE To Be Disbanded?
At last some good news from the Republicans and, maybe, the Trump administration: A congressman has introduced legislation that would disband the scandal ridden Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Good news for libertarians, anyway, as most of us feel those substances needn't have their own police force to begin with.
A hiring freeze will take place first, then current agents will be reassigned to existing federal agencies such as FBI and- although not mentioned in the article-probably the U.S. Marshalls and such.
Finally some progress in downsizing government. Now we'll see if what Reagan said is true: "... a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!"
Let the battle cry for this be...Remember Waco! Let's let the downsizing begin!
