But, because Rep. Chris Stewart’s bill includes a command that an independent body ferret out the truth about the alleged pandemic of federal SWAT teams, it is probably worth passing into law. Stewart’s “Regulatory Agency Demilitarization Act,” introduced Monday, carries some baggage of its own.

Chris Stewart, R-Utah, introduced legislation on Monday that would prohibit non-law enforcement agencies in the federal government from buying high-power firearms or weaponry as part of a response to the April standoff between the Bureau of Land Management and rancher Cliven Bundy. Stewart says there’s no reason for regulatory agencies to have paramilitary units like the ones present when the BLM, under a court order, attempted to round up cattle on federal lands.
