    There is a difference between having guards and having a police force. Schools, hospitals etc etc should have guards. They are not there to enforce the law. They're there to guard people. Government regulatory agencies with policing powers on the other hand are trying to enforce regulations that they make. IMO that's like saying that Microsoft can have their own police force in which to enforce the terms of their TOS.

    Were are discussing what is. The BLM and school districts have police forces, Midrosoft does not.

    What order was BLM enforcing? BLM policy or a court order to vacate?

    No, actually we're talking about a lawmakers belief that regulatory agencies should not be armed because they are not a paramilitary unit.

    It was a court order based off of BLM policy. So both.

    As a regulatory agency they should not be going around toting guns.
    Living in Idaho, you are quite aware of the entrance of the Mexican cartels into our NPS, NFS and BLM lands to grow pot.
    As a website that avidly supports the common man carrying weapons that police do, do you want these BLM agents to face cartels unarmed ?

    So when BLM, NFS and NPS agents come across Cartels armed to the teeth, you want them to be unarmed,
    far less than the common man you believe should be armed to the teeth like SWAT teams and Militias .

    How many times must I say this in this thread? I fully support their right to carry guns in self defense. I do NOT support them having policing powers with full tactical SWAT teams. There is a WORLD of difference between the two.

    Wouldn't it actually cost more? Logistically, it would be ridiculous to have units in place in every location where they could conceivably be needed so unless one of these units just happened to be located in Nevada I'm assuming they had to be mobilized and transported a great distance to get there? Seems like it would be a hell of a lot less expensive to use local authorities.

    You're presuming local authorities have unlimited resources. That's not the case. It makes much more sense for the BLM to bring their own officers and leave the local PD to the mountain of work already before them. This is especially true in rural areas where the BLM could be utilizing nearly the entire on-duty police force for the majority of a day.

    It was a court order based off of BLM policy. So both.
    Almost every police force is becoming heavily armed and have sections that are military like. What if the sheriffs department geared up paramilitray style and went out there?

    Is the problem that police forces are becoming paramiltarized or that federal agencies have police forces?

    How many years should have gone by before action was taken on FEDERAL Lands?
    Which County and State law enforcement officials should have the policing powers on FEDERAL lands.

    Now, head back to the argument that this shouldn't be FEDERAL land .
