The defunding police goes against gov gaining total control.
The police are the front line Gov will use to remove guns and civil liberties. It's what the police have historically been used for.
You'll notice no defunding of fed LE. Federal LE will be the only force available to use to try to confiscate guns and enforce gov decrees.
The military will not allow itself to be used to conquer it's own people.
NG will only be involved until it realizes what it is being used for and them by and large quit.
That's the reason every federal agency right down to the dept of education is armed and have their own swat or assault teams. In order to try to build a federal police force capable of securing control of the citizenry.
It's far from being able too is the ONLY reason things like forcible gun confiscation have not been implemented.
Okay I guess I should be more specific. First / NG or Federal agency the affect is basically the same. For years now I've been hearing discussions of federalizing the police. Local / decentralized police departments offer too many opportunities for deviation and independent thinking. A federal agency of some type, with central control would be enabled by de-funding local departments to the point that they become ineffective and require assistance. Just a silly question but what happens in the states where they are actively passing laws contrary to federal law (call them non compliance laws, if you will) if the police get federalized in any way?You got that Azz backwards. If a government is trying to get the people under control, they hire more police. (Brown shirts, SS, Gestapo, OVRA, KGB, Kempeitai, for a few.)
