"Alcohol, tobacco, and firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency."  That quote (whose origin slips my mind) was originally inspired by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, which is the government agency in charge of regulating those three things, and doing a notoriously poor job of it.

By way of John Lott, we learn that Texas has turned that saying into reality

Unfortunately, since that quote was first uttered, the agency which inspired it has gone through a reorganization.  They are now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

I can only hope that the wonderful little Texas convenience store will view the change in the agency's scope as an inspiration.
