"Statism? It's the opposite of 'statism.' This is the privatization of a basic government function. Isn't this the stuff your libertarian wet dreams are made of?"
No, Travis, it isn't. This is government compelling private businesses to perform an act of law enforcement on its behalf. And, these businesses (and most everyone else) have already paid taxes to fund said government to perform this duty. Sounds like the opposite of libertarianism on both ends, to me.
