Rand Paul introduces bill to completely end the draft

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has introduced a bill to eliminate Selective Service and get rid even of any contingent conscription, according to the Washington Examiner story by Jacqueline Klimas,   This would come in the form of an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.

This contradicts proposals in the House and Senate to make women eligible for the draft if it is ever reinstated (force them to register).  But the House proposal had been stripped before being sent to the full House.
