Who would you propose to be the next ATF Director?

Who would you propose to be the next ATF Director?

No one, disband the ATF.


ShinjiTakeyama

This really is the only real good answer. What purpose does the ATF actually serve as a benefit to America? Anybody?


chubbyprimate

Animal control?


ShinjiTakeyama

You...god dammit lol

Man that would be the dream and his background and credentials would certainly match.


chase-michael

Someone that recognizes that alcohol and tobacco kill far more people than firearms and is willing to focus the agency accordingly.


velocibadgery

Alcohol and tobacco are legal, we don't need an agency for that. What we need to do is get rid of the atf.


AnonymousGrouch

That agency is the TTB. ATF hasn't had much to do with alcohol and tobacco since 2003.


velocibadgery

So even less reason for it to exist.


chase-michael

Firearms are not legal?


velocibadgery

Really? Of course they are. I was directly addressing your comment about alcohol and tobacco.


chase-michael

My point is if the ATF exists to protect us why don't they focus more energy on alcohol and tobacco as they kill more people? They won't because they are not there to protect us they are there to reguster and take away guns.


angryxpeh

Alcohol and tobacco haven't been ATF's responsibility for almost 20 years. They are handled by the Tax and Trade Bureau (ttb.gov). ATF only focuses on firearms and explosives, nothing else.

Vermin Supreme. He'll take our guns and give us better guns.


innocentbabies

I like my guns. Even the bad ones. I'll gladly take the better ones, too, though.


TacticoolFudd

I have a few I wouldn't mind trading for better ones


DuodenumofDeath

Me. I will enact a ton of gun laws. For example, every household must have at least 2 fully automatic weapons and own at least 5 noise suppression devices.

Sonofsunaj

Name one good reason for the ATF to be separate from the FBI. They used to fall under the department of Treasury because the point was that they enforced taxes, that made sense to a degree. Now they they are just a part of the DOJ, might as well integrate the office with the existing federal law enforcement department. Might as well move the DEA over while we are at it.

Ryan or Colion Noir.


PewPewJedi

Me. I’ll do right by y’all. I’ll just reinterpret the legal definitions of suppressors, SBRs and machine guns beyond all recognition (as is the precedent for that agency), and let you all have fun.


PromptCritical725

922(o) exempts machine guns transferred under the authority of a government agency right? Sounds to me like a Form 1/4 with an ATF signature constitutes a transfer under the authority of the ATF...


PewPewJedi

As new head of the ATF, I will form a new department and hire hundreds of new agents whose sole job is to sign those forms, with a mandated turnaround time of 72 hours or less.


HFX

My dream ATF candidate. Someone who is for ever adult American having the right to drink, smoke, and have whatever arms they want. Someone who won't sell guns to cartels. Someone who will get products recalled that are abnormally dangerous: Taurus shake fire, cigarettes with stuff that is not tobacco or safe flavorings, alcohol with too much methanol in it, etc.
