Why hasen't our president nominated a leader for the ATF .......IN SIX YEARS !
The ATF lacks a leader entirely ! Yet liberals blame guns ? Pres. Obamas form of gun control ls to have the media post legal gon owners names and addresses in N.Y state ! Why don't we do that nationwide ? Kind of makes ME think that this administrration lacks common sense at all !
Byron Todd Jones is director of the ATF which does have a leader and a deputy director. Given that the whole comment seems pretty baseless.
Josak is correct that Bryon Jones is acting director of the ATF but there is more to this story as well.
ATF directors have to receive Senate confirmation, this has been in place since 2006. Unfortunately the Senate hasn't confirmed anyone to become director so they have had acting ones since then.
It also looks like you must have missed where President Obama had made a nomination back in November 2010. Obama nominated Andrew Traver to the post but the confirmation hearings haven't taken place yet in the Senate; it's only been over two years...I'm sure they will get to it soon.
Here is a list of the ATF's staff: http://www.atf.gov/about/executive-staff/ Stating they lack a leader is inaccurate because they do have acting leadership.
Since you want to blame this administration for this issue I thought it might be a good idea to state that Obama hasn't been President for six years yet, it has only been about four.
And given todays public and political hysteria about guns lately , It actuallly might help IF yours and MY President could take positive and creative actions to improve the leadership of probably one of THE most important post in todays system !
