    Just thought it was interesting and I'd share. I wonder who will take his place.

    Good riddance and a hope many more of O'slimey's followers to be shown the door or street.

    Just Washington D.C.'s version of "Musical chairs" combined with "Tag...you're it!"; except in these cases no one really loses their chair, typically resurfacing at some other Federal agency or else they end up getting some lucrative position in the private sector.

    The problem isn't the director, it's the whole bureau

    Is he being ushered out because he caved on the M855 ban?

    I doubt it. He has been acting director since 2011. Maybe almost 4 years is long enough to work for low pay in a government job.

    No doubt the NFL pays better than the Feds. Considering that he already had a job lined up when he announced his resignation I suspect he left on his own.

    It starts with the director. The whole thing needs to be shaked up. It needs to be reworked from the top down. The AFT, IRS, and EPA have way too much power over us.

    That's my point. ATF getting a new director doesn't fix the problem. Abolishing ATF will. All they really worry abiut anymore is firearms, and that's not something I want a government agency worrying about.

    Then how will firearm sales work, if no one is trying to verify if the attempted purchaser should legally be allowed to purchase a firearm? No ATF, no 4473.

    They're just accessing a database on sale decisions. More the clerks and admin types who do that to DOJ, FBI, whoever. We really could probably reduce overhead dramatically by consolidating federal law enforcement into 2-3 agencies instead of the sprawling mess we have now anyway.
