News is coming in that B. Todd Jones is stepping down from his position as the Director of the ATF. Jones has been in the job since 2011 when he took over in the aftermath of the Fast and Furious debacle. Among his shining achievements was an attempt to give local sherriffs the ability to ban legal (if NFA regulated) firearms in their jurisdictions, as well as proposing a ban on some of the most popular ammunition in the United States. Rumor has it . . .
that he’s headed to a top spot at the National Football League. It’s too early to tell if the old maxim that the devil you know is better than the one you don’t applies here, but you can bet your bottom samolian that whomever the Obamanauts nominate as a replacement will be no more firearms friendly than was B. Todd. The only potential saving grace is that the Senate, which will confirm any new ATF top dawg, is now in Republican hands. If that means anything.
Watch this space.
