ATF job description

Kevin Cullen is from Boston so it’s no surprise he doesn’t have a clue about guns:

So, some cow chip-kickin’ senator from Louisiana doesn’t want Mike Sullivan, the US attorney in Boston, to become head of the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms because Sullivan wants to make it harder for people to get guns.

Um, isn’t that what the head of the ATF is supposed to do?

Let me spell it out for you Mr. Cullen, you’re from Boston so I understand the concepts are difficult for you.

The head of the ATF, just like all other government officials are required to uphold the constitution. Until such time as the Bill of Rights is declared null and void it is the NOT the job of the head of the ATF to make it harder for people to get guns. In fact the “Head of the ATF” should be actually be the CEO of a convenience store by the same name (actually you should tack the ‘E’ on to the end of it but I’m not going to complain if that market is handled by a separate chain that specializes).
