BATFE appointment

The NRA just released a statement saying they are strongly opposed to Andrew Traver being appointed to head the BATFE. They rightly point out that he is tied to anti gun organizations and has been involved in deliberate deceptions regarding firearms in common use and protected by the Second Amendment.

Sebastian elaborates further on some of these same points.

Say Uncle says, “We don’t need a guy from Chicago running an agency that deals with guns. We need Cletus and Bubba who like to blow stuff up.” But I disagree.

I’m in alignment with Rob who says, “There is no need for the United States to have the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice BATFE.

Does it really matter who the head of the Bureau of Political Speech and Book Censorship is? Or how about the Bureau of Blacks, Jews, and Homosexuals? The answer is a very vigorous, “No!”

As long as the BATFE is a regulatory and enforcement agency instead of government surplus distribution center it doesn’t matter. The political goals and fight remains the same regardless of who the head is.

The entire organization should be abolished and most of the people involved with the organization, it’s formation, and funding prosecuted.

  1. Amen! Terminate the agency, give the tasks to the FBI and repeal most of the illogical and useless gun control laws.

  2. In an ideal world, it would matter a lot who runs BATFE. Picking the best locations for the the government auctions of all BATFE property would be an important task.

  3. Dustydog,

    I disagree. Just put everything on eBay and have things either shipped directly to your door or you pick them up at their current location.

  4. “The entire organization should be abolished and most of the people involved with the organization, it’s formation, and funding prosecuted.”

    But that would mean there would be justice in America. And when it comes to a federal organzation that word does not exist. Except in some distorted parody when its the .gov versus the people when they go after individuals because they want to.

    If the ATF, FBI and local PD’s were not given special immunity when they murder in cold blood, and rape children, and commit other acts that we would go to prison for decades while they get a free pass this crap would stop overnight. But that would again mean there is justice in America. Well there is justice, for some. Just not you and me.
