Reject Byron Todd Jones to run ATF

Byron Todd Jones is a lawyer and the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). He is also currently serving as the United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota.

Jones became acting director of the ATF on August 31, 2011, following the resignation of Kenneth E. Melson in the aftermath of the ATF gunwalking scandal. As part of his push to further radicalize gun control, Presumptive President Barack Obama nominated Jones to serve as permanent director of the ATF.

Jones is unfit to lead the perpetually scandal-plagued Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) because:
1 - His actions as Acting Director of the ATF in relation to the ongoing cover-up of Operation Fast and Furious are reprehensible and because
2 - His reported efforts to persecute Justice-Department whistle-blowers while serving as US Attorney for Minnesota are reprehensible.

With the submissive help of the US Senate, President Obama is steadily populating the federal bureaucracy with elitists who share his disdain for the Constitution, the Second Amendment, and the rest of the Bill of Rights.

In 2009, against the advice of Utah voters and in spite of Eric Holder's history of corruption and his avowed hatred of the Second Amendment and the Constitution, Utah's Senator Bob Bennett voted to confirm Eric Holder as Attorney General. That act was one of the reasons I voted to remove Bennett from the Senate. I will work for the defeat of any senator who makes the same mistake with B. Todd Jones.

Because there is no Constitutional authority for their existence, my first choice would be for the complete and immediate elimination of ATF and every law it enforces.

Failing that, I expect every member of the US Senate to honor his/her oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" by overwhelmingly rejecting the confirmation of Byron Todd Jones.
