As part of President Barack Obama’s 23-point gun control plan, he nominated Minnesota U.S. Attorney B. Todd Jones–who currently doubles right now as the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives–to be the ATF director.
Jones was personally a part of the high-ranking Department of Justice unit that first met on October 26, 2009, to create the new DOJ policy that was used to justify “gunwalking” in Operation Fast and Furious. In Fast and Furious, the ATF “walked” roughly 2,000 firearms into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels. That means through straw purchasers the agency allowed sales to happen and didn’t stop the guns from being trafficked, even though they had the legal authority to do so and were fully capable of doing so.
Todd Jones was part of the scheming anti-gun, anti-rights murderous conspirators who drew this thing up. And now, they want to make him the head of the ATF.
Obama nominated Jones after he said in his gun control plan that the “ATF has not had a confirmed director for six years. There is no excuse for leaving the key agency enforcing gun laws in America without a leader. It is time for Congress to confirm an ATF director.”
The left is insidious, and never relents. They murder US federal agents and hundreds of Mexicans with their schemes to undermine the US Constitution, and when they’re found out, they double down. We already saw Feinstein two years ago calling for more gun control because of the ATF’s murders. These Ruling Class tyrants get caught in the middle of crimes and blame the citizen for their actions.
It’d be like a beaten wife walking in on her cheating abusive husband, and the husband blaming her for cheating, and beating her more for it.
