    From THE PATRIOT POST:

    Second Amendment: Gun-Grabbing Fox Picked to Head ATF Henhouse

    In another example of the "Chicago Way," last week Barack Obama tabbed Andrew Traver, currently special agent in charge of the Chicago division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (better known by the ATF acronym), as the bureau's permanent head. "You might as well put an arsonist in charge of the fire department," quipped NRA spokesman Chris Cox.

    While the gun grabbers at the Brady Center applaud the choice, Second Amendment advocates are predictably aghast. They criticize Traver because of his ties to the gun-control advocating Joyce Foundation and work during a 2007 conference on reducing gun violence sponsored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, another fervently anti-gun organization. The IACP report includes a call for legislation to allow federal health and safety oversight of the firearms industry. What Second Amendment?

    Others question Traver's lack of senior-level executive experience, but when has that ever stopped anyone in Washington? The Senate may get a chance to question and confirm Traver, who would take over an agency laboring under acting leaders since 2006, unless Obama decides to use him as yet another recess appointment. Certainly Traver would fit right in with the rest of Executive Branch Washington in an era where the president relies on regulation, as opposed to legislation, to enact his agenda.

    This, as predicted, comes under the "shoot ourselves in the foot" heading.

    Well - he sure as hell hasn't cleaned up Chicago! How many murders and shootings a day do they have?

    This appointment, though, shows how desperatly we need to get rid of Obama and his Gestapo. I'm not sure this country can hold out another two years with his lying to your face style of presidency. This baboon and his crowd need to be impeached simply for lying when he took the oath of office. Remember him saying "to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God". What a LIAR!

    What many of us are expecting are more bureaucratic rules and new "interpretations" of existing law in order to provide more restrictions.

    Second what Brian said... at least the NRA will be there filing law suit after law suit to stop this non-sense until the next election...
