Ross: What does it mean for a gun grabber to be sworn into the ATF?

Former American lawyer Steve Dettelbach was sworn in as the new head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. He is the first permanent director in seven years. It took so long because previous appointments were scuttled over fears that the ATF was run by an arms thief.

And that’s also what some bands called Dettelbach. “Arrest gun thief Steve Dettelbach,” the American Firearms Association said. “Biden names aspiring arms thief Steve Dettelbach,” Red Voice Media said.

What I don’t understand is why they find the seizure of weapons threatening, because that’s the job of the ATF. Seize the weapons of the bad guys before they can use them against the good guys.

And Dettelbach seems determined to do so because he knows what it’s like to be a target, “as a prosecutor and as someone who raises Jewish children. As a religious minority in this country.

“I spent time in Pittsburgh talking to people at the Tree of Life Synagogue. When I was a United States Attorney, the largest mosque in my state was burned down. An African American church was burned down. .

“We caught a guy in Toledo, someone who had shot three people and killed one and found him in Toledo with 18 guns, 40,000 rounds, a Kevlar vest and surveillance evidence that he watched and followed the leader of the Jewish organization. Community federation and head of the NAACP in Detroit,” Dettelbach continued. “Fortunately, the Joint Terrorism Task Force caught this person.”

I grabbed this person and presumably grabbed their guns because a person like that should have their guns caught.

In the case of the shooting at Greenwood Park Mall in Indianapolis, a mall that had a no-gun rule.

By the way, I wish that rule had been enforced against the shooter…and I’m glad it wasn’t enforced against the guy who shot the shooter.

This is the key to a good gun seizure, to only seize them from people who cannot be trusted.

But here’s an even better solution, for gun owners and trusted gun dealers, to keep a firm grip on their guns and not let them be seized or bought by anyone they can’t personally trust. with a lethal weapon.

Despite all this talk of government arms thieves, the ATF has 2,700 special agents to cover the entire country. Even if they had the addresses and daily schedules of all the bad guys with guns in America, they couldn’t begin to grab their guns. That’s why it’s up to you to decide.
