A reminder to self, and to others

January 13, 2013

Sue reminded me this morning by pointing out that she wasn’t aware of this — it’s not mentioned much in the news, but there is no actual director for the ATF. You know, the agency that handles guns and gun violence at the federal level. They have had only acting directors since 2006, because of a conspiracy of the NRA, their Republican operatives in Congress, and Senate obstructionism. So after being reminded of this state of affairs by the Melissa Harris-Perry show, I wrote about it today. The gun lobby on Daily Kos is getting to where they don’t attack everything that comes along; we’ll see about this one.
