    They've yet to publish the text of the bill so I only hope it's one I can support. But judging by the name of the bill, sounds like there are some elected reps that are listening.

    The ATF has been bounced around to different parts of the Gov. a couple times. This doesn't sound a whole lot different than when they went from the Treasury to Justice. That said, I could support abolishing it, but not so sure about just transferring the same wagon load of crap to different departments. Doesn't seem like that would solve anything, and might make it worse.

    I'm reserving judgement as to whether this is good or bad. This could go either way depending on how it's split and what happens once it's split.
