Should ATF be shut down?

All they do is infringe on our 2nd amendment rights?

    The ATF should go back to doing what it was created to do, collect taxes.

    It's original purpose was not to regulate Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and enforce those regulations, it was to make sure the taxes were being paid on those products. That's why it works for the Department of the Treasury, not Department of Justice.

    It's the BATFE btw and that's not all they do but yes, they should be shut down.

    -too much bureaucracy in this nation. Every time a new government agency is created an angel tears off it's wings.

    You can't ring a bell fast enough to keep up.

    Edit; huh? whose the idiot who td'd me? Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Obviously guns aren't the only thing they deal with.......

    Why do I bother.

    They do not come after anything except illegal weapons on people who have no business with them in first place. You guns are save from them.

    that would screw-up the government's fake job-growth statistics.
