A month before Oklahoma City, the atf cut Howe off, concluding she was unstable, and a pipeline into Elohim City dried up.
The nearest atf office is 32 miles away, in downtown Columbus.
The atf said he had applied for a Federal Firearms License, but was rejected for violating the federal Gun Control Act.
B. Todd Jones is a former Marine, the U.S. attorney for Minnesota, and the acting director of the atf.
In May, congressional investigators released a Fast and Furious briefing paper from the atf.
Beggs testified that Holmes purchased the guns and ammunition legally and cleared the background checks conducted by the atf.
Voth asked if the atf could arrest him for fraudulently accepting public assistance when he was spending such huge sums.
atf would only see these guns again after they turned up at a crime scene.
Perhaps an official director solely focused on the work of the agency is what the atf needs to get back on track.
Needless to say the acting head of the atf is in trouble over this.
