What he doesn't tell you

The local Chicago TV piece that Dear Leader's nominee for ATF Director would no doubt prefer you didn't view:

What Andrew Traver doesn't disclose in this execrable propaganda piece is that new sales of fully automatic weapons have already been banned in the U.S. since 1986 and that used ones, if and when they become available, are only sold by specially licensed gun dealers to citizens who must meet stringent requirements.  Our local Class 3 dealer has a Kalashnikov AK-47 similar to the one demonized in the story available for sale.

For 15,000 dollars.  Hardly within the budget of your average gangbanger, even if they could pass the background check required to purchase such an item.

This interview alone should disqualify the lying weasel Traver from assuming his nominated position.

Notice that the blurb demonstrates how "uncontrollable" the AK is by allowing a small, female reporter to fire it from well below the shoulder. As if the Red Army used them for decades, and the Russians and most of the world still do, because you can't use them effectively in full auto mode.

In doing so, they more or less risked injuring the reporter and others in the area. These are the guys working for gun SAFETY?
