Default ATF head to resign over Mexican gun controversy

Not sure if this belongs here or the political section.

That's good news. Sadly, it doesn't end with him.

I bet he is a patsy for the Dem's who probably planned this from the very beginning to be used as anti-gun propaganda for the coming election. Good that it backfired.

They are wanting to replace Kenneth Melson with Andrew Traver the biggest anti-gun/anti-rights ass wipe in the world.

Holder should step down too.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

Yeah, I'd agree with him being the fall guy.
There always is one. Then everything is rosy because "We fired the bad guy." OK, so they claim he "stepped down".
This junk never ends.

The fact that Melson was kept on so long as acting head makes you wonder if maybe it wasn't the plan all along to use him as the high-level sacrifice if/when Gunwalker became public knowledge.

Holder almost certainly did know about this and he had a plausible interest in Gunwalker (Fast & Furious) going forward: it gave him the ammunition to call for even tighter gun control laws.

What SHOULD happen (but won't) is Holder should go to prison and the ATF should be dissolved.
