Default John Ross for Director of BATFE in the Trump Administration

Folks, spread this as far and wide as you can if you think this would be a good thing for America.

Go to this thread and look for about the 10th post, from 12:26 AM January 2, 2017, from me:

John, keep us updated. I think that you would be a great choice for that position, and would enthusiastic support you.

We need a "Gun Guy" in this position to straighten out the mess at BATF.

I was kinda hoping that I would be appointed the new Director. I was planning to relocate the National Headquarters to the Minden/Gardnerville area here in Douglas County, Nevada.

In 1968 there was to be a 90 day amnesty period for people to register any unregistered NFA firearms. The registration period was opened and closed after only 30 days. What the heck happened to the last 60 days? I want the last 60 days opened for registration. It is only fair.

Is this the same John Ross that wrote "Unintended Consequences"?

I have a copy of "Unintended Consequences" that I treasure. It should be required reading for all gun owners and wanna-be politicians - as a lesson and a warning.

John Ross as head of the BATFE would go down as one of the most epic appointments in the history of this country. And if G.G. were alive, she'd agree.

Any word on this? I have heard that Trump may close down the BATFE. Either way good luck!

No, it isn't. I want the Hughes Amendment repealed, NOW! I want suppressors, SBRs, and SBSs, at a minimum, removed from the NFA if we can't get an outright repeal of the NFA of 1934!

"Be more like Canada!" the #gunsense morons whine. In Canada regular citizens can buy 12 gauge manually-operated shotguns with barrels as short 8.5 inches.

I'd love to have the Dominion Arms Chinese Remington 870 clone (or a REAL Remington 870) 12 gauge with 8.5 inch barrel and a 5 round box magazine with a 5 position AR stock. Watch the #gunsense morons go crazy! "But it's just like Canada!"

Yeah, like that would ever happen.
A head of a federal agency who actually has extensive practical knowledge and experience in the field that the agency is charged with regulating?
Come on, get real! What's next? Common sense in government?!?
