New ATF Chief

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) hasn't had a full-time director in more than six years. But as part of his gun control mission, Obama has nominated B. Todd Jones, ATF's acting chief, for confirmation. Jones works at ATF part-time and also is the U.S. attorney general for Minnesota, the first African-American to hold the position in that state.
