B. Todd Jones Resigns as ATF Director

btoddjonesAfter less than two years at the post, ATF Director B. Todd Jones has resigned, the agency announced on Friday.  Jones was the first ATF Director approved by Congress after a lengthy period from 2006 to 2013 in which a series of nominees failed to meet Congress’ criteria and the agency was rudderless.

So once again, ATF has no permanent leader.  This is not a good situation for the explosives industry.  Initiatives that would be beneficial to industry may now be held up because of uncertainty at the top.
