Why the ATF should and should not be disbanded

I realize this is a loaded question but there's a reason why it's relevant. There has been a lot of discussion about disbanding the ATF and it is worth having that discussion. However, the reason why I think we should disband the ATF isn't simply because of corruption. The CIA corrupted the ATF so if anything we should disband the CIA but that's a separate discussion.

The reason why I think the ATF should be abolished is because it has become an anti Second Amendment lobbyist group. I'm all for law enforcement. The ATF is supposed to enforce the law not lobby to change the law especially when those changes violate the Constitution which the ATF has sworn an oath to uphold. The flip side of the debate is pretty scary.

The Hill is reporting that "The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) should be abolished, because of its inability to enforce gun laws, according to a lengthy report from the left-leaning Center for American Progress. The FBI is better suited to crack down on gun violence, and should absorb the ATF’s agents, the report argues." AYFKM?

"The ATF is undercut by political limitations — from misguided congressional meddling to the failure to confirm a permanent director — that make it difficult to enforce the nation’s gun laws, according to the report." Oh the cunning plan of the evil one.

Here we have two polar opposite reasons for disbanding the ATF. One is because the ATF have broken their oath and are enemies of the Second Amendment. The other is because they don't have enough power to destroy the Second Amendment completely. Can we now see why the CIA infiltrated the ATF? They have an agenda and that agenda has nothing to do with keeping their oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic.
