What’s the problem?  The ATF can and does share trace information with other federal and local agencies.

In point of fact, the hue and cry for public access to this extremely sensitive information is so that tort lawyers (you know: the weasel-leeches that are the heaviest contributors to the Democrat Party) and crazed Mayors (Bloomberg and Daley) can sue firearms manufacturers and dealers out of business.  It is a stated goal of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns to do so.

As far as the nomination of Traver to head ATF is concerned, he has long been associated with the International Association of Chiefs of Police, which in turn is something like a tool of the Joyce Foundation, a 900 million dollar tax free foundation that aims, among other things, to completely eliminate private citizen ownership of guns.  Any question about why anyone interested in exercising Second Amendment rights would oppose his promotion to head of ATF?
