I'm thinking the booze was flowing over at the ATF, or is it BATFE, or is it Violent Crime Bureau, when the focus group came up with this doozy. Trying to rebrand themselves into something they are NOT. Very few "A" alcohol cases (why?), very few "T' cases (why?) and they're getting their BUTTocks slapped over "F" Fast & Furious. So that leaves "E" and they've probably found a way to screw that up too. So really they are the "Bureau of Nothing Except Screwing with your American Rights of Firearm Ownership," AKA "BONES ARFO."
ATF Keeps Its Name, but Adds a New One - Law Blog - WSJ
The agency’s current name is something of an anachronism because it brings fewer than a hundred alcohol and tobacco cases a year. And its reputation as a firearms regulator took a hit because of the Fast and Furious scandal, the subject of a new report from the Justice Department’s inspector general.
