This might work
"'Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' isn't just a name -- it's a lifestyle," said ATF Director Roger Smythe. "If you enjoy these three things -- either individually or, if you're like me, all at once -- then this is the government agency for you."
So someone who violated the constitution is going to teach at a law school? This makes about as much sense as having a bank robber be the guard at Fort Knox.

It may not make sense, but it seems to be the way of the world. Not saying it's right, but some lawyers are the shadiest people I know and often push the boundaries of the law to win their case.

Ah, but the ATF isn't about enjoying those things... it's about preventing the citizenry from doing so. If you like invading private homes and shooting peoples dogs, THEN the ATF is the job for you.

Anon: You have it all wrong.
It is the job for you, if you like doing all those things at once. Only the ATF is allowed to be complete irresponsible morons and mix all three. Us unwashed masses don't get to, sure, but it's fine if you do it behind a shield.
