Will 'gun control' pushers decry BATFE leadership being made part-time position?

Here's an interesting aspect of Mr. Jones' appointment:
Jones will continue to serve in the capacity of U.S. Attorney when he assumes the role of ATF acting director on Aug. 31, 2011.
In other words, President Obama's Department of Justice, under Attorney General Eric Holder, is making leadership of the BATFE a part-time position. That's the kind of move that one might think would draw howls of protest from the forcible citizen disarmament lobby.

The Brady Campaign, some might remember, in what seems to have been their first acknowledgment of 'Project Gunwalker,' back in March, blamed the debacle on the fact that the BATFE did not have a permanent director . . . [More]
That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

Oh, and if you could spare a digg?

I want to know where Holder gets the authority to appoint anyone to anything. I thought the Prez was supposed to appoint the head of ATF with approval from the Senate. Now it's a part time job? who's bright idea was that?

Actually,I haven't seen anywhere it has been specified under whose authority Jones' appointment was made. It might have been Obama's decision. It's pretty certain that Obama at least concurs with the appointment (and acting director) doesn't need Senate confirmation).
