Obama's ATF nominee gets Senate hearing

FILES - In this Jan. 16, 2013, file photo, acting Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Director B. Todd Jones talks to Attorney General Eric Holder in the South Court Auditorium at the White House in Washington, after President Barack Obama signed executive orders outlining about proposals to reduce gun violence. Five months after Obama called on lawmakers to approve his choice to lead the ATF, the Senate is considering the nomination. When Jones appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday he will be just the second ATF nominee to face congressional questioning since the Senate was given authority to approve the agency’s chief in 2006.
