The Senate voted on Tuesday, July 12th to confirm Steve Dettelbach as President Biden’s nominee for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Dettlebach’s confirmation in the wake of high-profile mass shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde,  and Highland Park — is a victory for both the Gun Violence Prevention movement and the Biden administration.

The Senate last confirmed an ATF nominee in 2013. Dettelbach is a former federal prosecutor and served as the US attorney for the Northern District of Ohio under President Barack Obama.
