The new head of the Upper Midwest office of the ATF said his priority will be getting violent offenders off the street, the Associated Press reports.

Scott Sweetow

Scott Sweetow, who was named special agent in charge of the ATF’s St. Paul Field Division in January, said his office has to be realistic about guns.

“Firearms have been around for hundreds of years. Crime being committed with firearms is going to continue no matter what,” Sweetow told the AP in an extensive interview. “No single law … is going to do away with it. … We have a job to do, and regardless of what legislation is passed, ultimately we are going to have to find a way to make things work.”

Sweetow’s division covers Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota
