Opposes Obama’s nomination of Andrew Traver as Director of the BATFE

No matter what you think about the National Rifle Asociation (NRA) they are in the forefront of protecting Constitutional rights in this Country. The Founders intended the 2nd Amendment to protect all the other unalienable rights, which the current Congress and Administration don't think are so unalienable. Drop an e-mail to your Congressman and let him/her know that Andrew Traver is unacceptable as the Director of the BATFE.

Below, from the NRA:

The NRA strongly opposes President Obama’s nomination of Andrew Traver as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). Traver has been deeply aligned with gun control advocates and anti-gun activities. This makes him the wrong choice to lead an enforcement agency that has almost exclusive oversight and control over the firearms industry, its retailers and consumers. Further, an important nomination such as BATFE director should not be made as a “recess appointment,” in order to circumvent consent by the American people through their duly elected U.S. Senators.

Traver served as an advisor to the International Association for Chiefs of Police’s (IACP) “Gun Violence Reduction Project,” a “partnership” with the Joyce Foundation. Both IACP and the Joyce Foundation are names synonymous with promoting a variety of gun control schemes at the federal and state levels. Most of the individuals involved in this project were prominent gun control activists and lobbyists.
