From the NRA-ILA:
NRA Strongly Opposes Obama’s Re-nomination Of Anti-Gun-Leaning Andrew Traver To Head BATFE
Friday, January 07, 2011
This week, President Obama re-nominated Andrew Traver to be director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Obama first nominated Traver on November 17, 2010, but the Senate Judiciary Committee failed to act on his nomination.
Last November, NRA strongly opposed Obama’s nomination of Traver. Our strong opposition has not changed.
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.
Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to oppose Andrew Traver’s ill-advised nomination to head BATFE. You can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121.
