The U.S. Senate may soon begin confirmation hearings on one of the most dangerous political appointees of Barack Obama's presidency -- and NRA-ILA needs YOUR HELP to defeat this nomination!

President Obama has tapped Andrew Traver, a committed ringleader in the gun-ban movement, to head up the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). Now, the U.S. Senate must decide whether to allow Traver to take over this crucial government post.

As a committed Second Amendment freedom fighter, you're well aware that this agency has an enormous and direct impact on you and other gun owners nationwide. And if Andrew Traver is confirmed by the U.S. Senate, it will turn back the clock all the way to the Clinton days when the full force of BATFE's enormous powers were leveled against gun stores and gun owners on an almost daily basis.

That's why I'm asking you to visit www.StopTraver.org today.

Through this special website, you can send messages directly to your U.S. Senators and make your voice heard BEFORE the Senate considers this disastrous nomination. This website also includes an important "Stop Traver" Fact Sheet with critical information you need to know about Andrew Traver.

Please understand, Traver is not just another run-of-the-mill anti-gun elitist, but a dedicated gun-ban zealot with the deepest possible ties to the national "gun control" movement.

And now, President Barack Obama wants to put him in charge of BATFE where he can inflict almost unlimited and permanent damage to our rights.

Please, visit www.StopTraver.org today and help us win this crucial battle -- for yourself and for every American who cherishes our constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Thanks in advance for your courageous help!

P.S. Anti-gun ringleaders across the country are doing everything in their power to make sure that Andrew Traver is confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the next Director of BATFE. You need to make your voice heard! Please, click here to visit www.StopTraver.org and help defeat this disastrous Obama nomination today!

Yea, he nominated him around the middle of last year. Looks like he will be head of the ATF, not much that can be done about the Senate confirmation. Here is one blurb from him about military style rifles:

Traver says the power and randomness of the heavy caliber, military-style weapons make them so dangerous not only to people, but to police. They’re so powerful, body armor can’t withstand a hit, and they’re so difficult to control, their bullets often get sprayed beyond the intended targets, striking innocent victims even when they’re in their own homes.

I guess Police aint people.

Received a reply from Senator Wicker(or one of his assistants) this morning:

Thank you for contacting me regarding Andrew Traver, President Obama's nominee to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE).  I am glad to have the benefit of your views on this issue.
Since coming to Congress in 1995, I have been a strong and consistent defender of the Second Amendment.  I have opposed efforts to impose gun restrictions on law-abiding citizens, and I do not feel more gun control laws are the answer to the problems confronting our nation.  I believe tougher enforcement of existing laws is a more effective means of addressing crime.
As you know, the Senate has the Constitutional obligation to provide the President with "advice and consent" on Executive and Judicial Branch nominations.  I take this responsibility very seriously and appreciate your thoughts on his nomination. 
Be assured I will keep your views in mind as the confirmation process continues. Please feel free to contact me if I can ever be of assistance. 
With best wishes, I am

            Sincerely yours,

            Roger F.Wicker
            U.S. Senate
