Now that the president has totally altered America’s healthcare system, he is on to other liberal wishlist items that have been on the backburner. First among them is gun control. The president has promised time and again that he isn’t coming after anyone’s guns, but he is attempting to install rabidly anti-gun officials in powerful bureaucratic positions.
On deck for control of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is Andrew Traver, an anti-gun BATFE agent from Chicago’s field office.
Here’s a video of Traver, that is misleading viewers by showing them an automatic AK-47, but saying that assault weapons ought to be banned. The AK-47 that’s in the video is already illegal in the United States for those without a special permit. This type of confusion of the facts is the bread and butter of the anti-gun lobby.
America surely doesn’t need another bureaucrat to confuse the issues for them. The Obama administration is already full of people who are doing that.
Any senator that votes to confirm Traver as head of BATFE will certainly face the wrath of voters come their next election. The NRA has already come out strongly against Traver. Below is an interview with Chris Cox from the NRA that outlines why Traver shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near Washington D.C.
