Posted on 05/26/2019 4:49:51 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
In a national email, the National Association for Gun Rights announced that the Trump administration just made an anti-gunner the next ATF Director.
Chuck Canterbury is the presumptive nominee at the ATF based on an announcement made on Friday.
According to the NAGR President Dudley Brown, Canterbury has a long history of publicly supporting and endorsing anti-gun policies, anti-gun Supreme Court nominees, and anti-gun high ranking government officials.
As President of the National Fraternal Order of Police, Canterbury has supported anti-gun Supreme Court Justices like Sonia Sotomayor and former Attorney General Eric Holder, who ran the notorious Fast and Furious gun running program.
On top of that, Canterbury supported the expansion of the federal governments gun registration schemes.
Brown reported that Canterburys FOP is currently lobbying AGAINST Constitutional Carry, even though the vast majority of law enforcement officers support the right to carry.
In Browns view, this is troubling news.
Ultimately the no compromise leader called for an ATF Director who wants to tear down gun control, not expand it.
Brown then promised to keep NAGR members informed of everything that goes on during this process.

If this is true.....
Who the heck chooses these people?
Where is The Wall and why in hell was THIS guy hired...???

“If this is true.....”
Well, there was the bump stock ban. A gimmick, sure, but a federal ban on a firearm accessory nonetheless. Could just be throwing them a bone, but the hair on the back of my neck is standing up a bit.
Not only NO but HE!! NO. = We NEED a PRO-2nd Amendment person to head BATFE & NOW.
“Who the heck chooses these people?”
It’s not Trump.
Whoa Nelly...what’s this all about? What does NRA say? We already got HUGELEY stiffed with the bump stock ban.
This is very serious.
Reminds me of when Bush stabbed us in the back.
The FOP has been extremely anti-gun for a long time. They do not represent the ordinary cop.
This Ping List is for all things pertaining to infringes upon or victories for the 2nd Amendment.
FReepmail me if you want to be added to or deleted from the list.
More 2nd Amendment related articles on FR's Bang List.
Never heard of NAGR. Anyone else? Be wary of everything.
If the guy is truly an anti-gunner, he should be trashed for it, and his name withdrawn.
Trump isn’t going to get everyone right, but this is an important one.
I don’t believe Trump wants to see further gun rights erosion, despite the bump stock ban.
Presidents get bad advice too, and sometimes they don’t think critically enough.
Trump isn’t going to be perfect. From time to time he may blow one. I would too I’m sure.
This country doesnt need people excusing such a big blunder on constitutional rights to self defense.
Not anymore. Too much schitt has been chipped away by oh well we got it wrong this time.
Its got to fuching end on our side, at least.
See, if we can figure it out you know its not an oversight or mistake.
The WH has nominated Canterbury as ATF director. This man is 100% for gun control and anti 1st . Who in the hell keeps selling these people to the president? This is how he ended up with that loser Sessions
I’m not following that. ???
I understand where you are coming from.
It seems to us like Trump would hand pick these guys himself, but he gets their names from idiots who have another agenda.
He can’t do all the background checks on his own. He won’t know everything about these guys.
This is a problem all our decent presidents have. Reagan used to get bum suggestions too. Look at Sandra Day O’Connor.
It’s now so much excusing Trump, as it is just addressing reality. I don’t want an ATF guy that hasn’t a clue, or worse has his own anti-gun agenda any more than you do, believe me.
If all the gun laws we have haven’t done the trick, we should be rolling them back if anything. Most of them don’t help at all.
Its NOT so much excusing Trump, as it is just addressing reality.
