Fellow Gun Rights supporters, we are in the fight of our lives.  It has been DECADES since the right to keep and bear arms has been attacked in such a relentless, comprehensive, and overwhelming fashion.  What’s different today is the fact the left no longer throws its punches as to what they want:  


Like a runaway train, aided and abetted by a group of 10 RINO capitulators (including our own Senators “Benedict Burr and “Traitor Thom” Tillis) a framework is devolving into legislation that will incentivize gun confiscation orders (GCO’s) and make 2nd class citizens of 18–21-year-olds.  Behind closed doors, legislation is hastily materializing that we may not even be able to see and read before “let’s do this and get out of town” votes are taken before the July 4th Congressional recess begins Friday June 24th.

It appears the Senate is now on a fast track to do the same with confirmation of a permanent director for BATFE.

Stephen Dettelbach is “Ban ‘em Biden’s” second attempt to appoint a liberty grabber leftist to head the ‘BAFTE’.  Remember how crazy David Chippman appeared in person?  This new guy is no better.

Dettelbach is yet another Democrat gun banner highly endorsed by the various entities of Bloomberg Gun Control, Inc., During his recent unsuccessful campaign for Ohio Attorney General in 2018, Dettelbach was endorsed by Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Everytown for Gun Safety.  Dettelbach openly called for reinstating the failed “assault weapon” ban and for universal background checks.

In the gaslighting division, he’s even worse than Biden’s first choice. In his introduction when referring to the ATF he flat out stated that “they don't write the laws” on the very day that they were writing laws. Go figure. 

In his committee testimony, he refused to state his definition of an “assault weapon” he stands ready, willing, and able to ban.  However, we KNOW it is no different that the definition offered by his rejected predecessor nominee, David Chipman:  To wit, “ANY semiautomatic firearm of caliber .22 and greater capable of having a magazine inserted.”

We CANNOT suffer such a die-hard zealot as permanent director of the BATFE!

Suggested Subject: "Vote No to Avowed Gun Banner Steven Dettelbach as BATFE Director"  

Dear Senator:

Like David Chippman before him, Stephen Dettelbach is an outspoken “Bloomburg Gun Control, Inc” approved zealot who would weaponize the BATFE against lawful, peaceful gun possessing American citizens.

Like David Chippman before him, Stephen Dettelbach would ban ALL so called “assault weapons”.  While he refused to directly answer what his definition would be when first appearing before your committee a few weeks ago, we all know what it is: 

ANY semiautomatic firearm of caliber .22 and greater capable of having a magazine inserted.”

David Chippman’s nomination was rightly derailed for the same behaviors and beliefs we have seen and can expect from Stephen Dettelbach, who is before you now for consideration on Thursday June 16th.

Do not confirm a permanent director to the BATFE so opposed to the fundamental natural and constitutional rights exercised by hundreds of millions of American citizens.

I expect you to reject Stephen Dettelbach’s pending nomination to be permanent director of the BATFE.

I assure you I will be monitoring this issue through Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.
