Its a domain purchased by the NRA-ILA it looks like. Its a silly script to help you fill out a letter to either email or print out and send to the appropriate Senators.

Before you just "don't follow" a blind link hitup a /whois lookup. Or use a secure browser, with an AdBlocker. :)

Nah. If the person who posts the link doesn't bother to introduce it or excerpt it (or preferably, both), I won't bother to visit the site.

Ostrich.

I followed the link and filled out the form. Thanks for providing the link! Definately something we do NOT want to let happen.

Excerpt from the website:

"President Barack Obama has nominated anti-gun extremist Andrew Traver to be Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE)."

The website opposes this measure, and affords a means of contacting Congress to oppose it.

It is a separate site set up by the NRA/ILA to send an email to your senators to tell them to vote against confirming Travers as the head of the ATF. If you don't trust their links, I feel for you.
I'm just not saying what I feel.

Yeah... Guys.. No need to worry about other peoples browsing habits.. Relax..

The link is for a good cause, but it fishes for info, that I wish not to give as well. In spirit. I did the letters anyway to my Senators..

Do what you will.

Any topic that has "anti-American," "Obama," and "anti-gun 'extremist'" in it is not worth following the link to.

Just another one of those right-winger fear-mongering pages.

Thank you for the link though. There are individuals on here that will be more than happy to fill out the required information and hit "send."

If you do any search for him then you would know that it isn't so much of "fear-mongering" but rather stuff that's likely true. The guy was nominated back in November, but if you look at any of the stuff then you would know just how potentially bad news he is. First off he's from the Chicago ATF office which should raise flags. Secondly he's supported by the Brady campaign which is another flag. He did a video saying how dangerous AKs are, proceeds to say that they should be banned because they can defeat standard bullet-proof vests. I mean has he seen some of the hunting rounds compared to an AK round? Then to show just how dangerous they are he has a reporter fire a fully auto AK FROM THE HIP as proof of how dangerous and inaccurate they are.

I could go on, but I won't. You can do a simple google search for yourself. But if he were to be confirmed it would be a bad thing.

+1, this guy is a complete joke. Im sure he got nominated for his political views more so than his knowlege. If he thinks an AK is a more powerful weapon than a deer rifle than he is a flaming idiot, but, I bet alot of the sheep feed off of that because they dont know any better, which is what the anti American officials rely.

There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding firearms.

But "anti-American," "extremist," please, there is enough rhetoric out there in the 'news'.

While I wouldn't say he's "anti-American" (though given how ingrained 2A at least used to be one could say it's un-American), he does hold pretty extreme views in regards to guns.

So is Kim Bodice, the propagandist reporter who compiled this clip.

I've fired AK-47s on several occasions and never had the slightest issue controlling my direction of fire. As for the mother who lost her daughter, my condolences, but an AK-47 is nowhere near as powerful as a shotgun, particularly at close range. At distance, most hunting rifles are more powerful, as well.

I'm sure he got nominated for his political views more so than his knowlege. If he thinks an AK is a more powerful weapon than a deer rifle than he is a flaming idiot, but, I bet alot of the sheep feed off of that because they dont know any better, which is what the anti American officials rely.
If Traver can't get his facts straight on something this simple, how in the world is anyone to trust him as head of the BATF? :banghead:

NOT the right person for the job.
