I have written previously that people should keep their eyes on what they perceive as a pro-Second Amendment president and his administration, especially after claiming to drain the swamp while filling his cabinet and advisors with swamp creatures. When it comes to guns and the rights of gun owners, we’ve also seen the current administration call for unconstitutional red flag laws, and illegally and unconstitutionally ban bump stocks ex post facto, causing business owners to lose thousands of dollars and individuals to be considered criminals. First, there was the nomination and confirmation of pro-gun confiscator William Barr to the attorney general position. Now, President Trump is moving those chess pieces into place with a pro-gun confiscating nomination as the director of the unconstitutional agency known as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Is America being deceived and is full blown gun confiscation just right around the corner?

The word of the nomination of pro-gun confiscator Chuck Canterbury, who is part of the same kind of swamp that we all despise as President of the National Fraternal Order Of Police, to be the next ATF director came on Friday afternoon.

They always drop the big news late Friday because no one is paying attention over the weekend.

The problem with Canterbury? He’s got a really long history of publicly supporting and endorsing anti-gun policies, anti-gun Supreme Court nominees, and anti-gun high ranking government officials.

In a letter sent out to members and supporters of the National Association for Gun Rights, President Dudley Brown wrote:

In his official capacity as President of the National Fraternal Order of Police, Canterbury has:

*** Supported radical anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. 1

*** Supported former Attorney General Eric Holder – Obama’s head honcho who ran the deadly Fast and Furious gun running program. 2

*** Supported expanding the federal government’s gun registration schemes. 3

Even more troubling, Canterbury’s FOP is currently lobbying AGAINST Constitutional Carry, even though the vast majority of law enforcement officers support the right to carry. 4,5

This is troubling news.

As Director of the ATF, Canterbury will have broad authority over firearms regulations in the United States and his record doesn’t bode well at all for law-abiding gun owners.

We need an ATF Director who wants to tear down gun control, not expand it.

Brown went on to write, “Canterbury’s public record SUPPORTING gun control and radical gun grabbers like Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor are troubling to say the least.”

“He even testified on behalf of Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder – the man responsible for the deadly Fast and Furious gun running program,” Brown added.
