The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee at the end of last week to voice opposition to Biden’s ATF nominee Steve Dettelbach.
FPC sent Breitbart News an exclusive copy of the letter last week, providing insight into how their campaign to save the Second Amendment from Dettelbach is being waged.
The FPC letter, addressed specifically to Sens. Richard Durbin (D-IL) and Charles Grassley (R-IA), says, in part:
FPC not only opposes President Biden’s nomination of Steve Dettelbach to lead the ATF, we condemn his nomination as yet another naked attempt to weaponize federal law enforcement against peaceable gun owners nationwide. Dettelbach has spent much of his career supporting partisan platforms and the gun control movement.
Mr. Dettelbach’s embrace of “universal” background checks, published accounts of his support for “assault weapons” bans, and his promotion of anti-gun-owner causes are too radical for someone to be tasked with setting the policy and enforcement practices of the ATF. These positions mirror those of former nominee David Chipman and are equally disqualifying.
