From the Firearms Policy Coalition . . .

Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced today it has sent a letter to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary demanding that it “exercise its constitutional authority, and moral duty, to withhold consent” of President Biden’s nomination of Steve Dettlebach for the position of Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

“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,” reads the letter, which is authored by Matthew Larosiere, FPC policy counsel. “Mr. Dettelbach, as a nominee, is light on substance but heavy on partisan loyalty and anti-gun-owner ideology. The People of the United States, and peaceable gun owners, do not need a hostile ideologue leading a law enforcement agency tasked with regulating the firearms community.”

FPC’s letter, addressed directly to the Committe’s chairman, Sen. Richard Durbin and ranking member, Sen. Charles Grassley, spotlights Dettlebach’s aggressive partisan reputation, embracing of “universal” background checks, published accounts of his support for “assault weapons” bans, and his promotion of anti-gun-owner causes. The letter draws parallels between Dettlebach and President Biden’s prior nominee, David Chipman, who was withdrawn having been deemed equally unqualified during a heavily-contested hearing process. While urging the President to withdraw his nomination of Dettlebach, the letter further encourages the United States Senate to “exercise its oversight powers to reign in the abuse of executive branch fiat legislation masquerading as regulatory action.”

FPC’s full letter to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary can be read here. Join members of the FPC Grassroots Army in opposing President Biden’s nomination of Steve Dettlebach to head the ATF at

  1. Make no mistake about it…Jim Crow Gun Control nazi joe is to The Second Amendment what a drunk farting gasbag is to fine dining.

  2. It would appear to me the entire agenda of this Administration is to make so many different things in our society (ie: inflation, joblessness, energy prices, Constitutional Rights violations, immigration violations, etc.) so abhorrent to American Citizens so that in fact there is a real insurrection in this Country. Then, of course, they will say “Look we told you these people were dangerous and now we have the reason we wanted to really clamp down on them”. Only problem for them is that there are far more of us than them and we are well prepared to deal with them if it should come to that. The saying “Be careful what you wish for”, is something they better keep in mind.

  3. The political pendulum swings back and forth. It seems to me that every time it starts to swing back to our side the left does everything they can to help. Leave them alone.

    • Agreed. The abortion opinion leak is a clear sign of desperation because nothing else has worked, and they are desperate to find something to activate their base. Will it be enough?

      The Dems are doing a wonderful job of sabotaging their potential for election success. Never interrupt someone who is digging his own grave.

      • “The abortion opinion leak is a clear sign of desperation because nothing else has worked, and they are desperate to find something to activate their base.”

        I’ve heard somewhere it isn’t working. According to what I read, the boost in enthusiasm is favoring us, not their side… 🙂

        • Abortion may be a great motivator during normal times for the fascist lefts base. But these are not normal times. bidenflation is destroying the country. People that are getting hungry and seeing their future melt away are more concerned about immediate problems.

      • Makes you wonder if leak from the Supreme Court was arranged to provide outrage from the woke masses. Both of them.

    • Sun Tzu said in the Art of War. “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.” On the flip side of that. The Democrats are using another Sun Tzu strategy. “if his forces are united, separate them. War is a tricky thing. It is as important to know your weaknesses as it is to know your enemies strengths.

      • That’s the purpose of “identity politics”. To divide and conquer by providing privileged minorities above the unwashed masses.

  4. “…Dettlebach’s aggressive partisan reputation, embracing of “universal” background checks, published accounts of his support for “assault weapons” bans,…”

    In between the BATF admitting MSRs are constitutionally-protected and a super-majority SCotUS bench interested in giving the 2A the respect it deserves, we just may get a hard ruling on that sooner than expected.

    There’s now a pending petition of cert. in the high court’s in-box dealing with Maryland’s semi-auto ban.

    I’m crossing my fingers that petition gets granted and gives the Leftist Scum ™ an even bigger case of heartburn than they have now thanks to a leak from the high Court… 🙂


  6. surprised he could not find a black woman for the job. several of his recent selections have been . It started with his VP.,then his supreme court nominee, his new press sec. , and most recently a seat on the fed reserve board. obviously white males in this country need not apply. don’t get me wrong each of these women have good points in their resume, but find it interesting that as brandon drops in polling among blacks that there is a flurry of black appointments–the woman angle i haven’t figured out

  7. This guy is just another gun grabber. He’s just not as vocal as Chippman.
    “Birds of a feather flock together.

  8. That’s why I say we have no hope for change except by force. This country has been taken over by corrupt politicians for over 45 years. Everyone one that in government from the past 45 years has baggage. They all need to be put on trial and investigated.i do home work ….. 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐬𝐜𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐤.𝐜𝐨𝐦

  9. lol
    like Danang Dick Durbin is gonna listen to this letter . . . . . . dude is an antigun shill to the core.
