America needs a top cop on illegal guns now
The mass shooting in Tuscon, Arizona is yet another deadly reminder of what happens when dangerous people get their hands on guns.

Now more than ever, law enforcement officials need the full support of Congress and the public to crack down on deadly criminals.

But the one agency responsible for cracking down on illegal gun crime has gone without a Director for the last four years.

To keep guns out of the hands of criminals, the Senate must confirm President Obama's nominee for ATF Director, Andrew Traver. As the head of the Chicago ATF office, Traver has proven that he'll fight to keep our families safe.

Each day we wait, 34 Americans will lose their lives to gun violence.

Tell your Senators to stand up to the powerful gun lobby and confirm a top cop on illegal guns for America.

Tell the Senate to confirm Andrew Traver as the ATF Director.

“I call on my Senators to confirm Andrew Traver as the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives immediately. We can't afford to allow illegal guns to flow freely to criminals here in the U.S. or across the border to drug cartels.”
