The Trump administration is withdrawing its nomination for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, after Chuck Canterbury alienated several Republican Senators during his July confirmation hearing for refusing to give an answer to questions regarding his personal opinion on gun laws.
Canterbury avoided answering several questions from GOP senators during his testimony, claiming he didn’t want to express any opinions that contrasted with the stated policy views of the Fraternal Order of Police. Canterbury is the former President of that organization.
Senators such as Louisiana’s John Kennedy questioned Canterbury’s evasive testimony in July.
“I like straight answers, and you are being evasive,” said Kennedy. “You have been nominated to run ATF. I think every member of this panel, both my Democratic friends and Republican friends who have feelings about the Second Amendment, are entitled to know both morally and legally what you believe.”
Canterbury had been asked numerous times about his policy views on matters such as banning so-called “assault weapons.”
The ATF has tremendous power over the American gun industry and Second Amendment community, and in some cases have banned previously legal forms of weapons with impunity. Some firearms enthusiasts have become increasingly skeptical of the agency in recent years, and conservatives have sought additional oversight. High-level ATF leadership have spoken of what they believe to be a conspiracy against their agency, further alienating gun rights supporters.
The Trump administration formally informed the Senate that it was withdrawing Canterbury’s nomination on Tuesday. His ambiguous views towards common gun control proposals had ensured his nomination was stalled, and now pulled.
Pregnant White Woman Charged with 4-Year Felony for Using Firearm to Fend Off After Being Harassed by Black Women
A video has gone viral of a pregnant white woman in Lake Orion, Mich. pulling a gun in self-defense following a confrontation with two unruly black people outside of a Chipotle.
Republican Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard announced on Thursday that he would be charging the woman and her husband with felonies that could result in up to four years in prison for acting in self-defense.
“Let’s have a little more tolerance for each other and not being so quick to react,” Bouchard said, urging cowardice and submission among the masses. “If someone is doing something improper or unfair, I tell my family and friends to look away. This is not the moment to plant your flag.”
Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, and Eric Wuestenberg, 42, are getting thrown under the bus by the Republican sheriff despite the fact that they had concealed pistol licenses and were law-abiding firearm owners. The black people harassing the Wuestenbergs can be heard in the video issuing threats and making racist statements about the whites who they were menacing.
“You’re very racist and ignorant,” shouted the black lady.
“This is not that type of world. White people aren’t racist. No one’s racist. I care about you, I care about you and I’m sorry if you had an incident that has made someone made you feel like that,” the pregnant woman said from her car. “No one is racist.”
In typical fashion, the instigators are playing the victim.
“So this is America….I’ve never in my life had a gun pulled out on me let alone two and while I had my three daughters I’ve never felt so helpless in my life I’m so shaken up,” instigator Takelia Hill wrote in a Facebook post.
“Before I could walk into Chipotle, this woman was coming out, and I had moved out the way so she can walk out,” Hill’s daughter, Makayla Green said to The Detroit News. “She bumped me, and I said, ‘Excuse you.’ And then she started cussing me out and saying things like I was invading her personal space.”
The sheriff’s office has robbed the Wuestenbergs of their 2nd Amendment freedoms as a condition of their $50,000 personal bond. They were arraigned in Rochester Hills on Thursday.
“As part of the bond conditions, they must turn over all firearms, not engage in any assaultive behavior, and may not leave the state,” sheriff’s officials said.
Big League Politics has reported on the growing trend of regular citizens standing up to the left-wing racial domination mob across the country:
A St. Louis couple defended their property from a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters who were trespassing in their gated community.
The rioters had decided to take their “protest” to a suburban residential neighborhood, unlawfully and in a manner that was calculated to cause alarm among the neighborhood’s residents.
As the BLM mob marched through the streets of their neighborhood, the couple came outside, armed with an AR-15 rifle and what appears to be a .22 semiautomatic pistol in defense of their home.
Additional footage of the event reveals that the rioters were clearly trespassing on private property, entering a residential neighborhood that is no place for a political protest, not to mention violating city laws.
The online Left immediately commenced a hate and doxxing campaign against the couple, seeking their arrest for defying the Black Lives Matter movement and daring the defend their home from the well-documented tendencies of looting, violence and vandalism on the part of the political movement.
As cowardly authorities refuse to protect the public safety, vigilantism will inevitably rise as ordinary people decide enough is enough.
