RE: Support for the Nomination of Chuck Canterbury to be the next Director of ATF
There have been several media reports today that the Administration will be pulling its nomination of Immediate Past National President Chuck Canterbury to be the next Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
These reports are false. Chuck continues to have the full support and confidence of the President and his Administration.
And now it is critical that the Members of Senate Judiciary hear that you, the members of the FOP and strong supporters of the 2nd Amendment, also support Chuck!
Chuck has made it clear, over the course of his career of service and numerous testimonies before Congress, that he is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment.
Chuck is the Immediate Past National President and CEO of the Fraternal Order of Police for 16 years and has a proven and established track record of leadership and integrity.
At our recently concluded 64th Biennial National Conference, approximately many thousands of delegates, representing officers from all 50 States, offered a resolution directing the National FOP to endorse Chuck’s nomination. It passed unanimously.
The nation’s leading law enforcement organizations have endorsed his nomination.
He is also recognized internationally as an expert on law enforcement management and representation, currently serving as a board member of the International Council of Police Representatives Association, which represents over 1.4 million law enforcement officers worldwide.
He started his law enforcement career as a street officer and his lifetime of knowledge and experience make him an excellent choice to be the next ATF Director.
We need our members to help combat FAKE NEWS about Chuck and his record. Call the Members of the Judiciary Committee and tell them you are an FOP member and Second Amendment supporter and you want them to vote YES on the Canterbury nomination.
