We love exposing stuff and showing the TRUTH! For example, this “letter to the editor“ to the Trubune:
As a father, gun owner, and hunter, I understand the important role that the ATF plays in enforcing our gun laws and protecting law abiding citizens. That is why I am urging Senators Bennett and Hickenlooper to confirm the nomination of David Chipman as director of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
A brief review of his biography will disclose that Mr. Chipman also is a father and a gun owner. In addition, he is a dedicated public servant, decorated law enforcement professional, and gun safety expert. He is a law enforcement professional, with more than 30 years’ experience as a special agent with the ATF, who has spent his career serving the public, combating violent crime, and striving to make our communities safer.
After retiring in 2012, Mr. Chipman continued his public service as an expert advising organizations on gun violence prevention. He has advised policymakers, gun violence prevention advocates, and community groups, educating the public on firearms policy, and has given expert testimony to Congress on reasonable firearms legislation.
I support sane, rational gun legislation and that is why I support Mr. Chipman. I can think of no one more qualified to lead the ATF than David Chipman.

“As a.....” is code word for “hey, I’m just some person with an opinion that’s just like you”, however, Peter failed to disclose that he works for the same organization as Chipman: Giffords.
Washington, DC — Giffords praised Colorado legislators for advancing HB21-1106 and SB21-0078, two bills that will save Colorado citizens from gun violence. Last week, Giffords Senior Counsel Allison Anderman and four members of the Colorado Gun Owners for Safety chapter testified in Colorado hearings, detailing to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees why it is important to pass commonsense gun safety laws. The bills passed in the Colorado House and Senate, respectively. Each now goes to the other chamber.
Peter Gurfein, Vic Bencomo, Everett Volk and Emily Engelhaupt, gun owners supporting responsible gun ownership and commonsense gun laws, asked Colorado lawmakers to pass HB21-1106, a bill requiring the safe storage of firearms, and SB21-0078, a bill requiring gun owners to report the loss or theft of a firearm.
Funny how that small detail was left out....
