I can't wait to help boot her sorry ass to the curb.

"Thank you for contacting me regarding the nomination of Andrew Traver to be the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE). I appreciate hearing from you, and I welcome the opportunity to respond.
As you know, the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees Americans the fundamental right to bear arms. I strongly support legal and safe gun ownership by law-abiding citizens and have consistently voted to uphold this constitutional right. At the same time, we have to make sure that guns do not fall into the hands of individuals who should not have them.

On November 15, 2010, President Obama nominated Special Agent Andrew Traver of the BATFE to be the Bureau's Director. For over 20 years, Mr. Traver has served as a career special agent in various roles at BATFE. Reviewing his record, it is clear that he has demonstrated a dedication to law enforcement. Throughout his service, Mr. Traver has acquired valuable experience in combating illicit use and trafficking of firearms and explosives in Chicago, San Francisco, and New Orleans, among other assignments. Mr. Traver's nomination has not been considered by the full Senate and, in accordance with Senate rules, due to the expiration of the 111th Congress, the nomination was returned to the President. The President will need to renominate Mr. Traver in order for the Senate to consider it.

You may be interested to know that since joining the Senate in 2007, I have voted to support gun rights. For example, in the 111th Congress, I voted to permit gun owners to carry firearms in their checked bags when traveling on Amtrak trains and to require the National Park Service to honor state gun laws when gun owners enter National Parks in their states. I am pleased that both of these common-sense provisions, which enhance the ability of sportsmen to enjoy activities like hunting, have become law. Please know that I will continue to support the right of law-abiding citizens to safely own firearms.

As your United States Senator, I do not and will never play partisan politics when carrying out my constitutional duty to provide "advice and consent" on the President's nominations. I only support nominees who I believe, based on their record, are well qualified. I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind as I consider Mr. Traver's nomination and anytime Congress considers gun-related legislation.

Again, thank you for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other issue.


Claire McCaskill
United States Senator

More proof they aren't listening and don't ever plan to do so.

They gotta get fired before they take us seriously.

She did agree to the final bill that included CCW in parks....but only after voting on record as a clear no towards national park carry.

I copied that, the roll call votes and sent it back to her explaining that the voting population isnt that stupid. It was attached to the bill she wanted: the pesky credit card bill.


Here is the proof:


She is a fucking liar.

edited to add that his little gem would be nice to fwd to local media - have at it.
