Congress is now in the process of vetting David Chipman for the position of ATF Director. His appointment would be a critical blow to firearms freedoms because they rely so heavily on the regulatory attitudes out of the ATF.
Chipman is political hack for Giffords, Bloomberg, Mayors, Moms, and the rest of the frantic anti-gun lobby who eschew facts for feel good garbage and hate the very concept of private firearm ownership. There is nothing neutral or unbiased about the Chipman, there is no case or rule that could be brought before him where we could expect him to act in an objective manner rather than at the beck and call of the anti-gunners who he has been working for.
Today, Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at 10 a.m. EDT., President Joe Biden’s nominee to be the new Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Director, David Chipman, will testify in front of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. It is critical that all members of the firearm and ammunition industry, as well as supporters of the Second Amendment, contact their U.S. senators and urge them to oppose Chipman’s nomination to be Director of ATF, including for the numerous reasons highlighted here.
During the committee hearing, Chipman will be forced to answer questions about his staunch gun control agenda, including having called for banning AR-15 style rifles, implementing “universal background checks” and instituting national gun registries, as well as his denigration of gun buyers. Chipman is still employed by Giffords gun control group for whom he lobbied. He was also a lobbyist for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown gun control group and still serves as an advisor.
NSSF® vehemently opposes Chipman’s nomination as someone who is entirely unqualified to hold a position of public trust.
Gun control proponents are already making a full court press for senators to approve Chipman for the post. The entire firearm and ammunition industry, and all supporters of the Second Amendment, must make their voices heard in opposition to Chipman’s nomination.
Don’t let President Biden put the fox in charge of the henhouse!
