Finally, Biden has pulled the nomination of unhinged gun-grabber David Chipman. It’s hard to believe he was even nominated for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) with his radical past (see more below).
The Washington Post and Associated Press are both reporting the nomination has been pulled by the Biden regime. This move comes after push-back from Republicans in the Senate who oppose Chipman’s strong anti-gun stance.
Reportedly, one Democrat who is a holdout on Chipman was the key reason the nomination was pulled.
The ATF position has been empty during the past three presidents.
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON CHIPMAN’S RADICAL STANCE ON GUNS:
The video below from 2018 is of Buck Sexton questioning Biden’s ATF nominee on if the government should regulate the AR just like a machine gun. The nominee is an anti-gun zealot who has been involved with anti-gun organizations in the past.
Transcript and video below of the exchange between Chipman and Sexton:
BUCK SEXTON: The AR is the AR rifle platform and telling people they have to turn it in.
CHIPMAN: What I support is treating them just like machine guns
BUCK: So that’s a yes, right. I mean, you have to get a special, very special, and hard to get federalists the government does not. Very few people have machine guns.
CHIPMAN: Well, right now, millions of firearms registered under the national firearms act have been lawfully owned by Americans since the 1930s. To me, if you want to have a weapon of war, the same gun that was issued to me as a member of the ATF SWAT team, it makes sense that you would have to pass a background check. The gun would have to be in your name, and there would be a picture and fingerprints on file. Like, to me, I don’t mind doing that if I want to buy a gun. These policies protect the criminal like I don’t think you should be able to anonymously purchase 20 AR-15s at one time, and the government should know.
BUCK: So, the AR is the most popular semi-automatic rifle in the country. So the people that have ARs would have to get government permission to continue to own it and or give it in.
CHIPMAN: Yeah, the same government permission, which is a background check. I mean, I think when you say government permission, we have to be clear about what that is. The same permission, I guess, I have to go through when I buy a gun which is just to prove you’re not a criminal. So yeah, if that’s what you’re calling permission, I don’t think it’s unreasonable at all that you have to pass a passive background check to own a way to get it fully automatic it’s you have to pay a big fee what’s and then to go through a federal background check to get 200. It’s the same fee that was charged in 1930
