Chipman is not going to be ATF director

Postby bignflnut » Fri Sep 10, 2021 8:21 am

We no longer need to worry about the specter of David Chipman running the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosive. Not that there was apparently all that huge of a risk of him ever being confirmed, but it sure as hell felt like there was a risk, didn’t it?

Now, the risk is over. Chipman’s nomination is out and we can proceed forward.

However, now the game heads in a new direction. People will try to justify the pick and Monday morning quarterback the whole thing, which will give us a lot of fodder for pointing out people’s stupidity.


Meh. ATF hasn't had a director for a while, and we continue to deny the origin and enforcement of our Natural Rights.

Exactly, I don't expect anyone put forth to have a non-partisan mindset, let alone be supportive of the 2A.
The Constitution is the solution.

On top of that, David Chipman will likely land a position in the White House. Biden may create a "Gun Czar" or "Office of Gun Violence Prevention" job for him.

Earlier this year, we saw a similar situation where Neera Tanden was nominated to become Biden's budget director (a cabinet position). Still, hostile tweets directed at members of congress killed her nomination. After the dust settled, she landed a senior advisor position in the White House two months later.

Gun owners should expect to see a similar situation with Chipman. It's unlikely that the Biden admin will just let this defeat go. Anti-gun activists are upset and will likely start to put pressure on Biden to bypass congress, create a position for David Chipman, and nominate another ATF director.

Expect Chipman to receive his appointment during a holiday, or when some major event has happened that captures media attention.
