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.
