You Helped Defeat Anti-Gun ATF Nominee David Chipman

Take a bow--and keep calling your members of Congress!

Chipman’s nomination to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is the second major Biden nomination to flop. Neera Tanden, Biden’s nominee to be White House budget director, was yanked in March after an uproar over attack tweets she issued against the very senators whose votes were needed for confirmation.

Biden said in a statement that Chipman would have been an “exemplary” director and he blamed Republican senators for the nomination’s failure, even though it was Democratic senators who doomed Chipman.
