David Chipman Nomination Withdrawn from U.S. Senate
Grassroots gun owners successfully defeat anti-gun David Chipman and his quest to head ATF

Washington, D.C.  – This morning, the White House and anti-gun Democrats admitted defeat and withdrew the nomination of David Chipman to head the ATF. Chipman, a former ATF agent and staunch gun control advocate could not garner enough support in the U.S Senate to make it through the nomination process.  

“David Chipman’s nomination to lead the ATF was a slap in the face to gun owners across the country. Now, thanks to the pro-gun grassroots, we’ve put Chipman back where he belongs: at home without a job,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

President Biden and Senate Democrats made it a priority to have a radical anti-gunner head the ATF – which is their best attempt at circumventing Congress and passing gun control. Chipman himself has testified numerous times before Congress, advocating against the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans and would have used the agency to enforce numerous gun control schemes.

His nomination and subsequent defeat comes at the hands of millions of law-abiding gun owners consistently lobbying the U.S. Senate to back down and remove him from consideration.

“I want to personally thank the 4.5 million members of the National Association for Gun Rights and their tireless grassroots lobbying efforts. It’s the activism of honest gun owners which brought Chipman down. Today, gun owners will celebrate this victory, but we know President Biden will prop up another anti-gun pawn in the near future. But we stand ready to oppose their unconstitutional actions.” concluded Brown.

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s second largest pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members and supporters nationwide.
