National Association for Gun Rights Opposes the Nomination of David Chipman
Gun control advocate unfit to serve as next ATF Director
Washington, D.C. – The National Association for Gun Rights strongly opposes the nomination of David Chipman to become the next Director of the ATF.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on Chipman’s nomination today.
“While it’s not shocking that Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer picked Chipman, it’s still a particularly sad day in America when a known gun confiscation advocate is being paraded before the Senate Judiciary Committee as their nominee to head the ATF,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
David Chipman is currently a gun control advocate and senior lobbyist for Giffords – a gun control group dedicated to restricting, and eventually eliminating the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Chipman has testified numerous times before Congress, advocating against the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.
“No U.S. Senator should support David Chipman in this sham of a hearing – and anyone who votes for him is a clear enemy of the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights.” concluded Brown.
The National Association for Gun Rights will score any vote in favor of Chipman as anti-gun.
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s second largest pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members and supporters nationwide.
