New ATF ‘leader’…

President Biden will nominate David Chipman, an adviser to the gun control organization founded by former Representative Gabrielle Giffords, to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or A.T.F., according to two people with knowledge of the move.

John Richardson has a new post up about Chipman, with a different ‘perspective’, HERE

Somehow I don’t think Chipman is going to make it through confirmation… Just sayin’

  1. I’d have a hard time thinking of a worse candidate for the job. I’ll be letting my senators know what I think of this choice.

    • Jim – you are likely correct about that particular job but how about this: jane fonda for SecDef or kermit gosnel for surgeon general……………

  2. My senators don’t give a rat’s patootie about my opinions on anything. They will get re-elected with 60+% of the vote anyway when the time comes.

    • It’s the same in my state of Washington. My senators are deaf to any conservative voter.

  3. Hey Old NFO;

    I hope he gets pilloried through conformation, but I almost think he may get a pass with the Donks having a majority in the senate right now and the “squishies” we have on the GOP side.

  4. Chipman may be a bridge too far for the cop-hating elements, but we’ll have to see. It’s gonna be REAL interesting if anyone brings up Waco.

    • Toast – it might be even more ‘interesting’ if Waco isn’t brought up…………..
      Never mind his anti-gun biases.

  5. So? At this moment in time, do you think anything matters?

    I mean, two administrations ago they pushed in two complete leftist nutjobs who were more concerned about their sex and their ethnic origins than the Constitution as Supreme Court Judges.

    And Xiden got a friggin leftist fanatic tranny as head of Health and Human Services, one who believes in basically forced transition as a child (no child can truly make that determination without a hell of a lot of external manipulation.)

    So, well, yeah, some murdering scum as head of the BATFE? Why not?

    After all, Florida has an anti-big agriculture and anti-gun Leftist as their Agricultural Commissioner (who is in charge of, well, big agriculture and the CCW program.)

    Seriously, all Xiden has to do is put him in as a ‘provisional’ leader and leave him there. No confirmation needed.

    At this point, does it even matter?

    At this point, do the Supremes, as a group, even care about the Constitution?

    • +1, sadly enough. He was chosen BECAUSE OF his work at Waco.

  6. All- Good points, and no it may NOT make a difference… But one has to at least try…

  7. The Democrats see him as a good pick – someone nonplussed at killing Americans. I am sure that he would also not be concerned about the law; he would do what he wanted and ask the courts to throw out cases against him and BATFE.

      • WSG – if IIRC Waco PD said that they would be glad to pick him up but were ‘asked’ by the bats to not do so.

  8. You, Cam Edwards, and Tom Gresham have all said you don’t think Chipman will be confirmed. You guys have WAY more faith in the Senate than I do.
