Biden to withdraw nomination of Chipman as top ATF gang shot-caller

Source: USA Today

“President Joe Biden is withdrawing David Chipman as his nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives after facing resistance over his support for [victim disarmament] that blocked confirmation in the Senate, according to a source familiar with the decision. … A former agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Chipman drew sharp criticism from Republicans, who argued his recent work with [victim disarmament] groups like Everytown and Giffords, led by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, disqualifies him from the position that holds law enforcement power over the nation’s gun manufacturers, importers and sellers.” (09/09/21)
