Alright, so let’s dig into this guy that President Biden nominated to run the ATF. If you casually glance at his resume, the first thing you’d see is that he was an ATF agent for 25+ years, which seems good, right? Not so fast, because during his tenure as an agent, Chipman picked up some real problematic resume items. First and foremost is that he was the case agent for the ATF during the Branch Davidian stand-off and case, or as you might remember it “that time the federal government burned down a building full of little kids.” He lists that on his resume like it’s something to be proud of. Then fast-forward to the late 2000s, and David Chipman is now senior leadership at the ATF. What happened during that time with the ATF? Oh yeah, Operation Fast and Furious, which if you don’t recall, was the time the federal government allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico, one of which ended up in the hands of a cartel member who used it to murder Brian Terry. Those same guns were also used to murder hundreds of Mexican civilians.
His “qualifications” as an ATF agent should be enough to disqualify him from holding the most senior position at the agency. Anyone connected with Waco should be disqualified from federal leadership, period. Add into that being a member of leadership during F&F, and to any rational person that should be a hard no-go. But David Chipman wasn’t done. After leaving the ATF, he’s had two notable career stops: Everytown for Gun Safety and the Giffords anti-gun group, the latter of which he currently works for as a Senior Advisor.
Well, isn’t that special.
The proclamation was introduced by state Rep. Quang Nguyen (R-Dist. 1).
Breitbart News possesses a copy of the proclamation, which notes Chipman’s “extensive career” in the gun control lobby, “working with organizations whose mission is to erode the Second Amendment and criminalize law-abiding Americans.”
Hopefully, Kelly will have the integrity to do the right thing in this case. No breath holding, though. Suffocation will most likely happen first.
