In the middle of the slow-moving disaster that is the Biden administration, one bright spot has appeared: the nomination of David Chipman, not a lover of the Second Amendment, to be the head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms have been withdrawn.
Chipman, a former ATF agent who became a prominent gun control advocate after leaving the agency, has been ensnared in a brutal confirmation battle since Biden nominated him this spring.
“He would have been an exemplary Director of the ATF and would have redoubled its efforts to crack down on illegal firearms traffickers and help keep our communities safe from gun violence,” Biden said in a statement on Thursday. “Unfortunately, Republicans in Congress have made clear that they intend to use gun crime as a political talking point instead of taking serious steps to address it.”
Crackdown on illegal firearms sales, or the firearms themselves? Chipman was an advocate for smaller ammunition magazines, and putting the kibosh on “assault-style” rifles. Plus, he got praise from gun control groups.
“This is a boon for gun manufacturers that profit from the weak enforcement of existing gun laws and have spent millions maligning this dedicated public servant,” said Igor Volsky, founder and executive director of Guns Down America.
Since gun laws really violate the second amendment, it’s more of a boon than not.
“Glad to hear reports the White House is taking my advice and pulling the terrible nomination of David Chipman,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Twitter. “Absurd that a vocal opponent of Americans’ constitutional rights was ever picked to run ATF. This is a win for the Second Amendment and law-abiding American citizens.”
At least McConnell is on the right side of this issue. For now.
In the meantime, the ATF is headless. Maybe it’s time to kill the department. After all, in the United States, Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms really should be a chain of convenience stores.
