Chipman is out. That’s the good news. Here’s the bad news: he will still be a threat to your 2nd Amendment rights.
We caught up with Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) before the Montana State Bobcats home opener in Bozeman last week. We talked about the game, the 20th Anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, and Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Here’s what he had to say about the news that David Chipman would no longer be the nominee to head up the ATF:
Senator Daines: As soon as we heard he was a nominee we were out in front opposed to that. We wrote the letter. He’s a registered anti gun lobbyist. I mean, this truly is putting an arsonist in charge the fire department if you put Chipman in charge of the ATF. So we’re grateful Biden pulled the nomination yesterday. That’s good news. But this this guy, there’s no reason this guy should ever even have been close to thinking he’s running the ATF. Now, by the way, guess what’s going to happen to him though? Here’s the deal, the Biden Administration will place him in a position of political appointment that doesn’t require a Senate vote. I just saw the report out here
