White House Withdraws Chipman’s ATF Nomination But Eyes New Position As “Gun Czar” IMG iStock

WASHINGTON, D.C.-(Ammoland.com)- The White House plans to pull the nomination of David Chipman for the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

David Chipman was an ATF special agent before leaving the Bureau to work for a private company called Shot Spotter. He served as its Vice President of marketing. Shop Spotter has face criticism from activists for being infective and targeting minority neighborhoods. Several major localities have canceled contracts with the company over these concerns. A Chicago Inspector General report shows the system only to be effective 9% of the time.

After his stint with Shot Spotter, Chipman went on to help Bloomberg start Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The organization morphed into Everytown for Gun Safety. He then went to work for Giffords.org. Giffords is an anti-gun organization founded by Gabby Giffords after being shot in a Safeway parking lot during a campaign stop.

When Biden nominated Chipman, anti-gun groups like the Brady Organization and Everytown celebrated. People in the political world saw the nomination of Mr. Chipman as payback to anti-gun groups that backed Biden and dumped massive amounts of money into the past Presidential election cycle.

Chipman faced harsh criticism from gun rights groups for being an open anti-gun advocate. They also believed that Chipman was nominated for political reasons. Chipman has even suggested in the past that rifles that take detachable magazines should be regulated like machine guns because he believes it speeds up the rate of fire.

The gun world united to stop him from being confirmed. Significant pressure was upon Democratic Senators from conservative areas such as Senator Joe Manchin from West Virginia. Every national gun group launched some sort of campaign to stop Chipman from being confirmed.

At the same time, past racist comments allegedly made by David Chipman surfaced from his time at the ATF. Mr. Chipman made statements accusing black agents of cheating on tests because of their high scores. He insinuated that they couldn’t have scored as high as they did without cheating.

The anti-gun lobby credited the gun-rights movement with killing Mr. Chipman’s nomination.  Brady United accused gun organizations of running a “smear campaign.”


Executive Director Igor Volsky of rabid anti-gun group, Guns Down America, accused the Biden Administration of breaking its promises to the anti-gun lobby.  Anti-gun zealot Fred Guttenberg also blamed the White House for not getting Chipman confirmed.

But We Are Not Done with Chipman

Even though the Biden Administration is pulling Mr. Chipman’s nomination for head of the ATF, they are still looking for a position for him in occupy. This search for a job leads gun rights advocates to worry that the White House might appoint him to the “Gun Czar.” Biden in the past has considered Beto O’Rourke for the position.

A Czar is a position created within the White House without oversight from Congress. These positions are controversial because there is no oversight from Congress. Many people see these positions as the Executive branch overstepping its boundaries to appoint people to jobs that could never make it through a confirmation hearing.

Gun rights groups are demanding that the White House drop the search for a job for Mr. Chipman. They claim that David Chipman’s inability to make it through a confirmation hearing in Congress should disqualify him for all other positions within the White House, including a “gun czar.”

Gun Owners of America (GOA) Director of Federal Affairs agrees that Chipman is not fit to serve in any position within the federal government dealing with guns. He implores the Biden Administration from trying to find Chipman a job.

“David Chipman’s opposition to the Bill of Rights earned him the opposition of every Republican senator, and unanswered allegations of racism undermined his support among Democratic senators,” Johnston told AmmoLand News.

“Chipman’s disgust for the Second Amendment makes him uniquely unqualified to direct the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives—or any other public office for that matter. The Biden Administration should cease all efforts to ‘find another role” for this anti-constitutional rights activist who failed to earn the support of the United States Senate.”

The battle over David Chipman continues, but gun owners won a hard-fought battle.

Correction: Giffords.org was not founded by Gabby Giffords after being shot IN THE HEAD. It was founded by her scumbag husband, Mark Kelly, after she was shot in the head and permanently brain damaged. Prior to her now reduced mental state and inability to think rationally or independently, she was pro-gun, but her husband has since used her like a puppet, not unlike Sara Brady used Jim, for PR, profit and to successfully run for office on the “pity platform”. The fact that Chipman was hired by and worked for Mark Kelly, who refused to recuse himself from voting on… Read more »

What ever happened to Francis HowdyDoody, anyway? Not that anyone wants to see his ugly mug, but isn’t it odd that Biden didn’t appoint him “AK-14 Confiscation Tsar” on Day One?
If Biden decided not to elevate him because he was clearly objectionable to anyone and everyone with more than two brain cells to rub together, then why the hell would he try to appoint Chipman, who is arguably even WORSE? Is Beto a backup for ATF? Is this a sad attempt at “Bad cop/good cop”…?
None of this makes any sense

Unfortunately not. But to ascend to the presidency from Vice President, one needs to be lawfully elected. She would be no more legitimate than she is now, if the puppet masters dumped Dementia Joe.

Yes, this is the only job for Chipman. Be sent to Afghanistan, Russia, China and Iran and confiscate the $82,000,000,000 in weapons they stole from U.S. with Biden’s help.

Gun Czar?

Constitution of the United States, Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8.

“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”

If Congress does nothing to prevent, “Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”, then Congress is accepting these practices. Then if WE, The People do NOT get hot on the asses of our “Representatives” to break-up this whorehouse, then WE, The People are in acceptance of these practices. Plain and simple.

All true. In essence, the Constitution is just words on parchment. It says “We the People” right at the top for a reason. If we don’t make the words mean something, then they don’t.

Which is it: Trump engineered a delayed-action poison and bragged about it being one of his major accomplishments; or Someone (maybe that guy in London you are always talking about) altered Trump’s wonder drug with Biden’s approval so a higher percentage of Democrats would be killed than Republicans. Trump sees this all going down and does nothing to warn Amercians. Surely, if you are in on the big conspiracy, Trump must know. You claim Biden is working for Patriots. Do the Patriots want to kill tens of millions of Americans? Back in the real world: I don’t care if people… Read more »
