On Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at 10 a.m. EDT., President Joe Biden’s nominee to be the new Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Director, David Chipman, will testify in front of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. It is critical that all members of the firearm and ammunition industry, as well as supporters of the Second Amendment, contact their U.S. senators and urge them to oppose Chipman’s nomination to be Director of ATF, including for the numerous reasons highlighted here. During the committee hearing, Chipman will be forced to answer questions about his staunch gun control agenda, including having called for banning AR-15 style rifles, implementing “universal background checks” and instituting national gun registries, as well as his denigration of gun buyers. Chipman is still employed by Giffords gun control group for whom he lobbied. He was also a lobbyist for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown gun control group and still serves as an advisor. NSSF® vehemently opposes Chipman’s nomination as someone who is entirely unqualified to hold a position of public trust. Gun control proponents are already making a full court press for senators to approve Chipman for the post. The entire firearm and ammunition industry, and all supporters of the Second Amendment, must make their voices heard in opposition to Chipman’s nomination.
