Joe Biden’s pick to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is a gun control activist who has pushed conspiracy theories about the Waco Siege.
During a Senate hearing this week, he admitted that he wants to ban certain weapons.
This man has no business heading the ATF.
ATF Nominee Offers ‘Insanely Broad’ Definition of ‘Assault Weapon,’ Which He Wants Banned
Under questioning from Texas Senator Ted Cruz Wednesday during his confirmation in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms openly stated he believes the AR-15, the most popular rifle in the United States, should be banned.
Further, he said he believes AR-15s that have already been purchased lawfully by millions of Americans should be registered and those who refuse to do so should face criminal charges.

Chipman also gave a bizarre answer when asked to define what an assault weapon is.

“Assault weapon” is a made up term by anti-gunners to scare Americans.— NRA (@NRA) May 27, 2021
But, to gun control lobbyists, “assault weapons” are EVERY semi-auto firearm – including and especially the ones law-abiding Americans use to defend ourselves, our families and communities. @SenJohnKennedy pic.twitter.com/7sLE0sBAz9

Just listen David Chipman's answer... 😡
This man should be nowhere near a position of power. pic.twitter.com/rkapzA7Q8m
The Senate should NOT confirm this man to the ATF.
