Biden declares war on gun owners, Second Amendment

By nominating David Chipman to run the ATF — a gun control activist who's worked for two national gun control groups — Biden has shown nothing but contempt for our constitutional rights.

Choosing gun control activist David Chipman to run the ATF makes about as much sense as picking Howard Stern to oversee the FCC.

Chipman currently serves as the senior policy advisor for the Giffords gun control group — a position he’s held for five years. Before joining Gabby et al, he was a policy advisor for Everytown for Gun Safety.

Quite frankly, I don’t know which group is worse. Both want total civilian disarmament, and both will use any means necessary to get there.

According to a White House press release sent Wednesday night, the Administration wants even more than an anti-gun toady regulating guns.

They’re going after pistol braces, which they want regulated by the National Firearms Act, and home-builds too are at risk. The DOJ will be issuing proposals to regulate both in the coming months.

I honestly don’t know where this massive anti-gun push is coming from. Based on what I’ve seen of him lately, President Biden can’t complete a sentence without a teleprompter. Someone else is definitely calling the shots.

While I expected the President to go after pistol braces and chase ghosts, the Chipman nomination is a new low for someone who campaigned on unity and inclusion.

It was a slap in the face to everyone who owns a firearm or believes in liberty.

It’s an insult — a poke in the eye with a chainsaw bayonet.

What concerns me about the President’s pick is that Chipman has taken steps to conceal his past and his opinions.

His Twitter account is now private. I requested access to no avail.

This tells me Chipman has contempt for the First Amendment as well as the Second. These are not the actions of a future public official. These are the actions of someone who’s got something to hide. It’s about what I’d expect from a longtime gun control activist.

Despite his attempts to conceal his past, we can get some insight into Chipman’s character and fitness for office through his previous writings and interviews.

He believes ARs should be regulated by the National Firearms Act, and he called sheriffs who remember their oath and refuse to enforce unconstitutional gun laws “renegades.”

Regulating ARs through NFA is laughable. Even if the proposal survived constitutional muster and a slew of civil suits, ATF doesn’t have the manpower to regulate what they’ve got now, much less if Chipman added millions of ARs to their plate.

And his “renegade” comment already has sheriffs buzzing. They’re not pleased — especially our southern sheriffs — and they’re not a good group to piss off.

And, as you’d expect from a gun control activist, Chipman is a microstamping proponent.

“Intentional firearm microstamping offers an important addition to the tools available to law enforcement—it’s time to encourage firearm manufacturers to include this life-saving technology in their products,” he wrote in a 2019 article for Police Chief magazine.

In my humble opinion, anyone who believes in that flawed anti-gun tech — which can be erased in about five seconds with a simple nail file — is somewhat suspect.

It says to me the President’s pick is a theoretical crime fighter, not a real one.

Chipman has mentioned in several interviews that he’s a “gun owner,” as if that lends him some credibility. I take exception to that too. The mere fact he owns a pistol or a shotgun cannot excuse a lifetime of gun control activism.

To be clear, Chipman is the adversary of everyone who respects the Constitution, the Second Amendment and our God-given right of self-defense.

Given his history, he should not be given oversight of the ATF’s vast resources and regulatory authority.

It’s clear Chipman supports confiscation and total civilian disarmament, and now President Biden wants to give him the tools he needs to accomplish this goal.

Now is the time to contact your Senators, regardless of their party affiliation, and tell them to oppose Chipman’s nomination.

I honestly don’t think there could be any candidate who’s worse.

As always, thanks for your time.
