Biden’s Radical Anti-Gun Agenda

  • David Chipman, Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the ATF, is a gun control extremist who attacks law-abiding gun owners and the Second Amendment instead of criminals.
  • Chipman’s nomination proves that Biden is committed to a far-left gun control agenda.
  • Chipman is a far-left ideologue who wants to trample the Second Amendment rights of every American. Chipman is advocating for:
  • It’s abundantly clear that Chipman holds law-abiding gun owners in contempt. Chipman has:
    • Mocked first-time gun owners last year, suggesting they were doomsday preppers and comparing them to Tiger King: “They might think that they’re die-hard, ready to go, but unfortunately they’re more like Tiger King.”  
    • Compared gun owners to people who “want a muscle car” so they can have “outsized power.”
    • Explained: “I think there’s also an element for people who chose not to serve [in the military] that this somehow allows them to connect with that service without them having to do it — like you can kind of act patriotic without having to do it.”
    • Expressed he believes people own guns because they’re “afraid” and want to “feel safe.”
    • Recommended gun owners should “secure that gun locked and unloaded and hide it behind the cans of tuna and beef jerky that you’ve stored in a cabinet and only bring that out if the zombies start to appear.”
  • Chipman has suggested that some people should be arrested even before they commit a crime, but is bizarrely open to reinstating felons’ ability to own a gun after they are released from prison.
  • As radical as his views are, Chipman’s service record also raises serious questions on his competence:
  • During the campaign, Joe Biden said “Bingo, you’re right” to the suggestion that “A Biden Administration means they’re going to come for my guns.” Chipman’s nomination is proof that Biden meant what he said – he’s coming after Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
