David Chipman is probably having a bad day right now…..
The left-wing radical made headlines when Biden announced that he wanted to make Chipman ATF chair; thankfully, those plans were cut short due to bipartisan pushback.
According to sources, The White House is going to pull Chipman’s nomination…..
This is a big victory for us, the lengths Chipman would have gone to would have effectively made us Australia, and no one wants that.
The fact that the pushback didn’t just come from us, but from folks across the isle as well gives me hope for America—we haven’t completely lost our minds as a nation just yet:

BREAKING: White House to withdraw nomination of disgraced David Chipman as head of ATF
— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) September 9, 2021
Just The News had more on the story:
The nominee, a former special agent at ATF and current gun control lobbyist, was scrutinized immediately upon his nomination for his publicly anti-firearm positions.
Moderate Democrat Senators in the evenly-split chamber signaled to the Biden administration that they were not fans of the choice and it was unclear whether Chipman would have made it through a confirmation vote.
The nomination of the wacko of Waco, David Chipman, has been withdrawn!

Successful efforts by Donald Trump Jr and The NRA to push back against Chipman were noted by Breitbart:
Four days later, on July 13, 2021, Trump Jr. doubled down on his efforts against Chipman by urging Democrat senators from red and purple states to oppose Chipman’s confirmation vote this week–and calling on the public to fight back as well by pressuring the senators to vote against him.
The NRA and National Shooting Sports Foundation have also fought long and hard against Chipman’s nomination/confirmation, as have Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and others.
