Good to hear.  Makes me nervous about who the next choice will be.

Try this
https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/breaking-biden-administration-throws-in-the-towel-withdraws-chipman-nomination-as-atf-director/

Quote from above is spot on. Chipman is simply bizarro Wayne LaPierre (who is actually bizarro Wayne LaPierre, but that's another thread).

Quote
Chipman was always an audacious nomination. Biden trying to install a paid gun control lobbyist to run the nation’s federal firearms regulatory agency was every bit as ballsy as a GOP president nominating Wayne LaPierre. It was always going to provoke tooth-and-nail opposition from the other side, but the White House apparently thought they could brazen it out.

Does she have the mental ability to do that job?  Seriously.  She had/has traumatic brain injury which may make her physically unfit for the job.

You disgusting, misogynist, , ableist bigot! How dare you demand someone be capable doing a job to get appointed to it, particularly a birthing person.
Besides, we have current precedence that shows intact mental facilities are not needed for a position in a democrat administration, they just get a handler/puppet master and go to work.  See how well it's working for Biden...

Probably an anti-gun ahole who was smart enough to not have himself photographed with a gun on the smoking ruins of the Waco siege.

Rumor I heard floating around work is that Chapman was heard telling people at an event that he was a guaranteed appointment, and that within two years of taking office, it would be illegal to touch a gun unless you were in uniform.  The rumor indicates that he said it around some of the Dems who are part of the "we won't take your hunting guns" crowd, who fears a vote confirming him would cost them serious votes from the middle of the spectrum.

When, not if, they finally decide to go that route we can look to Waco and Ruby Ridge to get an idea of how the fed will respond. They've pretty well already told us that they would be willing to use nukes against gun owners. I don't really think some of them are kidding about that.

That is a good point.  However, it will depend on if there are neighbors nearby that also don't want them taking guns away.  Could go a number of ways.

I feel like people keep forgetting that one of the outcomes of Waco and Ruby Ridge was Oklahoma City.  The 90's was a very different culture, but if anything I think crazy folks going hunting for feds if they feel attacked is more likely now.

I'm not saying I endorse the tactic, but it is a pretty easily foreseeable consequence of Feds (or gods help us UN troops) getting heavy handed.

For that matter it's not confined to the right.  Leftists will flat burn .gov buildings down with agents in them.  "Consent of the governed" is getting pretty damn theoretical.
