Chipman goes down in flames

Big win for 2A!

The Washington Post reports that Biden’s nominee to head the ATF David Chipman is being withdrawn.

The official White House presser tries to blame Republicans:

“… Republicans in Congress have made clear that they intend to use gun crime as a political talking point instead of taking serious steps to address it. That’s why they’ve moved in lockstep to block David Chipman’s confirmation …”

Ok, but did Chuck Schumer try to salvage the nomination like The Hill suggested back in June?

“… The tied committee vote Thursday means Chipman’s nomination will still be put to a full vote on the Senate floor, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will have to navigate some procedural hurdles …”

Did Chuck do any of this?  No.

Chipman worked for the gun control group Giffords. The antis put everything they had behind him, knowing he’d be their shill, and they lost big-time. I suspect this humiliation will also doom any new gun control at the federal level for the rest of Biden’s term in office.
