Biden ATF Nominee Shocks When Asked If ‘Law-Abiding’ Gun Owners Are a Threat

David Chipman, who was selected by Joe Biden to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, made a slew of terrifying comments about how he would lead the agency.

During his confirmation hearing Wednesday before the Senate, Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz got Chipman to admit that he supports a ban on one of the most popular guns sold in the United States.

“With respect to the AR-15, I support a ban, as has been presented in a Senate bill and supported by the president,” David Chipman told Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Then, later in the hearing, Chipman — who has served as an adviser to gun control groups — caught many off-guard when he seemed to suggest that “law-abiding” gun owners could be a threat.

During another exchange, Arkansas GOP Sen. Tom Cotton asked Chipman how he would describe an “assault weapon” and his response was equally as terrifying.

Chapman seemed to suggest that any weapon with a “detachable magazine above the caliber of a .22” could be an assault weapon.
