Joe Biden is trying to ram through as many radical leftist nominees through Congress as he can.
He wants to make sure nothing is safe from his radical socialist agenda.
But Biden’s ATF nominee just got stalled by the last person you’d expect.
Joe Biden’s pick for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, David Chipman, is one of the most anti-gun people in the country.
And it’s no secret that Biden is pushing him so he can restrict the right to bear arms for law-abiding gun owners.
During Congressional hearings, Chipman expressed his support for expanded background checks – the first step to registration and confiscation.
He went further saying that he wants to see so-called “assault weapons” restricted, without defining what he means by the term.
Naturally, Republicans and gun rights activists are galvanized against Chipman’s appointment.
“I can’t think of a single Republican at this point who I would expect to lose on that,” said Senate GOP Whip John Thune (R-SD).
But with the Senate split 50-50, the Republicans need at least one Democrat to jump ship to stop his confirmation.
And it looks like they may not be in short supply.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Sen. John Hickenlooper (D-CO), and Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) have all expressed their concern about Chipman’s radical stances on gun issues, and none of them have indicated they have decided which way they will vote.
“I just want to get the right person for the job, that’s all,” Mr. Tester said.
Chipman’s lukewarm reception by Senate Democrats doesn’t bode well for his chances of being confirmed, though he was able to pick up Sen. Maggie Hassan’s (D-NH) support.
Unfortunately for Biden, his hopes of ripping guns from the hands of law-abiding citizens is stuck in the mud and is looking like it’s bound to fail.
