CCRKBA RESPONSE TO CHIPMAN’S PARTY-LINE VOTE IN SENATE JUDICIARY

Thursday, June 24th, 2021

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms has released the following reaction to Thursday’s party-line vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the nomination of David Chipman to head the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“Today’s party-line vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on David Chipman’s nomination to head the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives underscores the toxicity of his choice by Joe Biden to head the agency,” said Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. “His extremist views on gun ownership, combined with his background as a gun control advocate for the gun prohibition lobby should automatically disqualify him for the position he seeks. CCRKBA will continue to encourage our members and supporters, and millions of honest gun owners to keep contacting their Senate members and urge a ‘No’ vote on his confirmation when it goes before the full Senate.”
