he ATF is the federal agency tasked with enforcing the nation’s gun laws and regulating the firearms industry.
President Biden nominated David Chipman to lead the ATF, but the confirmation is in jeopardy, despite Chipman’s impressive credentials. Senate GOP Whip John Thune reported that Republicans are united in their opposition, and a handful of Democrats are on the fence. The NRA and Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation have spent more than $4 million to block the nomination, continuing their relentless strategy of weakening the agency.
We need your help to get all 50 Democrats and Independents on board. If you know people in Arizona, Maine, Montana or West Virginia, please reach out to them and ask them to contact their Senators in support of Chipman’s nomination.
And, whether or not you know people in the four states, please call Senators Blumenthal and Murphy to let them know you want them to do everything they can to get Chipman confirmed. Your support strengthens their position.
