The Senate Judiciary Committee split along party lines in their vote to advance his nomination to a full Senate vote.

Republicans spoke out prior in opposition to his nomination.

Senator Chuck Grassley said, “Mr. Chipman wants to ban assault weapons, this nomination is like a Republican putting the NRA in charge of ATF.”

Democrats also spoke out in favor of his nomination.

Senator Dianne Feinstein said that Chipman was the “leader that ATF needs.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin said in a statement “This nomination is a test. Can we put someone in charge of the ATF?”

What does this split vote mean?

While Chipman has been defeated, for now, the Democrats and gun grabbers in Congress can still figure out a way to push him through if they try hard enough.

This split vote in the confirmation means that if Democrats want to proceed with this nominee then they have to jump through a variety of procedural hurdles, if they do proceed that means they really believe that they can push him through the Senate.

Push him through? Yea, it would be best to just push him right out of the door and lock it behind him.

Typical weasel. Nobody should risk surrendering a firearm to him. He’d just lose it. Besides, he’s not capable of managing a renegade organization like the ATF. He’s all about confiscating legal firearms from peaceable, lawful citizens. He’s supposed to catch bad guys but apparently he doesn’t know much beyond being an office pinky.

Chipman is no hero, but his past says, he is a real zero. a radical gun confiscation nut, that we can’t allow to run this corrupt organization.

First off everyone on the side of the Bill of Rights should stop using the term “Assault Weapon”. There is no such thing. “Assault Weapon” is a Democrat Crime Organization created propaganda term to demonize the news evolution in Sporting Arms. All sporting arms have characteristics in common with military arms because sportsmen and the military use their arms in common environments that require the same durability and reliability. Chipman and his Democrat Crime Organization masters are tyrants who have no love for the Bill of Rights. Gun Control is not just controlling the lawful citizens’ right to own and bear arms it is Anti-Bill of Rights. Obama and Biden have both made comments that the Bill of Rights is an article of negative rights which prevent the Government from controlling the people. The Dems have demonized it as being racist and passe’. The Founders declared the Bill of Rights a documentation of GOD Given Rights no person shall tamper with or infringe upon. That means no person no matter their station of life in our society may amend or abridge any part of the Bill of Rights. To dip even one toe into those waters is a slippery slope into tyranny. So when you review all the Founders commentaries, speeches and journal statements on the Bill of Rights you can reach only one conclusion. All laws hindering a lawful citizen from walking in an establishment that lawfully markets firearms and buying the weapons of his or her choice and walking out with it is Unlawful and most likely treasonous. That applies to all current and proposed Anti-Bill of Rights firearms legislation.

you hit it absolutely right. what the general anti-gun” person doesn’t realize is why we have a 2nd amendment. Last year there wear over twice as many hunting license’s sold than there are active military personal. With the second phase of the destruction of America the people must not be able to resist and they are ready to implement that phase now… Only Americans with guns stand in the way…

Chipmunk has the potential to cause nationwide non-compliance with far more than just his ATF nonsense.

Chipman is a complete moron. When asked what the definition of an assault rifle was(there is no such thing), he could not even give a bullshit description of one.
