The National Sheriffs’ Association has written a letter to the Biden Administration denouncing their choice for ATF director, David Chipman.
The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) represents more than 3,080 elected law enforcement agents across the country and it was with this in mind that the organization thought to oppose the nomination of David Chipman.
The letter reads:
The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) is proud to represent the more than 3,080 men and woman around the country who have been elected to serve as Sheriff of their county. With these men and women in mind, NSA writes to you regarding the nomination of Mr. David Chipman to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Unfortunately, it is after much deliberation that NSA must oppose this nomination,
This letter might serve as a death blow to the Chipman nomination. Law enforcement tends to support nominees like this but it would appear that Chipman’s record on issues pertaining to law enforcement has disqualified him from holding this support.
