Die ATF-benoemde kandidaat het twyfelagtige uitsprake oor onderdrukkers gelewer, outomatiese wapens

Advokate vir geweerbeheer het die benoeming van Chipman geprys, wat 'n spesiale agent van ATF was vir 25 jare en currently serves as senior policy adviser to gun violence prevention group Giffords, highlighting the significance of the ATF director’s role in enforcing gun laws.

Gun rights advocates, aan die ander kant, have expressed alarm at Chipman’s stances on gun-related topics, including suppressors and assault weapons.

Anyone who has worked in law enforcement for as long as I have will tell you that silencers were not designed to protect hearing, they were designed to make it difficult for people to identify the sound of gunfire and locate active shooters,” Chipman said in a 2017 verklaring.

Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), a gun violence prevention group where Chipman previously served, gesê in 'n 2017 tweet opposing the Hearing Protection Act that earplugs protect gun owners better than silencers.
