Il candidato Biden ATF ha rilasciato dichiarazioni discutibili sui soppressori, armi automatiche

I sostenitori del controllo delle armi hanno elogiato la nomina di Chipman, per il quale era un agente speciale dell'ATF 25 anni e 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, d'altra parte, 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 dichiarazione.

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