Lummis applauds Biden administration decision to withdraw nomination of radical anti-gun activist

September 9, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis applauded today’s news that President Biden will withdraw the nomination of David Chipman, his nominee for the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives, from consideration after months of opposition.

“David Chipman was the wrong man for the job for multiple reasons, but his ignorance of basic firearm classifications should have disqualified him immediately. The responsible gun owners in my state of Wyoming demand a regulator who understands the things they are regulating, not an idealogue bent on taking away our Second Amendment rights.”

In July, Senator Lummis spoke on the Senate floor urging her colleagues to oppose his nomination and to stand up for the Second Amendment rights of the people of Wyoming and across the nation.
