Sen. Cruz Issues Statement on President Biden Withdrawing His Nomination of David Chipman for ATF Director

September 9, 2021

HOUSTON, Texas - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following statement after news broke that President Biden was withdrawing his nomination of David Chipman to be director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco, and Explosives (ATF):

"President Biden finally withdrew his nomination of David Chipman-a partisan gun control zealot-to be director Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The nomination of Mr. Chipman was an attack on the Second Amendment and an affront to Americans who value freedom, safety, self defense, and the right to keep and bear arms. The Senate has sent a loud, clear, and bipartisan message to President Biden: any nominee to the ATF must respect the Constitution and lawful gun ownership."
