The Biden Administration has nominated former ATF agent and Giffords anti-gun activist David Chipman as Director of the ATF. Chipman was an ATF agent for 25 years (1988-2012) and served as a case agent in the aftermath of the Waco siege.

After leaving the ATF, Chipman immediately dove into anti-gun activism for Bloomberg-founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns where he advocated for “assault weapon” bans, magazine capacity restrictions, and upholding the NFA. In 2016, he became a Senior Policy Advisor for Giffords anti-gun campaign where he is still listed as part of their team.

In 2019, Chipman boldly informed a U.S. House committee, “Simply reinstating the 90s-era ban on assault weapons is not enough… Instead, we should regulate a broader class of firearms, including assault weapons manufactured before the law's enactment...while banning the future manufacture and sale of these firearms.

Chipman has also strongly argued for bans or restrictions on so-called “ghost guns”, targeting the American tradition of home gunsmithing. Meanwhile, he has the audacity to call himself a “proud and responsible gun owner.”
