President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms) David Chipman wilted under pressure from GOP Senator Ted Cruz on Wednesday, admitting during questioning that he in fact did want to ban Americans from owning AR-15’s.
Chipman has long been known for his dangerously unhinged views on the Second Amendment as well as being involved in the notorious siege of Waco, Texas which resulted in the deaths of 76 Americans, most of whom were women and children.
Chipman spent 25 years enforcing gun control at the ATF. He is most notoriously known for his involvement with the 51-day siege at Waco. 76 bodies (including 25 children) were found in the aftermath. He took a moment to get a photo-op amongst the remains. pic.twitter.com/qqmlGg1MCL

Yet in spite of Chipman’s insane ant-second amendment stance and highly questionable past if Biden has his way he will be in full control of one of America’s most powerful law enforcement organizations and have the power to target freedom-loving Americans at will.
