From the CCRKBA . . .

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today is demanding an immediate investigation into allegations that David Chipman—nominated to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives—made a derogatory comment about African American ATF agents “cheating” to pass an agency selection exam while he was serving with the agency in Detroit in 2007.

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said the allegations are “alarming and incredibly disturbing.”

“With the racist history of gun control and past racist enforcement practices going back to Reconstruction,” Gottlieb said, “the last thing we need is someone heading ATF who not only wants to ban black guns, but also denigrates black people, including his own colleagues.

“It’s impossible for the Biden administration to not have known about this,” he continued. “A watchdog group has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit concerning this allegation, and we believe this must be investigated, or Chipman’s nomination should be rejected immediately.”

According to a report at The Daily Caller, Chipman allegedly remarked to a fellow ATF agent in Detroit, “Wow, there were an unusually large number of African American agents that passed the exam this time. They must have been cheating.” The story said the alleged remark was reported to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the story said Chipman told Sen. Ted Cruz in writing that two EEOC complaints “had been resolved without any finding of discrimination and no disciplinary action was taken against me.”

“This is a serious issue,” Gottlieb stated, “and it needs to be investigated now, before the Senate is asked to take any action. If Chipman made such a statement, it’s a slap in the face to millions of African American gun owners, and Democrats should be ashamed and embarrassed that Biden nominated him for such an important position.

“Chipman’s nomination has already raised several red flags for America’s gun owners,” he noted, “but this new allegation is simply toxic and we cannot allow the Biden administration and Senate Democrats to just ignore it. If that’s the course they plan to take, then Chipman’s nomination must be rejected.”


With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

    • Attempting to hold chipmonkey accountable for denigrating Black Agents is a good thing and a start. However holding Gun Control accountable for what it did to Black Americans throughout history should be Center X. Until that happens and Gun Control is seen in the same light as its noose, slave shack, gas chamber and concentration camp relatives everything else is toothless…And the guilty as sin democRat Party continues to skate on by.

      The people throughout history who were on the receiving end of Gun Control deserve better Mr. Gottlieb et al.

      • While what you say is true, in Gottlieb’s defense, going after people for comments made 15 years ago seems to be the way to gain the most traction these days. You got to go with what works. This is in no way meant as a defense of Chipman.

      • He’s just a good ‘ol boy
        Never meaned no harm …

        🎶 He’s just a good ‘ol boy
        Never meaned no harm …🎶

        I fixed it for you. I think. I know zilch about music note symbology. Opossums are naturally musical creatures. Maybe our own resident Possum will offer some insight.

  1. “…It’s impossible for the Biden administration to not have known about this…”

    Not such a BFD. How about the vids and tapes of Biden himself making racist comments as a senator and candidate for various offices, particularly concerning forced school bussing? Or how ’bout them 7-11 owners? There is nearly no end to his idiotic, as well as racist statements. Can you imagine if Lawrence Jones would get to pin him with a question and follow-up? It’d likely make his “You’re full of shit, man” statement sound like a compliment.

    Everyone knows a Progressive/Leftist/Democrat cannot be racist, just like the not-so-Revernd Al has claimed that it is impossible for a black person to be racist no matter what he/she/it says or does.


    • When a Dem makes a racist comment, it’s immediately forgiven. No one even hears it. When an R makes a similar comment, he’s canceled for life. Surrender your weapons, your driver’s license, lose your job, lose your wife, kids, and home – the only place to go is into the homeless camps with all the winos and drug addicts.

    • Seems to me that Biden boasted on nationally televised dem. party debates that he was from Delaware. it’s a slave state. So proud of his bigotry.

  2. Sounds like he is well qualified for any positions the Democratic Party has to offer. He exemplifies everything they stand for.

  3. ““With the racist history of gun control and past racist enforcement practices going back to Reconstruction,” Gottlieb said,…”

    I am so happy Alan Gottlieb is banging that drum as as Deborah does here. I hope he keeps it up.

    Because it is the fucking truth.

    Gun control (Gun ‘Safety) is, at it’s heart, making sure the “wrong people” (of the wrong color) don’t get guns…

  4. I’d reckon them people get a laugh out of when a citizen demands something.
    ” Oh look someone else is demanding, like what they gonna do, file a complaint? Har Har Har”. “Hey Chip you see this?”
    Yeah I did, probably some nig, err I mean Black guy.

  5. The fool is a much bigger fool than I gave him credit for!

    “While at ATF I conducted studies involving people who failed background checks to determine how many later committed crimes with a gun – many did. This is a perfect opportunity to arrest people before committing crimes rather than responding after the fact,” Chipman said during the Reddit event.

    Chipman also incorrectly claimed during the Reddit event that Branch Davidian members shot down two government helicopters using .50-caliber Barrett rifles during the Waco siege in 1993.


    • More likely to be shot down by all the agents not wanting to carry ammo home.

      Much like the agents on the roof.

  6. This knucklehead is a red herring…. It’ll look like a huge victory if he’s not confirmed and they’ll just appoint some other stooge just as bad. Either way I wouldn’t let this creeper around children….

    • Who else could be nominated? Diane Feinstein? Space Cadet Mark Kelly? Gabby Giffords?

  7. How typical. At their core the leftist is exactly what he claims to hate. Leftism and racism go hand in hand. The biggest racists I’ve ever met have always been democrats and leftists.

  8. Ordinarily I wouldn’t give a damn about such things, but in this case? TASTE OF YOUR OWN MEDICINE ASSHOLE.

  9. Racism, like all -isms, is okay when they do it.
    Shit, it’s rewarded when they do it.

  10. It’s about past time for this. And it’s not fighting dirty. It’s a fact gun control is still racist. Every real freedom supporter should be doing this at every meeting where gun control is being considered.
    I will never understand why “gun people” are so unwilling to call a gun grabber a racist supporter of gun control. Because it’s true. If you support gun control you are a racist.

  11. Let the supposedly racist comments, seemingly having been found not racist slide. His other comments, about which there is no question are more than enough to eliminate Chipman.

  12. Gee. I built an astronomical telescope in high school. Does that make me a criminal and a “prevert?”……. [mispelling is intentional]
    After high school, I took classes and started cutting gem stones and making jewelry.
    Since I made numerous slides for bolo ties, does that make me a strangler?
    I started handloading my own ammo for target matches as far back as 1970. I guess the ATF must consider me a terrorist.
    What do we consider the ATF as? I remember them breaking into a Washington, D.C. apartment in around 1970, and shooting and crippling a private citizen because he had a deactivated hand grenade (just like the ones often sold as paperweights for peoples’ desks), and he had a muzzleloading pistol. – If that man is still alive, he is STILL crippled for life! WHAT KIND OF TERRORIST ORGANIZATION DOES THAT MAKE THE ATF?

  13. I don’t care if Chipman is a racist or not. He participated in the slaughter of innocent American citizens! Then took the time to pose for photographs over the smoldering remains.

  14. According to the account, the alleged statement was submitted to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and Chipman informed Sen.
