Americans can have no doubt that Joe Biden’s nominee for ATF director, David Chipman is strongly opposed to the freedoms protected by the Second Amendment. But they may not know that he also isn’t really keen on the First Amendment either. America’s First Freedom reports:
A U.S. Senate vote on President Joe Biden’s (D) anti-gun nominee to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), David Chipman, is expected in the next few weeks. As the Democratic leadership tries to secure the votes to confirm Chipman, more and more keeps coming out on him.
Now, it turns out that Chipman also has disdain for the First Amendment’s protections of free speech.
In an interview discussing “hate speech” with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) two years ago, Chipman spoke flippantly about the American right to free speech as protected by the First Amendment.
“The frustration is in the United States, the freedom of speech and to say things largely cannot be regulated,” he said during a BBC interview. “But yes, we have to do more to monitor hate speech on the internet.”
In the reference, Chipman was referring to law-enforcement personnel not being able to confiscate American citizens’ firearms based on statements they made—words that might be considered to be “hate speech” by some. Chipman actually thinks police officers should confiscate guns from citizens just because he doesn’t approve of something they said.
It’s likely that Chipman might say that he was taken out of context concerning this remark, just as he has done multiple times in the past when his outlandish statements have become public; this includes what he said during his U.S. Senate confirmation hearing. But now Chipman even insinuated that a law allowing the confiscation of guns purely based on what someone might say should be passed.
“The FBI and other federal agencies have a tough job responding to these threats when they don’t currently (emphasis added) have the authority to remove weaponry just because people are saying hateful things,” he said.
Action Line: There is no doubt Democrats are coming for your guns, and probably also for your right to speak freely. Get your guns and your training now because the Second Amendment protects the First Amendment.
