Biden to nominate gun control advocate as ATF director
By Morgan Chalfant - 04/07/21 05:53 PM EDT

President Biden is expected to nominate David Chipman, an adviser at the gun control group Giffords, to serve as his director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), a person familiar with the plans confirmed Wednesday.

Chipman spent more than two decades as a special agent working for ATF and currently works as a senior policy adviser for Giffords, a gun control group formed by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.), who survived a 2011 mass shooting at a shopping center outside Tucson.

The Associated Press and Washington Post first reported on Chipman's expected nomination.

If confirmed, Chipman would be the first permanent director of ATF since 2015. His nomination is expected to be welcomed by gun safety advocates and comes as Biden is preparing a series of executive actions on guns.

Biden is expected to announce the executive actions to curb gun violence on Thursday. Representatives from gun safety groups are expected to attend the announcement.
