GOP tears into Biden’s ATF pick for dodging question on Hunter, comparing gun owners to Tiger King

During a heated hearing, Republicans tore into Biden’s pick to head the ATF after he butchered the definition of an assault rifle and refused to commit to investigate Hunter for lying on gun purchase form.

  • Joe Biden’s pick to head the ATF David Chipman was confronted by Republican senators during his confirmation hearing Wednesday 
  • They excoriated the nominee on his definition of assault weapons, refusing to commit to investigate Hunter Biden and comparing gun owners to Tiger King 
  • Chipman deflected before saying an assault weapon is: ‘any semi-automatic rifle capable of accepting a detachable magazine above the caliber of .22’
  • This would ‘include a .223, which is, you know, largely the AR-15 round’ 
  • Senator Lee brought up Chipman’s April 2020 comments mocking first-time gun owners in the midst of the panic at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic 
  • Said at the time: ‘They might think that they’re die-hard, ready to go, but unfortunately they’re more like Tiger King… putting their family in danger’
