The divisive battle over Biden’s pick for ATF head, David Chipman, is raging on and a key voice has come out against his confirmation. Republican Senator Susan Collins has come out to say that she will be a ‘no’ vote when Chipman’s confirmation comes up.

The sportsmen alliance of Maine released Collins’ statement on Chipman’s confirmation. In her statement, she said, “I am concerned that his confirmation would do significant damage to the collaborative working relationship that must exist between ATF, the firearms industry, sportsmen and women, and other law-abiding gun owners exercising their Second Amendment rights.”

Many have already put their foot down when it comes to Chipman, it’s a guaranteed no vote from many of the mainstream voices in the Republican party but that does not mean that his confirmation is not possible.

Chipman only needs 51 votes to get confirmed and even with Susan Collins giving a no there is still the possibility of another Republican going turncoat on this issue. Mitt Romney is an ever-present threat here, Romney could vote to confirm Chipman and that might be the edge Democrats are looking for.

  1. A last ditch effort to save her job but it’s too little too late. She has already been exposed as a democrat pretending to be a conservative, voting to not confirm a liberal hack who is going to get confirmed anyway doesn’t say a thing for her. Stick a fork in her, she is done.

    1. She has been a very good globalist puppet and globalist puppet $oro$ will use voter fraud to reappoint his globalist puppets .

    1. OMG, has anyone listened to this RINO speak?
      She’s too old and absolutely not fit for office.

        1. give her the OLD HEAVE HO to the pasture for old political hags with a ” VOTERS BOOT OUT “

  2. Just when is Utah going to get rid of the disgraceful Romney? The man has turned into a total ass, who can’t wait to throw sand into the gears of government whenever anything seems to be going pro Trump. This man is filled with hate, and is willing to do direct damage to the United States, if he can damage Donald Trump in the process. Utah, WAKE UP!!!

    1. When I was in Utah last October, we passed a large billboard sign on one of the major highways that said: “Hey, Mitt — just quit!” Pretty sure they’re on to him!! 🙂

  3. If Mitt Romney votes to confirm Chapman those who vote in his state should give him his walking papers and they are long over due.

    1. I have a large number of friends and relatives who live in Utah, Robert, and based on what they’re telling me, his walking papers are being prepared!!

  4. This clown wants to outlaw anything larger than a .22 rifle. If you enjoy hunting or shooting you need to tell you senator that if they vote to confirm him you and your family will vote for whoever his opponent is. He is infringing on your 2nd amendment rights

  5. Hey Romney you vote for Chipman and you won’t win a second term. You may even get recalled.

  6. You mean we haven’t been able to get rid of Romney, Sass and Kinzinger yet? The three of them are like anvils around the neck of the Republican Party. Constantly embarrassing us. Thee nit picking nannies craving attention.
