The Biden admin. is expected to nominate David Chipman, a former federal agent & adviser at the gun control group Giffords to be ATF director. If confirmed, Chipman would be the agency’s first permanent director since ’15 (w/ @AamerISmad & @ajjaffe) https://t.co/xO6sOx3rzX

His nomination is being praised by many as the bureau needs a strong and experienced leader to stop the massacres, and Chipman fits in the role as a former ATF special agent.
They believe David will be able to address the most pressing issues facing the bureau with ease, according to the New York Times.
However, it might be hard for him to collect 51 votes needed for confirmation due to his prior advocacy of an assault weapons ban and the decision of the Senate Republicans to block potential A.T.F. directors who were much more in line with their pro-gun base.
