What does the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) have to do with guns? Nothing, obviously, since Democrats won’t let us do the sensible thing and arm teachers to fight against mass shooters and other threats that our children may face. But if you ask Joe Biden, the AFT is heavily involved in enforcing firearms legislation — and he just appointed a man to lead them.
In a cringeworthy speech related to Dementia Joe’s new executive orders on firearms, Biden meant to announce that he had nominated David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). Instead, he told the crowd that he had appointed Chipman to the “AFT” because “”David knows the AFT well.”
While it is true that the AFT endorsed Biden for President in 2020, it’s not likely that the teachers union will strongarm and harass gun owners like the ATF will under Joe Biden’s watch. The AP reports:
Chipman spent 25 years as an agent at the ATF, where he worked on stopping a trafficking ring that sent illegal firearms from Virginia to New York, and served on the ATF’s SWAT team. Chipman is a gun owner.
He is an explosives expert and was among the team involved in investigating the Oklahoma City bombing and the first World Trade Center bombing. He also was involved in investigating a series of church bombings in Alabama in the 1990s. He retired from the ATF in 2012.
During his campaign, Biden promised to prioritize new gun control measures as president, including enacting universal background check legislation, banning online sales of firearms and the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
“They’ve offered plenty of thoughts and prayers, members of Congress, but they have passed not a single new federal law to reduce gun violence,” Biden said during his announcement, a sign that Democrats plan to attack gun owners via legislation. “Enough prayers, time for some action.” Biden also informed Americans of something terrifying — “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute” in his eyes.
Biden is clearly not mentally fit for the job. Even before the election, leftists expressed concern over Biden’s cognitive abilities, and much of the world has seen that they are in decline. But propped up by the media figuratively and his wife literally, this mentally unstable elderly man is inexplicably allowed to lead our nation into oblivion.
