I copied and pasted this from an email I just received. LET"S TAKE ACTION NOW!

Oppose Chipman ATF Nomination
The administration has nominated a gun-grabber to head the ATF! We need you to act now!


How high will your NFA bill go?

How many ARs do you own?
How about AKs? Scorpions? M1As? Mp5 clones? Tavors?
Got a pistol brace?
How many magazines do you own that are capable of holding more than 10
rounds?

Joe Biden wants every single “assault weapon” – and it’s up to him and the
Democrat-controlled Congress to define the term – regulated under the National
Firearms Act. He wants standard-capacity magazines registered with NFA too – as
if that’s even possible.

The NFA currently requires a $200 payment for every single item in the registry.
So, for most gun owners – if they’re forced to register their firearms and mags it
will be an expensive proposition, likely costing tens of thousands of dollars.
Sure, it’s easy to say you won’t comply, but that’s not the point. We at Florida
Carry don’t want our members to be put in that position. We don’t want anyone to
have to choose between obeying the law or becoming a federal felon. We want to
derail that train long before it leaves the station.

Unfortunately for gun owners, Biden has found the perfect little troll to help him
carry out his nefarious plans – David Chipman – whom he nominated to run the
ATF.

Chipman is a shifty little fella who has dedicated his entire life to infringing upon
your Second Amendment rights, first as an ATF agent and later as a paid anti-gun
activist for Everytown and the Giffords.

During his confirmation hearing, Chipman couldn’t even define an “assault
weapon,” but he was adamant he wants them banned. Putting him in charge of
ATF would be worse than picking shock-jock Howard Stern to run the FCC.
As gun owners who treasure our liberty, we cannot allow the Senate to approve
Biden’s nominee – period.

How can you help?

As switched-on members of Florida Carry, we assume you’ve already contacted
Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott and told them to oppose Chipman’s
nomination, but we need more than that.

We’re asking you to call the Senators’ field offices too – they each have several –
and tell them you oppose Chipman’s nomination. Quite frankly, all we are to the
Senate staffer is a checkmark in their daily pro/con tallies, so you might as well
become a few checkmarks in a few tallies, instead of just one. Please get your
family and friends involved too.

Neither Rubio nor Scott is a dependable Second Amendment supporter. Rubio
recently introduced a federal red-flag bill, and we all know what Scott signed
before he left the governor’s office – the most comprehensive and sweeping anti-
gun bill ever signed into law in the history of Florida. Therefore, they both need to
be reminded that Florida is still the “Gunshine State,” and those gun owners won’t
support anyone who infringes upon our God-given Second Amendment rights.
If you can do more, there are links in this email with which you can send video and
audio messages to Rubio and Scott. The more you can do the safer our gun rights
become.

We’re at an important crossroads. If the Senate rejects Biden’s nominee it will
send a powerful message to the gun grabbers that the people reject their anti-gun
antics. If Chipman gets confirmed, start counting your mags and get your
checkbook handy
.
Respectfully,

Your Florida Carry Board of Directors

Thank you for posting, I have already reached out. The problem I see here is complacency, my fear is the Republican side of things will think because of the gridlock and the “we won’t do anything the Democrats want“ attitude that that people will just think he doesn’t have a chance and do nothing. It is time to make some noise.

Well i am sick and tired of the BS this idiot is spouting about everything . When I addressed something similar , most on here said they do not have the manpower to even implement it . What are we talking about millions of owners in the U.S. ? .. They can kiss my "Red White and Blue Butt" [ Fruit Loops ] !

Now , every Modern gun i have has not only been cleared by Florida , but the 4473 form is in most if not all Transfer 01 gunshops .. I believe that form is a Federal one , stemming from the BATF in Atlanta Ga ? ..So in essence if that's correct , they Already have the information in their computers somewhere .

Never mind the added BS with any firearm that shoots over 2,000 FPS ! My Lord , that's about Every single firearm , except for BB guns . Shark says 'make some noise' -Correct & I say let these Butt wipes try to force me to comply with this insidious Commie Left Wing Crap . At my age i don't give a rollin' at a flying' donut . Also I do not give a damn about my B.P. going up , It's worth it , and WE All have Earned the Right to fight , albeit the Court System That 'They' seem To Own now

P.S. When i got drafted in '65 -'67 , I was willing to lay down my life for this country . I will do the same to Uphold my 2 A rights as well . I'm ready to PUKE.
Yes my friends , THIS is the OTHER side of me !.. I'm So Pissed off :mad:. SO , Contact your Senators to try to slow down any more destruction of our 2A rights.

The problem is that the dimocraps have a big majority in the house and our two senators are bought and paid for gun control maggots ,you can write and e-mail till you turn blue and they will still vote for it. If they do this it could kick off a civil war everyone knows the dimocraps cheated in the election.

You Betcha they did ! ,, Now these idiots are calling it Voter Suppression ? That's because of What they did during the last election , Dumping votes , not Counting votes and Mailing out Multiple blank ballots to the same address . It was proven in many states that DEAD people got them and sent them BACK IN ? ? ? . Now that's a trick I'd love to see .This is UNREAL :mad:

So what are the Dumbocrats doing Now , Trying to destroy the Whole Constitution and every amendment in it . RINO'S Galore and who is suffering now ? Yep you got it , WE The People Are the one's that's who . That's going to have to STOP very very Soon Too !

P.S. - I hate to bring politics into this site , BUT this hits right between the eyes. Not just US , but All who are going to follow us as well . Yes Our Children/ Grand children and Their's also . Wake Up America and Now !

Gunner, I'm certain virtually everyone here agrees completely this is a real travesty, but bear in mind anyone's words written here on this forum don't amount to much to affect the outcome you seek. It's only through actual political activism that may affect change. Words written here on FCC are just words to an internet forum with a limited audience, and none of that audience has any power to directly affect those political outcomes.

OK , understood then . I will not waste anymore of my time, trying to rile up support to get in touch with our political bases then . You are correct i guess , as our votes do not count anymore & the country is doomed.

I have written both our senators, Joe Manchin , Jon Tester, Susan Collins and Kyrsten Sinema to oppose Chipman. They need to hear our voices.

Thank you much Mamiela , hopefully your written words have more weight than the rest of the members on here . The silent majority has never won anything that i know of . Bless you for trying to make Your Words Count at least from here . They Do Matter to Me for example . ;) I guess we should not be discussing Political matters , as this site is for all facets of 2A related things .

That's until we wake up and that Amendment has been destroyed . As one member has stated , then all we legally own shall become 'Paper Weights' . 'They' said this could not ever happen , stay tuned & get out the 🍿

No Gunner, if you are trying to get members to write their Senators, then that is a VERY WORTHWHILE effort!!! From your post #7:

That read more like you wanted members posting here on FCC, which won't have any effect on votes to confirm POTUS's nomination to head the BATFE. Writing their Senators might.

BH .. Sorry as i might have not written it correctly . Yes all my posts/ replies were intended to get members [ and Possibly Their Input ] regarding getting in touch with their Senators /politicians . I just needed to hear that Echoed here .

My intent was to shine a little light , ray of hope on a near impossible situation . I do realize with the current atmosphere with the Dim's , Reality speaks we are all involved with Step #1 'Nationalization of firearms' . Then WHAT ?

This is just Another way to Cut Our Throats with Legislation . They will Not Stop until there's ALL FEDERAL Control and then 'Screw the Constitution' Period .

My hope is when the Senators/Rep's come up for Re election , they will Take Back Both Houses . Until then , Potus will continue with his Executive Orders destroying everything President Trump had in place . Welcome to the 'One Party System '

Understood. We need the Senate to reject this Chipman nomination, but we need both Houses of Congress to work within the U.S. Constitution instead of trying to circumvent it! :mad:

Make no mistake, the guy is plenty smart. He is cagey and clever and hard to pin down with the questioning. He is dangerous because he leans strongly one way. Sadly, we are, by necessity, adopting the same arguments used against Trump court nominees, that the the party in control is nominating someone who leans too much toward their views.

It would be nice to see a nominee more middle of the road but, our political system doesn’t really allow that anymore it seems.
