Biden Chooses to Rinse and Repeat with New ATF Nominee

Today, the Biden Administration announced the nomination of Steven Dettelbach as the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF”), subject to Senate confirmation. With Dettelbachs nomination, President Biden has chosen to double-down on his attempt to put a gun control advocate in charge of the agency responsible for regulating Americas firearms industry.

David Chipman, Bidens first nominee to head the ATF, failed to achieve enough support in the Senate to be confirmed. After a long campaign by the NRA that featured TV and digital ads, millions of text messages and pieces of mail, town halls in critical states, and an intense lobbying campaign, the Biden Administration withdrew Chipmans nomination.

Like Chipman, Dettelbach is a dedicated gun controller with a background that proves he would be neither fair nor objective as head of ATF. When running for Ohio Attorney General in 2018, Dettelbach endorsed gun bans, restrictions on lawful firearm transfers, and further expansion of prohibitions on who can lawfully possess a firearm. In short, its unclear what gun control measures Dettelbach doesnt support.

This led NRA-PVF to award Dettelbach an F” for his positions on the right to keep and bear arms. Notably, Michael Bloombergs astroturf gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety (David Chipman’s former employer) endorsed Dettelbach in his bid to become Ohios Attorney General.

Ohio voters wisely rejected Dettelbach and his gun control promises in 2018. But, Dettelbachs unpopular views on the Second Amendment put him in line with the most anti-gun presidential administration in American history.

It will once again be up to gun owners to make clear that a failed anti-gun politician has no more place at the head of the ATF than a failed anti-gun lobbyist. Please contact your U.S. Senators using the link below, and respectfully encourage them to oppose Dettelbach’s nomination.

Your NRA will keep you apprised of any updates as Dettelbachs nomination moves forward.
