What an embarrassment.
Biden’s ATF chief called for an assault weapons ban.
Yet he can’t even define what an assault weapon is.
Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas got the ball rolling by asking Chipman to define the term “assault weapon,” to which Chipman replied that an assault weapon is anything that Congress defines as such.
Cotton wasn’t buying Chipman’s dissembling remarks, and pressed him to personally define it. Chipman once again refused to do so, instead citing a demand letter to border state gun shops that requires reporting of multiple sales of “assault weapons,” which the ATF defined as any semi-automatic rifle over .22 caliber that can accept a detachable magazine.
As Cotton pointed out, that would cover virtually every modern sporting rifle today.
