Because the GW wanted Chaos to be an army highly styled towards close combat. Sure, chaos can shoot pretty well...but will always end up short if for example faced with loyalists. But on the other hand no loyalists are a match for a dedicated CSM HtH army..once it gets into HtH that is..
Deathball, the new game of bloody basketball, 40k style!

+++Excerpt from Last Chaos/Space marine game, commentator: Inquisitor Khalheed "The Purgator" Qhor, Ex-Deathball player+++

Chaos vs Space Marine grudgematch today ended 23-19 when Brother Grazieel decimated the chaos team with a heavy bolter.

Afterwards the Chaos Coach Zhuriel the Damned stated "If we weren't ideologically in favor of cheating we'd complain about this""

That's exactly the reason. Every army has its own style to play, snipers would make chaos more similar to loyal marines but without adding a weakness to balance their good close combat ability.

Why aren't there Chaos Assassins?  The loyal ones already look evil.  Imagine how the chaos ones would look.

There are no Snipers because Space Marine Snipers are Scouts...and Chaos has few Scouts, I would imagine. It would be nearly impossible to get the right amount of dexterity and stealthiness that a sniper requires when wearing power armor.

I disagree that GW wants to make Chaos a close combat oriented army. I agree with the statement that they want their games to have both shooting and close combat.

Also...what self respecting Chaos warrior would hide behind rubble and shoot a quiet little gun? Even Tzeentch would rather do something more interesting if it involved one of his plans.

Then there is all the balance issues that others have brought up.
