American President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden have committed a felony offense, which can result in 10-year’s imprisonment. According to media reports, Hunter Biden has battled drug addiction through much of his adult life, and was discharged from the Navy in 2014 after failing a drug test. The president’s son was stopped by police with a crack pipe in his car in 2017, and an assailant aimed a gun at him while he was trying to purchase cocaine in Los Angeles in 2016. But, Joe Biden and his Democratic Party comrades, with the help of left-leaning media outlets are going to hide all of the criminal pasts of Hunter Biden. They even have arranged a publisher for him to publish a memoir on his “struggle with addiction” next month, which may generate millions of dollars for the Joe Biden’s son.
According to Politico, Hunter Biden may have committed a felony offense by lying on a background check before purchasing a gun.
But, Hunter Biden answered “no” in response to the question – “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” as part of the background check. The check was administered on the Firearms Transaction Record Biden filled out in order to purchase a .38 revolver on October 12, 2018.
Copies of the transaction record, and a receipt for the gun, were obtained by Politico for a report on Secret Service agents allegedly intervening after President Biden’s daughter-in-law threw the gun into a trash receptacle.
Felony offense by Joe Biden’s son and daughter in law
Secret Service agents allegedly involved themselves in an incident in which Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law Hallie threw a gun belonging to her husband Hunter Biden in the trash outside a grocery store, Politico reported Thursday.
The alleged involvement of the Secret Service in the incident would be inappropriate given that the incident was investigated by Delaware police and the FBI, and because Joe Biden was not under Secret Service protection at the time, law enforcement officials told Politico.
“US Secret Service records confirm that the agency did not provide protection to any member of the Biden family in 2018, and that the Secret Service had no involvement in this alleged incident,” the agency said in a statement.
On October 23, 2018, Hallie Biden took a .38 revolver belonging to Hunter and placed it in the trash outside Janssen’s Market in Wilmington, Del. After informing Hunter the same day, he told her to go back and retrieve the gun, however the gun was missing from the trash can when Hallie returned to get it.
Hallie told the store manager, who passed the information along to Delaware police. According to the police report, which was obtained by Politico, the incident caused heightened concerns because the store was across the street from a high school, and officers worried the gun could be used in a crime. The FBI, which was investigating Hunter’s taxes at the time, also reportedly responded to the incident.
At the same time that Delaware police were questioning Hallie and Hunter, two Secret Service agents arrived at StarQuest Shooters & Survival Supply, the gun shop where Hunter bought the revolver, two people familiar with the incident said. The agents asked owner Ron Palmieri to turn over the Firearms Transaction Record Hunter filled out in order to purchase the gun.
Palmieri refused, however, reportedly because he suspected that the agents wanted to hide Hunter’s ownership of the gun. The ownership records fall under the purview of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and Palmieri handed the records to the ATF a day after the incident. Palmieri declined to comment to Politico.
Hunter Biden admitted in December 2020 that the FBI and IRS were investigating his “tax affairs,” referencing the probe open at the time of the alleged incident involving his revolver.
Joe Biden has issued multiple statements in support of his son, who has struggled with drug addiction throughout his adult life, stating he was “deeply proud” of his son.
According to Politico reports, Hunter Biden may have lied on Form 4473 while buying a gun in 2018, and that, sometime later, his girlfriend threw that gun into the trash can across the street from a school:
On Oct. 23, 2018, President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and daughter in law Hallie were involved in a bizarre incident in which Hallie took Hunter’s gun and threw it in a trash can behind a grocery store, only to return later to find it gone.
Lying on the form is a felony, though prosecutions for it are exceedingly rare.
For those who don’t know, Form 4473 is a mandatory piece of paperwork that everyone who purchases a gun from a commercial dealer must complete (along with an instant background check). Form 4473 is designed to ensure that the purchaser is eligible to buy a firearm; to confirm that he is buying the firearm for himself, as opposed to on behalf of someone else; and to create a record of the sale that is kept by the gun store and the purchaser, but not by the government. Among the questions on 4473 are:
Are you the actual transferee/buyer of the firearm(s) listed on this form and any continuation sheet(s)?
Are you under indictment or information in any court for a felony, or any other crime for which the judge could imprison you for more than one year, or are you a current member of the military who has been charged with violation(s) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and whose charge(s) have been referred to a general court-martial?
Have you ever been convicted in any court, including a military court, of a felony, or any other crime for which the judge could have imprisoned you for more than one year, even if you received a shorter sentence including probation?
Are you a fugitive from justice?
Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance? Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside.
Have you ever been adjudicated as a mental defective OR have you ever been committed to a mental institution?
Have you ever been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions?
Are you subject to a court order, including a Military Protection Order issued by a military judge or magistrate, restraining you from harassing, stalking, or threatening your child or an intimate partner or child of such partner?
Have you ever been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence, or are you or have you ever been a member of the military and been convicted of a crime that included, as an element, the use of force against a person as identified in the instructions?
Have you ever renounced your United States citizenship?
Are you an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States?
It seems almost certain that Hunter Biden lied when answering the question, “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” He was discharged from the Navy Reserve for drug use in 2013; has had constant drug addiction problems since that time, including repeated stints in rehab; and, in 2019, was kicked out of a strip club for smoking crack. Which matters, because under federal law it is a felony for any person in connection with the acquisition or attempted acquisition of any firearm or ammunition from a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector, knowingly to make any false or fictitious oral or written statement or to furnish or exhibit any false, fictitious, or misrepresented identification, intended or likely to deceive such importer, manufacturer, dealer, or collector with respect to any fact material to the lawfulness of the sale or other disposition of such firearm or ammunition under the provisions of this chapter . . .
The punishment for this crime is up to ten years in jail.
Politico notes that “prosecutions for it are exceedingly rare,” which is true. But this raises more questions than it answers — among them: “Why is this true?” “What is the point in Form 4473 if it’s ignored?” “And why, given that we are not bothering to prosecute people who lie about being eligible for own guns, is Joe Biden so keen to add new gun-control laws to the books?”
Over and over again, Joe Biden and his party insist that we need to add more bureaucracy into the gun-buying process. Indeed, were “universal background checks” to be imposed upon the 37 states that have thus far declined to add them, Form 4473 would be a part of every single gun transaction — including, in many cases, wholly non-commercial transactions. Why, if it’s so obviously pointless?
Everyone needs to note, Joe Biden is the president of the United States now and he is using his position to call for much stricter laws to regulate the exercise of an explicit constitutional right. If he wants to show that he is serious — and, more important, if he wants to show that he’s not trying to create a confusing thicket of rules that will end up being enforced capriciously — he should be in favor of investigating and, if necessary, prosecuting his son and his friends. It is a federal felony to lie on Form 4473. Joe Biden supports this. It is also a federal felony to bring a firearm within one thousand feet of a school. Joe Biden not only supports this, he wrote the law.
With this serious case of felony, we need to remember, mainstream media in the US is in hurry in hiding this from getting much publicized, while, should it be a case related to the family members of Donald Trump, the entire network of left-leaning media would have proclaimed war of words in defaming the former president. Some of the enthusiastic Democratic Party members of the US Congress might have even introduced an impeachment bill. But here in the case of Hunter Biden or President Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law, we are witnessing a total silence.
