Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has been charged with a number of crimes, including gun possession. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Hunter Biden did, in fact, lie on his background check form to purchase a firearm while using drugs. Lawyers for the Hunter have announced that the Second Amendment itself will be used as a legal defense if Hunter is charged with a crime related to that purchase.
According to new reporting from Politico, “Hunter Biden could soon find himself in a surprising position: at the cutting edge of the fight to strengthen the Second Amendment.”
The Politico article stated: “The president’s son is the target of a Justice Department investigation scrutinizing his purchase of a gun in 2018 — a time when he has said he was regularly using crack cocaine. Federal law bans drug users from owning guns…
His lawyers have already told Justice Department officials that, if their client is charged with the gun crime, they will challenge the law under the Second Amendment, according to a person familiar with the private discussions granted anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly. That could turn a case that is already fraught with political consequences into a high-profile showdown over the right to bear arms.
The dispute would come as the White House fights to tighten gun laws. And it could put conservative gun-rights enthusiasts, who typically criticize the Biden family, in unusual alignment with the president’s son.”
So get this straight, Hunter’s legal team doesn’t have a defense that will seek to disprove Hunter was using crack when he bought a firearm, they’re claiming that doing so shouldn’t be illegal because the Second Amendment guarantees his right to keep and bear arms, no matter what extracurricular activities he engaged or engages in.
Dana Loesch pointed out, every Democrat advocating for stricter gun control laws should be forced to answer whether they support Hunter Biden’s decision to use the Second Amendment to defend (what he claims) is his right to buy and bear arms while admittedly using crack cocaine multiple times an hour.
The crazy thing is his lawyers basically admit (beyond what Hunter already confessed in his book) that he used crack while purchasing and carrying:
"Lawyers for Biden told the Justice Department they will use the Second Amendment as defense for his purchase if he is charged"
