(RepublicanWire.org) – Hunter was discharged from the U.S. Navy Reserve in 2014 after he tested positive for cocaine. Eleven days after, Hunter illegally purchased a firearm.
On a firearm transaction report, Hunter answered no when questioned if he was an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance.
Making a false statement on a federal criminal background check, known as ATF Form 4473, is a violation of federal law under Section 922(a)(6) of the U.S. criminal code.
It also could violate Section 922(g)(3), which prohibits a drug user from possessing a firearm with ammunition.
It was later discovered that Hunter’s lover Hallie, the widow of his late brother Beau Biden, threw the gun into a supermarket garbage can, which triggered a Secret Service, FBI, and Delaware State Police investigation.
In leaked text messages from 2019, Hunter said the FBI had gotten involved in the case.
“She stole the gun out of my trunk lock box and threw it in a garbage can full to the top at Jansens,” he said.
“Then told me it was my problem to deal with. Then when the police the FBI (and) the secret service came on the scene she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids.”
In another chain of text messages, Hunter added: “I freaked when I saw it was missing 10 minutes after she took it and when she went back to get it after I scared the s*** out of her it was gone which led to the state police investigation of me. True story.”
Nobody was ever charged or arrested.
Now a new video has been leaked. In the video, a naked Hunter casually waves around a handgun and even points it at the camera while cavorting with a nude hooker in a swank hotel room.
The video of Hunter Biden holding the apparently illegally obtained weapon emerged amid the rash of mass shootings — and random gun violence in major cities — that included 11 incidents on Saturday and Sunday alone that left at least 15 people dead and 61 injured across the U.S., data shows.
It also came just days after his dad called on Congress to pass new gun-control measures to stem the slaughter, declaring in a televised, primetime address last week that “the Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute.”
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) slammed the apparent hypocrisy.
“Before proposing or passing any new federal gun legislation the Biden administration sought to enforce existing laws, regardless of who is violating them, even if that person is the president’s son.
“I’ve written oversight letters to the U.S. Secret Service, FBI and ATF regarding the incident involving Hunter’s gun dumped in a trash can behind a grocery store across from a high school in Delaware,” added Johnson, who’s been investigating the Biden family’s controversial overseas business dealings.
“Unsurprisingly, I have not gotten a satisfactory response from these agencies.”
