According to Politico, President Joe Biden criticized the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in June last year to expand Second Amendment rights, describing it as a disregard for both common sense and the Constitution. Interestingly, this decision could have beneficial implications for Hunter Biden, who is currently being investigated by the Department of Justice for various potential offenses. One of the aspects being examined is whether Hunter Biden provided false information on a federal firearms application in 2018, specifically regarding his alleged drug addiction.
Hunter Biden’s defense team recently referenced a significant ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. This ruling invalidated New York state’s concealed carry law, and the defense team argued that it could potentially lead to the dismissal of any prosecution against Hunter Biden regarding the allegation in question.
During the purchase of the firearm, Biden’s son completed a 4473 form in which he affirmed that he was neither an “unlawful user of, or addicted to,” any “controlled substance.”
It has been noted in Hunter Biden’s 2021 memoir that he openly acknowledged the regular use of crack cocaine during the period when he purchased the firearm.
The Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen has resulted in numerous lawsuits being filed nationwide. These lawsuits specifically challenge various aspects of the federal firearms background check system.
Biden’s team has referred to a specific case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, which encompasses Delaware. In this case, a Pennsylvania man who was denied a gun permit due to a previous misdemeanor conviction is seeking to obtain gun ownership rights, partly based on an opinion expressed by Justice Clarence Thomas.
The case is expected to reach a resolution within the coming months, and its outcome could hold significance for President Biden. It’s worth noting that the investigation is being led by David Weiss, the U.S. Attorney for Delaware, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump.
