Gun grab groups maintain perfect silence after Hunter Biden's sweetheart deal

Yesterday, we learned what a joke the U.S. justice system can be at times, as the crackhead son of the current President skated on felony lying on his ATF 4473 background check form for being a drug addict while applying to purchase a gun. Mind you that Hunter Biden was doing way more than marijuana, which the Biden DoJ still insists makes one a prohibited person; he was an aficionado of hard drugs.


The hypocrisy and double standards are hard to beat. As Cam noted yesterday:

Just last year a Virginia man received four years in federal prison for being an unlawful user of drugs in possession of several firearms, while other U.S. Attorneys around the country have pursued lengthy prison stays for individuals who admitted to smoking marijuana and owning guns. In fact, the federal sentencing guidelines for being an unlawful user of drugs in possession of a firearm is 10-16 months in prison, but based on the reported plea deal Biden won’t even have to acknowledge his guilt or face any consequences whatsoever for what should have been a slam-dunk case for prosecutors given the physical evidence and Biden’s own admission that he was regularly using drugs at the time he purchased a pistol. 


If you’re a 24-year old caught with guns, pot, and a couple of pills you’re going to prison. If you’re the 53-year-old son of the sitting president, however, you can admit that you were smoking crack at the same time you purchased a handgun and you’ll never even face charges for that violation of federal law.

Cam also pointed out how the DoJ still asked for prison time for someone with nearly the same offense as Hunter Biden, and a federal judge overrode sentencing guidelines and gave the man prohibition instead.

The only probationary sentence that I’ve been able to find (admittedly, I’ve not been able to do a deep dive into past cases) involved a Connecticut man named James Holmes, who admitted to ATF agents that he smoked marijuana while owning several firearms. While Holmes received three years probation in that case, it wasn’t because DOJ asked for no prison time. Instead, they requested Holmes be sent away for up to two years after he pled guilty to possession of a firearm by an illegal user of a controlled substance. It was the judge in that case who departed from federal sentencing guidelines, calling it “tragic” to put Holmes behind bars because she believed marijuana would “soon” be legal both federally and in the state of Connecticut.


These double standards are egregious. Hunter Biden’s conduct violated the allegedly “common sense gun laws” that the gun grabbers at Everytown, Giffords, Moms Demand, Brady, and Violence Policy Center keep crowing about. So what have these groups done in the wake of yesterday’s news?

Everytown tweeted about the possibility of Congress repealing the ATF pistol brace rule, lying and calling it a “law” instead:

Moms Demand Action was busy retweeting propaganda that refused to mention gangs.

Giffords was busy bragging about BSCA with no mention of how the President’s son got away with it:


Brady was tweeting about their “fearless leader” Kris Brown who is too fearful to tweet about Hunter Biden’s sweetheart deal:

Meanwhile, VPC was taking a victory lap over the latest infringements by Connecticut on our right to keep and bear arms:

The hypocrisy doesn’t end there. Hunter’s then-girlfriend, who also happened to be his sister-in-law, took his gun and tossed it into a trash can which was within a school’s gun-free zone. This violates all the “safe storage” and theft/loss reporting laws that these gun grab groups demand. Again, a cat got their tongues and these groups didn’t say a word.

Is it usual for people to get away with breaking the law like this? What about the rich and famous? It doesn’t appear to be the case. Rapper Kodak Black was sentenced to more than three years in prison for essentially the same charge. Lil Wayne was sentenced to a year in prison. Being rich in and of itself doesn’t seem to help; it’s political connections as in the case of Hunter Biden.


Gun controllers are playing the long game. They know which side their bread is buttered, so they won’t say anything against the double standards on full display here. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds. The next time they call for more “common sense” gun laws, point out this travesty of justice and their hypocrisy to them. Resist any of their demands and appeals for “compromise” because we all know what their end goal is.
