It seems the NRA (delenda est) is arguing that Hunter Biden didn’t necessarity violate the law and lie and his 4473, when he claimed not to be an “unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance.”
The “unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance” prohibited person category is somewhat nebulous, and a person can remove themselves from that category at any time by ceasing to use drugs. Theoretically, Hunter could have been in a period of sobriety during the timeframe he purchased and possessed the revolver. Moreover, the following summary of existing law should not be taken as an endorsement of the current scope of the federal prohibited persons categories.
Bullshit. Biden bought the gun in October 2018. Was he an addict at the time?
Well, we know he had been using illegal drugs before he joined the Navy, because he had to get a waiver. We know he was using illegal drugs in 2013, when the Navy kicked his ass out.
“I have said mean and horrible things to Hallie. Ive been with woman and admitted that. Im an addict. Im loud and brash and difficult. But ‘im loyal to a fault. And so confused. Im trapped clean or dirty sober or not.”
— Hunter Biden, text message dated January 29, 2019
“Im an addict.” 1/29/2019. That pretty documents it. In his own words.
And other material from his abandoned laptop documents still more drug use during that span.
Yes, he broke the law. Anyone not politically connected like Hunter would be in prison.
