Last Wednesday, President Biden spoke to the press about gun violence and specifically warned gun dealers to not falsify records related to firearms purchases. It turns out that Hunter Biden may have done just that back in 2018 on a firearms transaction record he filled out to purchase a revolver.
On Wednesday, President Joe Biden held a press conference to address soaring crime rates across the country. During his speech, he issued a warning to gun dealers: “If you willfully sell a gun to someone who’s prohibited from possessing it, if you willfully fail to run a background check, if you willfully falsify a record, if you willfully fail to cooperate with the trace or request or inspections, my message to you is this: We’ll find you and we will seek your license to sell guns.”
This comes just three years after his son, Hunter, may have willfully falsified a firearms transaction record when purchasing a weapon.
According to a firearm transaction record from 2018, Hunter Biden answered “no” to this question: “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”
In 2013, Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserves due to cocaine use. And both Hunter and his family have publicly acknowledged his problems with drugs in the past.
All these facts have led some to wonder if Hunter should be investigated for willfully falsifying the report.
“It’s zero-tolerance for gun dealers who willfully violate key existing laws and regulations. I repeat: zero tolerance.” - President Biden
