Hunter Biden appears to have committed gun offenses for which multiple people have received lengthy prison terms.
According to the Legal Information Institute, there is evidence that Biden may have broken two laws under 18 U.S. Code 922, which forbids someone from making a “false or fictitious oral or written statement” or allowing a “illegal user of or addicted to any controlled substance” to retrieve a firearm.
According to a 2021 Politico article, Biden answered “no” to the inquiry “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” on the transaction record in 2018. Additionally, Delaware police discovered a gun that President Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law, Hallie, had put in the trash.
Biden’s expulsion from the Navy Reserve in February 2014 was the consequence of a cocaine test result he had five years earlier, according to an earlier story by Politico.
According to the Politico report, Secret Service investigators went inside the gun shop where the rifle had been acquired and asked Ron Palmieri, the owner, for the gun’s paperwork. However, Palmieri refused to provide it to them because he believed there was a cover-up. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives received the records that Palmieri had eventually turned up.
According to Biden’s memoir, he was “smoking crack every 15 minutes” when he made the gun purchase, according to the National Review. There are pictures of Biden clutching a gun and drug paraphernalia while completely naked.
The president’s son has not been charged despite other people having been found guilty of the same illegal act as Biden.
Paul Lachapelle, age 26, was charged with having a handgun while in possession of an illegal controlled narcotic in federal court on May 13, 2022, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ). Police discovered that the suspect, who was addicted to a controlled narcotic, allegedly discarded a.22 caliber revolver in a grassy area. He might spend as much as 10 years behind bars.
