New audio and photos have been leaked of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. This time, the video and screenshots appear to show Hunter wielding an illegally purchased weapon back in 2018. The timing of this discovery couldn’t be worse as the President is focusing energy on attempting to pass new gun control legislation. There have been quite a few highly-publicized mass shootings that the media have reported on from Uvalde, Texas to Buffalo, New York. Uvalde native Matthew McConaughey recently spoke at the White House about this very issue.
The issue with Hunter Biden is not that he brandished a weapon in the newly leaked video. The issue is that he purchased it at a gun store and apparently lied on a background check. There is a section of a background check that asks about any addiction to drugs or alcohol. Hunter was famously discharged from the military after testing positive for cocaine. The now-infamous laptop features him physically smoking crack. And Hunter has actually admitted to struggling with drugs himself. Drugs and Hunter are linked. This is not simply a rumor. So in order for him to pass a background check and purchase a gun legally from a store, he would have to lie about the drugs and alcohol question.
