Slap on Wrist: Hunter Biden Indicted on 3 Minor Firearm Charges, No Tax or FARA Violations

Hunter Biden was finally charged Thursday – but not for anything serious. What eventually came down amounted to a mere slap on the wrist amid a plethora of illicit dealings and foreign influence peddling.

The three felonies related to lying on a 2018 application to buy a gun, and relies largely on the fact that he lied that he was not using illegal drugs when he applied to purchase the gun in question.

Funny, this was the only charge not linked to his father and President Joe Biden. Incredible…

Breitbart reports...

Special Counsel David Weiss on Thursday indicted Hunter Biden on three criminal charges related to his possession of a firearm.

Hunter Biden was charged with one count of false statement in the purchase of a firearm, one count of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and one count of false statement related to information required to be kept by federal firearms licensed dealer.

Hunter could potentially face prison time.

Weiss’s indictment did not include any Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) or tax violations.

Weiss charged Hunter Biden in the U.S. District Court in Delaware after his deal with the president’s son collapsed upon judicial scrutiny.

After the deal collapsed, Weiss announced plans on September 6 to indict Hunter Biden before the end of the month.

Hunter Biden’s previous plea deal included tax violations but not FARA violations. Weiss told the judge about his investigation into Hunter Biden, including an ongoing probe into potential FARA violations, causing the judge to question the agreement that was ultimately nixed.

Thursday’s charges are unlikely to be the last, ABC News reported.

Here’s a breakdown of the charges:


ABC News reported that Hunter was charged with one count of false statement in the purchase of a firearm, one count of false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer, and one count of possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.

The first of the three charges — the one centered on giving a false statement — relates to Hunter allegedly lying on a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) background check form.

On March 27, 2021, Breitbart News reported Hunter Biden may have given false information on an ATF background check form to purchase a gun in 2018. It is notable that the punishment for providing false answers on that form includes fines up to $250,000 and/or ten years of imprisonment.

ATF Form 4473 is the background check each would-be gun buyer fills out upon trying to buy a gun at retail. A Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder then calls the FBI and relays the information from the form, receiving the all-clear to sell the gun or a rejection, which means the gun cannot be sold to the would-be buyer.

A third option is that the FBI can alert the FFL holder that it will extend the background check another three business days to give FBI reviewers additional time to check criminal records…
