Hunter Biden could face fines, jail time for allegedly lying on ATF background check form: Reports

Some say that records held at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) may show that Hunter Biden lied on an application to purchase a firearm at a gun store in 2018 — a felony that carries up to a $250,000 fine and up to 10 years in prison, according to Breitbart

A text message concerning the loss of Biden’s gun led to an investigation by Delaware state troopers and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which indicated that Biden purchased the gun 11 days before his then-lover Hallie Biden allegedly threw it into a trash can outside of a gourmet grocery store in October 2018, the New York Post reported.

The ATF background check form required to buy a gun asks the question:

Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance? Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside.

Hunter Biden was discharged from the U.S. Navy Reserve in 2013 for cocaine use. Additionally, police reportedly found a crack pipe in his abandoned rental car after an accident in 2017, so it is unclear whether he would be able to answer that question with a “no” at the time of his firearm purchase.

Multiple investigations

In addition to the 2018 investigation over the loss of the gun, which was recovered a few days later when a dumpster diver turned it in to local authorities, Hunter Biden is also being investigated over possible tax fraud involving income from foreign sources, the Post notes.

Some of the evidence for those investigations, including the gun and ATF application, has originated from emails and text messages found on a hard drive left at a Delaware computer store, which sparked a massive scandal in the lead-up to the 2020 election.

In this case, the gun store owner seemingly verified that Hunter Biden purchased a firearm in 2018, given the fact that he said he turned Biden’s paperwork in to the ATF for processing, as would have been standard procedure.

Hallie Biden reportedly took the gun away at some point because she was worried he would hurt himself and suggested that his use of drugs and alcohol was still ongoing, according to information gleaned from stored text messages.

“When the police[,] the FBI[,] the secret service came on the scene[,] she said she took it from me because she was scared I would harm myself due to my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid for the kids,” Hunter Biden wrote in one of the messages, according to the New York Post.

Prosecution unlikely

While the penalty for falsifying information on an ATF background form is stiff, the U.S. government rarely enforces the potential penalties, reports note.

Out of 112,090 violations, only 12,710 were investigated and of those, only 12, or 0.1%, were prosecuted, data shows.

Indeed, while Biden could be slapped with a stiff fine and spend a decade in jail over the falsification of information on a federal background check form, it is unlikely that he’ll suffer any consequences whatsoever.

    1. The American People are well aware that Hunter Biden, will never be convicted, because he is the son of Liar, Criminal Corrupt, Anti-America, Racist, brain dead father,

  1. Hunter’s been breaking laws for 15 or 20 years….what’s your hurry he ought to have been in jail for his young girl fetish…n all the money he’s pulling in from China…Ukraine and 3 or 4 others and sharing it with Daddy Joey….who do you think is going to make sure he gets what he deserves…..Joe???? yeah right

    1. Rich people get away with murder just ask the Clintons OJ & August Bush4 to name a few Laws only apply to us mere peons & serfs not wealthy elites especially politicians

  3. Who is protecting Hunter Biden? DOJ, FBI, Puppet Biden??? The average citizen would be sitting in prison, yet the Bidens (Biden’s niece DUI charges evaporated?) are corrupt and the justice system is allowing to CONTINUE! ?
    Not a surprise that Hunter Biden keeps breaking the law as he has protection that he should NOT have!

  4. Wish I had a dad, never knew him, I grew up just fine, my mom worked two jobs, I worked one and went to school. We made it ok, sometimes it was hard but you give it all you have.

  5. Hes guilty as hell of breaking many laws and so is his senile corrupt old man. But mark my words if we have to depend on the FBI or DOJ to indict him it will never happen. The fix is in.

  6. The Biden family is apparently what the Democrats in this country want to be in charge. Is it any wonder that we are in the mess we are in?

  7. Oh get off of it. Arrest someone who has killed someone like poor George Floyd. No matter what he did he did not need to die.

    Learn by what you see and know. We saw the cop keep his knee on George even after the paramedic got there.

    1. So because a black man died because of bad decisions by police officers, Hunter Biden should not be prosecuted for the local and federal crimes he has committed?
      Where’s your justification for THAT???
      GIVE MA A BREAK!

    2. Shirley are you saying what Hunter did was not a crime and it is ok? If you, a black man or I did the same crime we would end up going to jail. Oh get off of it! It is not OK

  8. A threat to that worthless kid of Bidens, i’ll beleive when i see it in writeing that he was arested and charged otherwize don’t waste my time saying anything about it.

  9. I WILL BELIEVE IT WHEN I SEE HIM IN PRISON.! “BIG DADDY” WILL NOT ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN,AND NEITHER WILL T5HE CLAN. NO JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD FOR DECENT PEOPLE,ONLY THE RICH AND CROOKED!

  10. Hunter Biden is not above the laws of this country. Hunter should be put in jail for 10 years or more.

  11. The only law that will punish Hunter will be vigilantly law because our president will not let our laws punish his son or him self as far as that go’s . It really makes me sick to see what Biden is trying to do to the American people weather they like it or not. Every day he rams something new down our throats and expects we the People to like it. They are going to push and push the people until some crazy Patriot loses control and takes them all out at one time. For their sake they should stop pissing the People off.

  12. Gun control is going to be the death of the Democratic party because I can’t believe that 234 million Americans are not going to let this brain damaged Biden or his unqualified vice president dictate to we the American people as to how we should protect our selves from all the hoodlums that the Democrat have created to disrupt our whole country so they could steal the election from Trump. I see a lot of blood shed in the future and the corrupt Democrats are going to lose .

  13. Don’t hold your breath while you’re waiting for Hunter Biden to get what he deserves. With Daddy in the White House, no way. Doesn’t make it right but that’s how it’ll be. But the truth of the matter is, BOTH of them should be
    locked up and the key throwed away.

  14. Hunter should have the entire BLM protesting that he is NOT going to Jail. If they did half of what Hunter BIden has done they would have long sentences to prison.

  15. What about the Corrupt Cabal that is Protecting Joe Biden? Joe sold out American Interests to Communist China for 8 years under Obama yet he’s sitting in our Oval Office! Joe needs to be stopped before he destroys this country as he takes orders from Xi Jinping.

  16. Beijing Biden is the most corrupt person to ever be put in the White House (not elected but cheated his way in). The Dems and the media and the SCOTUS covered up for this dementiated clown and his drug addicted, pedophile son. Both are disgraced to the US they reside in.
