Even after Biden showcased his dementia at the farcical press conference yesterday, one person is still glad he is president — namely, his son Hunter, who might otherwise be in prison.
In October 2018, Hunter Biden was indulging in an unseemly relationship with his brother’s widow Hallie. She took a .38 revolver from his truck and threw it in the trash behind a Wilmington grocery store. Police investigated, since this was across from a school, and the gun might be misused.
Then the Deep State got involved.
Secret Service agents approached the owner of the store where Hunter bought the gun and asked to take the paperwork involving the sale…
The gun store owner refused to supply the paperwork, suspecting that the Secret Service officers wanted to hide Hunter’s ownership of the missing gun in case it were to be involved in a crime…
The owner then appropriately turned over the paperwork to the ATF.
The Bidens were not under Secret Service protection at the time. At least, not formally.
A guy who had been scavenging for recyclables later turned in the gun. There were no charges.
A so-called “gun buyback” event in Pensacola, Florida did not go according to plan over the weekend, as a local gun club showed up to counteroffer the city by paying actual market value for citizens’ firearms. The only weapons the buyback was able to acquire included BB guns and homemade “Boom Stick 1776” pipe guns, which forced the event to run out of cash in under 30 minutes.
Members of the local Second Admendment advocacy group Escambia Carry showed up to the event with a sign that read “Don’t Get Ripped Off By The City With This Stupid Gun “Buyback’ Program – See Me To Get Fair Market Value For Your Firearm.”
“Other than these rifles, the vast majority were junk,” Escambia Carry’s Jeremy Bosso said in a Facebook post. “Numerous people told us they sold their old junk guns to buy new firearms. Someone sold a Marine Emergency Flare gun. Other attendees had air pistols (BB/pellet guns). The City ran out of money by 9:27am – less than 30 minutes into the event.”
Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas), is proposing legislation which would create an Orwellian database of gun owners.
Jackson-Lee filed H.R. 127 as a placeholder bill earlier this year, but the text was updated on Jan. 28. Once again restorting to one of the favored tactics of the left — “waving the bloody shirt — “The Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act,” is named after an exchange student murdered in a mass shooting in Texas, and would require the registration of all firearms in the United States.
