Default Verdict Watch: Hunter Biden's gun jury deliberation livestream

https://www.foxnews.com/video/6354800438112

This is the one case that is stand alone, that does not implicate James, Joe and the rest of the Brandon family, and it's the one case he should be found not guilty on. Both the left and the right should want that.

The left wants an acquittal because they don't want the embarrassment of a conviction. The right should want an acquittal, because the 2nd Amendment demands it. Shall not be infringed is clear, and there's no exception for, "well, except if you're on drugs."

Swearing to things on a federal form to ask for permission.....unconstitutional.
Having drugs + gun /= gun is now illegal. Call the drugs illegal, sure, but that shouldn't make the gun a crime, too.

Yeah, well, the constitution doesn’t say anything about “unless you’re a paranoid delusional schizophrenic “ either, but I don’t think there’s anybody that wants someone like that to be able to own a gun.

Fair point, but if someone is too dangerous to possess a firearm, they're probably too dangerous to be out on the street. We do have mental hospitals to house those dangerous people.

And ultimately we're left with this:

Quote:
"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

~Ben Franklin
When you start going down the path of disarmament, it's not just a slippery slope, it's a giant cliff.

If we gleefully celebrate Hunter's conviction here, we shouldn't feel bad when the left finds ways to seize the guns of conservatives. Hunter may have been a drug addicted loser, but he had that gun, and, as far as we know, didn't commit even one crime with that gun. No bank robbed, no liquor store knocked over, no one shot in a road rage incident, nothing.

Biden's defense wouldn't use a Pro-2A defense because they will then have the President's son arguing that the liberals' wet dream of more gun control (or any) is unConstitutional. Joe's handlers wouldn't let that happen (and he'd know nothing about it anyway).

According to his own photos on his laptop, he had at least two guns. I think they missed some charges.

Hunter can eat a bag of dicks. Not in jail obviously......he won't be going there.

Now that the laptop was entered as evidence, there should be more indictments coming.

I would also expect an investigation into the 51 former intel agents who clearly interfered with a federal election.
