New SCOTUS Ruling Is A Major Loss For Hunter Biden, Legal Analyst Explains


Legal analyst Jonathan Turley noted that a recent Second Amendment ruling from the Supreme Court represents a loss for Hunter Biden, who was recently convicted of lying about his drug use while filling out a federal form for a gun purchase.

The court ruled 8-1 Friday to uphold a federal law that prohibits individuals convicted of domestic violence from owning firearms.

Turley explained that the decision will put an end to Hunter Biden’s attempt to appeal his conviction on three firearms charges, as his legal team planned to argue that laws barring drug users from owning firearms violate the Second Amendment.

Hunter Biden may have lost the greatest Hail Mary pass in history in Rahimi,” Turley wrote in an X post on Saturday. “When Staubach threw his famous pass to win the game, he ‘closed [his] eyes and said a Hail Mary.’ Roughly 50 years later Hunter missed his pass in equally spectacular fashion…”

“The Court rendered a reasonable, balanced accommodation for public safety under the Second Amendment. It is not clear who is more disappointed: Hunter or the Court critics,” the legal analyst added.

The president’s son was initially slated to receive a generous plea deal that would wipe out the federal gun charges in favor of a diversion program, though the deal was rejected by Judge Noreika at the last minute.

He was later slapped with three federal gun charges by Special Counsel David Weiss, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland after overseeing the Hunter Biden investigation as a U.S. attorney in Delaware.

The first son is also facing a number of misdemeanor and felony tax-related charges in California federal court. He has pleaded not guilty in that case, which is expected to go to trial later this year.
