Celebrating the Hunter Biden Gun Conviction Legitimizes an Illegitimate System


by Philip Giraldi, The Unz Review:

Sometimes, when I think something is really stupid, I just write a joke article, basically assuming the reader is inside my head and understands why I think the thing is stupid. I did that yesterday with the Hunter Biden gun crime conviction.

Probably, my thoughts on this should be elaborated, and I should explain why I think this is so retarded, and why I am so disgusted by Republicans celebrating it as some kind of victory.

Firstly, I want to say that not everyone is celebrating this. There is a lot of gibberish on Fox News and the standard “Jewish conservative” websites like Breitbart.

I was happy I didn’t see a lot of celebration on Twitter.

Congressman Matt Gaetz (one of only two good Congressmen) did the same thing I did, and just called it dumb.

Vivek also had a more in-depth take, that I basically agree with.

The first major reason that no right-winger should be celebrating this is that what he was convicted on are blatantly fake laws, obviously totally unconstitutional. He filled out a form saying he was not a drug addict when buying a gun. Making you fill out a form is what we call an “infringement” on a right that shall not be infringed.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF)’s Form 4473 is the bane of all Second Amendment activists, as it is the foothold of the gun control movement, giving the government the ability to regulate the ownership of guns. It also allows the government to track all gun owners.

According to the Bill of Rights, and the obvious intentions of the Founding Fathers, anyone should be able to buy any weapon they want without showing ID, and the government should not be allowed to tell any person they are restricted from owning guns for any reason.
