Hunter Biden to Face Trial as Judge Denies Dismissal of Gun Charges

A federal judge denied Hunter Biden’s request to dismiss felony gun charges against him, meaning he will now face a trial in June. The charges stem from an incident in 2018, when Hunter Biden allegedly lied on a federal background check form about his drug use while purchasing a handgun. His lawyers argued that the charges violated his Second Amendment rights but the judge disagreed.

The judge stated that the Second Amendment does not provide unlimited rights and allows for various firearm regulations, including prohibiting the possession of firearms by those who are unlawful users of controlled substances. The judge also pointed out that Hunter Biden is charged with possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and two false-statement counts.

The trial for President Joe Biden’s son will take place in Delaware, and it is scheduled to begin on June 3.
