Fox News panel “Outnumbered” weighs in on President Biden saying gun shops should not be granted immunity

President Joe Biden on Thursday announced unilateral gun control measures in the rose garden as part of his pledge to quell gun violence like the recent attacks in Boulder and Atlanta

The measures are unlikely to have a significant impact on such massacres, which is a long-standing problem with politicians’ claims they will pass substantial gun checks to stem this violence

What is remarkable though, is the inclusion of a provision that relates directly to the allegations made against Hunter Biden – allegations of a possible federal crime that have been largely obscured in media coverage and interviews. recent

The point is that the range of possible reforms is very limited and is unlikely to produce transformational change on gun violence This is not to say that regulating “ghost guns” (homemade weapons without a serial number) is not a good idea. However, such regulation would not have changed past mass shootings

Often times those involved in such killings acquire their guns legally, so changing the status of stabilizer braces (allowing a pistol to fire like a rifle) will not impact many such cases. A stabilizer brace was used in Boulder, but the absence of such a brace probably wouldn’t have made a major difference in such a close shot

However, it is the “red flag” provision that emerges from this list Biden grants the Justice Department 60 days to develop a model “red flag” law that would allow friends and members family to identify an individual as a potential danger, thereby temporarily preventing the person from accessing a firearm

It could well be called the Hunter Biden Law As previously reported, Hunter Biden acquired a handgun despite his long-standing drug and alcohol abuse as well as a history of depression

In 2018, the gun was dumped in a garbage can in Wilmington by Hallie Biden, widow of Hunter’s late brother After the death of her brother Beau, Hunter began sex with Hallie and she apparently became concerned what he could do with the gun This is precisely the concern of the Red Flag law

In many ways, her action reflected the need for such laws In desperation, she threw the gun but chose a trash can not far from a school

To retrieve the gun, Biden replied “no” on the firearms transaction record which asked if he was “an illegal user or addicted to” a narcotic or other controlled substance Lying on this federal form can lead to prosecution under several provisions The United States Code makes it an offense punishable by 10 years to “make a false or fictitious oral or written statement” to obtain firearms

While prosecutions are rare, this should be a major topic or warrant media scrutiny.After all, the president’s son may have committed a federal crime and his father has called for greater extension and enforcement on firearms licensesNow, the issue of unstable gun owners is one of the main areas of President Biden’s new reforms

The question is not whether this proposal would change the behavior of gun owners, but whether it will change the focus of the media

After imposing a virtual blackout on the history of the Hunter Biden cell phone ahead of the election, the media published fake accounts or barely addressed the controversy in a wide range of interviews on Hunter Biden’s new book “Beautiful Things” Regarding the alleged gun violation, the media avoided any direct questioning of the denial of drug addiction which, according to the interview and Biden’s account, continued until the presidential campaign of 2020 from his father

It’s an all too familiar role model Hunter admitted he was a crack addict even at a time when he was receiving massive payments from foreign companies due to his unexplained “expertise” on energy and others. Questions Whether it was gun crime or influence peddling, the blackout turned into a media that fades with the book

Biden is asked superficial questions that resulted in largely identical answers about his lack of memory due to his long addiction. He just doesn’t remember the laptop, its contents or even the father of a child with a woman

It doesn’t matter if he remembers the details of his first drink at age 8 Journalists briefly raise these questions, then quickly move on to other questions

The approved new story was described breathlessly by CNN host Brian Stelter, who described it as an “extraordinary” account of a “real human being” Stelter said the description of the book of “How Many Times Hunter Biden Could Have Died, President’s Son, Is Breathtaking”

This isn’t the book of a deadpan father, influence peddler, or privileged political elite Biden is more of a hero for our time – a modern Odysseus who overcame all dangers

Biden’s life is certainly a tragedy Most of us feel great sympathy for the loss of his mother and sister as well as his brother

His addiction is hardly surprising given the painful chapters of his life.If this book and these interviews were completely honest and open-ended, the book would be as mind-boggling as Stelter claims.

However, at every critical moment that Hunter could be held responsible for criminal or unethical acts, he retreats into the dark recesses of his memory.

For example, he claims to have no recollection of fathering a child with former George Washington University student Lunden Alexis Roberts, 29 However, she is not asked how to fight Roberts as she sought parental support after being recognized as the father after a DNA test

The court ultimately ordered these payments as “long past due” and Roberts’ court records described Biden as having “no involvement in the child’s life since the birth of the child, has never interacted with the child, has never been a parent of the child “and” may not identify the child in a series of photos “

None of these ‘red flags’ to the media have sparked the slightest interest in interviews with Biden Now President Biden is pushing for legislation to specifically address the danger Hunter Biden presented in 2018

The Red Flag Law will be the next test for the media and whether they will confront or continue to escape the unauthorized Hunter Biden story
