Conservative radio and TV host Dana Loesch tweeted out a spot-on question concerning President Biden’s looming gun control executive orders. It appropriately linked the issue to Hunter Biden’s handgun incident in 2018.
Loesch tweeted: “Does it include bringing charges against members of his family for stealing a handgun and falsifying a 4473?” The question was in response to Biden’s pending announcement on Thursday of expected gun control executive orders dealing with ghost guns and red flag laws.
A police report indicated that in 2018, Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law, Hallie Biden, took a gun that Hunter Biden had purchased and tossed it into a garbage dumpster behind a grocery store. She went back later to get the gun but it was gone. It would eventually be returned by a man who had been rummaging in the bin for recyclables.
The Secret Service allegedly went to the gun store where the weapon was purchased and demanded the paperwork connected to it. The agency denies going to the store. The store owner claimed he originally refused to turn over the paperwork fearing that somehow they would cover up Hunter Biden buying the gun if it was used in connection to a crime. Later, the owner did turn the paperwork over to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

As President Biden unveils his expected gun control measures, it is almost a certainty that they will be challenged over their constitutionality by Second Amendment advocates.
“The president will not wait for Congress to act before the administration takes our own steps — solely within the administration’s authority and the Second Amendment — to save lives,” a senior administration official stated in remarks to reporters on Wednesday.

Biden is expected to task the Department of Justice to begin within 30 days the process of mandating that those who purchase so-called ghost guns undergo background checks. Those guns are reportedly homemade or are cobbled together and do not have serial numbers. Within 60 days, Biden wants concealed assault-style firearms to be regulated. Details are still vague on exactly what the regulations will be or exactly what is meant by “concealed assault-style firearms.”
More than 100 Democrats pressured Biden last week to take action against concealed assault-style firearms in the wake of the Atlanta and Boulder shootings.
The DOJ will also reportedly be required within 60 days to provide states with proposed red flag legislation. The bills would allow courts to order the temporary removal of firearms from an individual who is deemed a danger to themselves or others. Biden will also order five federal agencies to dole out money to assist in preventing community violence. Also referenced is the Department of Health and Human Services which will instruct states on the use of Medicaid funds to be used in the prevention of gun violence.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation declared that it will “carefully review” Biden’s actions. “Where those orders exceed his lawful authority and usurp the power of Congress to make law, NSSF will take all appropriate steps to protect the interests of our industry and the Second Amendment rights of our customers,” they stated.
A senior administration official remarked that Biden’s gun control measures were the first step in a series of proposals that will “address mass shootings, community violence that disproportionately affects black and brown Americans, domestic violence and suicide by firearms.”
“This is an initial set of actions to make progress on President Biden’s gun violence reduction agenda,” he commented.
Notably, $5 billion of Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan is earmarked over the next eight years for community violence prevention programs.
“With this investment of our federal tax dollars, we have an unprecedented opportunity to build an infrastructure of peace to heal and disrupt cycles of violence,” proclaimed Fund Peace who advocated for the funding.
Loesche’s jab at Biden’s gun control and Hunter Biden’s handgun fiasco got a thumbs up on Twitter:
I think @DLoesch wins with this one.

No, because he believes the Second Amendment protects Hunters.
