Secret Service Says ‘No Record Found’ in Hunter Biden Gun Investigation

Joe Biden and crackhead son Hunter Biden
Has Hunter Biden broken the law by lying on the Firearms Transaction Record? Has the Secret Service by denying involvement in the investigation in a FOIA response?

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Sources: Secret Service inserted itself into case of Hunter Biden’s gun,” Politico declared in an “exclusive” report Thursday. “Secret Service agents approached the owner of the store where Hunter bought the gun and asked to take the paperwork involving the sale, according to two people, one of whom has firsthand knowledge of the episode and the other was briefed by a Secret Service agent after the fact.”

As initially reported in The Blaze last October, Halle Biden, the widow of Beau, became involved in an affair with Hunter and threw his gun in a supermarket trash receptacle. ATF and Secret Service both investigated according to the report, which was outside the latter’s mission because Biden was not under Secret Service protection at the time.

“The Secret Service says it has no record of its agents investigating the incident,” the Politico report notes.

The main controversy involves Biden answering “No” on the ATF Form 4473 Firearms Transfer Record in response to the question about unlawful use of controlled substances. That conflicts with numerous reports about his alleged drug use around the time he bought the gun, and lying on the form is a federal felony.

As a Google search shows, the story has exploded all over the news, with major players picking it up and propagating it. What none of those reports show is that the lying on the 4473 observation was first noted on AmmoLand Shooting Sports News in a November 1, 2020 report:

Evidence Suggests Hunter Biden Committed Federal Felony when He Purchased Gun

Considering the Biden administration is all about “gun control,” the hypocrisy of deliberately violating the law must not be ignored. Nor should any official cover-ups.

ATF and Secret Service involvement was further addressed in a November 24, 2020 follow-up report:

FOIA Request Asks ATF and Secret Service About Hunter Biden Gun Investigation

I discussed these efforts with Armed American Radio host Mark Walters on his November 24, 2020 “AAR Daily Defense” program (segment begins at 28:17).

The FOIA resulted in a January 27 final response from the Department of Homeland Security claiming:

“In response to your FOIA request, the Secret Service FOIA Office has conducted a reasonable search for all potentially responsive documents. The Secret Service FOIA Office searched all Program Offices that were likely to contain potentially responsive records, and no records were located.”

I did not publicize the response at the time because we were (and still are) awaiting a response from ATF, which is delinquent in its legal obligation. Because FOIA replies are legal documents and because intentionally withholding information has legal ramifications, I made several attempts to communicate with the reporter and editors at The Blaze to see if I could reconcile the differences between their report and the FOIA response, but none of them responded.

I am going through what our options are with my attorney, Stephen Stamboulieh, to determine what our next steps should be.

Yeah, I read the constitution recently and remember clearly the provision in the 2nd amendment for the government to make you fill out forms. It’s right after shall not be infringed where it says AS LONG AS YOU FILL OUT A 4473 form like a good six year old! And don’t make any mistakes because that is a FELONY. And to think that the Founding Fathers considered something HEINOUS to be a felony. I don’t particularly like Hunter Biden or his screwball communist controlled father, but WHERE IS THE VICTIM? Geezzzz….

The victim is justice. When there are thousands of gun laws eagerly enforced by hundreds of thousands of LEOs against tax payers and not one LEO will stand up and enforce the same laws against the privileged child of the President, we have a problem.

“For my friends, anything is possible. For my enemies – it’s the law.”

That totalitarian tactic cannot be used unless there are lots and lots of laws and lots and lots of LEOs who will follow any order to enforce them (and follow any order to not enforce them).

I agree that his use of any substance is his business. As an adult he should be able to do whatever he wants to or with his own body. Unfortunately, the laws you or I would be required to follow don’t really matter to the wealthy or politically connected. I see this issue and these articles not so much as calling on someone to be punished for a victimless crime but calling attention to the fact that laws, in general, are selectively enforced especially when it comes to those with connections and pointing out the hypocrisy of politicians calling for… Read more »

The government run around agency shuffle. One agency answers for another then points to a third. You will get NO information from these folks and no one will be held accountable. Obama and Hillary got away with it, so now everyone else feels empowered to do the same. That is the downfall of Trump’s decision not to prosecute the cabal when he had a chance. All the other what if’s, and maybe’s are moot. The paperwork is now gone into space, the people involved will be covered by other records to have not been involved and the agencies will will… Read more »

So the Secret Service and ATF have aided and abetted in a Felony Criminal Act, and committed a Felony themselves in the destruction of evidence.

Does it surprise you that nothing was found? Hasn’t everything about Biden, both Hunter and Joe died down? Doesn’t everything about Hillary, Biden, Pelosi, etc. die down.

The Story may be of interest, yet I have better things 2 do, such as watching The Grass Grow, or better yet Go Out Shooting! Being an elder I have seen a lot of stuff and I know BS when I c it. This Author picked out a pic of a dying man who is someone’s Son, and I wonder if the messenger has a family, a son or daughter, a mom or dad (that he even cares about). I know Sick when I c it, and I learned many many Moons ago that so-called writers will write anything to… Read more »

The author picked out a picture of a horribly corrupt person who has enjoyed the protection of his political father his entire life. As a result:

  • LE has never charged him with any of the multiple felonies he has committed; and
  • He has obtained millions of dollars for pedaling political influence.

And you accuse the author of doing anything for buck. You continually reference your age as if the passage of time has somehow bestowed wisdom upon you. It hasn’t.

Apparently gooder12 has confused the picture of Hunter Biden passed out, sucking on a crack pipe with Beau Biden. Us old people can jump to conclusions if we don’t understand the content.
Now with that said, gooder12 owes the author an apology. We’ll see if he can admit his mistake.

I admit I usually don’t read most of the stories, and you say I messed up and it sure looks like I did. Now I still wonder why that pic, but the author must have a reason to use it.

Gooder12, glad that you came forward on this. It appears that other people only skim the articles & their comments. The author is using the photo to drive home the point that Hunter B lied when he filled out the form 4473 to buy the revolver. Specifically line 11e. The form asks “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” If you answer “Yes”, the dealer cannot sell you the firearm. Of course this assumes that he bought it from a dealer.

Don’t we have anything better to do than dredge up this kind of old, and irrelevant stuff. Let’s focus on making sure every gun owner in the country votes in the upcoming elections. If every gun owner in the country voted single issue “pro-gun” the problem would simply go away. Scum politicians will always vote in their own best interest and if they see they will not get elected on an anti-gun platform they will either vote pro-gun, or simply shut up. There are enough gun owning families in the US to swing any election, anyplace, including national levels. Forget… Read more »

Don’t you think that exposing hypocrisy and illegal acts by the administration – just might sway some voters come election time? Am I the only one seeing parallels between this cover up and the one involving watergate?
As in that case, I suspect the administration could overcome the difficulty by throwing guilty parties to the wolves. I don’t think president Harris would have problem tossing hunter under the bus – but suspect biden would be lose him “front man” role.

I guess you feel the last election was fair. Enough gun owners voted to get President Trump elected, they did, he won and the presidency was stolen. It is going to take a hell of a lot more than our vote to solve this problem. President Trump is one of the best presidents we ever had and the proof is in how well our country was doing and that we were coming back from the dregs of a demoncrap/muslim presidency. It’s been 2 months now and look how F-upd everything already is and he has promised to make it worse.… Read more »

The law only applies to the common man . Hunter and Joe and the Democrats are all above the law. The FBI is corrupt and selectively enforce laws . This is the America we live in now . Innocent till proven guilty only applies to the elites now . Corruption has overtaken our government and a correction is due . The tree of Liberty needs watered ASAP.

It’s like the old tale about grizzly bear attack. One does not have to out run the grizzly. One merely shoots girlfriend in knee with .22LR pistol and out runs her. Xiden Mafia, as the Clinton Mafia, are experts at having someone else “shot in the knee”…..or even the head several times in suicide…….poor, poor Vince Foster really had to work at it……..to distract the grizzly. Please, move along. Nothing here to see.
