U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “ATF will prosecute some individuals for admitting substance abuse and firearm ownership,” attorney Stephen Stamboulieh demonstrated in a “Plaintiff’s Opposition to Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment,” filed Wednesday in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. “For an example, in 2019, it prosecuted a Black man from Hattiesburg, Mississippi.”

Stamboulieh was responding to the Bureau’s January Motion for Summary Judgment in which it asked Judge Rudolph Contreras to order a complaint closed that had arisen from its refusal to confirm or deny the existence of any records related to Hunter Biden’s reported gun purchase. ATF’s rationale was that any public interest is outweighed by Biden’s privacy interests.

The case, as documented in a series of exclusive AmmoLand Shooting Sports News columns, arose from media reports (and text entries reportedly recovered from Biden’s laptop) that his then-love interest, his brother’s widow, Hallie, took his gun and threw it in a supermarket trash receptacle. Biden, widely reported and self-professed to have been an illegal user of controlled substances would have had to answer “No” to the question about use on the ATF Firearms Transfer Form 4473. Because doing so falsely would be a felony, this correspondent filed two Freedom of Information Act requests for responsive records, one with ATF and one with the Secret Service, both reported to have been investigating the incident.

Despite those reports, Secret Service attested it could find no responsive records, signing an affidavit under penalty of perjury. ATF took a different approach, alternatively saying I don’t qualify as a journalist, that they couldn’t find responsive records, and that they made a mistake and shouldn’t have responded because Hunter Biden’s privacy interests take precedence over the public’s need to know.

Not everyone’s privacy is prioritized and not everyone prohibited from firearm possession is given deference and cover.

“The ATF does in fact prosecute some individuals for being unlawful users of controlled substances and having firearms,” the Opposition Memorandum argues, citing the case of the aforementioned Black man, Jakobe McCray Woullard, 19, who “pled guilty … to being an unlawful user of a controlled substance in possession of a firearm.”

Woullard was found to be in possession of “one” round of ammunition, he was charged for that and sentenced to “115 months of confinement on his new offense and 24 months for violating his federal supervised release” for his previous offense of smoking marijuana and being in possession of a firearm.

“The law should be the law for everyone, not just the ones unlucky enough to be not privileged, and Codrea’s FOIA request would shed light on the agency’s actions in a particularly egregious case of willful failure to enforce the laws we’ve all sworn to uphold and they’ve sworn to enforce,” the Opposition Memorandum continues.

There’s plenty more, and the document is embedded below. If the judge listens to ATF and closes the inquiry, more than Hunter Biden’s gun purchase will be covered up – by not allowing the inquiry to go forward, other serious crimes may also never be investigated.

If Secret Service was not officially involved, who were those guys? Was anyone working “off the books” or were the reported agents not who they represented themselves to be?

If Hallie Biden took the gun because Hunter’s behavior alarmed her, isn’t that why the administration is pushing for “red flag laws”?  Also, the case can be made that regardless of motivation, her actions, first “transferring” the gun to herself without permission and then disposing of it where it was reportedly retrieved by someone rummaging through the trash, is either a “theft of firearm” felony and/or a violation of Delaware’s “universal background checks” law.

The Biden administration’s actions are especially curious, having made “gun control” and outrage over racial injustices domestic policy centerpieces. That ATF is trying to squelch an investigation, that all the self-styled “gun safety” organizations are not even mentioning this, that no Congressional Democrats are interested in complaining or in alerting Black Lives Matter, and that no media organizations are scrambling to be the ones to “break” what appears to be a directed cover-up to the general public tells us much.

So will what Barack Obama-nominated Judge Contreras orders.

The law should be equally applied to everyone, including Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton. That it is not is a direct threat to our Republic.

Big George

My Big ‘C’ has come back with a vengeance! I told my oncologist to make me last long ’nuff to see some of my ‘bucket list’!…to land on Mars AND to see either or BOTH of ANY Clinton AND Hunter or his daddy Joey, in handcuffs!! Wish me luck!

Bill

In the United States there are two justices. One for the rich folk like the Bidens, Clintons; another one for us common folk. If you’re not filthy rich, Good Luck!

This is the perfect example of the privileged White Supremacy that Democrats constantly decry. Maybe a privilege due only to the political class. Makes me sick!

hoss

I have to disagree with you. This has nothing to do with white supremacy. It has everything to do with the Biden crime family.
I keep hearing about judging a man on his character, and not the color of his skin. What makes it hard to do is the first thing they bring up is the color of their skin. You have the Black Caucus, the Bowel movement, (BLM), BET award, and others. If they truly want what they say they want, why would they continue to deflect to the color of their skin?

I agree Biden is a career politician bulking the american taxpayer for way too many years. His criminal activities even went as far as the ukraine all of his family profited from the dealings done with people in that country. Now he wants give 10 billion of our tax dollars to the Ukraine leftover covid taxpayer money that the democrats have not used yet. Now this dumie wants to reinstate the Iranian nuclear deal that will set the world back 15 years more with Obama failed policies from a brain dead president who was placed in office.Biden surely did not… Read more »

What do you expect from swamp monsters, that is the only way that the biden can be described as, a swamp monster. You can bet that his doj people will do everything to protect that hunter and go after every one else, that biden is the epitome of being entitled. The biden crime family can do almost anything and nothing will be done to them, yet if TRUMPs son were to do the same thing the doj would be all over him like flies on stink.

If the midterm elections unveil more democratic interference the american people will have to ask hard questions. When the midterm election are over the republican should control the house and the senate. Biden can be impeached and charged with treason if the republicans have leader that will lead into the twenty first century.
Biden can not say afghanistan was not his blunder while the Ukraine is also the Bidens administration’s problem due to foreign policy under Obama as vice president now as President.
Biden is not my president and never will be NO Respect For His office

OK, proof: were it not for double standards the Progressive New Left would have no standards at all. That ethos has now crept in to and dominated thinking in our federal judiciary and has taken over federal law enforcement agencies. Thanks to the incremental march through our institutions the aforementioned institutions are now Rogue Federal Agencies populated mostly by Rogue Federal Agents. So since when is the ‘privacy’ of an adult criminal defendant ever a consideration relative to the public interest when leftists and progressives are blathering about ‘gun violence. incessantly? Here we have a crack head lying on a… Read more »

Anyone who doesn’t prosecute these criminals is just as corrupt’ For the life of me I can’t understand why these POS’s are being protected? They are certainly not contributing to society. These are people w/o any kind of feeling.
Maybe they should wait until Biden is out of office, that way he won’t be able to pardon Hunter,but then there is VP “Giggles.”

We know if that was one of President Trumps children or an associate, the Demon Rats would be howling for blood! Just look what they did to Roger Stone and his disabled wife!
The whole Biden family is filthy and corrupt!

When the government no longer serves the citizens and serves itself it has become irrelevant and a enemy of the people . We are there and ilegitiment clownshow Joe Biden is a imposter and not our legitimate president. Let’s go Brandon #FJB

Biden never was the sharpest knife in the drawer, I wonder if he even passed the Bar exam, or did his father rigg that game too.
The Democrats are not a political party, they are a crime syndicate.

Shame on any gun owner who votes Democrat.

Hunter is the Democrats “GOLDEN BOY” protected by dad and the government. Dems simply cannot do any wrong.

Progressive hypocrisy. Guns for me, but jail for Thee. Mr. Woulard, at 19 years of age, is salvageable, he could turn his life around if given a break. Hunter Biden, however, is in his 50’s and has had a lifetime of law breaking, extra-marital affairs, in-law-incest, cavorting with hookers, drug use, and felony false statement on a 4473. He is not salvageable. He is gone. He has had a life of tragedy and privilege. He was used by his father as a bagman and money launderer. I have a little sympathy, but much contempt for Hunter Biden. The best that… Read more »

With luck Hunter will OD soon!

Wild Bill

Yes, but Hunter could provide a lot of testimony. Maybe Hunter will “accidentally” o. d. because he can provide a lot of testimony.

totbs

That would be easy enough, just float out the rumor that he has very damaging dirt on the Clintons.

Wild Bill

I’m shocked, just shocked to see Clinton threats committing suicide so often. (With apologies to Claude Raines.)

Stag

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Enforcement of laws has always been selective.

gregs

i guess the left does have a two-tiered system of justice, rich privileged white people like hunter “buyden” and “baked” nikki fried our ag commissioner, get a free pass on federal violations and poor black kids like jakobe get several years in federal prison.
they only use the pyramid of intersectionality when it benefits them personally.
no government agent (employee) is your friend or is there to help you, they are there to control you.

swmft

the ones who you know can do things that they wont for others, I got a friend in to the VA (he was eligible, he was on blockade of Cuba) and a new knee in 6 months ,I currently know people on the 3 year list the nepotism in the system is baked in there is no penalty for doing what is legal in your own order , police pull tickets loose papers all the time they call it a perk if the law applies to one it applies to all…. unless it does not through corruption oh getting my… Read more »

I would add to the blatant imbalance pervasive in American justice, the abject failure of New Mexico authorities to bring charges against actor, Alec Baldwin. Does any thinking person believe, if this privileged figure were just an ordinary Joe he wouldn’t have been arrested for manslaughter months ago?

swmft

very true ,and likely the person who handed it to him would be charged with culpable negligence

swmft

and how stupid are they that it could have been done legally, arrest hunter he pleads guilty dad ( i think obummer was president at the time )pardons sealed record, dirty but legal
