As the jury begins deliberations in Hunter Biden’s federal gun charges trial, many Americans are left wondering if justice will truly be served. The son of President Joe Biden stands accused of three felony charges related to his 2018 purchase and possession of a firearm while being an active drug user.

Hunter Biden’s trial, which commenced on June 3, 2024, in Wilmington, Delaware, has become a focal point for those who believe the justice system favors the elite. Biden is charged with lying on a federal form about his drug use when purchasing a firearm and unlawfully possessing the gun during his addiction to crack cocaine. The charges could carry up to 25 years in prison if he is convicted. In a post to X, crowds outside the courthouse welcomed Hunter with chants of “F*ck Joe Biden”:

The prosecution has built a strong case, leveraging evidence from Biden’s own memoir, Beautiful Things, which chronicles his severe drug addiction during the time he acquired the gun. Testimonies from family members and associates, including his ex-wife and Hallie Biden, have supported the claims of his drug use and erratic behavior.

However, many conservatives fear that despite the evidence, Hunter Biden will receive preferential treatment due to his father’s position. President Joe Biden has publicly stated he will not pardon his son if convicted, but skepticism remains high among those who feel the justice system is rigged in favor of the powerful.

The defense has tried to mitigate the damage, questioning the credibility and context of the evidence presented. As the jury deliberates, the nation watches closely, aware that the outcome could have significant personal and political ramifications for the Biden family.

Adding to the complexity, Hunter Biden faces separate tax evasion charges, possibly leading to an additional 17 years in prison if convicted. The combined weight of these legal battles underscores the widespread belief that the justice system operates on a two-tiered level, favoring the well-connected over ordinary citizens.

For many Americans, the verdict in this trial will be a litmus test for the justice system’s integrity. If Hunter Biden walks away with minimal consequences, it will reinforce the perception of a biased legal framework that shields the elite from true accountability.
