Earlier this year, Hunter Biden was indicted on three firearms-related felony charges, but he pleaded not guilty to all of them.
According to the Washington Examiner, the president's son and his lawyers have vowed to take the matters to the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary.
Hilariously, they've insisted that the Second Amendment is on their side -- specifically a Supreme Court case known as New York Rifle & Pistol Assn. v. Bruen, which his lawyers claim is sufficient precedent to protect their client from prosecution.
President Joe Biden strongly condemned the 2022 SCOTUS ruling that could eventually set his son free of federal firearms charges -- an ironic fact not lost on many.

Hunter Biden's attorney, Abbe Lowell, released a statement in September making it crystal clear that the defense team will use the precedent to protect their client.
"I want to make sure that everybody understands that after five years of an investigation, that the prosecutors knew all the facts, and the only change that has occurred between when they investigated and today is that the law changed," Lowell said at the time.
"But the law didn’t change in favor of a prosecution. The law changed against it because a couple of federal courts have found this gun charge to be unconstitutional."
Some believe that Hunter Biden's case could have massive ramifications for the SCOTUS ruling, including constitutional law experet Jonathan Turley.
"It's always possible Hunter Biden could be the namesake of a future Second Amendment challenge at the high court, though it is more likely that he could reap the benefit of a favorable ruling over existing legal challenges that are further down the line for the Supreme Court's possible examination," Turley told the Examiner.

Turley added, "A challenge to Section 922 would be predictable in most criminal cases," Turley said. "This, however, would result in a curious challenge by Hunter of a law that has long been defended by his father. It could come to that, though cases like Daniels may do the heavy lifting in challenging the law."
Irony aside, others have insisted that Biden's gun charges simply serve to distract from the long list of other alleged -- and more serious -- crimes he's committed.
Only time will tell if Hunter Biden and his lawyers double down on the protections afforded by the Second Amendment. If that happens, it'll be fascinating to watch the White House squirm trying to spin it.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
