    Oh, please. The MAGA cult conquered doublethink years ago. They have no difficulty concluding Hunter Biden is the only person who deserves to have his gun rights revoked.

      This. Here’s what gun rights groups have said about Hunter Bidens conviction:

      “Gun Owners of America believes the underlying law is unconstitutionally broad, but so long as it remains on the books, Hunter deserved no special treatment or mercy,” Pratt told Fox News Digital.

      “While some might question the validity of the gun law used to prosecute Biden, given the current administration’s disdain for the Second Amendment and their efforts to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, I suspect most gun owners won’t lose any sleep over this particular conviction.” [Mike McCoy, a Second Amendment attorney for the Mountain States Legal Foundation]

      Only one gun rights group has actually said they don’t care who anti-gun laws are used against, they don’t support those laws.

      “Countless lives are destroyed every year under the federal government’s unconstitutional and immoral regulations. We proudly work to eliminate these laws and create a free world. Just as we have in many other cases, we stand ready to assist Mr. Biden in his challenge of federal gun laws,” said FPC [Firearms Policy Coalition] President Brandon Combs.

      Yeah. They won’t do it but they’ll still complain about a conspiracy to try to get them to do it.

      Never forget that it was the Republicans who first passed restrictive gun laws in California

      It’s only because he’s not a republikkklown. If he was, with his dad saying he’s not getting a pardon, the right would all about it being an injustice and look at his terrible dad just letting it happen.

    I am 100% certain that my MAGA dad, who showed me how he builds ghost guns, is very vocally in support of Hunter being convicted when he is with his work buddies, but if he talked with me about it, would not be.

    If I managed to pin him in the discussion, he’d laugh and say something like well he shouldn’t have gotten caught and then change topic.

    I haven’t spoken to him in years, because he’s an unlikeable abusive narcissistic hypocrite who is incapable of being wrong… but the brainrot only ever gets worse once you go down the Q pipeline.
