( – Hunter Biden’s legal team had previously requested for the court to dismiss the gun charges against him, however, a federal appeals court denied the appeal. 

The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit argued that the Second Amendment defense of the defendants was not implicating a right not to be tried. It further noted that this hypothetical defense could also be reviewed after the final judgment was given. 

The document continues by pointing out that the interlocutory appeal of the defendant was going to be dismissed because there was no appellate jurisdiction in this case. 

Biden is facing charges of having made false statements on a federal form in order to buy a gun in 2018. The charges against him also include one count of possession of a firearm by a person who is addicted to a controlled substance. 

Hunter Biden has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges. The jury selection in this hearing is set to start on June 3. 

Previously Fox News had reported that prosecutors would also be using evidence from Biden’s laptop and book in order to convince the jury of their argument about the first son buying a revolver in 2018 when he had actively been using narcotics. 

Judge Maryellen Noreika has stated that for Hunter Biden to be charged Special Counsel David Weiss would need to prove that Hunter Biden was suffering from a drug addiction at the time of the firearm purchase. That does not necessarily mean that he will need to prove that Biden was using drugs every day.
