How the Supreme Court could help Hunter Biden appeal his conviction

Historic Conviction:

Hunter Biden has been convicted of three felony gun charges, marking the first time in American history that a president's child has been convicted of a crime during their father's term in office.

Supreme Court Appeal:

Biden's anticipated appeal will be influenced by the Supreme Court's decision on whether authorities may ban domestic abusers from owning guns, which could potentially signal a path forward for his appeal or make it more challenging to overturn his conviction.

Connection to Pending Supreme Court Case:

The pending Supreme Court case dealing with domestic abusers' gun ownership may impact Biden's appeal, with potential outcomes including a limitation of gun prohibitions to individuals found to be dangerous.

Legal Background:

The charges against Hunter Biden stem from a federal law that makes it a crime to own a weapon while being an "unlawful user of or addicted to" illegal drugs.

Relevance of US v. Rahimi:

The pending case of US v. Rahimi, which challenges a prohibition of the federal disarmament law, could provide support for Biden's appeal if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Rahimi.

Support from Gun Rights Groups:

Hunter Biden's challenge to his conviction has aligned him with gun rights groups seeking to overturn related laws, and several rulings have worked in his favor.

Potential Precedents:

Recent Second Amendment rulings and pending cases, such as US v. Daniels, may be used to argue the unconstitutionality of the law in Biden's case.

Expected Supreme Court Ruling:

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the Rahimi case by the end of the month, which may have implications for Biden's appeal and other pending Second Amendment appeals.
