President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden posed a threat to public safety and cannot rely on his constitutional right to a firearm to avoid prosecution for federal gun charges, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a court filing on Tuesday.

Hunter Biden’s legal team has misinterpreted U.S. Supreme Court guidance by arguing there is no historical precedent for preventing people with a history of substance abuse from possessing guns, the DOJ said.

“Anglo-American law has long recognized that the government may disarm those who, by their conduct or characteristics, present an increased risk to public safety if they possess firearms,” the DOJ said in a court filing in Delaware. …

The DOJ said laws dating back to 1328 in England have restricted people who were considered dangerous from possessing weapons. It said language from those laws were applied in the United States at the time of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment.
