Iowa Woman Sent to Federal Prison for Lying on 4473, What About Hunter Biden?

Lying on the ATF’s Firearms Transaction Record, aka a Form 4473, is a big deal.

Those who make false statements on 4473s face serious consequences, as one Iowa woman learned last week.

Miracle Star Vaughn, 27, is due to spend the next 12 months in federal prison for, as the ATF put it in a recent press release, “making false statements during the purchase of firearms.”

Vaughn apparently lied about her drug use and her address while filling out the form. She purchased seven handguns over the course of 18 months and apparently handed them off to convicted felons.

The ATF reported:

One of the firearms Vaughn purchased was recovered in Chicago in the possession of Dimione Walker. Walker was a felon prohibited from possessing firearms, and also had a federal warrant for his arrest. One of the other guns Vaughn purchased was recovered in the possession of her significant other and co-defendant, Michael Haythorn, also a felon prohibited from possessing firearms.

Long story short, Vaughn did the crime, now she’s gotta do the time. Remember, there is no early release for federal prisoners. And once she gets out, she’ll be under three years of supervised release.

“Straw purchasing is a serious crime that contributes to the epidemic of gun violence,” United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal of the Southern District of Iowa said. “We will continue to partner with federal and local law enforcement to hold accountable those who illegally purchase firearms.”

Gunwriter Lee Williams brought up a great point in a recent article covering this very story. It’s titled, “Woman who lied about drugs during gun purchase sent to prison: What about Hunter?”

Indeed! What about Hunter Biden?

He’s done the same darn thing! We know, because both Hunter and his father, President Joe Biden, have copped to it, as GunsAmerica previously reported.

Overview of Key Allegations and Controversies Involving Hunter Biden Reported by Mainstream Media

AllegationTimelineSpecific DetailsSource
Drug useLate 1990s – 2010sHunter Biden has struggled with substance abuse, including crack cocaine and alcohol, which led to rehab stints and a discharge from the U.S. Navy Reserve.The New Yorker
Ukraine business dealings2014 – 2019Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company, raising concerns about conflicts of interest and influence-peddling given his father’s role as U.S. Vice President at the time.BBC News
China business dealings2013 – 2020Hunter Biden was involved in investment and business ventures in China, sparking concerns about potential conflicts of interest and influence, particularly during Joe Biden’s vice presidency and presidential campaign.The Guardian
Laptop controversy2019, reported in 2020A laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden was given to a repair shop, and its contents were leaked to the media, including controversial emails and explicit images. The authenticity of the laptop and its contents were questioned, and the incident was characterized by some as a politically-motivated smear campaign.The New York Times

Lee wrote, “Hunter Biden should be subjected to the same standard of justice that Miracle Star Vaughn received, if not more. After all, the 53-year-old unemployed drug addict is a negligent discharge just waiting to happen. His own videos show him holding a cocked 9mm Beretta with his finger on the trigger, after smoking crack in a motel room with naked prostitutes. It’s only a matter of time before Hunter puts a round in someone.”

But Hunter isn’t behind bars. Nope. Instead, he’s now selling his “artwork” to unknown individuals for tens of thousands of dollars!!!

This dual system of justice — one for the president’s son and one for everyone else — is cancerous to our Republic as it undermines the foundational principle of equality before the law.

Hunter Biden’s get-out-of-jail-free card needs to be revoked! Do you agree?

    NO, Hunter’s “Get Out Of Jail Free” card does not need to be revoked,, HE need to be REVOKED

  • roger d johnson May 8, 2023, 9:00 am

    Hunter who?

  • Frank May 6, 2023, 9:25 am

    The only reason the devout BLM/Marxist Troll, “Blu-Dumbass” posts here is to try and piss-off normal US citizens, and generate replies. Don’t take the bait. He most likely has plenty you don’t want to catch!

  • Bob W May 5, 2023, 4:12 pm

    If people aren’t worried about the trump kids they should stop worrying about that asshole Hunter. The trump kids did so much more damage to our great country then that junkie Hunter ever could.

    • D.J. May 6, 2023, 10:58 pm

      Bob , you have an unusual perceptual ability .
      Asking for an explanation would certainly be a waste of time .

    • Let's go Brandon, FJB May 8, 2023, 6:02 am

      @Bob W, wow TDS has severely fried your simple mind. The Trump family has done a lot of good for our country. Sloppy joe’s corrupt family is destroying our great country. FJB!

    • Hondo May 8, 2023, 7:24 am

      Oh look another circus clown, take your TDS and get lost you mental deficient.

  • Dano May 5, 2023, 2:30 pm

    False equivalence. The woman was a straw purchaser. You guys are so ridiculous with your Hunter Biden obsessions.

    • Frank May 6, 2023, 9:12 am

      Yeah, right. Only one appropriate response for you concerning the crackhead… “Book ’em, Dano”!

      BTW, influence peddling with our nation’s enemies is treasonous at best. Treason is still punishable by hanging.

    • Doc Loch May 6, 2023, 9:41 am

      They don’t call you people trolls for nothing. Oh, and to be clear, Trolls are imaginary creatures known for their abject stupidity. Can a troll understand the last sentence? Remains to be seen….

      • J. Smith May 8, 2023, 5:18 am

        Then there is self-evident

    • Hondo May 8, 2023, 7:21 am

      Dano appears to be a slow witted mouth breather, be gone window licker, so the adults can converse with your imbecilic input.

  • Randy May 5, 2023, 1:06 pm

    Vaughn should serve 1 year per firearm. I think 12 months is extremely light considering where the firearms were being distributed.
    As far as hunter, too bad that worthless pos is untouchable!

  • Sean May 5, 2023, 8:29 am

    So idiots like bluedog can get a platform on guns America but I can’t post? Wtf. Bluedog, we all know you’re not on our side, you’ll never get us on your silly side.

  • Dr Motown May 5, 2023, 7:17 am

    Nothing will happen….the Republicans on the investigating committee have stated on TV that they’re “not interested” in his lying on the gun purchase, and want to drag out the investigation on his other allegations (tax fraud, illegal payments from foreign companies, etc) instead. Rules for thee but not for me🤷🏽‍♂️

    “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?”

    Hunter Biden is a man with a troubled past, nobody disputes that. Was he an active user at the time he made the firearm purchase? More specifically, was he using illegally at the time of purchase? Most of the guys commenting here say they want rights to be equally applied – does not a reformed junkie have the same rights as a person who had remained sober his or her whole life? Many would argue that the right to bear arms sHaLl NoT bE iNfRiNgEd, should it be infringed upon those who have had a hand up to get out of such a terrible past? The presumption of innocence extends to this question and they who want to lock Hunter Biden up over this question have judged him guilty of the disease of drug addiction at the time of purchase have the burden of proof that he was an active user at the time of purchase.

    “Alcoholism is a disease, but the only one you can get yelled at for having.” – Mitch Hedberg. I guess drug addiction is now too.

      blue dog has to be a bot, given the stupidity that is normally spewed under the blue dog name……………throughout the comments sections of articles in GunsAmerica. No logical, thinking reasonably intelligent human would put forth such drivel.

      • Richard May 5, 2023, 8:22 am

        Bluedog/ troll is a DU plant.

        • AK1947 May 5, 2023, 1:29 pm

          What does DU stand for ?

    • Richard May 5, 2023, 8:22 am

      Go back to DU, you liberal troll! Log out and never come back.

      • TimmyG May 5, 2023, 9:06 am

        So you want proof of the crime (at the time) to lock up Hunter, but you need no proof of any crime whatsoever to confiscate suppressors? By the way, the people with suppressors go through extensive background checks to ensure they have no criminal past. Sounds like some more democratic double standards to me……

      • Walleye May 5, 2023, 11:17 am

        My version of the Urban Dictionary has no references to DU. Can you help a brother?

        • Richard May 8, 2023, 6:26 am

          It’s a website where these liberal trolls come from. Democratic underground.

    • Kane May 5, 2023, 11:23 am

      Poor deep state privileged Hunter who beats up sex workers. He has a disease but BD never cares about the law abiding people that are targetted by the ATF. Is owning a 1911 some form of a pathogen, maybe a virus, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, or worms. This is the baffeling world of the left that BD embraces.

      Did BD really have an FFL and is he OK with the fake POTUS (genuine POS) Admin and the ZERO policy? Nothing said by BD along those lines, just kind words of support for Hunter.

    • Shanz May 6, 2023, 2:17 pm

      Yeah but Trump though huh BD?

    • Hondo May 8, 2023, 7:17 am

      More nonsense from bluedouche it/clown, get lost you empty headed troll, we have grown tired of your imbecilic comment. Be gone troll.
