(Fox Business) Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk weighed in on the guilty verdict handed down Tuesday to Hunter Biden, son of President Biden, following his trial on federal gun charges.

Musk responded to a post on X, formerly Twitter, by Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., that Hunter Biden shouldn’t be put in jail for lying about his drug use on a federal form that is required to be completed when purchasing a gun. A jury found Hunter Biden guilty on three charges related to false statements on the form and possessing a gun while being addicted to drugs.

“Hunter might deserve to be in jail for something, but purchasing a gun is not it,” Massie wrote. “There are millions of marijuana users who own guns in this country, and none of them should be in jail for purchasing or possessing a firearm against current laws.”

“I agree,” Musk responded. “He (and others) should be in jail for impugning the integrity of the United States by taking bribes for political favors, but not for this pseudo-crime.”

Hunter Biden was found guilty of making a false statement in the purchase of a gun, making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federally licensed gun dealer and possession of a gun by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance.

“I am more grateful today for the love and support I experienced this last week from Melissa, my family, my friends and my community than I am disappointed by the outcome,” Hunter Biden said in a statement following the verdict. “Recovery is possible by the grace of God, and I am blessed to experience that gift one day at a time.”

Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, said in a statement, “We are naturally disappointed by today’s verdict. We respect the jury process, and as we have done throughout this case, we will continue to vigorously pursue all the legal challenges available to Hunter.

“Through all he has been through in his recovery, including this trial, Hunter has felt grateful for and blessed by the love and support of his family.”
