“No more lectures about gun control from this incompetent fool,” commentator and Constitutional Scholar Mark Levin said after President Joe Biden released a notorious arms dealer to Russia.

In a swap of prisoners, Biden released infamous arms trafficker Viktor Bout to Russia in exchange for the return of U.S. professional women’s basketball player Brittney Griner on Thursday.

Biden should stop relentlessly lecturing Americans about his desire for greater gun control, now that he has become “one of the biggest arms merchants in the world” and is responsible for any deaths resulting from Bout’s release, Levin tweeted Friday:

“Mr. Gun Control Biden just released the most horrendous arms dealer on the planet. Any future deaths due to this release is blood on Biden’s hands, and makes Biden one of the biggest arms merchants in the world. No more lectures about gun control from this incompetent fool.”

Griner, a professional basketball player, had served four months of a nine-year sentence, after pleading guilty to drug smuggling and possession of less than a gram of cannabis oil, which she said she accidentally brought into the country.

Bout, a weapons dealer linked to brutal conflicts on several continents, had served less than half of a 25-year sentence, after being convicted on charges of conspiring to kill Americans, delivery of anti-aircraft missiles, and aiding a terrorist organization.

On Thursday, in an interview with Fox News's Harris Faulkner, Rep. Michael Waltz (R-Fla.) said that, while he was glad that Griner was home safe, he was dismayed that Biden had not secured the release of former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan, who is still in a Russian prison, having served four years of a 16-year sentence:

"So my heart breaks for the Whelan family. I think, you know, a lot of people are asking, and rightly so, so what was his crime -- not being a celebrity? Not checking enough boxes for Hollywood? The fact that we left a U.S. Marine behind and made this choice. And I don't buy the Biden administration and President Biden saying we didn't have a choice.”
