Plenty of good articles about Leland Yee, the disgrace from Kommifornia.
From ammoland.com and Rob Morse;
Southern California --(Ammoland.com)- Democrat State Senator Leland Yee was arrested for firearms import violations, wire fraud and political corruption.He has A very good final thought.
That is the tip of the iceberg in this FBI probe into gun running. Yee and former school board president Keith Jackson were the go-between between the undercover FBI agents and the gangster Raymond Chow. Keith Jackson and his son, Brandon Jackson, sold bullet proof vests, and guns, and offered stolen credit cards, cocaine and murder for hire.
State Senator Yee, San Francisco, was against civilian firearms before he was for them. He claimed that California citizens would be safer once rifles dating back a hundred years were outlawed and citizens were disarmed. Yee authored bills like SB 47, SB 108 and SB249 to regulate and eliminate magazine fed firearms in California.. except the guns Yee sold to undercover FBI agents, of course. Yee sought publicity for his anti gun stance.
California citizens are guilty too. Too many California voters will continue to support corrupt Democrat politicians who make expensive promises using other people’s money. That is particularly true of Senator Yee’s district of San Francisco. California voters will soon forget that some of that political money is from criminals.Yahoo News gets in on it with the headline;
Gun control advocates: Lawmaker arrest is setback

But what we're really worried about is that this will further destroy the momentum for gun control here in California."Well isn't that just too bad. Why do these people hate freedom so much? They think that by punishing lawful gun owners instead of criminals, we will be somehow safer.

Yee Will Not Be Punished for His Worst Crimes
California State Senator Leland Yee has established himself as one of that state's most rabidly anti-gun lawmakers--and competition for that title is fierce indeed. That makes his arrest on charges of corruption and, of all things, weapons trafficking, deliciously ironic to gun-rights advocates in California and across the nation. Hypocrisy of such purity is rarely found, even in politics.
Yee is accused of arranging a complex plan to illegally import millions of dollars worth of weapons, including machine guns and missiles, which were to be provided by Islamic extremist groups in the Philippines.
