this is how democrats raise campaign funds


Recommended Posts

while calif state senator leland Yee, was pushing for gun control, he was also setting up a million dollar gun trafficking for campaign donations.

 

Thats $$millions in guns being provided to criminals

 

Yee was running for mayor of san fran, his corruption fits right in with the libloon agenda

 

if democrats like oblamer and Yee would quit selling guns to criminals, maybe we wouldnt need so much gun control...

just think... as mayor of san fran, yee could have ordered the police to confiscate more guns and bring them to him, where he could have a lil office "yard sale" for his gang banger buddies

 

 

why does yee keep pushing gun control ?

 

so he can get a better price for his guns

California Democrat And Gun Control Advocate Charged With Arms Trafficking

 

California Democratic State Senator and candidate for California Secretary of State, Leland Yee, a gun control advocate, has been charged with conspiring to traffic in firearms and public corruption. The charges are part of a 26 person criminal complaint and a major FBI sting operation. The full criminal complaint is a massive 137 pages that tells the story of Yee’s involvement with a broad ranging conspiracy that includes firearms trafficking, murder-for-hire, drug distribution, trafficking in contraband cigarettes, money laundering, and honest services fraud.

 

Yee is charged with “conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms” as well as six counts of honest services fraud. Each corruption charge is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000, while the gun-trafficking charge is punishable by up to five years and $250,000.

 

The firearms laws Yee is alleged to have specifically violated make it unlawful for any person:

 

except a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer, to engage in the business of importing, manufacturing, or dealing in firearms, or in the course of such business to ship, transport, or receive any firearm in interstate or foreign commerce

 

and make it unlawful for any person:

 

to transport or ship in interstate or foreign commerce, any stolen firearm or stolen ammunition, knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that the firearm or ammunition was stolen.

 

According to the criminal complaint, Yee was involved in a wide ranging scheme to make an end run around campaign finance laws. Yee sought to illegally raise funds to retire his debt from his failed mayoral campaign so that he could clear the way for his run for California Secretary of State. Working with San Francisco political consultant Keith Jackson, Yee used his power and influence to perform official acts in exchange for donations. On one occasion, Yee agreed to call a manager at the California Department of Public Health to urge support of a contract that was under consideration by the agency, Yee also agreed to provide an official letter of support in exchange for a $10,000 campaign donation. On another occasion, Yee agreed to introduce donors to various state legislators with influence over pending and proposed medical marijuana legislation, Yee is alleged to have done so in exchange for $11,000 in cash.

 

The FBI also alleges that Yee facilitated a meeting between arms dealers and undercover agents in exchange for campaign donations. The goal of the meetings was to aid the undercover agent in the purchase and importation of a large number of weapons. Yee and Jackson were involved in the trafficking conspiracy to such a degree that they even discussed the specific details of the types of weapons the undercover agent was interested in buying and importing.

 

Yee is the third California Senate Democrat embroiled in criminal charges this year, with the others charged with offenses ranging from corruption to voter fraud. Yee was one of the first California legislators to introduce legislation following the shootings in Newton, Connecticut. He earned a “D” grade on gun rights from the National Rifle Association, and The Gun Owners of California gave him a 0% rating on gun rights in 2008. Within minutes of the FBI raiding, Yee’s office, the NRA tweeted “Federal officials raided anti-gun CA Sen Leland Yee’s office at the Capitol, carting away 9 packages of evidence.”

Once again......

 

If it were not for the double standard, Democrats would have no standards at all.

Not to mention...this gun running scandals was attached to a Muslim group.

 

That should quiet the gun-grabbers for a while.

 

"One of the Democrats’ most veteran strategists warns that the party is “in decline” and “at considerable risk” when President Barack Obama is no longer on the scene."

 

“Since Obama was elected President, the Democrats have lost nine governorships, 56 members of the House and two Senate seats,” Doug Sosnik, the political director in Bill Clinton’s White House, writes in a new memo."

I wonder if Yee's illegal guns comply with his bullet button regulation...

 

A California state senator who introduced a bill to tighten the state's gun control has received a flood of racist calls and letters in response.

 

With Senate Bill 249, Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) is trying to close a loophole in one of the California gun control laws, which already includes some of the toughest restrictions in the nation.

 

It is currently illegal in California for manufacturers to sell certain guns with detachable magazines, or the storage areas that allow for repeat firing. To get around the law, manufacturers have been selling guns with tools, or conversion kits, that allow one to reload in seconds. Yee's bill seeks to ban such devices, including “bullet buttons” and "mag magnets."

 

“While most gun owners are law-abiding, it is a fact that such weapons are more likely to be used to kill an innocent person than used in self-defense," Yee said in a press release. "One only needs to look at England, Japan, and other nations with strict gun access to see that these types of gun control laws are effective in preventing gun-related homicides.”

 

The move comes after recent mass shootings in Aurora, Colo., and Milwaukee. The alleged shooter in Aurora used an AR-15, which is legal with a conversion kit in California, although the 100-round magazine he used is not.

 

"No one will convince me it's anything other than a joke to say that having multiple clips and semi-automatic weapons that can shoot 100 or more bullets at a time is necessary in this state or in this country. It's ridiculous," Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, who is a co-author, told the Sacramento Bee.

 

"I know that everyone is afraid of the strong lobby on the other side," he continued, adding that lawmakers "can't be afraid to do what is just plain common sense."

 

In response, gun rights activists have flooded Yee with racist calls and comments, about 99 percent of which are from outside the San Francisco district, according to Yee's office. Others -- via Twitter, Facebook, Calguns.net, AR15.com, AroundTheCapitol.com and other sites -- have posted offensive photos and comments, including racist caricatures of Asians and comments such as “Take this sh*t back to China you communist f*ck,” “who the f*ck let a ch*nk into office,” and “Read the AMERICAN constitution, you commie ch*nk f*ck,” among others. Yee was born in China and came to the U.S. when he was three.

 

The California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees paid for a billboard on the 101 North freeway in San Carlos that reads “Sen. Yee hates your civil rights! Stop SB 249,” the Daily Journal reports. A few sites are selling T-shirts and mugs against the bill, including a shirt that reads "No Yee Can't."

 

Scott Jackson, chief instructor for the Bay Area Firearms Training Group, told Patch that blaming guns for mass killings is akin to blaming cars for vehicle accidents.

 

He said that psychoactive drugs -- not guns -- cause massacres. “Every horrific crime is because people are on anti-depressants and psychoactive drugs," he said, adding that both the suspects in the recent Colorado and Wisconsin shootings took such medications.

 

Jackson said that if civilians were allowed to carry concealed weapons, they would be able to take out shooters and save innocent lives.

 

The National Rifle Association calls the bill a "gun ban monster" on its website and encourages members to write California legislators expressing their opposition. "Thousands of owners could be arrested for inadvertent violations," the website reads. "If you own an affected firearm, your only choices would be to destroy it, surrender it to a law enforcement agency, sell it out of state or have it confiscated at the time of your arrest!"

 

California Attorney General Kamala Harris supports SB 249, and legislators who have signed on as co-authors include Sen. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), Sen. Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley), Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Torrence), Assemblyman Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge), Assemblyman Mike Feuer (D-Los Angeles) and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), according to Yee's office.

 

The bill was approved last month by the Assembly Public Safety Committee and will be considered by the Assembly Appropriations Committee next week
