Anti 2A Dem busted for gun running

Recommended Posts

On March 26th gun control proponent and California state senator Leland Yee (D) was indicted on charges of arms trafficking and public corruption.

According to The LA Times, the indictment alleges Yee and "former school board president Keith Jackson... were involved in a scheme to traffic firearms in exchange for thousands in campaign donations to [Yee]."

The Associated Press reports that Yee was to receive campaign donations in exchange for various favors, including acquiring arms from a Muslim rebel group. The people with whom the deals were made turned out to be undercover FBI agents.

According to the Associated Press:

Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder fired automatic weapons and missiles, and took him through the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the United States, according to the affidavit by FBI Special Agent Emmanuel V. Pascua.

According to Project Vote Smart, Yee voted "yea" for the proposed California assault weapons ban (SB 374) in 2013. He also voted "yea" for the ban on lead hunting ammunition and "yea" for background checks for ammunition purchases.

Yee was a co-sponsor of SB 755, which expanded the "list of crimes that disqualify an individual from firearm ownership."
