California Gun Owners Enjoy the Day…

Well, the decision on San Francisco laws was unpleasant news late yesterday, but at least California gun owners can be happy that one Second Amendment opponent isn’t quite as likely to be a threat in the future. Sen. Leeland Yee was just arrested on bribery and corruption charges, and the FBI is apparently raiding his offices at the moment.

    It’s too bad that a conviction of bribery and/or corruption won’t force an automatic re-evaluation of all the laws he’s managed to get passed.

    Couldn’t happen to a nice guy(/snark), but I can’t help feeling that this is a backdoor political move to get him out of the way and make room for another candidate. The Democrat’s deadlock on issues and candidates is so great here, it’s about the only way to effect change – even from within. So it’s such-much Democrat Cannibalism in action!

    Now if they would just add violation of 18 USC 242 to the list of charges that would really make me smile.

    Someone is corrupt, just hard to determine who it s these days.

  5. Oakenheart says:

    “Federal officials charged California State Senator Leland Yee on Wednesday with conspiracy to deal firearms and wire fraud.”

    Looks like he took his cues from Sullivan in NY – Disarm the good people so his criminal buddies don’t get shot up.

  6. SayUncle says:

    Even better, charged with firearms trafficking.

    Russian Arms “through the Port of Newark, New Jersey.” New Jersey?? That’s Un-possible!

  8. Spade says:

    Page 25 says that Lee knows arms dealers and facilitated illegal importation.

    And read 82 to 85. Lee is happy to help illegally import fully automatic weapons

    I remember Lee whining to the press that lawful gun owners were angry with him over his strong anti-gun positions and sponsored legislation. He sort of painted himself a “saint” of what is good and pure, ridding the streets of those evil firearms.

    And now he’s charged with gun trafficking.

    Pardon my french, but I think it’s still safe to say that Mr. Lee is a fucking son of a bitch. In addition to the nailing of his ass to the wall, I hope he is shamed beyond what is tolerable.

    Happy happy joy joy! Wonderful news.

  11. Rob Crawford says:

    Criminal activity is a requirement for office in the Democrat party. It gives the Inner Party a handle on the office-holder and lets them know they’ll play along.

  12. Dwight Brown says:

    It just gets better and better. As other folks have pointed out, Yee is charged with firearms trafficking. What I haven’t seen anybody (except Walter Olson) point out yet is that Yee was named to the “Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll” by the Brady Campaign.
