Liberal California state Sen. Leland Yee has been a fervent advocate of gun control, but with recent allegations that he was involved in illegal gun trafficking, his previous statements are quickly making him the poster boy for left-wing hypocrisy. Check out the video above, posted May 24, 2012, where he says it’s “so crystal clear” that there’s no reason for California residents to own assault weapons. “No debate, no discussion.”

    I’ve played the video numerous times and believe it’s been doctored. The Senator’s comments were maliciously shortened however intact went on to say “I don’t want people to buy assault guns” “…from the competition so this Memorial Day only half price on everything in stock”.

  • WookieeCon

    He’s just doing this to show that the laws we have now don’t go far enough. It’s like, “Look, I can sell these guns in Cali. We must need tougher laws in place.”

    And how will the liberal media spin this? probably by either not talking about it at all or by mentioning that he was arrested (but not explain why) and use that tidbit to segue into talking about his wanting to get rid of the evil bullet button.

    • H50 ✓RAT

      Thats how they covered it on our local station. Yee was the subject of a probe. No mention of party affiliation, arrest, charges or arraignment. They did however hype his anti-gun stance.

      • traffic_robot

        Yes. Even Steinberg is obviously freaked out by this one. Sounds like this one was flying too close to the CA legislature sun, with the access Yee sold. I didn’t think Wright and Calderon could be topped.

    • Donald-Now2x/Sarc-w/0calories

      You don’t think this imbecile will ACTUALLY GET ANY jail time with Holder in charge of the DOJ, do you? And how long before members of the oriental community/lame stream media borrow the playbook from the Black Caucus and decry this whole thing as RAAAAAACIST???? Or that it is actually Bush’s/GOP’S fault? My guess is in: 3, 2, 1…..

      • traffic_robot

        I understand your skepticism. I certainly won’t put on my shocked face if he gets anything less than the maximum. However, because he sold access to a fellow member of the legislature, I think that has his colleagues spooked, and they are already walking away. This is the third dem state legislature member to get into major legal trouble in the past year. After trying to tow the party line, senate pro tem Steinberg (big-ass D) has so much egg on his face, he can’t defend Yee with any amount of (his already non-existent) credibility. More importantly, Yee was about to term-out of office, so his worth to his party was already diminished (his district isn’t about to flip to an R anytime soon). Yee couldn’t get elected mayor in SF, his current sec of state campaign wasn’t getting anywhere, so it would appear his only marketable skill is being a sell-out weasel. This may work well for him in prison.

    So, legally purchasing guns is bad, but illegal gun trafficking is good? Last I checked, background checks don’t usually apply to the latter.

    • Donald-Now2x/Sarc-w/0calories

      Well, if you don’t need an ID to vote, why should you need a background check to illegally buy guns from a gun running, crooked, criminal, morally bankrupt U.S. Senator?

  • DV S1EOG

    First it is a proponent of the NY SAFE Act arrested for carrying a concealed gun into an elementary school in NY, thus violating the SAFE Act, and now it is an anti-gun former CA State Senator arrested for being a gun runner. Hahahahahaha.

    Hey anti 2nd Amendment (Democrat/libturd) trolls; this man is “allegedly” tied to Asian mob. He wants no US citizen, or California citizen to be exact, to have a rifle with a bullet button, but he traffics firearms to criminals. You may say conservatives are crooked too, WHICH only reinforces what I am saying here, I trust nobody, especially politicians, just like most people who understand and exercise the 2nd. I have nothing left to say to you, go eat granola bar, hug a tree and be happy.

  • http://commentspammersmustdie.blogspot.com/ Kakarot

    It’s extremely important that individuals in the state of California do not own assault weapons

    (If, on the other hand, obeying the law is not all that important to you, please go around to the back and knock three times on the door. One of my associates will let you in to look around. Bring lots of money. @LelandYee)

    It was purely a business decision. When guns are banned, the demand for them rises in the black market. Being in control of the black market, he did everything he could to ensure his profits by banning guns.

    • djm1992✓𝒢𝑒𝓃𝒹𝑒𝓇 𝒢𝒾𝒻𝓉𝑒𝒹 ☭⁻ᴴ⁸ᴿ

      And a very shrewd one at that. In addition to creating a market for his “services,” he also ensured his business would face little competition for market share – pretty hard for law abiding citizens to become arms dealers when you can’t legally purchase an inventory of guns to sell. You’ve got to know some shady characters to help you get started. Most law-abiding citizens don’t know these characters -but Leland Yee sure does!

      Ban guns, force customers to come to you for them, and prohibit law-abiding business interests from getting into the market and competing with you. Win-win!

      • H50 ✓RAT

        Exactly.

  • GaryUSMCvet.

    I shed no tears for Yee, this guy has been at the forefront of disarming CA civilians, yet, he’s an alleged weapons smuggler. No semi-auto rifles for me — but shoulder fired rockets for thee.

  • traffic_robot

    This is my favorite quote from Yee in the complaint affidavit: “People want to get whatever they want to get. Do I care? No, I don’t care. People need certain things.” Hey, Yee was a closet libertarian and didn’t even know it! I just wish I could bottle up this affidavit so I could drink from it and bath in it ALL DAY LONG.

    Guess the oath he took to upheld and defend the Constitution didn’t really mean much to him — just a mere formality. Considering he has deprived Americans of the right to bear arms — yet willing to help criminals acquire the same weapons.
