[VIDEO] Anti-Gun Senator Leland Yee: ‘The Laws He Was Pushing Pale in Comparison to The Laws He Was Breaking’Posted: April 5, 2014
NRA News‘ Ginny Simone reports the story the way CNN should have
California State Senator Leland Yee, a leading gun-control activist, was arrested March 26 in an FBI sting and charged with conspiring to traffic in firearms and public corruption. “This is heavy-duty international arms trafficking with organized crime figures,” says Civil Rights Attorney Chuck Michel. “The laws that he was pushing pale in comparison to the laws that he was breaking.”
The Leland Yee story is one of the most remarkable in years. A California State Senator, Yee has long been a leading spokesman for gun control–it’s all for the children, you know. A popular politician who represents around one-half of San Francisco, Yee was about to run for Secretary of State when he was arrested for gun running. Specifically, he acted as an intermediary to buy shoulder-fired missiles and automatic weapons from a Muslim terrorist group in the Philippines and import them into the U.S. There were other charges, too; the usual bribery, money laundering, and so on.
Now, one might think that this is a major scandal. A prominent politician, a principled advocate of gun control, turns out to be a gun runner who wants to import shoulder-fired missiles, in exchange for a large bribe. How could the networks resist a story like that?! Poor CNN has been limping along with a lousy lane closure for what, two or three years now? A dynamite story like Yee’s could put them back on the ratings map!
