Using Sen. "Gun Runner" Yee's Arrest To Call For More Gun Control

Let me see if I have this straight. Federal law requires a license to deal in firearms. Federal law also requires both a license and permits to import firearms into the United States. Leland Yee was arrested and indicted on charges that he conspired to violate both these Federal laws. Therefore, we need an executive order banning the import of "lethal assault weapons" so says Yee's Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA).

From an email response Speier sent to
“This FBI investigation of Leland Yee reveals how easy it is to import lethal assault weapons that were previously banned,” said Speier in an emailed statement from the Representative’s office to

“This case should be a warning to us all that even the most trusted appearing among us are ready to do real harm,” she said.

Her solution to fix future instances of potential gun running such as in the Yee case? Call on the White House to ban the import of “assault weapons.”

“Since Congress can pass no meaningful gun-control laws, even after the mass killing in Newtown, President Obama should use his pen to slow the import of these weapons, which have no place in our homes,” wrote Speier.
Just when you think you've heard everything...


  1. President Obama should use his executive pen to resign from office and apologize to United States citizens for violating the Constitution.

  2. Wait, weren't the ones Leland Yee was trying to import already banned? Ban them harder? Make it illegaler? These weapons are on the double secret ban list? Gee, I'm glad our best and brightest are on the case for us.

  3. Leland Yee showed how futile it is to even try and ban landmines, grenades and rocket launchers.

  4. So the former Senator Yee from the land of fruits and nuts, sponsor of SB 249 in 2012 to end the bullet button end run around by S&W and a guy who made the Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll according to the Brady Campaign, (formerly Handgun Control, Inc) has been caught importing semi-automatic, burst and full-auto capable IMI Tavor assault weapons and 400 modified RPG-7s......... ya know what they say about karma - couldn't have happened to a bigger scumbag; of course that just my opinion, I could be wrong.
