California Anti-Gun State Senator Leland Yee Is A Gun Trafficker & Scumbag

Criminal charges, including conspiracy to traffic firearms, have been brought against CA anti-gun State Senator Leland Yee.

If these allegations are true, Sen. Yee is easily the biggest hypocrite on gun control to walk the halls of the capitol in Sacramento, if not the entire United States.

Hypocrisy and lies are nothing new to the anti-gun crowd. We’ve seen similar cases against members of Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns but nothing as major as these allegations.

Yee is charged with conspiracy to traffic in firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms, as well as six counts of scheming to defraud citizens of honest services. Each corruption count is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000, while the gun-trafficking count is punishable by up to five years and $250,000.

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

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

This is the same man that 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.

The 137-page complaint is simply staggering. Here’s a prominent anti-gun Democrat state senator allegedly involved in a gun trafficking scheme, among other alleged crimes that include wire fraud and dealing firearms without a license. And this guy has spent a considerable amount of energy in the California legislature trying to deny law-abiding Californians of their gun rights.

The gun trafficking scheme allegedly involved activities in the Philippines, with the cash to be broken up into “legitimate campaign donations,” according to the court documents.

It is hard to fathom this kind of activity on a scale as massive as these court documents allege. If Sen. Yee and his fellow defendants are convicted, they’re going to wind up in one of the biggest gun-free zones in the country, a federal prison.

 

Detroit Police Stand with Citizens Who Are Using Guns for Self-Defense

With “fatal self-defense shootings on the rise in Detroit,” law-abiding citizens know one thing–Detroit police have their back.

According to The Detroit News, “justified” self-defense shootings in Detroit are hovering around 10 since January 1st.

This is up considerably from 2013, in which “there were 15 justifiable [self-defense shootings] in the city” during the entire year.

And far from criticizing the fact that more and more homeowners are standing up for their lives and property, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said he views this rebirth of self-defense as proof that”more and more Detroiters are becoming empowered.”

Connecticut law requiring permit or certificate for sale, transfer of long guns takes effect

Published on: April 3, 2014

Starting Tuesday, April 1, long guns may not be sold or transferred in Connecticut without a permit to carry pistols or revolvers or an eligibility certificate for pistols or revolvers or a long gun eligibility certificate, according to the state police.

The law is part of the package of gun control legislation passed by the General Assembly last year after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Other parts of the law had already taken effect.

The law required owners of assault weapons that were banned under the law to register their guns by Jan. 1, 2014. That was also the deadline for the registration of large capacity magazines. The law also put in place universal background checks, barred the sales of ammunition to anyone under 18 and created a dangerous weapon offender registry.

The state police said as of Tuesday, that the permits can also be used for the purchase of ammunition. Anyone intending to purchase only ammunition and not any further firearms will be required only to obtain an ammunition certificate.

According to the state police, sales authorization numbers will be required for all firearm sales, retail or private, and must be submitted to the Special Licensing and Firearms Unit using form DPS-3-C (sale or transfer of all firearms). A DPS-67-C form (application to purchase firearms) must be filled out and retained by the seller. The forms are available at the state DESPP website…

The Media Won’t Cover Leland Yee’s Alleged Gun-Running Because They’re Democrat Operatives with By-Lines

The only thing I can do with this Glenn Reynolds column is endorse every single word of it. It is absolutely right.

Yee told an FBI agent that, in exchange for $2 million in cash, he’d fill a shopping list of weapons, which he took personal responsibility for delivering, according to the indictment. He also allegedly “masterminded” a complex scheme bring illegal weapons into the country, agreeing to “facilitate” a meeting with an illegal arms dealer to arrange for the weapons to be imported via Newark, N.J. In arranging all of this, the indictment said, Yee relied on connections with Filipino terrorist groups who could supply “heavy” weapons, including the Muslim terrorists of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. Yee allegedly noted that the Muslim terrorists had no reservations about kidnapping, extortion and murder.

This all sounds like news. You’ve got charges of huge bribes, rampant hypocrisy, illegal weapons and even a connection with foreign terrorists — and from a leading politician in an important state.

But — and here’s the part Hollywood would miss — outside of local media like San Francisco magazine, the coverage was surprisingly muted.The New York Timesburied the story as a one-paragraph Associated Press report on page A21, with the bland dog-bites-man headline, “California: State Senator Accused of Corruption.” This even though Yee was suspended, along with two others, from the California state senate in light of the indictment.

CNN, home (also until last week) of Piers Morgan, whom Yee had praised for his anti-gun activism, didn’t report the story at all. When prodded by viewers, the networksnarked that it doesn’t do state senators. Which is odd, because searching the name of my own state senator, Stacey Campfield, turns up a page of results, involving criticisms of him for saying something “extreme”. Meanwhile, CNN found time to bashWisconsin state senator and supporter of Gov. Scott Walker, Randy Hopper over marital problems.

But there’s a difference. They’re Republicans. When Republicans do things that embarrass their party, the national media are happy to take note, even if they’re mere state senators. But when Democrats like Yee get busted for actual felonies, and pretty dramatic ones at that, the press suddenly isn’t interested.

Read the rest.

If he hadn’t been forced out of the race by being arrested, what would Leland Yee have done with the California secretary of state post? There’s a question that no one in the media will even think of pursuing.

Article 5 Constitutional Convention is Almost a Reality (Mark Levin Victory)

Rep. Duncan Hunter on Tuesday asked Congress to evaluate whether enough states have officially called for a constitutional convention to propose a balanced budget amendment — marking the next step toward what could be an historic gathering.

Mr. Hunter, California Republican, said Congress should take stock of where things stand after Michigan last week approved an official call for a balanced budget amendment convention. According to some analysts, Michigan’s move makes it the 34th state to request a convention.

“It is my belief that the House should lead an effort to ascertain whether 34 states have voted affirmatively,” Mr. Hunter said in a letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner.

“A balanced budget amendment is long overdue and remains an effective tool to address runaway spending and deficits,” he wrote. “With the recent decision by Michigan lawmakers, it is important that the House — and those of us who support a balanced budget amendment — determine whether the necessary number of states have acted and the appropriate role of Congress should this be the case.”

NY Troopers PBA: Hey, our members didn’t pass SAFE (“Just Following Orders” BS)

Statement From NY Troopers PBA:

The NY SAFE Act has been a controversial and emotional topic since its passage in January of 2013. The NYS Troopers PBA, representing more than 6,000 active and retired members, has reserved public comment as we worked within the legislative process of NYS government with the hope of affecting changes to the law. Our membership holds widely shared concerns of this new law. Additionally, we believe that actual enforcement of these new regulations will significantly increase the hazards of an already dangerous job.

Polls have shown that increased firearm regulations are not popular in the more rural and upstate regions of our state, which is where the majority of our members live and patrol. Additionally, some in mainstream media have already irresponsibly increased the anti-police rhetoric, which fosters additional resentment of law enforcement. Even some of our elected officials, like Senator Ranzenhofer and Assemblyman Gabryszak, are calling for a probe of our members and their efforts to meet the standards of this new law.

It is the responsibility of this union to defend the reputation and safety of our members. Potential legislative changes as well as pending court decisions may further alter the terms of the SAFE Act. The individual members of this union did not write the terms of the bill nor vote on its passage. We urge the citizens of New York State to remember that Troopers are simply tasked with the lawful mandate to enforce the laws of the State, regardless of their personal opinion of such laws.

SAF WINS PERMANENT INJUNCTION AGAINST NEW MEXICO’S CITIZEN-ONLY CCW LAW

The chief U.S. District Court judge in New Mexico granted a permanent injunction yesterday against the State of New Mexico’s “citizens only” concealed carry law that unfairly discriminated against permanent legal resident aliens in a case brought by the Second Amendment Foundation.

Chief Judge M. Christina Armijo issued an order yesterday that says the New Mexico statute “violates the Equal Protection Clause” of the Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment.

“This is a victory not only for our plaintiff, John W. Jackson, but for all permanent legal resident aliens who are otherwise qualified to obtain a concealed handgun license,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.

Jackson is an Australian citizen, but resides in Rio Rancho, N.M.

“One of the more significant notations in the ruling,” Gottlieb said, “is that the court found New Mexico’s statute discriminates on the basis of alienage, and as a result, was subject to strict scrutiny.”

The ruling does not declare the state’s concealed carry law unconstitutional, but it does conclude that the remedy for violating the equal protection clause is to sever the citizenship provision from the statute. This can be done, the judge said, “without impairing the remainder” of the state’s concealed carry law, which still requires an applicant to meet all of the state’s remaining requirements.

“This is one more example of how SAF is winning firearms rights one lawsuit at a time,” Gottlieb said. “Mr. Jackson has demonstrated that he is a productive member of the community and certainly did not give up any right to personal protection by moving from his country to our country.”

Colorado’s 2012 Gun Ban Go to Trial AT LAST!

Sheriff John Cooke addresses Northern Colorado Law Enforcement and residents at the grand opening of the Northern Colorado Regional Forensic Laboratory.

 

Colorado’s new gun restrictions went on trial Monday as Second Amendment advocates seek to overturn the laws on grounds that they violate constitutional rights to keep and bear arms.

An attorney for the state defended the ammunition magazine limits and expanded background checks, saying the measures were a suitable response to high-profile shooting rampages.

In his opening statement, Deputy Attorney General Matthew Grove noted Colorado’s tortured history with mass shootings, from the Columbine High School attack in 1999 to the Aurora movie theater massacre in 2012. He also mentioned the shooting spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in 2012.

Responding to such events last year, “Colorado’s elected representatives made a policy decision to pass two pieces of legislation that appropriately balances the state public’s safety concerns with the respect of the Second Amendment rights of citizens,” Grove said.

Attorney Richard Westfall, representing gun rights advocates, countered by saying the laws “were passed with almost no evidence or data” that they would make people safer, and he criticized lawmakers as trying “to legislate for the sake of legislating in the wake of the Aurora theater shooting.”

The arguments in Denver federal court kicked off a two-week trial on an issue that’s been among Colorado’s most politically contentious in recent memory.

Bob Lonsberry: PIERS MORGAN WAS ON TV?

Apparently, Piers Morgan had a TV show.

It was on CNN.

He was the host nobody watched on the network nobody watched.

And on Friday they cut him loose. Hopefully, now he’ll go back to wherever people who talk funny come from.

But as a parting shot, just before they turned out the lights, he lectured us benighted colonials on our nasty taste for guns. He told us we needed more gun control and would remain in the category of Third World savages until we do it.

He said he did this because he loved us Americans, and wanted to keep more of us alive.

As if we don’t have enough self-important liberals in America, CNN had to import one. And he, like all of his progressive friends, figures that it’s his business to tell you how to live.

And you’ve got to get rid of your guns.

Even though if it wasn’t for your guns, he’d be speaking German.

What Piers Morgan, as a subject of her majesty, may not realize, is that in America we value freedom. That’s why we’re not subjects of her majesty.

We are descended from people who told an English king to go screw himself. Piers Morgan is descended from people who curtsy. We’re wired different.

More to the point, we’re wired right.

And he’s wired European.

Even though I’m personally a prude on the issue of drugs, that doesn’t stop me from opposing the Drug War, both for moral and practical reasons.

After all, how can any sensible and decent person want laws that produce these outrageous results?

The DEA trying to confiscate a commercial building because a tenant sold some marijuana.

The government seeking to steal a hotel because some guests sold some marijuana.

Cops raiding an organic nursery and seizing blackberry bushes.

In 21st-century America, the most innocent of activities could have a SWAT team busting down your door. Reason profiles the Harte family, who were the victims of a SWAT home invasion after police raided their garbage cans (h/t Ben Domench). An unreliable field test falsely identified Addie Harte’s trashed teabags as marijuana, and SWAT leapt into action. The Hartes didn’t just suffer the trauma of the raid—they had to spend $25,000 just to find out why they were targeted.

Democrat NY City Coucilwoman Gets on Ballot & Wins Election with 81% Fraudulent Signatures

Council Member Maria Del Carmen Arroyo asking pointed questions of Eva Moskowitz (out of frame), executive director of the Harlem Success Academy charter schools, at a hearing on charter schools at the Education Committee in the City Council chamber on Monday, April 6, 2009.

Three former campaign workers for Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo were officially charged with fraud Wednesday.

Betty Julien, Elbin Lopez and Luis Vargas were quietly arrested Tuesday night — eight months after being accused by the elected official of forging signatures for her reelection petitions.

The trio of hired staffers were fingered by the Councilwoman after volunteers for her primary challenger, Julio Pabon, noticed names such as Derek Jeter Jr. and Kate Moss on the rolls.

“I thought this was all behind me,” said Lopez, 49, looking dazed as he left the courtroom.

Arroyo, who went on to win both the primary and general elections, was nearly booted from the ballot for lack of legitimate signatures.

A staggering 81% of the 3,339 signatures filed by the campaign were deemed invalid.
