Gun Control Senator Sentenced for Trafficking Arms

By Dave Dolbee published on

Two years ago, California State Senator Leland Yee told CBS: “It is extremely important that individuals in the state of California do not own assault weapons. I mean that is just so crystal clear—there is no debate, no discussion.” As a legislator, Yee supported strict gun control laws and was even named to the Brady Campaign’s Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll. Last Wednesday, Yee received a five-year prison sentence for accepting bribes and trafficking in illegal arms. Is anyone still wondering how gun control legislation gets passed?

Disgraced California Senator Leland Yee

From staunch gun control advocate to being convicted of taking bribes and conspiring to illegally traffick firearms.

Around the time of Yee’s arrest, The Shooter’s Log covered the events in the article, Gun Running, Corruption, Murder-for-Hire… California Lawmaker?

After initially denying culpability, Yee pleaded guilty to the charges last summer.

During sentencing, Judge Breyer was unsympathetic to Yee’s plea for leniency. While holding public office, Yee accepted thousands of dollars in campaign contributions in exchange for political favors. In addition, Yee was involved in a weapons trafficking plot, discovered by undercover federal agents investigating organized crime in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

“It must be, that the public has trust in the integrity of the institution, and Mr. Yee, you abused that trust,” Breyer said, according to the Times. He called Yee’s actions “vile” and the arms dealings particularly “hypocritical” given the politician’s history of gun control advocacy.

In addition to Yee’s bribery charges, the disgraced California politician pled guilty to accepting $6,800 and a list of arms to be purchase in the Philippines. Remember, this was the senator who said, “It is extremely important that individuals in the state of California do not own assault weapons. I mean that is just so crystal clear—there is no debate, no discussion.” Likewise, as a legislator, Yee supported strict gun control laws and was named to the Brady Campaign’s Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll.
