Fairfax, VA –-(Ammoland.com)- The Sacramento Bee reports that former California State Sen. Leland Yee, a gun control advocate rated “A+” by the Brady Campaign, has pled guilty to weapons-related racketeering charges in an organized crime case and now faces 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Talk about hypocrisy.

Last year we noted that in 2012, Yee said “no one will convince me it's anything other than a joke to say that having multiple clips and semi-automatic weapons that can shoot 100 or more bullets at a time is necessary in this state or in this country. It's ridiculous.”

However, during his court hearing on Wednesday, Yee “acknowledged offering to facilitate a multimillion-dollar arms deal for shoulder-fired missiles and automatic weapons with a source tied to Muslim rebel groups in the Philippines.”

ABC News further reports that those weapons were intended for distribution within the United States.

Enough said.

    I wonder if the people of California are aware of this news. The national media is of course not making any mention of it at all, I’d be surprised if the story was carried outside of the Sacramento area by any news media.

    And yet another tyrannous anti-constitutional elected official bites-the-dust.

    This act by a elected official is a act of treason according to our constitutional common law.

    Public hanging with Mr Yee as the special “guest”. Make an example of him for others to see. Maybe it will get the message through that we have had enough of his kind.
