Anti-gun Senator Sells Illegal Guns to FBI Agent

March 27, 2014

Democrat State Senator Leland Yee was arrested for firearms import violations, wire fraud and political corruption. That is the tip of the iceberg in this FBI probe into gun running. Yee and former school board president Keith Jackson were the go-between for the undercover FBI agents and the gangster Raymond Chow.  Keith Jackson and his son, Brandon Jackson, also sold bullet proof vests, and guns, and they offered stolen credit cards, cocaine and murder for hire.

You may remember California State Senator Yee from San Francisco.  Yee was against civilian firearms before he was for them.  He claimed that California citizens would be safer once rifles dating back a hundred years were outlawed and citizens were disarmed.  Yee authored bills like SB 47, SB 108 and SB249 to regulate and eliminate magazine fed firearms in California..  well, except the guns Yee sold to undercover FBI agents, of course.

Yee sought publicity for his anti gun stance when he tweeted-

Leland Yee @LelandYee
Thank you @KamalaHarris for supporting #SB249. Together we will strengthen #CA assault weapon law & help protect public

Senator Yee often sounded like a used car salesman as he sold appearance rather than performance.  To the public, Yee sold the flat black of a plastic rifle as being “a military style weapon”.  Yee knew better.  To the FBI buyer, Senator Yee was precise when he asked about and then guaranteed delivery of fully automatic weapons along with shoulder fired missiles.

Yee sold public safety to the news media while seeking to privately profit from public violence.  Stated simply, Yee sought to disarm ordinary citizens while he funneled guns to the hands of criminals.

MMSenator Yee is not the first corrupt politician to profit from gun regulation. In fact, this scam dates back to the corrupt New York legislator Tim Sullivan in the early 1900s and continues with the Obama Administration’s Operation Fast and Furious in 2008.  Yee’s activities were part of a long term plan for imbedded political corruption that rivals the famously corrupt organizations in Chicago and New York.

Senator Yee was termed out of office and was running for Secretary of State.  The FBI agent told Yee that the agent’s family in New Jersey wanted to support Yee’s bid for Secretary of State, to which Yee responded, “I can be of help to you for 10 months or I can be of help to you for eight years.  I think eight years is a lot better than 10 months.”  Yee issued a prophetic press release when he started his run for Secretary of State.  Yee said he will “expand access to the ballot box.”  We didn’t know Senator Yee meant gun money would displace the votes of California citizens.


Senator Yee is to blame for these criminal actions, and so are others.  Yee’s San Francisco district is deeply in debt.  Gun control has failed over and over.  Despite those facts, the news media will continue to champion big government and gun control.  Corrupt politicians will continue to play the willing media like a musical instrument and tell them what they want to hear.

California citizens are guilty too. Too many California voters will continue to support corrupt politicians who make expensive promises using other people’s money.  That is particularly true of Senator Yee’s district of San Francisco.  California voters will soon forget that some of those political donations passed through criminal hands.

Yee is the third Democrat California legislator indicted in the last 18 months.

    No surprise here. Remember that Sen. Boxer famously carried around a .32 semi-auto in her PURSE while campaigning for the removal of guns from private ownership.

      Senator Feinstein had her own California Concealed Carry permit when she was a local official. Was she any more “threatened” than anyone else in SanFrancisco, I doubt t. DId she however, have the necessary “drag”, obviously so.

    Just a quick question, how can it be the Obama administration’s Fast and Furious operation in 2006 when Obama did not take office until 2008? Little lost on that.

      Has to be a typo. Easy to do.

      Some people still make the mistake of thinking that F&F was a continuation of the Wide Receiver program that ran under Bush. This is incorrect as there were major differences between the programs, the major ones being that the Mexican government was breifed in on WR but not on F&F and that the guns were actually tracked in WR (it was ended when some were lost track of) while that was never the case in F&F.

    Did this Elected Thing serve 5 minutes in jail? Pardon me for asking a seemingly dumb question.

      Sentenced to 5 years, probably won’t serve all of it, although there is no parole in federal cases.

    Sentenced to 5 years, one wonders as to what Mr. Ordinary, being convicted of the same transgressions would be looking at? By the way, will he serve his sentence at some federal farm club or in less pleasant confinement?
