In recent days, Democratic lawmakers have been arrested and had their office raided by the FBI due to corruption but on Thursday, Human Events reported that another Democrat, a prominent supporter of gun control has been arrested for dealing in black-market arms.

California State Senator Leland Yee, a prominent gun control advocate who has been honored by the Gun Control organization, the Brady Campaign, was arrested on charges that he allegedly participated in a gun smuggling operation and was in partnership with a gangster known as “Shrimp Boy”.

John Hayward of Human Events said, “Yee, 65, was taken into custody in San Francisco on Wednesday and was seen being loaded into an unmarked law enforcement vehicle under an umbrella, his wrists handcuffed behind his back. He was set to be released on $500,000 bond after surrendering his passport.”

“Yee wasn’t just cutting deals to put handguns in the hands of gang-bangers,” said Hayward in reference to the arrest warrant. “The FBI affidavit alleges that he was “associated with a person who was an international arms dealer who was shipping large stockpiles of weapons into a foreign country.” Asked by undercover agents if he could provide shoulder-fired missiles, Yee asked if they wanted some automatic weapons too.”

“Evidently, the San Francisco gang’s connections included Muslim terrorists in the Philippines and Russian gangsters,” said Hayward.

“If this guy wasn’t a Democrat, every screenwriter in Hollywood would be banging out a film script right now. No matter how his day in court works out, I predict Leland Yee will be sentenced to the Memory Hole by his Party and its media operatives, post-haste.”
