Gun Control Senator Sentenced for Trafficking Arms

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?
