I'd like to say it couldn't happen to a nicer guy, but I'd be lying. California state Senator Leland Yee has been arrested on charges of corruption and bribery. What the Huffington Post (and many of his supporters) fail to mention is that he is also being charged with weapons-trafficking.
The grim irony is that Yee was one of the most vocal, persistent, and extreme proponents of gun control in the California legislature. Bills he sponsored included a ban on "bullet buttons," a bill to mandate so-called safe storage, a bill requiring ammunition sales to be reported to the police, and of course, legislation to kill 3d printing. He also hates video games.
If we add him to the list of anti-gun mayors who've landed themselves in legal trouble…well, it's not really a good year to be hanging around with that bunch.
If you want to parse it, the entire affidavit is here. Scott Lucas has a summary here that is absolutely surreal. Apparently "MILF" stands for Moro Islamic Liberation Front. Now I'm really confused by the internet jokes using that acronym.
