California gun-control state senator arrested for running guns

California state Senator Leland Yee, who was a gun-control leader, was arrested this week for running guns. Running guns?

Then LA Times

In 2006, Yee was named to the Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll by the Brady Campaign for his efforts that included co-authoring a first-in-the-nation bill to require new semiautomatic handguns be equipped with ballistics identification technology known as micro-stamping.

In 2013, he stood with law enforcement officials and then-Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to propose a bill that would regulate assault weapons.

State Senator Leland Yee appeared in federal court yesterday in shackles, and faced a lengthy indictment for a series of corruption charges, including shocking allegations of gun-running – including shoulder-fired rocket launchers.

Update: This has been a busy week for the Democrats. In Rhode Island the Democrat Speaker of the House Gordon Fox. In North Carolina Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon (D). And in California two more state senators, Sen. Rod Wright (perjury) and then Ron Calderon (bribery). All this week. But the news was busy with NJ Governor Chris Christie and closing lanes on a bridge. Not arrests.
