BUT OF COURSE: Antigun Democratic California State Sen. Leland Yee charged with trafficking firearms in sweeping FBI probe. “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.”

If a politician’s for gun control, it doesn’t prove he’s a crook. But it’s the way to bet. Meanwhile, there’s this comfort for voters: “Yee was prohibited from running for reelection to the Senate this year because of term limits and had launched a campaign to become the state’s top elections officer.”
