PA Game Commission Votes AGAINST Semi-Automatic Hunting

Today, after previously voting unanimously to preliminarily approve hunting of game with semi-automatic firearms, the Pennsylvania Game Commission voted against semi-automatic hunting for big game in violation of the Second Amendment and in direct betrayal of gun owners.

Please reach out to the Game Commission and let them know your thoughts on their encroachment of your inalienable rights.

Gun Control Proponent Leland Yee Charged With Brokering Arms Deals for Automatic Weapons and Missiles.

We told you earlier we would bring you an update when Leland Yee’s Arrest Affidavit was released, well it was released a little while ago, and it is far more than the base corruption and bribery reported earlier. It appears that Yee was also brokering major arms deals. The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that:

The allegations against State Sen. Leland Yee were outlined in an FBI affidavit in support of a criminal complaint. The affidavit accuses Yee of conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms.

…..

Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder fired automatic weapons and missiles, and took him through the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the United States, according to the affidavit by FBI Special Agent Emmanuel V. Pascua.

As we said earlier, we are strong proponents of presenting primary sources to our readers: here is a link to the arrest affidavit that the San Francisco Gate is hosting. Along with Wire Fraud charges Leland Yee is being charged with violations of Title 18, United States Code, Section 371, 922(a)(1) and 922(l) (Conspiracy to Deal Firearms Without a Licence and to Illegally Import Firearms). A discussion of the evidence related to this begins on page 83. Page 84 has a passage where Lee is stated to have asked the undercover agent whether he wanted automatic weapons as opposed to semi-automatic firearms.

Here is an except from the arrest affidavit detailing that passage.

We will continue to bring you more updates as they are released.

Leland Lee is well known for his “crusade” to ban bullet buttons* and “violent video games”**, and he’s also now becoming well known for being arrested for bribery and corruption and possible ties to the triads.

ABC 7 in San Francisco reported

Sources confirm to ABC7 News that State Senator Leland Yee has been arrested on public corruption charges.

 

Yee was transported in handcuffs by authorities to the Federal Building in San Francisco.

 

A series of search warrants are being executed by the FBI across the Bay Area this morning. ABC7 News has learned they are making numerous arrests in a widespread sweep involving suspected gang members.

This is a breaking story and as soon as we get access to any primary sources such as copies of the warrants or any indictments, we’ll add links to them here.

*A bullet button is device which makes many modern semi-automatic sporting rifles compliant under California law, as the firearm is judged to no longer have a detachable magazine under California law. This ensures that the firearm is not subject to bans based on certain cosmetic features under California’s onerous (as shown in this CalGuns Flowchart) “Assault Weapon” laws.

**The law, AB1179 which was championed by Lee, was ruled unconstitutional as a violation of the 1st Amendment by the United States Supreme Court in 2010’s Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association.
