Hypocrisy Exposed: Anti-Gun Democrat Arrested for Gunrunning in California

State Senator Leland Yee, an anti-gun Democrat in California, was recently arrested for arms trafficking.

While he railed against the NRA and spouted anti-gun rhetoric to win elections, he was smuggling and reselling $2 million or more in illegal firearms and ammunition.

Perhaps not unsurprisingly, Yee earned an A+ rating from the Brady Campaign in 2006, which is a national gun control group.

Noting the Brady Campaign’s gross error in judgment, the NRA wasted no time putting together a brilliant ad, which they shared on Twitter:

Then, in order to showcase Yee’s blatant hypocrisy, Rush Limbaugh pulled an audio clip of Yee from March 4, 2014, less than month before his arrest. Here is the transcript:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: I want to take you back. This guy [Leland Yee] has been indicted for gunrunning and munitions running, illegal campaign contributions. He had $2 million worth of M16s, $2.5 million worth of bullets, and other things. This guy has ridden on the magic carpet of being anti-Second Amendment every day of his life, to get elected and to hold stature. This is March 4th this year. It’s a Google hangout with KTXL-TV Eyeball News in Sacramento.

This is San Francisco Democrat Leland Yee speaking about guns…

LELAND YEE: Whatever I can do to prevent, uh, the availability of these particular kinds of weapons, you know, I want to do that. There’s just absolutely no reason why anyone would be carrying a military-style weapon, and so that’s the reason why I would, uh, argue that there ought to be a ban on that particular type of weapon.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: While he is selling them, M16s. This guy’s out there gunrunning $2 million worth of the things, and he says that. What phoniness and hypocrisy and so forth.
