Hahahahahaha!

So the douchebag who led crusades against violent video games (and GTA in particular) is busted for illegal gun running and selling. That's just too perfect.

Not just video games, he was always very active in wanting to take away your actual rights as a citizen.  The guy's an ass clown of the highest order.

The farkhead wanted to take away guns from average citizens (and actually succeeded in some respects).  Hope he and his family die of ass cancer....

I've noticed that the staunchest pro-gun control congress critters mean to exempt themselves and their protective details from any gun control legislation.

Feinstein and her Husband had a CCWs; Gabby Gifford's husband bought a completely legal Ar and made a show of "turning it in" when the media found out and a few others that never made the 9 pm news.

Funny how this has to be picked up by PM since the MSM initially reports it and then lets the story sloowwwwly fade away.

In our defense, only MOST of the democrats we elect are corrupt criminals. So we've got that going for us, which is nice.

You know what a CCW is, right? A conceal carry license. That means Feinstein was packing a concealed pistol. I ask you, is that consistent with her message about gun control; her carting around a loaded, concealed firearm that is?

And, what do you think the Secret Service is armed with, bananas?

/ hypocracy stinks.
 
2014-04-02 05:47:09 PM  
Well yes,  CNN is not about to give any coverage to a California State Democrat Senator that is anti gun but is also working with gun running Asian gangs in his state.

A criminal Dem gun runner is not something that most media people will give 3 minutes to.

CNN is now covering the 9,000 hour on a plane that disappeared and a story on a gay teacher who raises orchids.

CCN the stupid network.

I have a S&W 945, and it hasn't had a single problem, NONE. I even have the night sights on it, but would like something a little smaller, for the varmints in the area. You don't always need a hand cannon, but it sure feels nice.

He's talking about slide 5, not the first one.

For myself, I want one of those Tavor's so bad I can taste it.  No real use for it, but it'd be nice during the start of the Zombie Apocalypse.  Until I ran out of ammo.

There have also been reports over the years that Dianne Feinstein got herself deputized as a special deputy US Marshal, allowing her to carry all over the country regardless of local carry laws, and also allowing her to carry in places where civilians (even with CCW permits) cannot.
 
2014-04-02 06:09:51 PM  
Saying that Senator Yee's arrest in any way impugns the rational and reasonable movement to ban popular and not commonly criminally misused sporting rifles based upon arbitrary characteristics is akin to saying that anti-gay lawmakers being caught in hotel rooms with male escorts in some way discredits the movement to protect traditional marriage.

Our local NPR station here in San Diego was covering the hijinks in the CA state senate this morning.  Apparently there's three Dem assholes that are getting their butts censured by the CA legislature, including this SF dipwad.  It's so bad the CA Dem party is cancelling some golf tournament fundraiser they were having this weekend so they could chew on these treasonous f*cks a little more.

I hope Yee spends a nice toasty 15 to 20 in Pelican Bay.

I haven't heard that one; but, she is a congress critter with a lot of influence with the Democratic block. Who's to say that she didn't do a deal with the Marshal service for extra funding?

CNN says they didn't cover Yee because he is a state level pol. Which is almost acceptable had they not taken part in the recent Wendy Davis bukkake during her filibuster.

They're both news. One just fits a particular worldview better.

I love how old-school the corruption is.  Chinese tongs, the Mafia connection in New Jersey, the international arms smuggling, even down to the chauffeur of the tong Dragonmaster who "knows a guy" who has a pot grow.

I can't wait to see the movie.  Maybe they'll make it the plot of GTA VI: San Fierro Under Fire.  They need a new title for next-gen consoles, right?

I'd bet money that he will show up in a future DLC for GTA V. Probably have to take out a corrupt senator named Yeland Lee. But there's a twist! You can't shoot or kill him, but must uncover evidence to have him arrested for gun smuggling, just to rub it in his face that there are peaceful means to solve problems in the GTAverse.

He was a very active anti-gun nut too. Of course like most rich liberals, he is only against you having guns. Not he or his army.

I would have went with Yeyand Lee.

With an order of flied lice.

I like the idea though.

Only thing that would make this story perfect is if there was a robbery attempt at Yee's place when this story broke.

Would a substantial quantity of gold have been stolen during the robbery?

Are you farking  joking?  The MSM barely made mention of this at all, yet we have non-stop coverage of the Fort Hood shooting with the libtards saying before the smoke had cleared and the bodies hauled away, that we needed to ban guns for safety.  So tripe like THAT gets on the news, but we get no mention of a state Senator involved in illegal arms brokering?

I've done it. Granted, it takes a lot of patience and some luck (if the vault's not in the bedroom, you may as well restart), but it's possible.

Not looks so much as the fact of a gun the size of a Walther PPK with the stopping power of .45 ACP gets my mojo workin'.

well since it holds 10+1, the reference to a stacked short girl fits.
