Democrat Senator Arrested for Gun Trafficking

Senator Arrested for Gun Trafficking

DalyHarnishSAN FRANCISCO, CA–As a resident of California (yeah, I’ve already heard it all) and an Oathkeeper, to wake up on the morning of March 26, 2014 and see my news feeds light up with this subject made me smile.  Several Federal and State Law Enforcement Agencies were executing arrest and search warrants at the conclusion of an undercover operation leading to the arrest of California State Senator Leland Yee.  Wait one second–you mean an evil Law Enforcement Agency conducted an operation against a gun grabbing, Democratic State Senator?  Pigs must be flying somewhere for that to happen (pun absolutely intended).  Anyway, I digress.

California State Senator Leland Yee who is well known not only in California, but the rest of the nation as a staunch supporter of violating the 2nd Amendment was arrested on charges of bribery and gun trafficking.  The interesting twist to this story is not only the arrest of Senator Yee, but the other associated arrests or indictments of 25 other men.

The San Jose Mercury News reported that, as part of the operation, several other arrests were made. One significant arrest is that of the “infamous Chinatown gangster, Raymond ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow,” who has a long criminal history dating back to 1978 with his association with the Hong-Kong based Triad Wo Hop To.

Democrats in the state Senate passed a series of firearms bills including de Leon's SB53 which requires ammunition buyers to get a permit, have a background check and pay a fee, and Yee's SB47 which prohibits so-called bullet buttons and other devices that allows swift reloading of ammunition magazines.

As a member of the Wo Hop To gang, Chow was arrested in 1992 for gun trafficking.  According to the sealed affidavit (found here) filed with US District Court, Northern California San Francisco Division on March 24, 2014, Chow is the leader of the Chee Kung Tong Masonic Organization.  This position according to the affidavit has placed Chow in a “supreme authority within the Triad”.

Over the years, Yee has either authored or co-authored bills that would outlaw semi-auto rifles to close the “bullet button loophole.”  Senator Yee, through his office, also announced future plans to introduce legislation to require “yearly” registration and background checks for gun ownership.

What I found interesting as the day progressed was his ties to the Triad, which seem to indicate that his gun-grabbing madness had an apparent method to it.  Guns have been sold on the black market for years. In California, as the amount of guns available to the general public diminishes, the prices of guns on the black market go up.  Senator Yee has been in financial trouble for years. Reading the affidavit, he had contacts with actual foreign arms dealers and knew how to get the guns and missiles (yeah, I read that too), and was in this for the cash.

As time passes, and as we learn more about Yee and how he conspired with criminals to undermine the 2nd Amendment for his financial gain, I wonder if the legislative system will be similar to the judicial system. When an officer has been found to have committed perjury either in court, in police reports, or in the field, the scrutiny over their past cases is brought to bear, sometimes having past cases dismissed. Can we have the courts or the state legislature rule that violations of the 2nd Amendment by Yee are null and void?
