California Senator Who Campaigned Against Guns And Video Game Violence Caught Trafficking Guns

A state senator who campaigned against guns and video game violence has been clocked trying to traffic guns to criminals.

California Senator Leland Yee was charged on Wednesday with conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms, a pretty mental revelation considering he was a big campaigner against guns and violent video games.

He once said: “Gamers have got to just quiet down. Gamers have no credibility in this argument. This is all about their lust for violence and the industry’s lust or money. This is a billion dollar industry. This is all about their self-interest.”

Then presumably he went home, laughed maniacally like the evil genius that he is and sold a bunch of guns to violent criminals. What an insane little operation he had going on — campaigning against the horrors of guns in his public life and selling them in his private life. Such a wildly hypocritical and outrageous move that I think I actually kind of like this dude. He seems more like an awesome movie villain than a real person. Completely unacceptable but you’ve almost got to respect the sheer effrontery of trying to pull it off. Almost.
