Rob Morse: Are all anti-gun politicians corrupt?
Not all of the anti-gun politicians are corrupt, but many of them certainly are. Here are a few dozen examples to prove my point.
California Senator Leland Yee authored many anti-rights bills that heavily burdened gun owners. Yee was named to the Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll by the anti-rights Brady Campaign. Yee was charged with gun trafficking and public corruption. Yee is now serving time in federal prison.
Dean Skelos was Majority Leader of the New York State Senate. Skelos helped pass the infamous anti-rights New York SAFE Act. This legislation required gun registration and was so burdensome that even the New York police ignored it. Skelos was convicted of federal corruption charges.
Speaker of the New York State Assembly Sheldon Silver also helped pass the New York SAFE Act. The Brady campaign thanked Silver by name for his anti-gun legislation. Silver was arrested, tried and convicted on seven counts of corruption.
President of the California Senate, Kevin De Leon is an active anti-rights legislator. DeLeon is the current author of at least four anti-rights bills this year that limit honest gun owners. Senator De Leon is also named 47 times in a current FBI probe of corruption and bribery.
