Democrat calls for Obama to ban “assault weapon” imports due to Democrat gun-running of “assault weapons”

Instead of banning “assault weapons”, I’d suggest banning progressives instead. After all, you can’t be a Marxist and honestly take an oath to uphold the Constitution.

Rep calls for President to ban “assault weapon” imports due to Yee case

Citing the fact that now-suspended California state Sen. Leland Yee allegedly planned to help bring illegal guns into the country, Rep. Jackie Speier, (D-CA), is calling for the President to ban the import of ‘lethal assault weapons.’

This announcement came Wednesday from the Congresswoman, who represents the same district that Yee hailed from.

“This FBI investigation of Leland Yee reveals how easy it is to import lethal assault weapons that were previously banned,” said Speier in an emailed statement from the Representative’s office to Guns.com.

“This case should be a warning to us all that even the most trusted appearing among us are ready to do real harm,” she said.

Her solution to fix future instances of potential gun running such as in the Yee case? Call on the White House to ban the import of “assault weapons.”

“Since Congress can pass no meaningful gun-control laws, even after the mass killing in Newtown, President Obama should use his pen to slow the import of these weapons, which have no place in our homes,” wrote Speier.

Yee, who up until last month was a member of the Californian State Senate and candidate for Secretary of State, was indicted on March 26 on charges that included numerous counts of public corruption and weapons violations. The latter, according to a 137-page affidavit filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, included helping to broker a deal with Islamic rebels in the Philippines for $ 2 million in military-grade weapons up to and including shoulder-fired missiles. These munitions would be smuggled from the Pacific to a port in New Jersey and were intended for criminal, not civilian use.

Jackie Speier is a useless hack. Her fellow Democrat planned to violate dozens of federal, state and local laws by importing weapons for Islamofascist terrorists. And writing new laws would help… how?
