The Hypocrisy of Gun Control Advocates

In 2006, (CA State Sen) Yee was named to the Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll by the Brady Campaign for his efforts that included co-authoring a first-in-the-nation bill to require new semiautomatic handguns be equipped with ballistics identification technology known as micro-stamping.
In 2013, he stood with law enforcement officials and then-Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to propose a bill that would regulate assault weapons.

And what is hypocritical about that?  
State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) was charged Wednesday with conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms, part of a sweeping public corruption case outlined by federal prosecutors.
So at the same time he was promoting making firearm ownership as difficult as possible and (likely) getting endorsements from anti-gun groups, he was helping give firearms to violent criminal gangs.

I'm starting to feel like the harder a politician rails against gun rights, the closer you should be checking them out for possible felonies. This is hypocrisy on a grand scale.
