Oh wow this is too good:

The same guy who wanted to ban “assault weapons” and bullet buttons in trouble for firearms trafficking and a slew of other crimes.

He was charged with conspiracy to traffic in firearms without a license, and to illegally import firearms as well as a scheme to defraud citizens of honest services.

Yee and Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, leader of the Chee Kung Tong Free Masons in San Francisco, were among 26 defendants charged in the federal criminal complaint Wednesday.

If convicted on all charges, Yee could face more than 100 years in prison. His bail was set at $500,000, unsecured, with the provision that he not leave the state. He was released from custody late Wednesday afternoon.

LOL “Shrimp Boy”, what an epic nickname.  I need to know the story behind that.

Looks like the Brady Campaign fails again. They honored Yee in 2006 for violence prevention.
