Oath-breaking California politician Kevin De Léon proving he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, and using that to scare the ignorant and the fearful into more infringements on their rights.
“California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) that ‘half his family’ was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions,” former California State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly reported on Breitbart. “De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a ‘Sanctuary State.’”
In addition to defending the practice of obtaining fraudulent documents and dismissing citizen concerns over identity theft, De Léon “expressed outrage” that it should be a deportable offense for foreign nationals – already here illegally – to then falsely obtain a Social Security card.
That’s even though any person who “willfully, knowingly, and with intent to deceive, uses a social security account number, assigned by the Commissioner of Social Security … to establish and maintain records) on the basis of false information furnished to the Commissioner of Social Security by him or by any other person … shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction thereof shall be fined under title 18, United States Code, or imprisoned for not more than five years, or both.”
As is typical, the law is what De Léon and his fellow California “progressives” say it is. Laws they oppose are to be disregarded. In other words, he stands for lawlessness and tyranny.
The thing is, they don’t extend that same entitlement to the non-elite citizenry. They’re too busy stripping them of their rights.
Case in point, De Léon’s oath of office was a mere ceremonial formality. Because where the Second Amendment is concerned, he never saw an infringement he didn’t like, author, co-sponsor or vote for. He’s so against guns, he’s even against guns that don’t exist (except in his ignorant and/or opportunistic mind):
De Léon said he is trying to address a twin threat from what he called “ghost guns” – plastic guns that can slip through metal detectors and unregistered weapons that can fall into the hands of people who are legally prohibited from owning firearms under state law.
He brags about his citizen disarmament “victories.”
This year, he led the charge for the most stringent gun control policies in a generation, leading efforts to approve 11 measures, including his groundbreaking bill, SB 1235, which requires background checks for anyone who buys or sells ammunition.
