After the Liberator was introduced, Californian State Senator and gun-grabber extraordinaire Leland Yee immediately proposed that 3D printers require a background check to purchase, be registered and subject to all the other draconian laws that California places on firearms (no pistol grips on your printer!). Anyway, it looks like Yee might be backing down from his typical authoritarian control freak stance. According to the IB Times, Yee’s press secretary issued this statement: . . .

“While Senator Yee is looking into the matter of guns manufactured by 3D printers, he is not, nor does he intend, to push for the registration of 3D printers. The quote in the CBS piece was referring to the guns lacking background checks and serial numbers.”

Gee, his position sounded pretty clear when it was originally reported. The technology being referenced was 3D printing, not firearms. But I’m guessing Yee has had been taking some significant blowback from the tech industry and maybe even his hippie constituents, and is now trying to walk back his Luddite position.

  1. Leland Yee is Kato to Feinstein’s Green Hornet. Or maybe he’s Kato to Feinstein’s Inspector Clouseau. Sometimes it’s hard to tell.

  2. Sen. Twee is truly as dumb as U.S. Sen. Barb. Boxer, which is to say: If he had one more brain cell, he might make a synapse.

  3. Just when you thought Kalifornia’s choice in leadership couldn’t get any worse…Well.. It dose… This dipsh*t’s going to take the anti- gun “ball” from Difi and run like Forrest if he’s given the chance…

    • What people on this site really need to do is stop writing as if everybody in CA is of the same mind.

  4. I hate Yee, he is an moron and a coward. Not only about this, but about violent games, and how apparently gamers (known as constituents and citizens to most others) have no voice on the issue of whether or not violent games should be banned. He backed down on that issue, too, when he realized what he let slip.

      Yeah, it’s hard to take a guy seriously when he things video games are the sole root of society’s ills.

      • He’s a useful idiot, and not in a good way. I have it on good authority that Yee’s completely mercenary (will do/say whatever seems most likely to get him elected) and the actual anti-gun zealot behind his idiocy is his chief-of-staff.

  5. I live in CA and I hate this ‘effing guy. I seriously want to print a box to stuff his ass in and then drop kick it into orbit.

  6. Just love the poster. Truly excellent. By the way, Yee is term limited out, so now he has to run for a statewide office to stay in politics–which is what he wants to do. He plans to run for California Secretary of State. The field of would-be governors is too thick (Read Gavin Newsome and Kamala Harris, both also San Franciscant’s.)

  7. Just one name in a long list of anti-liberty douchebags who need to take a one way trip to bikini atoll.
