Outlaw X to increase revenue in the illegal distribution of X.

A plan so simple, how could it ever fail?

His partner in crime is called "Shrimp Boy"... which pretty much inclines the whole operation to failure, and comedy.

It really gets to the point where anyone very strongly against something is bound to be secretly embroiled in it.

It's some weird mindset about hiding in plain sight or something.

"He was an award-winning gun control advocate. ...

Yee has been a vocal advocate for gun control. In 2006, 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 May 2012, together with Kevin de León, Yee proposed legislation to ban any semi-auto rifle that had a 'conversion kit' that makes the rifle a 'fixed magazine rifle.'"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leland_Yee#Gun_control

"(The agent) asked about shoulder fired automatic weapons. Senator Yee responded by saying the automatic weapons are the equivalent to the 'M16' Automatic Service Weapon ... (The agent) asked about the availability of shoulder fire missiles or rockets. Senator Yee responded 'I told him about the rockets and things like that.'"

automatic weapons, missiles, and rockets -- good

violent video games and semi-automatic handguns -- bad

Well that started out nice and funny, and then just turned into... I don't know what. It reads like a really, really bad movie. And just gets funnier, cos it's not a movie.

surprise

So, two questions - what are his chances of getting away with it (for assorted values of getting away with it), and how the hell do these people think they'll not get caught? Is it some sort of ego thing?

Those guys are in for a shock next time they search the Internet for their organization's promotional materials.

Apparently they learned nothing from the North Yemen Militant Political Hostage Organization.

Or the Lebanese Extremist Sympathizers Building Islamic Aligned Nations.
