What Is Left Unsaid

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Gun-control groups are trying to stem the damage as one of the Legislature's most outspoken supporters faces federal gun-trafficking allegations.
Organizers said Thursday that the charges filed this week against Sen. Leland Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, cloud the future of two of his gun control bills. One would prohibit devices that allow for swift reloading of military-style assault weapons, the other calls for a study of safe firearm storage methods. 
Advocates and opponents alike say Yee's arrest may slow the Legislature's consideration of gun restrictions this year.
Paraphrased:  "Rank hypocrisy, criminality, and a complete abuse of public trust will hurt our cause..."

Left unsaid:  "...but that won't stop us."
