FPC’s de León Watch: The Best of California Senator Kevin de Leόn

California Senator Kevin de Leόn (D-Los Angeles, 22nd Senate District) is hilarious. He’s also a relentless anti-gun politician, but for all of the headaches and heartburn he sure does provide us with hours of entertainment. We’ll start off this blog post — which you should definitely bookmark for those times you need a laugh — with a little joke: How many “30 magazine clips” does it take to change a lightbulb? We have no idea, but you can count on Sen. de Leόn to let us know in his next gun control press conference!

We’ll keep this post updated with the best and latest Senate pro Tem-apparent de León laughs, memes, and other self-inflicted hilarity. If you have a funny Sen. de León image or video you don’t see here, email it (or a link) to us at funny@firearmspolicy.org and we’ll post it here. Enjoy!

    I have not read all the comments here, so I apologize if someone has pointed this out already, but did you notice the tall guy in civvies standing behind the genius roll his eyes as Sen. de Leon was spouting his natural organic fertilizer?

  7. MontieR January 22, 2014 at 10:50 am #

    Is there some unspoken law that you have to be a certifiable idiot to run for office in California.

  8. flybum@comcast.net January 22, 2014 at 11:41 am #

    Politicians like de Leon are using sensationalism to attempt to disarm the population. Can you blame him? If I were a politician with a 5% approval rating I would be worried about the general population too. Would he not be better off addressing the real problems of this state? Has there ever been an instance where a semi-automatic assault weapon without a serial number has been used in a crime? People like him are the reason stores like Cabellas, one of the finest sporting goods stores in the country, will not locate in California. On two different occasions, their managers have told me that they will not locate in California because of all of the “gun-grabbing” liberals.

    May I suggest the morons who elect these bigger morons check and see if their mothers had any children that lived. Save America, spay liberals as you can’t fix stupid!

    This guy is an idiot!

  14. Frank J. Austin January 21, 2014 at 9:52 pm #

    enough of them to keep him in office…

  15. Allen January 21, 2014 at 10:22 pm #

    I have to live in this sorry excuse for a state, and can’t find a single person who votes for a$$-clowns like this. Our county is one of 3 trying to secede from California and create a new state because of these kinds of morons and the idiots in the major metro areas who keep putting them in office!

  16. killshot308 January 21, 2014 at 10:26 pm #

    Better yet, print your note and put a stamp on it and drop it in the mail. Flood his mailbox. Somebody in his office has to go through it all, because you never know, there could be campaign contributions in that pile of mail. Not saying that this guy has a ton of followers, just that they’re only interest in going through the mail is cashing the occasional check. Give them some work to do feeding the paper recycle bin.

  17. killshot308 January 21, 2014 at 10:29 pm #

    de Leon’s picture needs to go in the dictionary next to the definition of “Libtard”.

  18. Herman Vogel January 22, 2014 at 4:45 am #

    Agreed, HOWEVER, as long as they support the Homosexual Community at the expense of everyone else,,,they have no fear of losing. Same with the Welfare leaches,,,in a phase…Voting Farms. sad, huh

  19. canmandad January 22, 2014 at 6:20 am #

    Although I don’t actually know his race, DeLeon is actually a french name not latino (Mexican) or Hispanic (Spain), Kinda strange my wife and in-laws are french and they at least hace some common sense, Unlike DeLeon. hell unlike any liberal.

  20. James Andrews January 22, 2014 at 6:23 am #

    All I know is that our safety is entirely dependent on the quilities of our communites, period. I live in a good state, where we have plenty of gun laws, but they are not too strict, like in other Nazi like states. The people are peaceful, and we have almost no gun violence whatsoever. It’s all about your communities. Raising your kids right, and with real moral convictions about right and wrong, respect for others, helping out your family, neighbors, elderly, etc. The cities and states with the gangs and high gun violence are where the communities have gomne to hell. Poor parenting, lack of mentorship, rampant drug issues, etc. They’re the ones with all of the trouble. It isn’t the guns; the roots of their trouble and violence go much deeper than just the guns. We have a lot of gun owners in my state, and a lot of hunters, and very little gun violence. And really no gang trouble! It’s almost always domestic violence, or drug related. And we all know that as much as we try, we will never completely get rid of either. But we can keep it in check, and strive to stop it.

    Allen I live part time in CA – tell me what part is still trying to secede from Liberal CA? I might consider staying in CA if one could escape from these loons.

    I wish I lived in your county! Maybe someday I will.

    The Glenn County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted today to join the State of Jefferson movement and begin the process of seceding from the state of California.

    According to the declaration and petition filed with and eventually passed by the Board of Supervisors, the county felt state and federal agencies have denied the county and “its businesses, and its citizens, access to our most abundant natural resources, and fishing grounds, causing untold harm to our economy, as well as to our health and public safety…”

    The petition also cited “sue and settle” practices by state and federal agencies and lack of legislative representation on the state and federal levels as further reason to begin its withdrawal from California. The county wishes to form a new state “which represents the needs, provides opportunity, and protects the rights, liberties, public health, and safety of the people of a new State of Jefferson.”

    The Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to secede from California on September 3, 2013 and Modoc County joined the secession movement 21 days later on September 24, 2013.

  24. KH1776 January 22, 2014 at 9:10 am #

    I agree with you, but unfortunately any secession requires approval from the U.S. Congress…which unfortunately would likely never happen.

  25. MrDazzling January 22, 2014 at 2:55 pm #

    I’ve watched this intellect for years and everytime he opens his mouth he shoots himself in the other foot!

  26. Archangel January 23, 2014 at 9:38 pm #

    You got that right. What a moron. This guy only proves he knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about an AR-15.
    30 caliber?
    Since when did the poodleshooter .223 / 5.56 AR-15 become classified as a “30 caliber”?
    .223 means something. It means .223 caliber. Basically it’s a souped up 22 round.
    In the longer version of DeLeon’s foolish diatribe, he goes on to say that an “AR-15 is an “automatic” SNIPER RIFLE used in Afghanistan” LMAO..
    Since when did an AR-15 become an Automatic Weapon or a Sniper Rifle?
    When did our Military Snipers and the DOD conclude that a gun with an effective range of only 350-400 yrds could be an adequate tool for Sniper kill shots? LMAO.
    A common deer rifle (243, 270, 308 or 30-06) would clearly make a better “sniper rifle” than an AR-15.
    And To leave no doubts of his complete ignorance, he proves to be yet another LIBTARD who doesn’t know the difference between a mag and a clip, using the term interchangably, and spewing absurd bullshit about how fast a person can discharge bullets out of a semi-auto rifle.
    This should not be left go. Someone with REAL credibility…Someone recognized as an EXPERT in firearms needs to set the record straight, debate this guy in the same public forum, to completely dispel all of the lies and discredit his entire argument for this rediculous bill..

  27. MrDazzling January 22, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    God help us, but she has been grooming her boy blunder Newsome for the job.

  28. UpChuck.Liberals January 22, 2014 at 3:42 pm #

    But Gavin want’s to be Govenor. If we think that Brown is bad then were in some serious trouble with Gavin.

  29. MrDazzling January 22, 2014 at 4:21 pm #

    Amen – most people are unaware his policies on illegals got at least to families killed under his watch. He and Brown are cut from the same… well you know!

  30. WakeUpAmericans January 24, 2014 at 4:31 am #

    @canmanded, Deleon is a Latino name as well and this jerk is a Latino.

  31. Gary Shick January 24, 2014 at 6:30 pm #

    Very well said…….Such a beautiful state with such Ugly minded people. sad..

  32. canmandad January 24, 2014 at 9:51 pm #

    I have never hear of DeLeon as a Latino Name, If so I stand corrected, But at least we agree he is an idiot and a jerk. as some one once told me. It better to keep quiet and let them think your an idiot democrat than it is to open your mouth and prove them right. He has definitely proven both are correct.

  33. disqus_CO09vEC1dd January 24, 2014 at 11:33 pm #

    The maximum effective range of the M-16A2 Service Rifle is 550 meters, significantly farther than 400 yards. As Marines we shoot the M-16 regularly at 500 meters.

  34. WakeUpAmericans January 25, 2014 at 2:54 am #

    @ canmaned, Taken from Wikipedia:

    De León or de León or De Leon is a Spanish surname, indicating an ultimate family origin in the Kingdom of León or the later Province of Leon. The name may refer to:

    Alonso De León (c. 1639–1691), Spanish explorer and governor
    Antonio de León Pinelo (1589–1675), Spanish attorney, judge, and historian
    Aracelli de León (1951–1999), Latin American voice actress

    But as you said we do agree on what this man is and this so called Politician needs to go back to where ever he came from! The Democrats are destroying California and I hope people in our state of California understand it is time to vote out these traitors or we will end up like Detroit! Take care canmaned!

  35. WakeUpAmericans January 25, 2014 at 3:04 am #

    I think I am going to mail him a copy of The Constitution and the Bill of Rights and highlight key areas to educate Mr De leon! I suggest we all do this and maybe he just might read what he should already know!

  36. Herman Vogel January 25, 2014 at 3:49 am #

    I would love to see him confronted by a professor from Hillsdale college. The Constitution and knowing it is a prerequisite to graduating. But like do same with the Bamster,,I don’t think he would know what the professor was talking about,,,it would be a Foreign Language.

  37. Archangel January 25, 2014 at 8:43 am #

    >> “As Marines we shoot the M-16 regularly at 500 meters”.

    Maybe in the “Mark 12″ version….18 or 20 inch barrel, with a 77 grain bullet.

    Examine the statistical ballistics of 5.56 x45. 500 meters is nearly IMPOSSIBLE. The bullet drop is significant after 400 yrds.
    The Mark 12 (according to the Marine Corp themselves) has “an effective range of 550 YARDS” not Meters…and that is the long barrel version, NOT The Carbine.

    The bigger point here was to reject the notion that an AR-15 Carbine (as shown in the video OR it’s select-fire variant used by the military) is ALMOST NEVER used as a “SNIPER RIFLE” which was DeLeon’s fallacious statement.
    Instead the Army Navy or Marines will use something in 7.62×51 for a mid-range Sniper rifle, OR a 338 Lapua (MRAD) OR a 50caliber (TAC-50, M-107 Barrett) for longer range Sniper shots

  38. Archangel January 25, 2014 at 9:24 am #

    I thought the Marine Corp Retired the M-16A2 in favor or the M-16-A4 at this point?? (amongst other variants, ie HK416, etc)
