A Santa Clara engineer charged with threatening a state lawmaker over a firearms bill pleaded no contest Monday to seven felony and three misdemeanor charges.
Police found 26 guns, thousands of bullets and dozens of high-capacity ammunition magazines at the home of a Santa Clara man charged with threatening to kill a state lawmaker over proposed gun control legislation, according to search warrants unsealed Thursday.
A man charged with threatening a California state senator allegedly boasted in an email that he could use his sniper skills to assassinate the politician while hiding in Sacramento.
A Santa Clara man pleaded not guilty Thursday to possessing assault rifles, explosives and bomb-making materials and to threatening a public official in a dispute over gun control.
A Santa Clara man was charged Friday with possessing assault weapons, explosives and bomb-making materials after the California Highway Patrol tracked an emailed death threat to Democratic state Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco.
The man arrested Tuesday on suspicion of threats against California State Senator Leland Yee had a reputation as a skilled engineer who had previously done work for Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak.
State Sen. Leland Yee said Thursday that a death threat against him that led to the arrest of a Santa Clara County man will not deter him from moving forward with gun control proposals in the Legislature.
