David Gregory Under Police Investigation Over Gun Magazine On 'Meet The Press'
 
I found this to be hilarious, and I hope he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

David Gregory Under Police Investigation Over Gun Magazine On 'Meet The Press'

Posted: 12/26/2012 9:16 am EST | Updated: 12/26/2012 1:41 pm EST


UPDATE: NBC News had requested and was denied permission to use a high capacity magazine on "Meet the Press." Legal Insurrection's William A. Jacobson looked into an email allegedly from the Metropolitan Police Department which said that the network contacted the police before the segment. The MPD's Aziz Alali confirmed it, telling Jacobson:

"NBC contacted the Metropolitan Police Department inquiring if they could utilize a high capacity magazine for this segment. NBC was informed that that possession of a high capacity magazine is not permissible and the request was denied."

EARLIER: David Gregory is being investigated by police over the gun magazine that he showed on Sunday's "Meet the Press."

Gregory held up what appeared to be a 30-round gun magazine during his contentious interview with the NRA's Wayne LaPierre. He was asking LaPierre whether fewer victims would have died in the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School if the gunman had not had access to so many bullets.

Araz Alali, police officer and spokesman, confirmed to Politico on Tuesday that the Metropolitan Police Department is looking into “The 'Meet the Press,' David Gregory incident.” "There are D.C. code violations, D.C. code restrictions on guns, ammunition. We are investigating this matter. Beyond the scope of that, I can’t comment any further," he said.

The code in question says, “No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm," and has been mentioned by numerous conservatives making the argument against Gregory.

CORRECTION: The headline has been updated to say that Gregory was holding a gun magazine, not a clip, on "Meet the Press.

Best case scenario:

He's prosecuted, NBC defends him and accidentally gets law overturned. LMAO

That's horribly irresponsible of him. What if someone grabbed that magazine and used it to slaughter a room full of kindergarteners?

Fish 12-26-2012 02:37 PM

Pretty lucky that dangerous magazine didn't jump up and kill anyone.

I know, right? Nothing makes a more effective case for stricter gun laws than breaking existing gun laws. Oh wait...

That would be f'n hilarious if that happened.

Won't happen though.

I do wish that he would've been arrested on the show and spent Christmas in jail.

I guess it isn't a very effective ban.

Its hilarious that an anti-gun liberal has broken more gun laws than any pro-gun conservative on this board. Even though he broke the law on national tv, I'll bet that he doesn't get charged with anything.

If they ban high capacity magazines, only criminals and David Gregory will have them. LMAO

It is hard to see how Gregory would not be found guilty of breaking DC's code.
The penalty is up to a $1,000.00 fine and up to 1 year in prison. He would also be required to register as a Gun Offender.

His remarks that "this is a 30 round magazine" are not hearsay and are definitely usable against him in court.

Penalties: DC ST § 7-2507.06
Magazine Ban: DC ST § 7-2506.01
Gun Offender Registry: DC ST § 7-2508.01

Dammit, we're the liberal media and if showing a high capacity magazine live on air is what it takes, we'll do it...'cause think of the children.

I'm sure that having that actual magazine there and not a photo made all the difference...how stupid.

So if a police officer confiscates an illegal fully automatic weapon should he then be arrested for possessing it, and then should that continue until there are no police officers left, like some sort of half assed Inception sequel?
