For the record, I am totally pro 2A, but an empty mag used as a prop is hardly worthy of discussion. I’d feel the same if the mag was loaded, as long as the firearm wasn’t in the room. DC’s gun laws may be silly, but getting upset over this is even worse. Yes I hate all the gun-grabbers crawling out of the woodwork, but this story is a joke.
Trying to make something out of nothing is a libtard tactic, and one’s reduces credibility.
I’m sure David Gregory and his fellow liberals at NBC appreciate your show of support.
So, you don't believe in holding Democrats to their own standards? Interesting....
It’s not nothing. These guys obviously know the law in DC, and on national TV, they deliberately violated it, on purpose, because of who they are, they believed they could get away with it.
They are liberal elites and they don’t believe the gun laws that the rest of us would be jailed for violating, apply to them.
THAT is why people are calling on this putz to be prosecuted.
When libtards do stuff like this they believe they are untouchable and don’t have to live under the same laws THEY ACTIVELY FORCE on the rest of us.
That is reason enough to demand prosecution of the liberals who knowingly violate laws you or I would have no mercy from being spared prosecution on.
If Wayne LaPierre appeared on this show, and used an empty 30 round AR-15 mag as a personal prop, there would be no question he would be charged. But Wayne would never do anything that stupid, for one, and while not agreeing with the DC law, would not deliberately violate it just to have something to have in his hands during an interview. If a visual was needed he could bring his own graphic or a file photo of a magazine could be displayed.
Here in the People's Republik of Kalifornia I am subject to about seventy pages of guns laws, most of them just as stupid and unConstitutional as the law apparently broken by Gregory.
What do you think would happen to me if I imported such a magazine into Kalifornia? Would I just be told that it was no big deal and to go on my way?
Kalifornia maintains a list of handguns that are legal to buy new. In one case, I believe, simply changing the color of the firearm, because that is a different model number, renders the handgun illegal to buy.
I own a semi-automatic rifle which is legal to own simply because of the name on the receiver. If the name was "Bushmaster", my gun would be illegal to own.
The penalties for violating these laws are not typically like getting a traffic ticket. Many are felonies and carry heavy fines and prison time along with lifetime loss of Second Amendment rights.
I would be delighted to see Gregory and NBC charged, see them make an emergency appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, and have the court summarily declare the D.C. ban unConstitutional under the Second Amendment. That would solve all our problems, wouldn't it? If such a thing happened, I would send a Thank You card to Gregory.
But if Gregory isn't charged, then he has no standing to challenge this tyrannical law and there is no way that the Supreme Court would take up the matter.
Perhaps that is the whole point of this discussion.

David Gregory is pushing for more gun laws. How about enforcing the gun laws on the books first? David Gregory wants to put Americans in jail for violating gun laws, when he himself is violating the gun law.
And David Gregory knowingly violated the law. Of course it's a stupid law, but Gregory wants more of the stupidity that's destroying people's lives. You first, Mr. Gregory. Trying to make something out of nothing is a libtard tactic, and ones reduces credibility.

I disagree. I think we need to do more of this. We should put 500 people on his front lawn asking for his immediate resignation and holding up signs on why rich liberal white guys get away with this kind of stuff.
I would alinsky him to the max.
