I don’t like these guys any more than you do, but prosecuting anyone over this steps way beyond the intent of the law.
To each his own, but I don’t subscribe to the ‘na na na na na na, they do it too’ game. I don’t change what I think is right or wrong just because of the players. The spirit of the DC law as not to arrest people carrying empty mags.
I share your contempt for the leftards, I just don’t agree with blind application of the law because we hate someone.
Sorry Skippy, the DC law is very clear that just having the mag, even without a rifle, is illegal. The liberal puke has to serve some hard time for his crimes.
Again, they did it to show they believe they are above the law. They could have used a picture on a board or from a file photo but they instead chose to do this because they believed they could break the law and because they are elites, not suffer the same fate as any other average person.
When they break the law in your face and they do it on purpose, I don’t want them to get away with it. Because any of us who went on that show would not be able to.
Either we all live under the same stupid laws or we don’t. These are the people who voted for this law, they don’t get to break it just because they’re anti-2nd Amendment. that’s the same logic that only blacks can use certain english words because they’re black.
...I dont like these guys any more than you do, but prosecuting anyone over this steps way beyond the intent of the law......
what is the intent of the law? What was his intent on showing the magazine on TV did he show where he got it from, how much it cost, who else handled it? how hard or easy it was to get? What happens since he is caught will they show him being arrested, searched, his house searched, the studios searched, his dog getting shot by police, booked into jail, his booking photo, his court appearance etc his jail roommate...as Paul Harvey would say and now the rest of the story....
Unlike you, I believe that if Gregory broke the law, then he should be prosecuted. I believe he knew what he was doing and didn’t care. He believes he is above the rest of us. This should be made a big deal off, because he would be making a big deal of it if the shoe was on the other foot.
We have to stop letting them get away with it.
I don't know about you, but I'm tired of these sanctimonious MSM twits preaching how others should live and what laws are good for them, but not having to follow the laws themselves. I relish the prospect of taking a draconian law and using it to bludgeon one of these elites. It leaves the MSM now in the untenable position of justifying why it wants to break laws to which it expects you and I to be held.
Further we now KNOW without doubt they did do this deliberately and with intent to shove it in our faces.
NBC was told by the Washington, D.C., police that it was not permissible to show a high-capacity gun magazine on air before Sundays Meet the Press, according to a statement Wednesday from the cops.
THEY DID IT ANYWAY. The rules do not apply to the fourth branch of government, the liberal elite of the MSM.
Would you like to modify your view on this particular incident, now knowing this information is not just speculation but confirmed fact?
What would happen if someone took the (empty) 30 round magazine to a local DC school to be used as a prop for a ‘show and tell’? What would the ‘spirit of the law’ be?
