Since Sandy Berger destroyed federally protected records,
if not before, the ‘green light’ is on for corruption
and violation of any law when the DNC wants it.
Any law and destruction of any federal record.

The same ATF that dreamed up the Fast & Furious gun running operation?

Yes, that ATF. Funny how the ATF person didn't ask David Gregory where he got the illegal 30 round magazine.

This is a pretty clear example of media arrogance.

There is no question that Gregory could have waived around a picture of a high-capacity gun magazine or shown a video of one and he would have had no problems whatsoever. But he wanted a prop and decided that laws (even laws he supports) only apply to the little people and not to the intelligentsia class in the MSM.

That excerpt does not say NBC got permission from ATF. It says they got permission from MPD. Your title is 180 degrees out of phase with the excerpt.

Considering that there’s no federal ban on 30 round magazines, but there is a local law, getting permission (?) from the Feds only means the Feds won’t prosecute you for a law that doesn’t exist. It doesn’t mean local law can’t prosecute you for a law that does.

I’m not a lawyer or anything, but anyone with a passing familiarity of American law should realize this. It’s like Washington state legalizing marijuana. That’s fine for the local choom gang to know the state law enforcement will leave them alone, but the DEA can still arrest their asses.

Name. We need a name. Who gave permission to break the law without consequence? Who's going to lose his/her job because of this?
(Does that mean if I say I was given permission to rob a bank I'm off the hook?)

This sounds to me like a "You keep covering my back and I'll cover yours" from someone in the democrat party.
Go ahead. Prove me wrong. What other type of lawbreaker would get a pass from the ATF for no reason?

Sounds like opinion shopping.

Under the DC gun laws, simple possession can be prosecuted as a felony.

So, go get him, DC police!

Meet the Press Liars..
lets see it in writing...and question authority, who has the authority to give permission to break a law, the police or prosecutor? immunity? to whom? what permission did they give? did the MPD or ATF provide the magazine? plot thickens

It’s interesting that MTP is claiming the ATF gave them permission to violate Washington DC law. And it will be very interesting to find out who procured the 30-round magazine for David Gregory. Was the the MPD? The ATF? Or did Gregory’s staffer buy it in Virginia and knowingly transport it illegally to DC?

This point is being missed:

If Gregory could get hold of an illegal piece of equipment, what's to stop a criminal if they pass more laws?

I think it's great we have a member of MSM proving this point on behalf of the NRA.

It would be great to find out that David Gregory sent a staffer across state lines to procure the magazine.

This story is absurd. The DCPD doesn’t need permission from the ATF to enforce or not enforce local DC laws and the ATF doesn’t have the authority to tell the DCPD how or whether to enforce local DC laws. This is nothing more than a cooked up excuse to let everyone, Gregory (punk) and the DCPD, off the hook.

The obvious scenario is a phone call from Barry to Eric, after the fact, saying he’s got to provide cover, after all the MSM is pushing his agenda.

My take on this stupid controversy is that MTP has been losing viewers and it is nothing more than a device to attract attention to their program.

from Drudge, as of 4:50pm today, "NBC was told by the Washington police that it was “not permissible” to show a high-capacity gun magazine on air before Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” according to a statement Wednesday from the cops."

Where is the exception in the law for this?

The police cannot decide who can obey the law and who cannot!

This is asinine! (AND ILLEGAL!)

ATF is a federal arm of the government.

The law Gregory broke was a D.C. Law.

The illegal law is one of many put forth by libby states that infringes on our unalienable rights, and should be ignored discreetly in such non permissive areas and should be challenged overtly in public forums.

Yeah, TMZ is reliable/ sarc. Lets see it in writing, signed off by the ATF.

I’ve always said, a verbal agreement is only as good as the paper it’s printed on. And signed.

ATF is the organization that broke the law, smuggled guns to Mexico drug cartels.

Ofcourse, they would tell a leftist it’s okay for him to violate the DC law.

The law only applies to people outside the party. We are Chi-coms now.

Only an investigative Committee from the House of Representatives can get to the bottom of this possibly illegal and terrorist affront to the peace loving American People. OMG, children could have seen this on TV.
This is an opportunity for Mr. Boehner to keep his Speaker position.
