Washington Metropolitan Police Department is investigating whether NBCs David Gregory violated D.C. gun laws when he displayed what he described as a 30 round magazine as part of an interview during Sundays Meet the Press.
So heres a magazine for ammunition that carries 30 bullets. Now isnt it possible that if we got rid of these, if we replaced them and said well, you can only have a magazine that carries five bullets or ten bullets, isnt it just possible that we could reduce the carnage in a situation like Newtown? show moderator Gregory asked Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association.
Possessing a large capacity ammunition device, such as a magazine, is illegal in the District of Columbia if the device holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The code also specifies the large devices are illegal regardless of whether or not they're attached to a firearm. Gregory showed the magazine Sunday without a firearm attached.
NBCs studios, from which Meet the Press is broadcast, are located within city limits. The network did not respond to CNNs requests for comment.
In the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, gun control advocates have been pushing for a limit on high capacity magazines. Such a restriction is one of the items President Barack Obama mentioned last week when he announced an administration effort to curb violence.
I dont believe thats going to make one difference, LaPierre told Gregory during the show.
Several conservative commentators first raised the issue of whether Gregory had broken D.C. law by using the magazine.

Why would conservatives petition for enforcement of an unconstitutional law?
Point out his hypocrisy all you want but if we push for enforcement of an unconstitutional law it diminishes our position.
David Gregory drunk calling in to the Imus morning program Lots of other accounts of this.
More standard fare of breaking the law to fabricate the news. Remember it was NBC which rigged the gas tanks of GM trucks to explode assure the pictures would comport with their fake news.
Interesting that this story is from CNN and one of their own (Don Lemon) admits to illegally purchasing a gun in Colorado.
All's fair in the war against Marxists, including shilling for the left as ringers.
Shilling isn’t my idea of war. Shilling is just kicking the war can down the road. Let’s do it!...but we aren’t/won’t. The marxists have won, we just don’t know it yet.
You may be right (This is an Alinsky tactic) but it will be interesting seeing a newsreader squirm and have to take our side once.
David Gregory Violated DC Gun Laws After Being Denied By DC Police?
The Metropolitan Police Department is in receipt of your e-mail regarding David Gregory segment on Meet the Press. MPD has received numerous e-mails informing us of the segment. NBC contacted MPD inquiring if they could utilize a high capacity magazine for their segment. NBC was informed that possession of a high capacity magazines is not permissible and their request was denied. This matter is currently being investigated. Thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to our attention.

He’ll get the same harsh punishment Sen.Trotter (D-IL) received for his recent gun violations and that Jon Corzine got for stealing millions from his investors.
Now he’s a felon.
Next he’ll complain about the harsh gun laws. lol.
Well shilling is a tactic not a war, but it is shilling as a ringer that I proposed, also a tactic.
In this case it will create a doubly negative perception of the left in the minds of the individuals that are exposed to the information, and that can be considerable, if we do it well.
Shilling is just kicking the war can down the road.
No, it's real time in the now.
The Marxists have won, we just dont know it yet.
I understand why you have come to that conclusion (and it may be accurate), but, long term, the Marxists winning assures their utter and complete defeat.
All Marxist systems that have become completely controlled by Marxists, degenerate into total economic collapse and barbarism.
The only ones to emerge, have given up economic Marxism and the Marxist ruling elite have become tyrannical oligarchs, technically nearly the opposite of Marxism. Marxism is completely abandoned in reality, but may not be abandoned in propaganda.
