After a long legal effort, transparency group and blog win document.
In a nearly forgotten controversy David Gregory, then host of NBCs Meet the Press, appeared on TV waving a 30-round ammunition magazine from the networks District of Columbia studio.
Gregory was aggressively interviewing the National Rifle Associations Wayne LaPierre in December 2012, asking if it might be a good idea to ban the high-capacity magazines.
His prop, ironically, violated a District of Columbia law making it illegal to possess an ammunition magazine - even an empty one - that holds more than 10 bullets.

The odd factor in this episode...because you need to know the location of the studio used....if he’d been 2 miles in either direction...the magazine would have been perfectly legit. Because of this “NO-Brain-Zone” (similar to the Paris NO-Go zone)....he was in violation of DC law. The fact that the law also says you can’t kill anyone within the borders of DC...since 1980....we’ve seen around 6,000 people killed. Laws don’t seem to be effective, if people don’t obey them.
Bet your arse some honest to god cop from DC will be wanting to rectify this. We’re hoping.
And let us not forget that EMPTY CASINGS are also illegal in DC. Punishment is the same—up to $1000 fine and a year in jail.
Prosecute him or take the law off of the books. Equality under the law.
I watched him a few times & I found his looks very simian.
It takes really evil people to pass laws like that, and cops who enforce them are just as bad.
Laws are for sheeple.
He looks like he is trying to overcome a learning disability.
David who ?
That is an insane law.
***”get out of jail free” card just for being a ahem, journalist?***
It happens in the news media all the time. I remember when MSM reporters gave a teen several thousand dollars to buy handguns at a gun show. He did.
Then they made a news report on why we needed background for all guns.
Among the guns bought were new Berettas and several other high dollar guns.
When the program ended, the reporter turned to the camera, holding up these new high dollar firearms and declared, with a smug look on his face, ...”THESE guns will be turned over to the police WHERE THEY WILL BE DESTROYED!”
No one was prosecuted for the “straw man” buys.
Media people are members of the new aristocracy.
I know, now that I am one.
