The liberal MSM double standard … why isn’t David Gregory being charged with violating DC gun laws?
As reports at The Patriot Perspective, yesterday during NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ whose studios are located in Washington, DC, host David Gregory decided to go on his liberal anti-Second Amendment rant about a ban on guns and high capacity magazines by playing show and tell by waiving around a high capacity magazine. Watch the following video at Mediaite at the 9:46 mark to see Gregory in possession of a high capacity magazine. Just one little problem, did he violate DC gun laws in the process and if so, why wasn’t he arrested for doing so? It would appear Gregory did. The penalty for to possess, sell or transfer any “large capacity ammunition feeding device.” A person guilty of this charge can be sentenced to a maximum fine of $1000 and/or up to a year imprisonment – D.C. Criminal Code 7-2506.01.
(b) No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The term large capacity ammunition feeding device shall not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition..”
As stated by Doug Ross, “the incident was all part of David Gregory’s blatant advocacy journalism, designed to advance the totalitarian and unconstitutional agenda of restricting access to firearms by law-abiding citizens.” Just curious, will NBC and the liberal media be just as willing to take on the ACLU and privacy laws to del with those that are mentally ill and a danger to society?
UPDATE I: In typical liberal hypocrisy, as reported at Michele Malkin, David Gregory mocked NRA Wayne LaPierre’s idea for armed security in schools as you read this about where the Meet the Press host Gregory sends his own kids to school.
