NBC’s Gregory Investigated by DC Police for Posessing Illegal High Capacity Gun Magazine

 

Is there a double standard … will NBC’s ’Meet the Press’ David Gregory be charged with possession of an illegal gun magazine as stated by DC gun laws or slapped on the wrist?

Last Sunday NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ David Gregory played show and tell with a high capacity gun magazine while playing anti-Second amendment gin advocate, rather than news journalist. Many questioned how this was possible as to possess such an item in DC was considered illegal by law. According to Breitbart, DC police are looking into the allegations that Gregory violated the DC gun laws during the show.

Hmm, looks like David Gregory is possessing an illegal gun magazine to me.

Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has confirmed that the department is looking into allegations that NBC’s David Gregory violated D.C.’s gun banning laws during a recent taping of Meet the Press.

In a discussion about gun control, host David Gregory brandished a 30-round magazine purportedly for an AR-15 or similar “assault rifle.”  The discussion took place on December 23, during the broadcast of NBC’s Sunday morning political talk show.

DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01, and reads as follows. So what part about “possessing” and “regardless of whether magazine is attached to firearm” can Gregory say he did not violate? The law is the law.

(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.

      This is exactly why gun control laws don’t work. Law abiding citizen comply with the rules … rules that deem them defenceless while the criminal element will acquire weapons illegally and the entitled/the elite will be exempt.

      Why has David Gregory not been arrested? What is there to be investigated? On Sunday’s NBC Meet the Press entire viewing audience was witness to the arrogance/hypocracy of this guy who sends his children to a school protected by armed security.

      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.

      “NBC contacted [the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department] inquiring if they could utilize a high capacity magazine for their segment,” Gwendolyn Crump, a police spokeswoman, said in an email. “NBC was informed that possession of a high capacity magazine is not permissible and their request was denied. This matter is currently being investigated.”
