Possession of a 30 round magazine in Washington DC is a crime. It doesn’t matter why you are in possession of it. Just having it gets you in big trouble. David Gregory, therefore, should be in big trouble.
While attacking National Rifle Association President Wayne La Pierre on NBC’s Meet the Press this weekend, host David Gregory actually violated gun laws in the city where he broadcasts.
During the show, Gregory waved around a 30-round magazine for what he claimed is an AR-15 rifle. But since Meet the Press is taped in NBC’s Washington D.C. studios this is actually a violation of the city’s strict gun laws.
Washington D.C. specifically bans the very ammunition magazine that Gregory bandied about during his discussion.
It is a stupid law but Gregory is a huge proponent of stupid laws. I vote this stupid law be enforced to a stupid extreme.
It won’t be enforced at all, however. By now it has been disabled, they will produce a disabled magazine and that will be that. Gregory is part of the cognitive elite that helped reelect Obama. He isn’t going to even be charged.
That’s part of the beauty of being part of the nomenklatura in Moscow on the Potomac; you are immune from being prosecuted when you violate the stupid laws you support.
