David Gregory Makes Conservative Point About Gun Control Laws, Then Gets Investigated

Washington, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier confirms that her department is investigating allegations that NBC's Meet The Press host David Gregory violated D.C.'s gun laws, which ban high capacity magazines, as he openly held and showed one to his audience during an interview with the National Rifle Association's Vice President Wayne LaPierre on Sunday.

During the interview, Gregory held up a high capacity magazine, that resembles a metal magazine for an AR-15 that holds 30 rounds.

Gregory then says he wants to "widen the argument" and holds up the magazine to LaPierre and says, "So here is a magazine for ammunition that carries 30 bullets. Now isn't it possible, that if we got rid of these, if we replace them with say, if we said you could only have a magazine that carries five bullets or ten bullets. Isn't it just possible that we could reduce the carnage?"

Now friends this is what a friend of mine calls "being tossed a tater with a bow on it." Why do I say that? Because this is the very reason that Gregory is now being investigated by the D.C. police.

According to D.C.'s law which bans high capacity magazines (Official 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.

Gregory is asking for the very thing that is already on the books as law and notice that he is engaging in criminal activity, according to D.C. code, by holding up a magazine that holds three times what D.C. says. I thought these laws were to get these off the streets Mr. Gregory! Isn't that what liberals and gun control freaks tell us? Yet, in what is probably the most strict gun control area in our country, a TV host can brandish an object that is against the law on national television. Does anyone else see that Gregory has just made the point that many like myself have been making for years and that is laws like the one he suggests only puts these items in the hands of the bad guys (in other words criminals, and yes, everyone can see he openly violated the law). Apparently the law didn't stop Mr. Gregory from obtaining and waving around an illegal item in the area he broadcasts from.

With that said, I think the D.C. laws are an attack on Mr. Gregory's Second Amendment rights. Yes, liberals have those too. However, he did violate the law and since he is one advocating for such laws, while at the same time violating them, then I think he deserves to get the fullest punishment for that violation based strictly on his own hypocrisy.

So just what would that penalty be? According to Koehler Law, a D.C. based law firm, under the section titled Unlawful Possession of Ammunition (US):

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.

Here's hoping that maybe a member of the liberal media might get what's coming to him, but I for one am not going to hold my breath to see if it actually takes place.

UPDATE: Reporter Whitney Eleanor Wild Tweeted that NBC had asked DCMPD if they could use the high capacity magazine and were told no. Legal Insurrection Blog confirms the story of the DCMPD's denial of permission to Gregroy and NBC.

UPDATE: David Gregory will not be on this weeks Meet the Press. NBC says that he had vacation scheduled (Suuuuuure, he did). He is scheduled to return on January 5, 2013. NBC has not issued any statement about the D.C. police's investigation.

    Try to imagine the howls of anger if LaPierre brought that in thier studio!

  • steveni

    LMAO! Too funny that a liberal breaking the law making a retarded gun control statement may go to jail.

    • nanzar

      We wish! He a member of the lamestream media that tags along behind obummer, lapping up those tidbits that he is tossed, just like a good little doggie. Plus NBC lawyerS, not just lawyer, will be surrounding him like a shield, ready to obfuscate, contaminate, and irritate the legal process.

  • ecoplastican

    Oops! My stoopid keeboard misspeled thees werds. Stoopid keebord.

  • bobwhite1935

    The same old liberal saying ( " Don't do as I do. do as I say") or else to a FEMA camp you go.

  • retiredmillwright

    Gregory will walk away laughing with only a small hand slap.
    Justice is not used on their own, but to keep the law abiding little people in

    • emjay98

      Unfortunately I suspect you are right. Probably the big guy in the white house will intercede on his behalf.

  • wolfd

    ...War is their vehicle in which billions are made for the banks
    they work for....Terror is the word that defines cohesion for the
    masses.... Events are propagated by terror to move an agenda.... And
    your liberties are a farce, for you are only free enough to pay for it all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jvb1980808

    They were told BY POLICE that they did NOT have permission to do what Gregory chose to do anyway...so add contempt to everything else.

  • jvb1980808

    The laws are there Mr. Gregory...you, a law abiding citizen, find yourself in a predicament the average criminal will never be concerned about...OBEYING THE LAW. This is the point: Mr. Gregory, being the spineless liberal he is....had made the conservative view point crystal clear. We don't hold the right to carry weapons to defend ourselves from law abiding citizens but from criminals and the insane that the parole boards and court systems refuse to deal with in ways that KEEP THE REST OF US SAFE.

  • LCromwell

    And if we did what Ted Kennedy did, we would be in prison,much less kept our US Senator position!

  • Black Rain

    So, did he have a magazine that held 30 rds or is his credibility as a reporter bull. The liberal DC police will take care of their own lame stream media reporter.

  • AL, Orange Park, FL

    well all I can say sheriff is that this sounds like a hanging offense to me. (O;

    go get this lily liver'd liberal DC Cops go get him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jim

    Nothing will happen to obama's little minion, the DOJ will make sure of that. This story will disappear just as the ILL.State Congressman's did when he was taking a .25 cal pistol & mag full of ammo on the plane except he got caught by TSA. 2-3 months ago. His reason " He was working for a security company the night before & when he forgot he had it ! " WTF! an ILL. State Congressman moonlighting as a security guard with a .25 pistol . sure sounds fishy to me ! Sounds more like a cover up on how he got a weapons permit to me ! Any way sorry for drifting a little but this Mag story will follow the same route as the state congressman's story. Here today & gone tommorrow !

    • Black Rain

      Or fast and furious, double talk-or Benghazi, really no bodies fault.

  • http://twitter.com/VnZppr Eric Haulenbeek

    Gregory is your typical liberal hypocrite... a card carrying member of the 'do as I say, not as I do' crowd. Arrogant as-holes like this clown deserve every bit of the justice that the law provides for!

  • trumpsahead

    Throw the book at him, the damn fool!

    These idiots continue to argue nonsense - God, if you're listening put this moron law breaker in jail for one year.

    I say it's time to fight fire with fire. Gun rights advocates are always taking a defensive position, just like libertarians. We know we're in the right, so let's start throwing punches because these liberals are beating us at their game.

    Now, a simple point: Guns are mentioned in the Constitution of the U.S. with the intention that they are meant to keep the Government honest. But today, even many who own guns think rapid fire weapons and magazines should be banned --- are you people crazy?

    During the Revolutionary War soldiers used muskets, while their British Govt soldiers used --- MUSKETS. Ya get the picture? A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD: MUSKETS VS MUSKETS.

    Today We The People, in the event we need to defend ourselves against our run amok Govt who thinks they own us, we have rifles, shotguns and hand guns, but no rapid fire magazine loading weaponry, while the Govt soldiers will use against us: AK47's, machine guns, hand grenades, howitzers, tanks, bazookas, chemicals, helicopters, missiles, drones, bombs, Naval armory off shore. Are you kidding me or what?

    It's time we begin demanding our fair share of weapons. American citizens should be able to walk into a Gander Mt or Walmart and purchase a rifle with a 30-round magazine, and a machine gun. A bazooka shouldn't take longer than two weeks to get if you have a clean record and are a law abiding citizen such as myself who is a Notary.

    • CJMcRat

      Although I agree with you I would like to point out that we have 700,000 Deer hunters registered in Wisconsin. Add to that the number of gun owners in the rest of the country and you will see that we have the worlds largest army. We don't need no stinkin bazooka. Being a firm believer in conceales carry I can hear the women now, "Is that a bazooka in your pants, or are you happy to see me?"

  • Mutt

    Ha, ha, ha! Stupid arseholes like Gregory and NBC News are the best friends a Constitution-loving, 2nd Amendment advocate ever had. What a moron this fool is!

  • texanna

    Hey, if we're lucky, Gregory will be arrested after Ovomit signes the new NDAA bill and will be indefinitely detained without benefit if an attorney. ANYTHING to get this azzwipe off air!

    • patriot2

      well you know that he's in posession of an illegal article & we wouldn't get away with it why should he?in fact toss in bloomberg as well,two can hang as cheaply as one.besides,when someone breaks the law to opress someone else,there should be a harsher sentence,you catch that obama & holder?

    • Black Rain

      You've got be kidding. Holder will not go after the black panther leader threatening Mr Zimmerman or black panthers intimidating voters or the 2012 voter fraud. Why do you believe DC police or AG Holder will pursue liberal reporter David Gregory.

    • patriot2

      well I don't really,both obama,holder & the rest of their cronies think that they're above the law.as long as there are no guts in washington they're right.if you or I did the same thing we would already be in jail.

  • Jeronimo Dan

    This is not really David Gregory, this is Howdy Doody in deguise and Buffalo Bob will not let the police arrest Howdy, no way...

    Who really wrote the New Testament, and transformed Yahshua the benevolent revolutionary, into Jesus the passive egalitarian??

  • 2Asupporter

    Leave it to NBC to "break the law" and prove that a ban on thirty round mags will not stop them from being aquired one way or another, for what ever purpose someone has in mind.

    • randellmd

      NBC's version of F and F; code name it Quick and Quirky.

    • http://www.facebook.com/hiram.holiday Hiram Holiday

      I was training in Nevada at Front Sight and because I was from CA I was only allowed ten round mags. People from other States had fifteen. I learned that when my ten rounds ran out the bad guys would still be firing.
