Authorities investigating NBC's David Gregory for gun law violation
Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier confirmed that the department is looking into allegations that NBC's David Gregory violated D.C.'s gun laws when he waved a 30-roundmagazine on Sunday's "Meet the Press,"Breitbart reported Tuesday.
"Yes, we are investigating the incident to determine if the magazine was in fact real," Chief Lanier told Breitbart.
According to D.C. law, any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition is considered a "large capacity" magazine and is illegal in the district.
Since "Meet the Press" is taped in Washington, D.C., Gregory appears to have violated D.C. official code 7-2506.01.
"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 code reads.
Those violating the law can be sentenced to a "maximum fine of $1000 and/or up to a year imprisonment," the code says.
In addition to possibly violating the law, Gregory exhibited a bit of hypocrisy when he scoffed at the idea of placing armed police at America's schools.
"But," Daniel Halper wrote at the Weekly Standard, "the NBC host seems to have no problem with armed guards protecting his kids everyday where they attend school in Washington, D.C."
The implication is clear: Freedom and security for me, but not for thee.
Since the tragic Newtown shootings, propagandists in the Democrat-media complex have engaged in an all-out campaign to persuade Americans that the Second Amendment is no longer necessary. The result is another political battle pitting liberals and the media against freedom-loving Americans and the Constitution.
