David Gregory Violates DC Gun Law On National TV
the patriot perspective ^ | Dec 23, 2012 | ShortTimer

Meet the Press’s studios are located in Washington DC. This morning on “Meet the Press”, David Gregory decided to wave around a 30-round AR-15 magazine.

From DC’s gun laws:

DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01

All Gregory did was establish how futile the ban laws are.

But it doesn’t count with these liberal pricks. The gun running to Mexico by the Obama administration because they really had an anti gun agenda. These pukes have to be held accountable for breaking the law.

Exactly! The NRA should advertise this.

When it comes to wrongheaded liberals named Gregory, I’ll take Dick over David.

Dick served in the Army and was a pretty darn good standup comic, two things David has neither the guts or talent to do.

There was probably a SWAT team off camera to take care of any incident David Gregory might attempt with that empty magazine. Secondly, if the MSM was going to do a story on child pornography rest assured the reporter would be allowed to view such in order to do his story. (sarc)

He might have a tad more credibility if he (or his script writers) knew the difference between a bullet and a cartridge.

There are some AR-22 magazines that look a lot like AR-15 magazines, but I don’t think that’s one of them.

And if no action is taken against Gregory, they need to point out how inconsistently the laws are enforced.

But inconsistency is what they want: for when a government official arbitrarily chooses what laws are enforced he is acting as a high-priest to government, proving that the statist's god [the government] is above law.

Assuming Gregory is not arrested, Gregory is PROVING Wayne’s point that the existing laws aren’t enforced.

This cracks me up!!!

David’s kids go to Sidwell Friends School in DC. Current tuition 43k per year.
They have an armed security force and they are now advertising for a shift supervisor with a DC SPO license. That means a security guard that is licensed to carry.

Contact the Meet the Press scum about this hypocrisy: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6872152/ns/meet_the_press-more/t/meet-press-mailbox/ Won't do too much good — their leftist mindset won't let them see their own hypocrisy — but enough messages might make these hypocritical scum back down a little.

Could any DC resident or group file a criminal complaint to try and force the police into action, I wonder?

Why the fuss? Laws are for white, middle-class conservatives. We don’t enforce gun laws against liberals or criminals (redundant, I know).
