Looks like David Gregory is going to join Hillary and Jesse Jackson Jr. in their undisclosed hideout until the "investigation" is over.

From the article: “ Today, the police issued a statement, saying NBC had been told before last Sunday’s show that it was “not permissible” to show a high-capacity gun magazine on air.”

Hyperventilation after he got a DC police summons and got dehydrated and fainted leading to a concussion.

Serially, if he is off the Meet the Depressed show its for a really fun reason.

I'm betting he's going to stay out of the jurisdiction for a while. That'll put a crimp in the old career.

All these lib elites believe the laws don’t apply to them.

They even asked and were told not to do it. NBC has hundreds of file photos and graphics of this crap.

They wanted to do it to show they could do whatever they want and not be touched. They are liberal media. They don’t have to obey the stupid liberal laws they vote for and force the regular dirty citizens to live under.

The only reason that it would not be permissible to show a high-capacity gun magazine on air would be if the video was made in D.C.

Just how hard would it have been to conduct the interview in Virginia just a few miles away? NBC and Gregory must be stupid indeed to open themselves up to this problem.

Numb nuts NBC coulda had their prop department whip up a few balsa wood magazines - after all, they’re experts at manufactured news and faked stories ...

AND, speaking of numb nuts - they’re magazines, not CLIPS. Grrrr ....

I’d love to think you’re right about this. But this is also a traditional time for some news readers to take off on vacation. But I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

In some parts of Mississippi, they have a name for what NBC and Gregory did.

It’s a condition called “eat-up with the dumb-ass.”

And that last word is pronounced “duhm-aayce.”

Used in conversation:
“I cain’t believe he did somethin’ so sh*t-all stupid. That boy is plumb eat-up with the dumb-ass.”

MSM domestic enemies of the Constitution.

Can you believe how ridiculous American has gotten. A guy shows a clip on TV and everyone is out for his head. Conservatives should be rallying behind him. It is a shame that politics is even blinding conservatives. I don’t care who it is, we should support all people being investigated in gun laws as there shouldn’t be any.

What part of not infringed do you not understand? Are you one of those pesky conservatives who believe in gun control?????

lol. You gotta admit this is so dumb. I can’t believe that we are seeing this travesty playing out in front of our own eyes. I never would have thought America would be so gone to see an American facing time for showing a clip on tv. We are in more trouble then I thought. The liberals have won. The conservatives are behind these stupid laws just because a liberal is possibly going to jail. What part of the slippery slope do they not understand?

You want to worry about this guy, fine. He's a card carrying liberal, so I doubt seriously if he would ever get charged with a crime. They are already in cover up mode. Now the ATF supposedly told NBC it was okay. In the meantime, Freepers are having fun with it and it does show the absurdity of the situation. There really wasn't any reason that NBC felt compelled to have this magazine on their show, except that they feel like liberals are above the law.

And there are people who shouldn't be allowed to have guns, felons and the mentally unstable come to mind.

Police investigate NBC News anchor for displaying gun clip on air
The maximum penalty for conviction on such a charge is $1000 fine and a year in prison.

Careful, you are playing judge of who is and who isn't protected under the 2nd Amendment, because YOU think it's okay.

If the 2A can be taken from them, it can be taken from you too.

And I guarantee, too many on the other side will think taking the right from you will be okay too.

If it goes to trial we should show up at the court house and picket for his immediate release under, not under the principle of 1st, but rather 2nd Amendment rights. I’ll wear my Tea Party Express t shirt just to give whatever media is covering it agita.

I can't tell if you are being serious or not.

The only way to fight these unConstitutional laws is to have a person arrested and charged, lose the case at the lower court level, appeal all the way to the Supreme Court, and have that Court declare the law unConstitutional.

I would much rather see Gregory and NBC have to undergo this trial than ME.

I've been waiting OVER TEN YEARS for the various court cases in Kalifornia to find their way to the U.S. Supreme Court so that my rights can be restored. This is not an easy process and I would much rather see liberals face the burden than someone whose opinions I share.

I was actually extremely surprised and pleased with the recent Heller decision and the follow-up McDonald decision from the Supreme Court. I didn't expect to see this in my life time. Now I have to wonder how many years it will take for the clarifying cases to be decided.

Yes, it is absurd. The DC government has passed a law which prohibits, among other things, possession of a magazine which can hold more than ten cartridges.

The claim is that Gregory showed that he was in possession of such an item while taping his show in Washington, D.C. If so, then he clearly violated this stupid and unConstitutional law. His actions deserve imprisonment BY HIS OWN ARGUMENT that such items should be banned. Perhaps ignorantly, he possessed such an item in a place where such possession IS ALREADY BANNED.

“napscoordinator” is a Moby.

i.e.,a lefty who poses as a conservative on sites like this to attempt polemic subterfuge.

He thinks he’s d being cute and clever by subtly taunting posters with left oriented talking points and arguments.

He’s been here forever and the mods are too thick to be hip to what his gig is.

You can’t be serious. You can’t really believe that this fascist pig would appreciate anything that conservatives might do to help him. You can’t convert him to our side.

This pig wants to destroy you and your family.

Let it go. Destroy him.

If you want to set up an anti-kool aid ministry to save David Gregory, you’re free to do so.
