What's good for the goose is good for the gander

 

Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has confirmed that the department is looking into allegations that NBC's David Gregory violated D.C.'s gun banning laws during a recent taping of Meet the Press.

In a discussion about gun control, host David Gregory brandished a 30-round magazine purportedly for an AR-15 or similar "assault rifle." The discussion took place on December 23, during the broadcast of NBC's Sunday morning political talk show.
Washington D.C.’s gun laws, however, state that even possessing such a device is a violation. Meet the Press is filmed at NBC's D.C. studios.
The law in question is titled: DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01, and reads (my bold):
(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.
Breitbart contacted the office of the police chief and asked if there were any plans to look into this apparent violation of the District's gun laws. In response, Chief Lanier replied, "Yes, we are investigating the incident to determine if the magazine was in fact real."
We will continue to watch this developing story.

This is fucking hilarious. Seeing as they're willing to jail gun owners for the same offense with the media's blessing and support, I'm hoping like hell he's treated the same way. Of course I'm sure they're going to say it was only the casing without the spring and follower - you know, because they always obey the law. Please please please let him have shown the magazine from the top with the follower in it.
Merry Christmas to all the folks at NBC.....

A california legal magazine LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THAT! they have a spring stop in them. I'm sure you know that. But the question is was that one of those types?

I doubt it or he would've said so. Besides, they're not that fucking smart.
Remember, we're talking MSM here.

Please do the same.

Looks like a 30 round mag for a M1 carbine.
Nice to have plenty.

It's a win-win. Either a sanctimonious twat gets his come-uppance, or we are presented with yet another data point for our 'we have enough laws, we just need to enforce them' argument.

The only way this could get better would be if it were Piers Morgan, Sara Brady, or one of the babbling heads from CSGV.

Much as I loathe the NRA (for not going far enough in defense of our rights), I would have handed over at least a one year membership if Wayne LaPierre had whipped out his cellphone, dialed 911 and reported the crime live on air.

I forgot to add...there's no wiggle room for a disassembled magazine in the law. Much like the frame of a pistol is a 'gun' regardless of how many of the small fiddly-bits that actually make it work are missing, it's still a gun and will land you a criminal rap if you posses the wrong kind in the wrong place.

So regardless of whether it was gutted, pinned, blocked or altered, it's STILL a 'high capacity magazine'.
