Washington - 'Meet the Press' anchor David Gregory is being investigated by Washington D.C. police after he showed a high-capacity gun magazine that is illegal under Washington D.C. law.
On Sunday, during the famed weekly NBC program, Gregory held an interview with NRA (National Rifle Association) chief Wayne LaPierre. During the interview, according to the New York Daily News, Gregory held up a case, saying
"Here is a magazine for ammunition that carries 30 bullets,” Gregory said, holding up the long, black casing. “Now isn’t it possible that if we got rid of these — if we replaced them and said, ‘Well you can only have a magazine that carries five bullets or 10 bullets’ — isn’t it just possible that we could reduce the carnage in a situation like Newtown?”
Now, police are investigating the legality of the magazine. According to Politico, the specific law in question states: “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,” among other devices.
An editorial blog posted on redstate.com argued that Gregory should be arrested. Part of the editorial reads if I publicly demonstrated my possession of an illegal magazine in DC then I would be arrested – which is something that I already knew very well. That David Gregory apparently did not is because David Gregory thinks that he is protected by privilege – which, as Robert Anton Wilson once reminded us, literally means ‘private law.’
According to Politico, a request by NBC to use the magazine on air was denied by Police prior to the taping of the program.
