David Gregory’s ‘oops’ with a banned 30-round gun magazine

Uh oh, Mr. Gregory. NBC may have some explaining to do after Sunday morning’s “Meet the Press” where host David Gregory had in his possession, and shared with viewers, a 30-round magazine for what he claimed was from an AR-15 rifle.

During the 23-minute interview with Wayne LaPierre from the NRA, Gregory held up the magazine and asked LaPierre if he would support reducing ammunition capacity.  When LaPierre responded he didn’t think that would make a difference because it hasn’t worked in the past, Gregory said, “you’re telling me that it’s not a matter of common sense that if you don’t have an ability to shoot off 30 rounds without reloading, that, just possibly, you could reduce the loss of life?”

Well, according to Breitbart.com, David Gregory violated DC law, where Meet the Press is filmed, because that particular magazine is already banned. Oops. The statute reads:

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

(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.

    If we have to follow the law so should this guy of course It doesn't seem to apply to the rich in this country

      that is what is so frightening about gun control. I am afraid that only ordinary citizens will have to comply.

    The MSM, esp. NBC, no longer are truthful or accurate in their 'reporting' and 'communication' activities. They follow the liberal, socialist, party line faithfully in all the do.

    Mr. Gregory should voluntarily spend his year in jail if he truly believes that gun laws work.

    Wasn't there a report that John Kerry brought an AK47 (possibly fully automatic) back from Vietnam against militay regs? The rules do not apply to the elite, just the rest of us.

    Maybe the bigger question is….. HOW DID MR. GREGORY GET POSSESSION OF THAT CLIP IF IT IS ILLEGAL??? MAYBE WE SHOULD BE LOOKING AT THE ILLEGAL TRAFFIC IN SUCH ITEMS THAT ALLOWED HIM TO GET IT IN THE FIRST PLACE????
