Arfcom should prepare for the wrath of NBC, and be on alert.

Remember, as liberals, they will not just get angry or talk - they will act in ways to punish. I just don't know if they understand who they're messing with. "Back-firing" is a very small and inadequate description of how this will blow up in their faces.

I use the Fight Club analogy "We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances. We guard you while you sleep. Do not... fuck with us."

Dear NRA:

Please take all that money I sent you last week and put it towards "Wanted" ads for David Gregory - preferably running during MTP. This is a golden opportunity to drive home the enforcement issue.

It IS a big deal when you are fighting an armed assailant, or frankly anyone that intends to do you harm. If you have 2 armed people in break into your house, you are going to be very happy that you have that many rounds available without having to commit a magazine change.

Do you know when it DOESN'T matter? When you are murdering 7- 8 year old children. The shooter at VTech performed 17 mag changes during his rampage. And he was able to do so unimpeded because he was murdering unarmed college students and staff. Does anyone honestly think that if the shooter was restricted to 5 round magazines the outcome in Sandy Hook would have been much different?

Just emailed the DC police this

Gentleman,
This morning Mr Gregory was in possesion of a AR-15 magazine on national TV, which is in violation of D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01

This is a felony offense as per DC laws, see below:

"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.�."

Several citizens have been prosecuted under your unconstitutional gun laws and just because he is a reporter he should not get a pass.

I do not like your laws, but if you pulled me over and I had a AR-15 mag I would go to jail and have to spend countless dollars to get my sentence reduced/stay out of jail.

Would a "I didnt know"save me???

Or can I too get permission to posses 30rd mags while in DC??

Heck no, you would throw me in jail and say..tell it to the Judge.

I ask you do one of two things:

Prosecute him
or get rid of the law

Its your duty to do the right thing, I would rather you just drop the law, but if not he needs to be held accountable.

Thanks for your time
Joe

Where's Don Lemon a resident of at all? If he's from NY now, he's probably in violation of several of their state laws, too.

Edit: Disregard. He's from Georgia, apparently. Legal for long guns. Nevermind.


It's only legal to buy long guns in neighboring states. Any other states and it has to go through a dealer in your state of residence.


Huh?


If you are a say Florida resident it is illegal to buy a gun while you are in Nevada. The only legal way to do it is like buying over the internet, you pay for it at the dealer in NV and he ships it to your local dealer in FL where you fill out the 4473 and do the background check.


That is not true and has been cleared up here before.

There is nothing in federal law about restricting long gun sales to neighboring states. A few states require it to be a neighboring state, but most don't.

Has anyone contacted LE or NBC about this? I say get this out to as many outlets as possible, If a law abiding person did something similar, the media would have already convicted them. Hell, Zimmerman was pretty much guilty by the media before he was taken to the police station.
I've never seen gun control issues like this before and us as gun owners and supporters of the 2nd amendment must do what he can to preserve our rights. So if that includes nailing the anti's with violation of laws, even better. We must not let up, we must show discredit to their reporting. Yes people in general wont care or the media will sweep it under a rug, but if we continue to hammer them the tide may turn

My point is that it wouldn't really be any different from a cop at the range letting some kid shoot his AR or something like that. Obviously that kid is not in illegal possession of an AR for the few minutes e is holding it.

The argument would become so technical that it would be pointless. If a cop had let David Gregory touch a magazine, is that a crime? What about if he left him hold it for 5 minutes? What about loaning it for 2 hours? What if a cop was AT the studio, just off-camera? I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you that TECHNICALLY a law might have been broken, but it would be in such an ambiguous way that no judge or prosecutor would care ... IF in fact we are talking about borrowing it temporarily from law enforcement.
There are people in prison for felon in possession for merely having finger prints found on a weapon they never owned, used , or even fired



How did their prints get on the weapon?

they picked it up just like Mr Gregory did with this magazine

I was just stating that in the past merely holding a item has constituted possession if the powers that be would like to pursue it
and in this case there is video to go along with it

That is a good point.


How is it a good point? He is in possession of a prohibited item. There is no exemption in the law because you know somebody or got it from LE.


All it proves is a cop broke the law by transferring a prohibited item and something that might be department property.

Is there any evidence that the mag was functional or an actual 30 rounder (as opposed to a pinned 10 rounder)?

Unless the reporter came into the mag illegally, this is just silly.

If a reporter went to a police evidence locker to do a story about drugs and touched a baggy of drugs to set up some pictures, should the reporter go to jail for "possession".

Dollars to donuts this mag was either property of the DC police (or other law enforcement agency) and the cop was in the studio (so no one would get hurt by the dangerous mag) or it was non-functioning.

Unless the reporter came into the mag illegally, this is just silly.

I don't know, the mag looks legit. It needs to be investigated, I don't want illegal mags on the street.

He said it was a 30 rounder... and he held up an actual 10 rounder afterwards.

Occam's razor, a well as Gregory's words and easy visual confirmation suggest that it was indeed what he said it was. Walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, David Gregory said it was a duck, then he held up a chicken to compare it to, saying "this isn't a duck" about 10 seconds later in the segment. It's probably a duck.

Gun laws are byzantine - and it should come as no shock that those seeking more of them don't realize they're violating them. That's much of the point of calling it out.

In fact, I have previously given examples of a D.C. cop letting a kid shoot his duty weapon. So BY MY OWN WORDS, clearly I am not talking about something that should be okay for "the elite" but not for the average person, because the very example I gave to make my point involved a kid being allowed to shoot a gun.

So, either so are unable to read and comprehend simple English, or your argument is now so weak, that you are forced to LIE about what I have been saying.

This entire time, I have merely pointed out that IF they temporarily borrowed a magazine from law enforcement, then it does not seem to be any kind of serious crime, even though as a technicality, of course the argument could be made. Furthermore, my point has also been that no prosecutor or judge would ever take this seriously, no more than a prosecutor or judge would take someone seriously that claimed a kid should be charged with a felony, if a cop let the kid shoot his gun. My ENTIRE POINT is based on a purely hypothetical case (that may not even be true). As I have repeatedly stated - and you apparently have trouble comprehending - if it turns out that he got the magazine somewhere other than on loan from law enforcement, of course he should be charged with a crime.

I have been saying the same thing consistently, and you have been getting more and more bizarre in your desperate attempt to try to make some ludicrous point about my HYPOTHETICAL situation.

The point would be such a technical one, that a judge would dismiss it, even if a prosecutor wanted to purse it, is my guess.

IF they borrowed it from law enforcement, I don't really see it as being substantially different from a news story showing a reporter shooting full auto or something. Just because news footage shows the reporter standing with an NFA gmu or dealer sample doesn't mean they are somehow "in possession" of an NFA item that doesn't belong to them, because the owner is presumably standing right off camera.

My point is just that IF they actually went to the trouble of talking to LEO and borrowing it from them, I am not that outraged about it.

IF they didn't do that, then I completely agree that David Gregory should be charged with a crime.


A crime is a crime is a crime. There is nothing in DC's law that exempts individuals who have LE's blessing. We are not a third world dictatorship where the law is subjectively applied because some elitist gun-grabbing Libtard wants to make a point. To believe that puts the Liberal ideology above law and ultimately reason. It's just like Bloomtard calling for an LE strike demanding gun control which he claims will make his city safe. How many Americans would have been robbed, raped, and murdered in an LE strike?!??!! Again, agenda before law and reason.

If you would stop digging yourself in you would realize I am the one being principled. This "journalist" wanted to make 30 rounders appear dangerous, easy to get, and in need of regulation. He told a lie. That lie was also a crime because the narrative he is trying to create is wholly different from reality in the District of Columbia.

If all men are held to the same standard, the world becomes more just. If Liberals want to create laws, they should have to live by those laws. The great lie of Liberalism, as illustrated in the last election, is that there is a "free lunch." Someone else will pay and you are exempt. It is a reality of special people with special privileges.

Go ahead and give them quarter. They'll give you none--you aren't one of their special people.

And you want me to apologize to you?

Why don't you back us up and help us fight these people in every way possible instead of making excuses?

This is black and white, open and shut.

He's guilty. Busted right on TV.

The only remaining issue is if LE will do the right thing, or the political thing.

LE exists to enforce laws, failing to enforce this "in your face" violation will make LE inept or complicit. Which is it?
