They do this to try to make it seem easy to get items they think should be prohibited. But those items/transactions are prohibited!!! They are selling a false narrative to the public.

And from the DC Criminal Defense Lawyer Blog:

3. Unlawful Possession of Ammunition – As I mentioned above, in the District of Columbia, unless you are a licensed firearms dealer, you can only possess ammunition for the type of firearm that you are lawfully registered to own. Possession of unlawful ammunition is a crime and can result in a fine of $1,000 and a year in prison. It is also illegal to own what is considered a “large capacity ammunition feeding device,” which 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.

I chose to highlight these three major gun laws because they are the ones most likely to catch someone off guard that has no idea they are in violation of the Washington, DC gun laws.

Not true. Federal law says you can purchase a long gun in any state as long as it is allowed by your state of residence and the state you purchase in. Some states only allow you to purchase in contiguous states though. NC just removed that clause from our laws recently. See USC 922 (b) (3)

http://www.atf.gov/publications/download/p/atf-p-5300-4.pdf. It's page 8 according to the page numbers but it is page nine of the PDF itself because of the title page.

Good luck actually making it happen. Scottsdale Gun Club wouldn't let me do it. They insisted on shipping it to my FFL in NC. I can't blame them. The ATF is a capricious organization.

If a news organization went to the DC police and asked them if they could borrow a magazine to use in a news story, and the police okayed it, and the news organization returned it to the police after the show, it would be hard to argue that he would be "in possession" of it in any meaningful sense. 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.

Hmm, 5 minutes ago there was a nice pic on MTP's Facebook of Gregory with the two magazines clearly visible on the table as he was looking over his notes before the show.
As soon as I commented asking about compliance with DC's mag ban, the entire discussion was zapped.

I'm pretty sure you can buy long guns in neighboring states - but handguns HAVE to go through an FFL in your state. Face to face also can ONLY be in your state.

It's not a big deal for a nut facing an unarmed and defenseless crowd of kids to reload as many times as he wants. He has all the time in the world when he's the only one with a weapon. It is a very big deal to force a citizen to have to reload to defend his family from an armed threat.

You can buy any long gun in any state, as long as the laws of both states agree. Some states still have laws reflecting the now-void federal law that long guns may only be sold to residents of contiguous states.

There's no "a cop gave it to me" exemption for "possession".


Please read what I wrote.

We're not talking about someone saying a cop GAVE it to him, and basically owning it or having it long-term I'm talking about a reporter TEMPORARILY BORROWING one for the brief time to shoot a news story and then returning it. In that hypothetical case, it's not clear that it would rise to the standard of "possesssing" that would be enough for a prosecutor or judge to gie a shit about. 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.

Because I don't have magazine pouches sewn into my pajamas.

At night, if I'm grabing my home defense gun, I don't have anywhere to put a reload.

Yup... that's my thought. But who knows?


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.


breaking the law is still breaking the law.


who ever gave it to him is guilty too

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.


There's no "a cop gave it to me" exemption for "possession".


Please read what I wrote.

We're not talking about someone saying a cop GAVE it to him, and basically owning it or having it long-term I'm talking about a reporter TEMPORARILY BORROWING one for the brief time to shoot a news story and then returning it. In that hypothetical case, it's not clear that it would rise to the standard of "possesssing" that would be enough for a prosecutor or judge to gie a shit about. 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.


Okay, fine, whatever. That's great and you might be right.

But who cares?

From Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.”
RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”
RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”



It doesn't matter if he's technically okay. We should hammer it anyway. The perception is what counts. Use 3,4,5, and 12.

LE doesn't have the authority to exempt individuals from law. PERIOD. LE may themselves be exempted but they don't have the power to extend that exemption.

Your selective outrage seems to fit the gun-grabber narrative. That if he didn't meaningfully posses it, it's okay because he couldn't go out and kill kids with it.

My outrage is based on the reasoning that if these items are so inherently evil that law-abiding people cannot possess them, then no one should be able to possess them. If we are to believe that anyway...

The law is the law. And even the "thought leaders" must follow it--particularly if they are advocating for more laws.

But unlike an NFA story I doubt the police were in the same room with the magazine as an NFA owner would be.

Don't NFA items have to stay within line of sight?
Anyone can do a man's work; acting like a man is the hard part.

Would it be okay for David Gregory to borrow some child porn or meth from the police as well?


lol

Will your head explode it I tell you that news vans are sometimes parked illegally, while covering a story, and don't get ticketed!!!
This isn't a democracy, it's a cheerocracy !
