In the media, we mean, such as known scofflaw David Gregory who enjoys haranguing law-abiding gun owners while waving around 30 round AR-15 mags on his show in a very menacing fashion indeed.
ILLEGAL 30 round magazines, the mere possession of which will give you up to $1,000 in fines and a year in the slammer.
The DC police is now looking into it, apparently it’s really hard to draw any immediate conclusions from a clear prime time news video of David Gregory waving a 30 round AR-15 magazine around while stating, loudly and clearly, that it is indeed a 30 round AR-15 magazine, the possession of which in DC is a crime, but you don’t want to rush to conclusions.
Particularly when it’s an anointed member of the Lamestream Media who, obviously, don’t have to follow the same laws as the rest of us, the very same laws that they’re advocating that we get more of. Because they’ll clearly be exempt. Had it been Joe Blow doing the same on a grainy YouTube video watched by five people, you can rest assured that he’d have been frog marched off by the DC constabulary the moment they became aware of it.
But not David Gregory because shut up, racist gun nut extremist.
Now, in David’s defense, one might argue that he simply didn’t know that the illegal magazine that he was waving around was, indeed, illegal in DC, he’s a journalist after all and, as such, cannot possibly be expected to know neither Jack nor Shit about that which he flaps his gums about, but even that “defense” is further complicated by allegations that David and NBC sought a permit to wave the menacing, mass murdering weapon of mass destruction ammunition carrier around on air, but were denied permission by the MPD.
That would be very — interesting — if true, because now “ignorance of the law” would no longer be any sort of a defense and it’s a pretty shaky one to begin with. That would mean that he’s a scofflaw as well. Not much of a stretch considering the “for me but not for thee” mentality that pervades the EneMedia.
Obviously, His Majesty does not wish for anybody to be sent to the slammer for violating a blatantly un-Constitutional “law”, including poor David, but he’s the one pushing for such laws. At least he should be made liable when he himself takes a giant piss all over them.
Or he could challenge the verdict on Constitutional grounds. We’d be right behind him in that. The sheer irony of seeing GFW and arrogant arsehole David Gregory trying to stay out of gaol by bitterly clinging to the 2nd Amendment would be priceless!
But the bottom line is this: Either the un-Constitutional “laws” of DC have to go or David has to go. To jail. Do not pass “Start”, do not collect $200.
UPDATE: MPD confirms that NBC did, indeed, request permission to use the illegal magazine as a prop on their show and were denied permission.
Looks like David “Lucy” Gregory has some ‘splaining to do. Of course, nothing will happen because He’s Better Than You™, as his sending his kids to schools with armed security while at the same time volubly protesting against your kids’ schools being similarly protected proves. So why is he not clapped in irons and charged yet?
RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. Hey commies… we can read too you know… Also note that this miserable shit-stain David Gregory sends… Read more »
is that the enemy media or the enema media?what the hell is the matter with gregory doesn’t he know that only criminals like chief cathy can have guns and gun stuff.
Fuckers still don’t get the fact that a magazine capacity is NOT going to change ANYTHING!!! Some of us (~ wink~) with training can do a mag switch or a weapons switch in less than 2 seconds. Some of our instructors used to put ‘dummy’ rounds in our M4s which would simulate a jam and force us to change to… Read more »
The worthless hypocrite openly thumbed his nose at the law.
I think the law is wrong and should be challenged on Constitutional grounds but I really, really want him to sit in a jail cell while it’s going on.
Prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. In fact, bring in Mike Nifong and Angela Corey to overprosecute the bejesus out of him. Pour encourager les autres, Fiat justitia ruat caelum and all that.
Good thing Wayne didn’t lay a finger on it. He Would have been arrested, charged with a felony, convicted in a D.C. Circuit Court, sentenced, and all his guns confiscated while he sitting there with it in his hand. And the numbers who want Piers Morgan deported is up, but who cares? All it proves is that the media conglomerates… Read more »
Speaking of Piers Morgan, some wag in the UK has started a petition to keep him in the US;
because “No one in the UK wants him back.”
You filthy plebeians. How dare you think I should live under the same rules as you. Don’t you KNOW who I am? I am the symbol of truth that you could even begin to understand. Go eat your cake while you worship me as the Man God I am…. They actually believe that the rules don’t apply to them…and he… Read more »
The magazine could have been rendered non-functional with a blob of JB Weld, in which case it may be legal (I’m no lawyer). Perhaps the DC Police is waiting for NBC to tell them that the glue is dried, and they can look now. As far as AR magazines go, it’s kind of a sliding scale of reliability. I get… Read more »
Mag capacity also depends on what caliber you’re using. With a .223, you have (as already astutely noted), about a 50% chance of being able to use a 30-round mag successfully. Shooting with a .308, anything more than 20 rounds is going to render a clusterfuck just about every time after the first 5 reloads. Every time some dumbass talks… Read more »
B-b-but wouldn’t that be disingenuous, waving something around, claiming it’s something it’s not and making bleating noises? Wouldn’t that be something like, oh, I don’t know rigging gas tank explosions in pickup trucks or something?
Laws are for us little people.
The guillotine.is long over-due.
Here is the overview from Feinstein. Actually if this is what she is going after I’m pretty happy, I don’t see how it has any hope of passing. As it stands this will never get out of committee, now we just need to make sure the traitorous RINO’s don’t cut a deal for to save us.
Hmm, my Link-Fu is weak.
Maybe we could petition to deport his dumb ass with that other fucked up elitist Piers Morgan. Just say’n
FEINSTEIN BILL WILL REQUIRE ‘GRANDFATHERED WEAPONS BE REGISTERED’; CALLS FOR OWNERS TO BE FINGERPRINTED…
I sold all of my guns for cash at last month’s gun show … wouldn’t you know it, every single buyer was named John Smith.
That John Smith has bunches of cash. He’s purchased a bunch of firearms in the past few weeks.
What guns? No mas, Senor…….

They don’t believe it, they know it. Big, and very critical, difference.
Probably nought will come of it.
BigDogg says: Every time some dumbass talks about “high capacity” and “rapid fire”, I am for some reason reminded of the shoot-out in Unforgiven – where everyone else is shooting as fast as they can, and hitting nothing, while Clint is just taking his time and picking off people with every shot. It’s a great visual for taking your time… Read more »
