Okay, now, this is just precious.

DC Police Investigating NBC’s Gregory for Brandishing Illegal Magazine

Exercising your constitutional right to be a sanctimonious asshole is fun!

In a discussion about gun control, host David Gregory brandished a 30-round magazine purportedly for an AR-15 or similar “assault rifle.” The discussion took place on December 23, during the broadcast of NBC’s Sunday morning political talk show.

Washington D.C.’s gun laws, however, state that even possessing such a device is a violation. Meet the Press is filmed at NBC’s D.C. studios.

Breitbart contacted the office of the police chief and asked if there were any plans to look into this apparent violation of the District’s gun laws. In response, Chief Lanier replied, “Yes, we are investigating the incident to determine if the magazine was in fact real.”

Tam (of course) summed up the situation better than I could if I composed all morning long:

Apparently, there’s no “Sanctimonious Dickhead” loophole in the statute.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Ok, but what’s to “investigate” here? He obviously had one of these terrifying devices and threatened everyone in the studio… He was caught red handed on nation wide video.

    Of course, the same device in my own gun bag is totally innocent and couldn’t hurt a fly.

    Some sort of disconnect there, but I’m sure the “investigation” won’t touch on it.

    So if a sufficient number of media types get thrown in the slammer for these insane “violations”, does that mean it is possible there will be sufficient outcry that the lawmakers will say it’s a stupid law and dump it? Or is the desire to stay in power too strong for rational thought. Wait, you can be rational and still be a power-hungry ass. We’re boned…

    Three guesses on how long it takes before a friendly local liberal politician smooths things over behind the scenes and says “It’s okay for him to have it; he’s one of us.”

    And apparently Greg did this despite having been previously advised by the cops that it was indeed illegal for him to have it. I hope they nail him just for the uproar it will (I hope) cause.

To the stake with the heretic!
