    Who do we call / write?

    I believe it's important for these people to obey the laws they support. And they, and not just the little people, should be punished when they break their own laws. I believe it's the only way some of these people will realize how dumb their own laws are. So who do I write or call?

    A futile effort probably.

    But I'm willing to waste a 30 second call / email to a politician or police chief on this.

    I was watching FNC this AM, and the scrolling at the bottom of the screen said that the DA was looking into it. Said that he may have violated the law. Celeb though, so nothing will come of it I would bet.

    I sent an email to NBC News asking them what action they expected to take.

    Any odds on whether I get a response?

    This reporter inadvertently illustrated two of the main problems with laws like the one he's advocating for:
    1) it obviously doesn't stop people, since he broke the law
    2) enforcing it takes police resources away from going after real criminals, for example those committing all those homicides in the district

    Why would we put pressure on NBC?

    We need to put pressure on the Washington, DC government to repeal unjust laws such as this. Gregory should be the freakin' poster child. (I'm sure he'll love that!)

    Is it possible the magazine was altered to not function or limit capacity to ten and if so would it then be legal to posses in DC? Or is there a grandfather clause under which the magazine may be legal? It seems unlikely the show would travel to another state to get a magazine just for the segment but who knows.

    Sounds like a job for BATFE. But, like others, I am not going to be holding my breath.

    Until then, we should all be holding this up as an example of the fact that deranged people beholden only to their own selfish moral code will always be able to find a way around any ban. Only the law abiding will follow such rules; law-breakers clearly and willfully ignore them.

    He certainly wouldn't have something so precious as a breath hole.
    There's an actual law against that I think.

    It certainly would be interesting if they asked for permission to use the magazine, were denied, then proceeded to use one on the air anyways.

    So passionate about passing gun restrictions that they will break existing laws to pass new ones?


    Antigunners breaking gun laws seems to have a different criteria of severity to meet before they go after them, as long as it was being done to promote more gun restrictions.

    Now if it was you driving through and you got pulled over and they found that in your car?




    I am not in favor of the penalties being applied to anyone. However it is hard to maintain that for someone wanting even more who violates them specifically to make the penalties and restrictions even greater. Perhaps he should be held to the law he doesn't even think is harsh enough yet.

    Some of the news articles mentioned that NBC initially asked the DC police to use a 30-round magazine from them, a request which DC police declined as possession of such a device is illegal in Washington DC (Meet the press is typically taped in DC).

    The fact that NBC obtained what appeared to be a 30-round magazine after the DC police declined the request and still used it as a prop for the show demonstrated culpability by the show producers. Regardless who obtained the magazine, those involved broke the law willingly and knowingly.

    The law shouldn't exist in the first place but he should prosecuted and made an example of.

    Can you imagine the sheer awesomeness? If the pro's said "don't prosecute him, he didn't really do anything wrong because there's really nothing wrong with owning / possessing a NORMAL capacity magazine... What's he going to say? "No, it was horrible and illegal and I was a danger to society and should be locked up"?
