This is just so f'ng childish and stupid. A bunch of RW sites started cawing the other day that for all that Gregory was attacking LaPierre, the mere fact that he had a magazine in D.C. made him more of a law breaker than Wayne, and where is the OUTRAGE!! So they went and ginned up a crime and actually got the D.C. police to investigate. Ugh.

Washington (CNN) – Washington Metropolitan Police Department is investigating whether NBC’s David Gregory violated D.C. gun laws when he displayed what he described as a 30 round magazine as part of an interview during Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”

“So here’s a magazine for ammunition that carries 30 bullets. Now isn’t it possible that if we got rid of these, if we replaced them and said well, you can only have a magazine that carries five bullets or ten bullets, isn’t it just possible that we could reduce the carnage in a situation like Newtown?” show moderator Gregory asked Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association.

It’s not known whether the magazine Gregory had in his hand was authentic or a prop. D.C. police spokeswoman Gwen Crump told CNN the department is investigating the matter and would have no further comment at this time.

    I assume that the next step is that the Pukers/BaggerHaters will want him deported?

    Well -- going by just the screenshot, he has a magazine in his hand . . . but. No. Gun.

    Don't these rightwingnuts know that magazines don't kill people, people kill people? :)

    BTW -- if David Gregory committed a crime in DC by holding a magazine, then I'm certain Sean Hannity committed a crime in NY when he tweeted a pic of his completed election ballot:

    Where's the rightwingnut outrage about that?
