This made my day:

NBC contacted (the Metropolitan Police Department) inquiring if they could utilize a high capacity magazine for their segment. NBC was informed that possession of a high capacity magazine is not permissible and their request was denied. 

Full story – Fox News

LOL priceless… but he went and did it anyway.  What would be even more hilarious now would be if he doesn’t just get away with writing a $1000 check, and actually has to go to jail for a bit.

I cried “double standard” at first, even though I speculated that it may have been a prop or airsoft.  I’m curious to see where this goes now, because I’m thinking he still could just get a slap on the wrist.

If you missed the initial story and video you can check it out – HERE

Thoughts?  Do you want to see D-Greg out of that suit, into a jumpsuit and given three hots and a cot?

OH NOES!  Breaking a D.C. gun law in the process.  It happens at 9:56:

Legal in Washington D.C.:

Illegal in Washington D.C.:

The law (§ 7-2506.01):

No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term “large capacity ammunition feeding device” 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. The term “large capacity ammunition feedingdevice” shall not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

A person guilty of this charge can be sentenced to a maximum fine of $1000 and/or up to a year imprisonment. 

Enjoy your fine or prison sentence.  Oh wait, that will never happen.  Even if this does get a 2nd glance by law enforcement, MSNBC will likely claim it was a prop magazine not a real one, airsoft, or something similar then it will be swept under the rug.  I think the law he violated is ridiculous in the first place, but that’s not the point.  If they would bring up an average person on charges for possessing a magazine such as that one, then there’s no reason he shouldn’t at least have to write a check for $1000 at the very least.

Thoughts?  Do you guys like double standards as much as I do?
