'... please arrest David Gregory for illegal possession of a high-capacity magazine. Please...'
Now, of course, normally I'm not the vindictive type (e.g. note the commentors I haven't banned), but there are situations in which the irony, the karma, is so intense that I have to beg for an arrest. Handcuffs, perp walk, rounding up the malefactor's associates (NBC producers, directors, etc).
Please bust these guys. For violation of gun control laws.
After all, the law is unambiguous:
DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01
(b) 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 feeding device shall not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition...
It is also illegal to possess, sell or transfer any “large capacity ammunition feeding device.” A person guilty of this charge can be sentenced to a maximum fine of $1000 and/or up to a year imprisonment. D.C. Criminal Code 7-2506.01.
A year in prison...
It's too delicious. Please take a moment to understand the irony here. Supercilious elite media liberal David Gregory demands that ordinary citizens be prosecuted even more stringently for failing to obey ever more stringent gun control legislation. If you flashed this 30-round magazine in Washington D.C., your non-elite a** would be heading for the slammer. It wouldn't matter that the vast majority (99.9999%) of owners of high-capacity magazines never harm anyone, have the best of motives (protecting their loved ones, sport shooting, collectors, etc), are not criminals in any meaningful sense of the word. Gun-phobic elites want to criminalize you for possessing this magazine.
So the excuses that Gregory would offer to the arresting officer-- "I meant no harm, I was acting with the best of intentions, why don't you go after the real criminals,..." are exactly what you would say to the arresting officer if you, like Gregory, possessed a 30-round magazine.
The elites want you criminalized. They want you in jail if you possess it. But of course preening liberals like Gregory exempt themselves from the laws they intend for the lumpenproletariat
To the Washington D.C. chief of police: hoist Gregory on his own blow-dried petard. Give him what he and his a**hole liberal chums want to do to the rest of us.
