NBC’s David Gregory to Face Gun Charges?

Welcome to the Utopian world of over-regulation, Mr. Gregory. You knew better than to bring that “assault magazine” (snicker) on the set! GUARDS! SEIZE HIM!!

Via WND:

Thousands of people have signed an online petition demanding that the Obama administration file charges against NBC’s David Gregory for his possession of a high-capacity gun magazine.

According to a published report over the weekend, Gregory held up a high-capacity magazine for ammunition on national television for a discussion of gun controls.

On “Meet the Press,” Gregory brandished the magazine and said, “Here is 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 could only have a magazine that carries five bullets or 10 bullets,’ isn’t it just possible that we could reduce the carnage in a situation like Newtown?”

His commentary came after the Newtown, Conn., school shooting where 20 children and six adults were killed by a 20-year-old with several guns he had obtained, despite state restrictions that already should have prevented him from using them.

But the program is taped in Washington, D.C., and the district has a ban on such pieces of equipment.

So nearly 3,500 people already have signed the petition that was created on a White House website demanding that officials “press charges against David Gregory for possession of a 30-round, high capacity assault rifle magazine in Washington.”

The petitions are ways for Americans to bring issues to the attention of the Obama administration, and if the total signatures reaches 25,000 there’s supposed to be a response.

The petition states, “David Gregory is not above the law; he is a journalist, and must be held accountable to the same law as every other person.”

It quotes the district law, “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.”

“We The People demand that he be formally charged for violation of this law on ‘Meet the Press,’” the petition, created over the weekend, states.

At the time of the stunt, Gregory was asking Wayne LaPierre, the chief of the National Rifle Association, whether his group would argue over gun controls.

And the lefties say the right is mean-spirited?

Twitchy.com reported:

Twitter user and lawyer Aaron Walker has graciously offered to defend NBC’s David Gregory, who is now under investigation by Washington DC police for brandishing a high-capacity magazine on Meet the Press yesterday.

Walker (whose Twitter handle is @AaronWorthing) says that Gregory’s lawyer should argue that the DC assault weapon ban violates the Second Amendment of the US Constitution:
