NBC News asked Washington D.C. police for a high-capacity magazine clip to use on Meet the Press, but was denied, according to a report by Washington Post. The information comes amid an investigation into host David Gregory‘s use of a 30-round magazine on the show. “It’s not clear where the prop used during the show was obtained, or who obtained it,” the report noted. The Post alludes emails from the police department posted online: After the show, people contacted D.C. police asking whether they would charge Gregory with a crime. A response from the department’s customer service section

On next week´s show, David Gregory should be on camera seated on a multi-gallon toilet (very un-Green) facing the viewing audience, holding a 32-ounce sugary drink, and pointing the drink menacingly at Mayor ´Red´ (not Blue!) Bloomberg, who will be, most likely, tuning in and hoping to see Gregory bashing another right-winger on ´Meet the Press´.

I´m surprised they haven´t claimed it was a stunt double clip lifted off a movie set.

So David Gregory finds out that anti-gun laws don´t stop criminals, but do stop otherwise law-abiding citizens. Sweet!

This means David Gregory´s criminal behavior was INTENTIONAL. He knew that he was committing a crime with malice of forethought. David Gregory is a criminal and should be prosecuted if there is any justice at all in Washington, D.C.

Prosecute David Gregory and those complicit at NBC News. They are intentional criminals.

He got it from the security office at his kids´ school ... you know, Sidwell Friends, the swanky school where liberal Democrats send their kids while the rest of their plantation Democrats are forced to go to terrible DC public schools.

Or maybe from his personal security detail.

"Just trying to imagine what the reaction would´ve been had Wayne LaPierre held up the clip."

>> This comment gets to the heart of the matter.

Right now there´s a lot of static and noise from the media and political elite, calling the outcry against Gregory´s actions petty, counter productive, while haughtily claiming "the police have more pressing matters to handle," etc.

However, what they forget, ignore, and cover-up is the fact that these laws that they support, the same that Gregory clearly and intentionaly violated, are the very same (I believe to be unconstitutional) laws that have been used to infringe upon the Second Amendment-rights of millions of gun ownders, and have been used to ensnare thousands of erstwhile law-abiding citizens into felony arrests and a criminal record.

If it is Joe Sixpack holding up a similarly empty standard capacity magazine to the Mayor of DC on a street corner, or Barack Obama, etc. while asking "Why would you deny me my God-given rights?" they would be looking at immediate arrest, processing, prosecution (and perhaps a "tune-up" from the likes of the DC Police and/or Capitol Police/Secret Service), along with a black mark on their record that would forever deny them their right to "keep and bear" a firearm.

Not a single soul in the elite media would come to Mr. Sixpack´s defense. No, it is likely they would encourage swift arrest and punishment so as to set an example to the unwashed masses that the political and media elite are immune from such concerns and all that question them must either be criminally minded and/or insane.

Yes the law that Mr. Gregory has violated is ridiculous and Constitutionally dubious. However, that´s exactly the point, isn´t it, and that´s exactly why he should be prosecuted.

Magazine! Magazine! Magazine! Magazine!
Words mean specific things. A clip is not a magazine. Clips are used to load magazines. Magazines are not all the same. The NBC moron was holding a Detachable Box Magazine. There are also internal magazines on many rifles and some pistols and shotguns. There are tubular magazines and rotary magazines. There are belt-fed weapons that use no magazine at all.

These journ-O-list idiots cannot even accurately describe what it is they want to ban. I am weary of firearms illiterates holding forth on subjects of which they are willfully and stubbornly ignorant.

Do some basic research, shite for brains newsreaders.

For the umpteenth time, JournoListers and ALL media pinheads: it´s NOT a ´clip´. It´s a magazine. There is a very important difference. If you don´t know, don´t default to television slang. Look it up.

if you don´t know the difference, you have no right to comment on ANY firearms issues, let alone attempt to pass ridiculous and ineffective laws.

This alone shows intent. Isn´t intent all that is needed to prove a violation of law? It also means, even though ignorance of the law is no defense, that they had foreknowledge the action was illegal, and chose to break the law.

I would like to think LaPierre was quietly snickering ti himself in smug satisfaction during the interview,hoping, as happened, someone else called them on it. It would just not have been as good had LaPierre had to do it.

Seems they now have a Second Ammendment Attorney to defend him in case if arrest. Oh, the irony.

A little schaudenfreude goes a long way these days, doesn´t it?

Like the gun owner map, sauce for the gander. Stick that in your magazine and smoke it.

Lastly, now we get to see if he will be treated like anyone else, or one of the priveledged elite. Money dies talk, right?

Pipeline Delay

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S.

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
