David Gregory presses NRA’s Wayne
LaPierre, may have violated DC law

The Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:sparky86, 12/23/2012 5:24:35 PM

On Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” moderator David Gregory took a very aggressive posture in his exclusive interview with NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre. After a series of LaPierre’s answers appeared to frustrate him, Gregory lashed out at LaPierre and held up a high-capacity ammunition clip, leading to a back-and-forth between Gregory and LaPierre. Partial transcript as follows: GREGORY: Because that’s your standard is that fewer people should be killed. That’s the goal here. And the standard is, if it’s possible, your words, if it’s possible that lives could be spared, shouldn’t we try that?

Although NBC is probably granted diplomatic immunity, Gregory went into full-fledged MSNBC mode today

Surprisingly, Gregory did NOT hold up the liberal-handy scalpel.

Even though the story cites the law´s definitions, the author still doesn´t understand what a clip is. Does he know what end of the gun the bullet comes out of?

Did David get around to talking about box cutters and their ban? They killed a heck of a lot of people eleven years ago yet no ban as of yet.

It does not matter that David Gregory violated a DC law, because Gregory is a liberal mouthpiece, and the liberals who run Washington, DC are not going to arrest and prosecute Gregory.

Now if Wayne LaPierre had brought along an empty magazine of the same type and showed it for emphasis, as Gregory did, it would be another story, and LaPierre would have been lucky to get out of the building without being arrested. That´s how political all this is.

Barack Obama and Eric Holder sold THOUSANDS of weapons to Mexico´s drug cartels, resulting in at least three hundred murders.

That´s about twelve times the number of victims in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

Why isn´t David Gregory asking Obama and Holder to stop hiding behind "executive privilege" and answer our questions about Operation Fast & Furious?

I get tired of blow-dried idiots talking about guns, a subject they know nothing about. Clips rather than magazines; bullets rather than cartridges. Automatic weapons rather than semi-automatic weapons.

Brings to mind the old saw about the similarities between opinions and anuses.

But it woulld be fun to call the DC PD and demandthat an arrest be made- since there is video evidence of a crime being committed. FOr those of you who think this is silly, it is to be pointed out tangible evidence that precisely refutes their logic. "Want laws to prevent people from having these things? That law alreadey exists. Enforce it!"

I bet the Marxist Gregory did not mention the story about the Chinese Communist controlled media calling for the immediate disarming of all Americans, a couple of days ago. All I can say is "Remember the Tiananmen Square Massacre." The Gregory´s of this world see themselves as the ruling elite, destroying the NRA and gun owning Patriots is just his duty to the Party. As soon as they get our guns they can take the NEXT leap Forward.

Next week Gregory will pull out a loaded AR-15 with that clip and empty it into his Republican guest shouting, "Is this what you want, punk!", winning himself an Emmy.

I´ve been watching the Sunday morning news shows nearly since they began, but the last few weeks I have found none of them watchable in the least, they are all like livecams into insane asylums.

Dead Ted Kennedy´s bodyguard (one of several - I actually had to work with them when my stupid dean managed to invite Ted as a commencement speaker not long after Ted killed Mary Jo Kopeche) dropped his uzi while entering the capitol building in d.c., and nothing happened to him.
James Webb carried a semiauto pistol into the capitol, blamed his assistant, nothing happened to them.

I happened to catch Lindsay Graham and Chuck Schumer on Gregory´s show this morning. When Graham said that he owned an AR-15, and didn´t want the government preventing him from buying another one, David Gregory actually started, sort of an involuntary recoil, and moved back slightly from his microphone. It was pretty funny!

Perhaps Mr. Gregory might explain to us how disarming the nation´s law abiding citizens could possibly make school children safer?

And, what is his plan to deal with the hundreds of millions of high-capacity magazines already out there in public hands?

If they ban high capacity magazines they will just be creating a black market for them, and create something else that the Mexican smugglers and any other criminal group can smuggle into the USA and make a buck.

The best thing to do is enhance the background checks and grant a waiver of the medical privacy laws relating to mental illness so that law enforcement conducting the checks can be told when an applicant to purchase a firearm has a mental illness and is considered dangerous to him or herself and others.

Gregory should be arrested and prosecuted. Yes, DC´s law is ridiculous and on its face, unconstitutional. However, far too many otherwise law-abiding citizens have been turned into felons at the stroke of a pen because of laws such as those in DC. If LaPierre were the one to wave that magazine around in DC on live television, I haven´t the slightest doubt DC police would be frog-marching him out of the studio and he´d be looking a a $1,00 fine and a year in jail.

Further, the fact that Gregory was waiving that magazine around demonstrates how felons - such as Gregory - do not obey the laws in the first place. Felons and evil-does have never and will never respect societal norms and laws. In fact, they see locations such as "Gun-Free" zones simply as places where lambs can be had for slaughter.

David Gregory better be arrested and prosecuted. This was not an oversight, he purposely sought a standard-capacity AR magazine and possessed one in the District of Columbia where doing so is illegal.

There is increased threat against civilians worldwide. It is organized insanity from the radical Islamists. And it is acts of individual insanity, often feeding off of the long drawn out news attention on school massacres (copycat massacres). There never used to be school massacres. The press has to take some responsibility, and they won´t. The answer is to arm civilians with weapons and ammo, and the gun training from the NRA, because the police will only show up after the fact. And the difference between a 30 round magazine and six 5 round magazine is only a few seconds.

While Gregory was berating the NRA for suggesting that armed security people be placed on duty in schools, the Washington Post reported some time ago that Gregory has children who attend a high end private school in the D.C. area where the tuition is about $33000.00 a year per student. The school also has up to eleven security guards on duty at any one time!

In a redacted report — first highlighted by the Military Times — the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General reveals a plethora of cringe-worthy offenses perpetrated by an unnamed VA employee.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion.
