Thing 1: Even when a gun or magazine or clip is banned it does not stop it from getting into a place and into the hands of the wrong people, be they bad guys, dumbass punks or News Anchors. But I repeat myself.
Thing 2: Just like bad guys and dumbass punks the elite and new media types feel they are above the law -- no matter how stupid the law (or the news anchor) and can get away with things us regular schleps cannot because they are better than us and are doing it for a higher purpose and therefore the law does not apply to them, even when those charged with enforcing the law tell them otherwise.
Thing 3: If this dumbass punk news anchor does skate on tis issue it is PROOF that the elites and the media whores are held to a different standard than the rest of us schleps.
Thing 4: That evil bad wicked naughty naughty naughty 30 round magazine may not be so evil after all. I mean for heaven's sakes, it was on TeeVee with a liberal and it didn't hurt anyone. But had the news anchor inserted it into a rifle and taken a pop at someone would they have blamed the gun, the magazine or the anchor? (aw c'mon, it no longer seems so farfetched. I fully expect someone like Ed Schultz or Tingles or this dweeb to come fully unhinged some day and do that very thing just to prove an anti-gun point).
Related Thing: Just returned from my local Sheriff's office where I did my patriotic and civic duty and renewed my own Pennsylvania License to Carry for another 5 Years. The Sheriff's Deputy was very pleasant, nigh unto friendly engaging in chit chat while we waited FOR A BACKGROUND CHECK (yes, liberal nitwits and pissants, in Pa. a background check is performed before a license is issued). Not an anti-gunner at all this gentleman, nor is our local sheriff. He's one who has some common sense about him, having been raised in a family that owns a sporting goods (hunting, not handball) shop. Also picked up my annual dog license while in the neighborhood so now I can carry my favorite Roscoe or a crazy Parson Russell with equal enthusiasm and abandon.
Oh yeah, here's the story
Cops told NBC not to use gun clip
NBC was told by the Washington police that it was “not permissible” to show a high-capacity gun magazine on air before Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” according to a statement Wednesday from the cops.
“NBC contacted [the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department] inquiring if they could utilize a high capacity magazine for their segment,” Gwendolyn Crump, a police spokeswoman, said in an email. “NBC was informed that possession of a high capacity magazine is not permissible and their request was denied. This matter is currently being investigated.”
That statement comes a day after the police department told POLITICO that an investigation is underway to determine whether any city laws were violated on a Sunday segment of “Meet the Press.” During the show, host David Gregory displayed what appeared to be a 30-round gun magazine while interviewing Wayne LaPierre, the head of the National Rifle Association.
“There are D.C. code violations, D.C. code restrictions on guns, ammunition,” police officer and spokesman Araz Alali told POLITICO Tuesday. “We are investigating this matter.”
NBC declined to comment.
The statement from the police department was obtained earlier Wednesday by Washington’s ABC7/News Channel 8
