    Saying that this journalist should be thrown in jail is a waste of time. No one in DC should be thrown in jail for possessing something like that, not even this toolbag. I think we should be focusing on the fact that the magazine in his hands was completely harmless (physically, anyway) and should be legal for all to own, period. Saying he should be thrown in jail is to turn the corrupt, stupid system against someone we don't like. This is the exact opposite of what needs to be the real goal...getting rid of the entire unconstitutional, immoral gun control apparatus.

    My thoughts completely. I think the only thing the morons would NOT believe is if they tried to pass it off as a PEZ dispenser.

    With NBCs penchant for adding explosives to Chevy pickups when they did not blow up as they reported or selectively editing a tape to accuse someone of being racist ignoring gun laws to sensationalize a story does not surprise me.

    Come on people... its not "fo" or "foe" it's "faux" meaning fake.

    A "faux" magazine would mean that it is fake.

    It's no wonder we are getting our tails kicked when it comes to discussion of "assault weapons" and magazines. Any one choosing to surf gun sites for info might think we are all a bunch of toothless rednecks with 5th grade educations.

    and..while we are on it...they (D.C.) would have to prove that that magazine wasnt legally owned before they passed a law against it. I think the burden of guilt is on the state to prove...but it is D.C,. an entity unlike any other in the United States so all bets are off on that one.

    Rarely prosecuted? Read some of Emily Miller's storied in the Washington Times about the number of times otherwise innocent individuals have been prosecuted for this in the last couple years. It will get your blood boiling. She is a one-women crusade to force DC to acknowledge the constitution.

    That being said, this should be spun as a demonstration of how absurd DC laws are, rather then spun as a "you punish us, why not him". Nobody should be punished for this "crime".

    Dude, I never said never happens...I quoted a defense attorney who said it. And you seem to be forgetting that the folks mentioned in the article (3 I beleive) were caught with the material with them. Mr. Gregory had it on TV and I doubt police on duty were watching the show at the time.

    And if you read the stories, two of them were for firearms AND ammuniton. Most likely like a lot of arrest they will bring a mulitude of charges against you. So i don't see your example of where there is a plethora of arrests AND prosecutions against people soley for having a 30 round magazine.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    sorry, didn't mean to imply that you were claiming it was rarely prosecuted, instead of the lawyer. The REPLY WITH QUOTE kind of messed up.

    I just meant to say that DC gun laws are just seriously messed up, and the DC police are very ready to enforce them. The DA says that gun laws are just there to stack the charges on a criminal, but the reality is they go after innocent civilians, and screw up their lives. There were 594 arrests for unregistered ammunition in 2011, according to MPD, and 64 of those were the top charge (as in 64 individuals charged solely for having "unregistered ammunition".

    Can't own ammo if you don't have a registered gun that fits it is just one example. Seriously, 12 months in jail for owning a 9mm round if you don't own handgun?

    From Emily's article: "The D.C. attorney general’s spokesman, Ted Gest, told me that prosecution for unregistered ammunition is common."

    I don't know what the arrest specifics are for 30 rd magazines, but with the type of record the DC police have, I am sure it happens. If they arrest you for just for having an "unregistered bullet", then they will surely arrest you for a 30 rd magazine.

    The problem is that we should be using this as an example of how absurd these laws are, instead of advocating enforcing them (even if it is on 2A detractor).

    Why is David Gregory not under arrest?

    Why. ? They are the elite. His kids go to the same school as Obamas. The one with armed guards. They appear to be under a different set if laws

    I disagree. We absolutely must enforce laws like this, as painfully as possible. Especially when that pain is directed at advocates of the law. That's the only way laws like this get repealed.
