NBC’s “Meet the Press” host David Gregory is reportedly under investigation for possibly breaking the law on national TV. During an interview with the head of the NRA, Gregory pulled out a gun magazine.
 

KNBC:
“Here is a magazine that carries 30 bullets. Isn't it possible that we got rid these... isn't it possible we could reduce the carnage in a situation like Newtown?”


Fox News: 
“Here is the problem with that Washington, D.C. gun laws say carrying a magazine that holds more than 10 round of magazines is illegal in the district.


No reports yet on whether or not that was a prop or a legitimate and loaded magazine. While authorities investigate, thousands of viewers are pushing for Gregory to be charged, with a White House petition stating.


“David Gregory is not above the law; he is a journalist, and must be held accountable to the same law as every other person. … We The People demand that he be formally charged for violation of this law on ‘Meet The Press.’” That petition is approaching 7 thousand signatures.


A writer for The Patriot Perspective points out the mistake of Gregory ….


“...goes to show once again that we have plenty of gun laws.  We just need to start enforcing them against criminals, rather than going after law abiding citizens with more laws that criminals and madmen certainly will never follow and will never be affected by.”


In the show, Gregory also questioned the NRA’s proposal to place armed guards in schools. A writer for The Weekly Standard calls that position, hypocritical.


“The Gregory children go to school with the children of President Barack Obama... it has a security department made up of at least 11 people. Many of those are police officers, who are presumably armed.  Moreover, with the Obama kids in attendance, there is a secret service presence at the institution, as well. “

No official word yet from NBC but — if the AR-15 magazine is found to be real and Gregory is charged, he could face up to a $1,000 fine or a year in jail.
