‘Meet the Press’ re­porter draws in­ves­ti­ga­tion

Austin American-Statesman - - AUSTIN360 DAILY -

WASHINGTON — District of Columbia po­lice say they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­ci­dent in which NBC News re­porter David Gre­gory dis­played what he de­scribed as a high­ca­pac­ity am­mu­ni­tion mag­a­zine on “Meet the Press.”

Po­lice spokesman Tisha Gant said Wed­nes­day the de­part­ment is in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether Gre­gory may have vi­o­lated D.C. firearms laws that ban the pos­ses­sion of high­ca­pac­ity mag­a­zines. She de­clined to com­ment fur­ther.

While in­ter­view­ing Na­tional Ri­fle As­so­ci­a­tion CEO Wayne LaPierre on Sun­day’s pro­gram, Gre­gory held an ob­ject, ap­par­ently as a prop to make a point, and said it was a mag­a­zine that could hold 30 rounds. High­ca­pac­ity am­mu­ni­tion mag­a­zines are banned in the District of Columbia. David Gre­gory
