Vet arrested for AR-15 Mag, NBC Anchor above the law?
February 3, 2013 in Guns
Nathan Haddad, a decorated combat veteran, was arrested earlier this month in New York for possessing unloaded 30-round magazines. Mr. Haddad, who has been recognized by the Army for his selfless acts of generosity to fellow soldiers, was charged with five felony counts of possession of “high-capacity” magazines.
Since 1994, magazines over 10 rounds have been illegal. This month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation that makes any ammunition feeding device over 7 rounds illicit in New York. (Click here to read New York’s Radical Gun-Control Law.)
US Vets appear to be priority targets of the same Government you have fought for. While people supporting the current party line are allowed to flaunt the law for political gain… Mr.Haddad was arrested, before Governor Cuomo signed the expansive new gun-control laws, while NBC Anchor David Gregory was allowed to flash an outlawed AR-15 magazine on national television, the hypocrisy is enormous and the disdain of Veterans is evident.
Police are investigating whether David Gregory, the host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” violated any city laws after he displayed what appeared to be a 30-round gun magazine Sunday on the show, a Washington Metropolitan Police Department spokesman told Politico.
Several pro-gun and conservative groups have been upset about Gregory showing a 30-round AR-15 magazine during an interview with National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre.
Those groups point to section 7-2506.01 of the District of Columbia Code, which states, “No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm.”
