As we pointed out earlier today, a number of tweeters noted that Meet the Press is taped in Washington DC, where it is illegal to possess a high-capacity ammunition magazine.

Here’s David Gregory on Meet the Press this morning (view the video here).

There is no exception in the law for media. Unless that is a fake clip, it appears that Gregory violated DC’s law.
