Washington Police Investigating 'Meet the Press' Incident Washington Post

Police in Washington, D.C., are investigating an incident on NBC’s "Meet the Press," during which host David Gregory displayed what he described as a high-capacity ammunition magazine, reports The Washington Post.

Gregory was interviewing National Rifle Association Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre when he held an object in his hand, describing it as a magazine that could hold 30 bullets.

The D.C. code, in its firearms regulations, stipulates, "No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device," regardless of whether it's attached to a firearm, the story says.

Questions about whether the incident violated the code came up online after the TV show aired, the article notes.
