There are so many levels of moronic absurdity in this story it beggars the imagination, as the right wing screams in unison (they always scream in unison) for Meet the Press host David Gregory to be prosecuted and sent to jail for using an AR-15 magazine as a prop in his interview with NRA chief Wayne LaPierre: What if David Gregory Went to Jail Over His Gun Prop?
They’ve screamed loud enough that Washington DC police are investigating the incident, and David Gregory — who is actually one of the best friends the wingnuts have on mainstream TV, often giving his right wing guests incredibly easy treatment — may end up going to jail. The sense of weird, twisted glee in the right wing blogosphere is palpable; Gregory dared to criticize the insane policies of the NRA, and for that he must be destroyed.
Of course, these are the same bloggers and pundits who want no restrictions at all on ownership of these lethal magazines by people with real guns that kill.
It’s a first: the very first time right wingers have actually called for gun laws to be enforced. The mean-spirited, irrational wingnut GOTCHA! mentality writ large.
