David Gregory Interview Theatre

Perhaps because it's a holiday week, no one here has brought up David Gregory's "Meet the Press" interview with Wayne LaPierre (or as one anchor in my market misspoke it, "Wayne LaPrairie") - and the empty ammunition clip Gregory broke out.
Never mind whether it was legal or illegal to possess it in the District. Gregory clearly did NOT need to do that in an interview. A photo would have sufficed - if even that was necessary. Methinks Tim Russert would have settled for that.
Where are we going - working-class children being brought to the desk, so politicians can tell them personally what their tax proposals will do?

The weak part to me is that NBC asked if they could show the thing on set, were told no, and still used it.
So then why ask?

I was with you until you mentioned Tapper. He is a tool. But certainly David Gregory has no business being on air with a network. He belongs more in a market like De Moines where he can anchor car accidents and murders (sorry, Des Moines)...Let's see this for what it is, though. Who cares that Gregory had a prop? There was no gun so it was harmless. It was simply a ploy by the right wing to deflect attention away from the real problem, and that is criminals getting their hands on weapons that can launch an incredible amount of bullets in a few seconds. These guns are designed for military and police use and they are made to kill a large number of people in a short amount of time. They have no business in the public arsenal.
