The Washington Metropolitan Police Department informed NBC’s “Meet the Press” that it could not use a high capacity magazine on the show, ABC News reports. Still, host David Gregory showed such a magazine on last Sunday’s show and MPD is now investigating the matter.
Gwendolyn Crump, director of the Office of Communications for the Washington Metropolitan Police Department, told ABC News, “NBC contacted MPD inquiring if they could utilize a high capacity magazine for their segment. NBC was informed that possession of a high capacity magazine is not permissible and their request was denied. This matter is currently being investigated.”
Another Washington DC police officer and spokesperson Tisha Gant said the situation was “being investigated,” but would give no other details including what exactly is under investigation.
