No Pass For Buck (Though Gregory Got One)

posted on April 23, 2015

Colorado Sen. Ken Buck tweeted a picture of himself and Sen. Trey Gowdy in his office with an American flag-themed AR-15. As AR-15s are banned by the District of Columbia, a left-wing Colorado blog cried foul, and the D.C. Attorney General’s office sent the photo to the Metropolitan Police Department to investigate.

But the U.S. Capitol Police, who are charged with protecting Congress, were not impressed. They had given Buck permission to bring the cased, inoperable rifle into his office, in accordance with published Capitol Police regulations. Seems Buck is more familiar with D.C. firearms law than the AG’s office.

Contrast this with 2013, when NBC’s David Gregory displayed a banned 30-round magazine on “Meet The Press” (which is not covered by the exemptions due Congress), despite warnings from Metro Police. Metro Police then requested an arrest warrant, but the AG’s office declined to bring charges against Gregory.
