Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- Fox News is reporting that DC Police are serving a search warrant in for the home of David Kokesh–a supposedly pro-gun rights activists who held a pump shotgun in Freedom Plaza and appeared to load it.

NBC News host David Gregory has yet to be charged or have his home searched after he held up a “high capacity” magazine on the set of “Meet the Press” on December 23rd. The magazine he held is illegal to “possess, sell, or transfer” in the District of Columbia.

The District of Columbia Attorney General did not prosecute Gregory and said in a letter to NBC’s attorney Lee Levine, that the his office “determined to exercise its prosecutorial discretion to decline to bring criminal charges against Mr. Gregory, who has no criminal record, or any other NBC employee based on the events associated.”

Police believe Kokesh’s actions broke a law, and they are searching his home. The DC Police Chief said: “You can transport [a gun] through the District of Columbia… but there are rules for that transport. What [Kokesh] did… if in fact that was a real firearm [with] real ammunition, would be a violation of the law.”

Since the District of  Columbia v. Heller decision struck down DC’s gun ban in 2008, gun owners have been legally able to keep guns in their homes and in their places of business. And it is legal to transport firearms as long as they are being transported in accordance with local, state, and federal law.

    1. I like Adam but brandishing a firearm is not a good idea. I think he just gave the gun grabbers some excuses to use against us.

    2. If “brandishing a firearm” is considered “not a good idea” among gun owners, the Second Amendment is already dead.

      Or am I missing something in the phrase, “and bear arms” in that Amendment?

    3. Is there anyone, in the gun rights community, that didn’t see the “persecution” of Kokesh coming from miles away. He gets an A+ for nads, not so much for brains. First, this stunt(and that is exactly what it was) is counterproductive because it suggests that gun owners are either unstable or unlawabiding. Neither is true. Second, it was a given that one law enforcement agency or another was going to go after him. Just because they allowed Gregory to display his “contraband” doesn’t mean the elitists will turn the other cheek for an actual believer in our Constitution. What is needed, and this goes for many issues our nation is facing, is a massive protest march on the Capitol. There are several organizations that could pull it off, the Oath Keepers come to mind. And, we should leave the firearms home until the shootin’ war starts.

    4. If the stupid people that caused this raid would have looked at the blue screen on his shotgun add, they would have known that was a photoshop picture. Of course, they refuse to charge the felon that has a fraudulent birth certificate and selective service regiatration online.
