    ATF head, D.C. police chief challenged on selective magazine ban enforcement​

    B. Todd Jones, the Acting Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and Cathy Lanier, Chief of the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., are being challenged on selective enforcement of the District’s ban on so-called “large capacity ammunition feeding devices” for semi-automatic firearms. This column will serve as a follow-up to an earlier request asking who authorized violation of the ban, after NBC’s David Gregory produced a magazine during his Dec. 23 “Meet the Press” interview with National Rifle Association head Wayne LaPierre.

    That request was documented by Gun Rights Examiner and sent to the respective agencies via email. Because the responses to very specific questions created more questions than answers, this column will now be used to transmit an open letter to the two law enforcement executives:

    Dear Director Jones and Chief Lanier,

    A crime has been committed, your agencies are involved, and someone is lying. Those are serious charges, but fortunately, they’re demonstrable. And until it’s cleared up, the actions and reputations of your respective agencies will continue meriting public scrutiny.

    As you know, NBC’s David Gregory displayed an ammunition magazine that is banned under D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01, and that a conviction on this charge can result in a maximum fine of $1,000 and/or up to one year imprisonment.

    That’s pretty serious.

    The new leftist words for cronyism = prosecutorial discretion. Any questions?
