Ken Buck Poses With Illegal Assault Weapon?

  • 17 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Freshman Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado Tweeted this photo of himself yesterday:

gowdybuckgun

This is a photo of Rep. Buck with fellow Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina. The rifle they are holding is an AR-15 that Buck identifies as his own.

The problem? Assuming this photo was taken inside the boundaries of Washington, D.C., Ken Buck, the former district attorney of Weld County, Colorado, is now a lawbreaker. The AR-15 rifle is banned in the District of Columbia as an assault weapon, and gun magazines are limited to 10 rounds. As you can clearly see, Buck’s AR-15 (illegal in D.C.) is fitted with a 30-round magazine (illegal in D.C.). Under D.C.’s strict gun laws, weapons must also be registered–and obviously, you can’t do that if the weapon is already illegal to possess. All of these laws remain in effect even if your gun is painted with American flags.

Two years ago, NBC News’ David Gregory narrowly escaped prosecution in Washington, D.C., simply for bringing an unloaded 30 round magazine onto the set of his news broadcast. Short of a really good explanation we can’t think of right now–or, we suppose, the possibility this photo was taken across the Potomac in Virginia–we assume the D.C. Metropolitan Police will want to have a little chat with Rep. Buck about this.

    1. the tie does warrant a complaint to the fashion police or at least a citizen’s arrest.

      As for what Gowdy is up to:  don’t ask, don’t tell. You need to cut him some slack; he’s been working hard on Benghazi.

    1. You can’t be a Real Republican(tm) these days until you’ve posed fondling your muzzle for the rest of the titillatied ammosexual world to see . . .

  1. The legislators have different levels of criminal fault.  Pretty much anything they do is allowed, as long as they do not kill each other on camera.

  2. He’s already demonstrated more than sufficient stupidity to tweet himself doing something illegal. Hope some enterprising person will make this a headache for him.

  3. Ammosexuals in love. Aren’t they adorable? Next they’ll want “special rights.”

    God what a couple of dorks. Gowdy’s bizarre coif barely conceals the point atop his empty head.

    As for his hideous jacket, somewhere in Santa Anita tonight a race horse shivers in its stall.

  4. Also, I think the dope next to Tres Gaudy fondling the business end of that hot piece of “manhood” is Boz Scaggs’ long-lost dimwitted brother.

  5. Caption this photo:

    “Hey, Bucky….imagine if we were two black guys holding this AR-15…how long do you think it would be before the police shot us in the back?”

    “That’s a good one, Trey-Trey….I’d say less than a minute, tops.”

    “S’good to be white, Bucky.”

    “Shore is.”

  6. Real Republicans(tm) of the early 20th century ??? :

    No RINOs here, baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (but several future melon farmers, I reckon?)
