Reuters: The network had contacted the police department prior to Sunday's broadcast "inquiring if they could use a high capacity magazine for the segment," police spokesman Araz Alali said on Wednesday.
"NBC was informed that possession of a high-capacity magazine was not permissible and their request was denied."
Alali, the police spokesman, declined to elaborate on the investigation into NBC.
Meet the Press host David Gregory knowingly broke gun laws live on NBC after police denied their request for an exception.
Will there be any repercussions for this blatant disregard for the law?
