Above the Law: NBC Criminal David Gregory Won’t Be Prosecuted for Breaking DC Law

Posted by on Jan 11, 2013 at 5:15 pm

He’s a journalist, so obviously he exists many levels beyond mere mortals.

NBC journalist David Gregory won’t face charges for displaying a high-capacity ammunition magazine on his “Meet the Press” news show, prosecutors announced Friday.

The city’s office of attorney general, which handles low-level crimes, said criminal charges wouldn’t serve the public’s best interests even though possession of the magazine — capable of holding up to 30 rounds of ammunition — was clearly against the law. In a letter to NBC’s lawyer, D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan also said he recognized that the device was intended as a prop to provoke public discussion on gun control following the Connecticut school massacre.

Clearly against the law, but hey, he’s David Gregory. He gets to interview Obama! The same guy who wants to make it illegal (by any means necessary) for you to possess that same kind of magazine.

We do live in Two Americas.

Update: Here is the charging letter, via Andy.

    then charges will be dismissed against all those who were prosecuted before a friend of the AG was cited? I’d appeal, and hit the DC Gov’t for atty’s fees. One law/one rule for all. Elitist C’Suckers should be held to the same as everyone else

    Comrades rules don’t apply to the annointed class. Now get back to work and pay those taxes there is nothing to see here.
