    @PolitixLisa How about a "That depends on what's done in this same situation with regular citizens" option.

    If the same call were to be made if Clyde Citizen were caught with the same magazine... yeah its a reasonable decision. IF the Average guy is charged... then it's crap.

    I'm glad because a law wasn't violated. But I'm still disappointed in the double standard with prosecution between the commoner and those of wealth or celebrity. Spend a little time in re-hab or do some community service work and you'll be fine.

    Exactly!! Prosecutorial discretion is a good thing when it's used fairly and properly. It is betraying the public trust when it isn't.

    Unless David Gregory brought his own magazine from home, NBC and every employee who acquired the magazine and possessed it before and after it was displayed on television would need to be charged as well. Good decision to drop the matter, when viewed with the intent that it was used.

    It seems some people posting here think this law should be absolute, which it shouldn't. It was clearly used for "demonstrable purposes," and not in an actual firearm.

    How, is this news again?

    So if anybody possessing such an item for sporting or self defense purposes should obviously be exempt from prosecution too? Typical hypocrisy, I'm going to violate the very law I want enforced bit it's ok because it's ME and my intentions are pure, despite the fact that I'm a criminal now by my own standards.

    @John_Matrix "Typical hypocrisy". Nonsense. You need a 30 round clip for sporting purposes? What sort of sport? Quick fire orgasms? You need it for self defense? You are either planning on killing lots of attackers or you are planning to miss a lot. Try aiming instead of using "spray and pray" like they do in the movies, John Matrix a.k.a. Commando. lol

    Go easy on Gregory, it's not like he works for a corporation who didn't have anything to gain from this deliberate and premeditated stunt, oh wait...

    "Washington D.C.'s attorney general said prosecuting Gregory wouldn't make citizens safer"

    This coming from the same people that feel that Eric Holder puting hundreds of guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels wasn't a violation of the law either...

    It's funny, or sad, that this administration will happily arm Mexican drug cartels but wants to place more restrictions on law abiding citizens. It's almost as if he's looking out for the criminals. I guess he considers them his base.

    @OhWiseOne - And how exactly did the government get them into the hands of the cartel's? Illegal distribution across the boarder, and distributing them into a country where guns are illegal? More and more hypocrisy from the administration. I bet the Mexican gov't is angry over that one, but you'll never hear about it from the MSM.

    i have read even hammers have been used to kill more than rifles. if this is true the only reason not aired is to hide the facts.

    @Quantummist "There were also 726 by Hand and Foot" Great, now they're going to require a concealed bicep license to carry your "gun show" in public.

    Yeah I was going to say that first stat you gave... sounds more like a weekend death toll in Chicago.

    ... on another note 1 of the person's outed by the journals newspaper report of gun owners was robbed in the thieves specifically targeted man's gun safe.

    Sorry but if this was normal citizen he would have been arrested. This is just "cherry picking" by political interest. I guess being treated equally under the law doesn't work there.

    I find funny how this moron is willing to violate the very laws he wants enforced. This only proves the point that such laws are entirely ineffective since criminals, like this guy, don't follow them. Gotta love it when the opposition makes your argument for you.

    I don't know why everyone gives the NRA a bad wrap. They aren't bad people. They aren't funded by big bankers. They are a special interest group who actually represent the millions of people they are supposed to represent. It seems to me that they fulfill all the requirements of being one of the few honest special interest groups in America.

    @AndrewEvans they "represent the millions of people they are supposed to represent."
    No offense but, are you that naive Andrew?
    74% of nra members support closing the gunshow lloophole and require background checks on ALL gun purchases. The NRA still refuses to support any such legislation. The NRA doesn't represent the interests of gun owners but they represent those of the gun manufacturers.
    As someone here is fond of saying:
    "Follow the money. Always follow the money."

    I didn't see anyone from the NRA go on nation TV waving an illegal high capacity mag for all to see. Is that the kind of "common sense" you were referring to?

    While I'm not an NRA member,(we had a disagreement a long time ago) I completely agree with their "Let them have an inch and they'll take a mile" attitude on the 2nd amendment.

    @mtkopf Trying to tie the NRA in with the rest of the corporate special interests is ignorance, pure and simple. I'm not going to doubt your statistics, but can you please cite your source?

    There's a lot of deception going on now. People are trying to water down the 2nd Amendment, and those in the NRA understand it. I would say that the average person has completely lost touch with the true intentions our founding fathers. They wanted to prevent things like this.

    “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”--Adolph Hitler

    They were definitely efficient at butchering my family. When considering gun control ask not what guns do but what they prevent.

    Spending the time and money on this issue is the most ridiculous thing I have heard in a substantial period of time. He was illustrating a point and was willing to do whatever it took. Was there ammunition in it? Was it inserted into a firearm? Did anyone get hurt? Use some sense, people...

    I'm trying to figure something out...does who gets charged with something include everyone or just those they dislike? I mean what if Rush Limbaugh did that?

    "Because it wouldn't make the District safer." I call BS on that one. I would bet if this were Fox's Chris Wallace, he'd be charged in a heartbeat. Another F00 getting away with it (F00: Friend 0f 0bama)...

    For David Gregory to be charged he would have had to have the rest of the gun and shot up the whole set, and then he would only be charged if he had accidentally hit a Democrat

    I'm Republican and I support Gun Control. My friends all Democrats and Liberal but they love to posses gun. Thta's make me sad :(

    Article is to vague. Doesn't say whether he owns it or whether he actually has the gun. Just shows him holding the magazine. Also, doesn't say if there are any bullets in there. Even if there were bullets, there is no way of firing that magazine without an actual gun.

    This is a waste of time.
