I would say it's a hypocrisy problem.

No matter which or what, he will never be charged with anything, as he is one of the elites, above-the-laws, and works for NBC.

He can always claim 1st amendment rights as a member of the press.........................

It’s all three. Ape-face Gregory could use 6 months in the DC jail to ponder his thoughts about gun control.

Its not a journalism problem because journalism has morphed into entertainment formed around sensationalism used to push political propaganda.

Quentin Tarantino type fantasy can become plausible when CBS or CNN runs it at 6:00PM. A marketing scam like Barack Obama can start to seem real and his message of nothing becomes tangible when enough editorial license is taken by the "journalists".

Legally, isn’t this no different than the idiot bringing a Gram of Cocaine onto the show?

Actually, this is probably worse for Gregory, because at least with the Cocaine, he could claim that it was something else. In this case, there isn’t much left to doubt.

He was clearly holding a 30 round AR15/M4 GI Mag. (I have lots of them) I wonder where he got it, and what he did with it after the taping for the show was done.

David Gregory broke the law and should be held accountable. Otheriwse he’s just making the point that we’re not enforcing existing laws so it’s pointless to pass any new ones.

Please put me on his jury! It’s ass-banging jail for him if I have anything to say about it.

(Yawn)

For the record, I am totally pro 2A, but an empty mag used as a prop is hardly worthy of discussion. I’d feel the same if the mag was loaded, as long as the firearm wasn’t in the room. DC’s gun laws may be silly, but getting upset over this is even worse. Yes I hate all the gun-grabbers crawling out of the woodwork, but this story is a joke.

Trying to make something out of nothing is a libtard tactic, and one’s reduces credibility.

If that had been you or me with a mag on the street corner would the cops take this long to decide to arrest us?

Double standard.

Ding ding ding! That's a winner!

That and they perceive themselves as above the law, above the rest of us. They "know best" what's needed for the "little people" (that would be us in their eyes). But they don't think they need to be held to the same standard.

Its a law - agree with it or not - it is the law. If he held up a bag of heroin or an iPad playing child porn, would there even be any discussion over charging him or not?

It’s really quite simple: “reporters” consider themselves, like Dem politicians, to be above the laws that govern the rest of us.

This happened in Canada, but remember the story about the dad who was arrested and strip searched by the police for possession of a firearm because his 4 year old daughter drew a picture of her father using a gun to kill "monsters and bad guys". The father had no gun. He did own a nerf gun. Neither the school nor the police apologized for their jackboot tactics.

Gregory is lucky to be alive after letting such a dangerous contraband weapon touch his skin! Seems like a few years in prison will be necessary to make him realize the severity of his actions.

Orders will come down from the communists empire of King Obama to back off. Nothing will happen to Gregory or NBC.

When you have a major news organization controlled by the government, it’s a corruption problem.

There are no "laws" made by the pretend "government" of the District of Columbia that any US citizen is bound to respect.

This particular "law" was not made by Congress, which has the power, and the responsibility, to legislate for DC "in all cases whatsoever".
