Posted on 12/27/2012 9:44:31 AM PST by jimbo123
National Rifle Association President David Keene said Thursday that NBC host David Gregory shouldn't be prosecuted for displaying an empty high capacity magazine on "Meet the Press," even though it may have violated Washington, D.C. law.

He has three angles in this opportunity: attack the media, attack the stupid law, or attack both.
By choosing to attack the stupid law, he’s directing the most attention to what should be changed: the felonious possession of a piece of plastic.
Me, I want David Gregory to be charged; but I think the NRA president took the right stance here given his public persona.
Of course. What other position is he supposed to take? He’s not a damn leftist. This is intellectual honesty.
Yup. Keeping DG a free man only proves that the Dems are racist.
Dems need to stop protecting his white privilege. Content of character vs. color of skin and such....
David, if you were in jail, a black teenager would already be in you!
Charge him, show up in court, get the law struck down as unConstitutional.
Works for me.
In Colorado they supported existing democRats and lost my support.
Gregory will get a pass on this and that can be used to expose the corrupt cops, prosecutors and judges that hold ruling elites above the law and serfs always in violation of the legal trickery and dishonesty of all law.
The NRA should use different operatives to destroy ALL the opposition on all fronts.
Ultimately, however, nothing will ever come of this no matter what any of us think and no matter what the law says. The DC police department and AG's office will never risk prosecuting an elite member of the media, no matter how serious the charge, only to have the media up their kiesters two months later with some made up "scandal".
The media will get their revenge if the DC police and AG do their job, bank on it.
Nope. The right gains nothing by being reasonable. A better lesson about guns laws would be if Gregory were perp walked into custody.
bttt. These Leftists are Alinskyites. Followers of an admirer of Lucifer. No Marquess of Queensbury rules for them.
I disagree. He’s a liberal so he believes in that law, and adding more like it. HE, and not normal people, should be the one to whom the law is applied to the extreme degree. WE never bought into it, he did.
Bullcrap. The left is always up in arms when they can make a case for hypocrisy on the right, you know, some conservative doing something they think is at odds with what conservatives believe. Intellectual honesty doesn't demand that you apply fairness to this guy, he fully supports the law he broke and tons of new ones.
The NRA isn’t the right, it’s an organization that has one political goal - advance the cause of gun rights. It, in fact, gains a lot by being reasonable, and though they are excoriated here for endorsing pro-gun Democrats, that strategy may well be our last firewall for gun control measures like Feinstein’s.
My 30 round magazine is bigger than Gregory’s 30 round magazine. In this case size does matter.
I disagree. The NRA says (correctly) that there are already enough gun laws and that those laws need to be enforced (and I disagree). In order for laws to be just, regardless of their merit, they need to be equally enforced. Either Gregory is charged and prosecuted, or anyone that was convicted under the same law should have their sentances commuted. That is intellectual honesty.
“The NRA isnt the right”
Nonsense. The NRA gets virtually no support from Dems. As for the few blue dogs posing as pro gun. So what?
What are you a paulite slug?
Law don’t apply to Democrats, which is why they keep making bad law. To get bad laws like this changed, Gregory needs to be convicted.
The DC chief had better watch his step on this one.
AND Gregory doesn’t need any help from the NRA. Put a sock in it Pierre!
After reading comments from the wise FReepers here. My vote is to prosecute Gregory to the fullest extent of the law, repeal the stupid law, but let Gregory finish his sentence.
Well Harry Reid does thank the NRA for 6 more filthy years
A Paulite slug?
Do you contribute any discussion or is that your shtick?
As for the rest of your gibberish, you’re wrong. But being wrong obviously has no bearing on your inability to realize you should shut your mouth.
Donne Trotter campaign clouded by felony gun charges
Dems ask no questions about Trotter’s gun charge
if Joe the Plumber did this , he’d be in GITMO by now.
The NRA is aiding and abetting the left anytime they agree with ANY “infringement” on a right that “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”. Otherwise they give government the go ahead to incrementally infringe law by law, regulation by regulation until there is no right remaining to be INFRINGED. PERIOD!
Gregory MUST be charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and given the max penalty as those who would deny us our Creator Given and Constitutionally protected rights do not deserve to be free.
Keene is the NRA President.
Did the NRA appoint Reid to the US Senate, or did the people of Nevada return him to office?
I forgot more about the issues discussed here than you will ever know.
Quite frankly, you know nothing about the NRA ..ya troll. They’re calling you over at daily Kos...
So many FReepers these days only seem to be able to engage in debate by calling those that disagree with them liberals or paulbots.
Intellectual superiority is one thing no one would ever accuse you of having.
Anyway, you’ve clearly got me beat with your vast knowledge, so carry on here. I’ve got better things to do than waste my time on vile malcontents.
Your comment makes one-track minds explode.
And if Harry Reid returns the favor by knocking this bill down a few pegs, the utility of a one-issue organization endorsing both parties will still be lost on the anti-NRA crowd.
This place makes me sad lately.
The Libs will very rarely defend a Conservative.
Us Conservatives will take the high road more often.....
That’s the problem...they are ruthless; we are not.
I get angry at times, but I try to keep the world in perspective. I'm not perfect and no one I know is either. To blame the ills of US gun laws on the NRA is not only irrational, but illogical and ignorant as well. Extremists are rarely successful in any endeavor. The sooner the all or nothing crowd learns that, the better chance we all have of attaining the country the Founding Fathers foresaw.
It takes me a bit to get pretty agitated...because I'm by my very nature easy going, conservative in my actions and thought.
I brush off many libs...because they are either too dumb to bother with..or complete idiots.
NRA helped out and he will thank him by pushing for gun control, nice
How? Who did the NRA force to vote for Reid?
Is that supposed to have meaning?
