D.C. attorney general Irvin Nathan on Friday said he would decline to prosecute in the case involving the Sunday show host and any NBC staffers. In a letter to NBC’s attorney Lee Levine, Nathan wrote that after reviewing the matter, his office “has determined to exercise its prosecutorial discretion to decline to bring criminal charges against Mr. Gregory, who has no criminal record, or any other NBC employee based on the events associated” with the broadcast.

The next person with no criminal record prosecuted for a 30 round magazine has a nice civil rights/equal protection lawsuit waiting.

Gun control for thee, but not for me! I can hire armed guards and am above the law!

Gregory smuggled the clip into DC through a 3rd party. See the note from the DC AG:

The essence of a dictatorship or ruling oligarchy reigning under color of law: The law applies when and how they decide. All citizens are in violation of something and the law is used as an instrumentality of control over those they target or protect those they favor.

I think I remember reading about an ex marine traveling with with the same thing being prosecuted. He claims he didn’t even know the law. How is that fair?

Well Pierce Morgan, is prosecutorial discretion based upon ideology a defacto tyranny?

I have using my 1st amendment rights to let people know how I feel about a multitude of subjects. I have always been law abiding. My 30 round magazines have never been used for anything except to educate those I love on the beauty of the 2nd amendment. My magazines are not illegal in my state. When the jackboots come, do I have a Gregory exemption?
