Liberal Elite Media Double Standard … NBC’s David Gregory Will Not be Procecuted by his Pal DC Attorney General Irvin Natha and Family Friend
Could there be a better example of judicial double standards, media bias and conflict of interest that the David Gregory possession of a high capacity gun magazine and his braking of DC gun laws? If you break the law, make sure you are a Democrat Lib propagandist …
What a joke this country and its legal system have become. It has become obvious, that if you have the money for the best attorneys, can sell your story to the media for $’s and have the right friends in high places, you are subject to a different set of rules that they rest of us. This past December on TV, NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ host David Gregory held up a high capacity gun magazine and broke the DC gun laws. However, D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan issued a letter explaining why there will be no prosecution of David Gregory despite a finding that there was a clear violation of the law. HUH? Justice is supposed to be blind … hardly.

Full Letter can be read HERE.
Having carefully reviewed all of the facts and circumstances of this matter, as it does in every case involving firearms-related offenses or any other potential violation of D.C. law within our criminal jurisdiction, OAG 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 December 23,2012 broadcast. OAG has made this determination, despite the clarity of the violation of this important law, because under all of the circumstances here a prosecution would not promote public safety in the District of Columbia nor serve the best interests of the people of the District to whom this office owes its trust.
So David Gregory was in full and complete violation of the gun laws of the District of Columbia but will not be prosecuted and held accountable. UNREAL. Don’t ever think that there are not a different set of rules and laws for the elite and the rest of “We the People”. Does any one honestly think that if a private citizen did the same thing that they would not have been arrested and prosecuted? What if an unsuspecting individual was passing through DC and was unaware of the law? How will this precedent by the DC prosecutor affect future attempted prosecutions? All a dependent will need to do is reference that the DC attorney general did not prosecute a media host, why should they be held to a different standard.
DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01
(b) No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The term large capacity ammunition feeding device shall not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition..”
UPDATE I: Good grief and now this …. Legal Insurrection is reporting that David Gregory and wife knew the D.C. Attorney General. Yup, no conflict of interest here. It’s good to know people. What would have happened if it was FOX News Sean Hannity or Bill O’Reilly who has done the same?
It further undermines public confidence in such decisions to find out that Nathan knew Gregory and his wife, high-powered attorney Beth Wilkinson.
Anne dug up the connection in which in 2011 Nathan and Wilkinson participated together in a charity mock trial for the Washington, D.C. Shakespeare Theatre Company.
