    I wish I had such connections so that I, too, could get the favorable "prosecutorial discretion".

    Does him getting a pass really surprise anyone?

    Two sets of rules. One for "we the people" and another for the "elite."

    I think the guy should be prosecuted. He broke the law and therefore needs to pay the consequences.

    And yet, the whole flap shows the inanity of it all. Had his broadcast office simply been 10mi west (into VA), there would be nothing for the gun-haters to grouse about. Quite simply, nobody was harmed by merely showing the dang thing ... and everyone knows it. It's statutory criminality, not inherent criminality with objective, actual harm to others.

    That said: I'm sure he knew the legalities before he obtained it. If he didn't before, he surely does now.

    Disagree on the bye, for such a class of persons. Unknown whether it was a bye due to his connections, caste or power, or due to the DA having some reasoning skills (on the inane concept) kick in. Who's to say.

    No surprise at all. It's a dumb law but they either should enforce it or get rid of it. Watch the next guy get caught with a magazine and use the "David Gregory Defense". That would be "I'm a main stream media Liberal and I don't have to follow your stinkin laws".

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    They asked for permission, it was denied, and then they did it anyway.

    When I was a kid, if I screwed up, I got in trouble. If it was an accident, usually no big deal, but if I openly and intentionally defied my parents rules or will... it was not pretty.

    Do I think what he did should be illegal? No, but that's not the point. He intentionally and brazenly defied the law, and broadcast it on national TV(not too many viewers, but still national TV). How can they not prosecute him? It is sending a clear message that it is ok to break the law, as long as you are a celebrity or have powerful friends. Yeah, great way to encourage law and order in your community mr DA.

    +1 on the above.

    If Gregory (or NBC) asked if it was against the law and was informed that it indeed was against the law...........and he did it anyway..........why NOT prosecute?

    Bet if I did the same I'd be paying for it with more than just egg on my face.
