The NRA and the SAF should take up Gregory's cause and represent him to show how assinine and restrictive the DC laws are. If it were one of us, we'd be screaming for the same. At the least, a public statement should be made in support of the right of Gregory to possess the magazine even if we don't agree with his position.

Why is David Gregory not under arrest?
I have not read any of the 75 comments on this, but I hope the answere to your question is:

I know what I think .... and I have little reservation about voicing it. NO.... it's not "hate" ... that's entirely BS. You have no clue what I think, have made numerous bad assumptions not only here, but in other threads as well .... and not only at me, but many others as well. I don't have any reservations about what I think and believe, and don't need you 're-interpreting' them in the light you want to put them in , and twisting them into things never said nor implied.

In the meantime.... Gregory and NBC KNEW it was illegal, and did it anyway. If that's not flaunting the law, I don't know what is. If you have a CC rally in DC... and everyone is holding up a 30 rd mag, I would expect all of them to get the same "treatment" as Dick Gregory, or vice versa. Because whether you like it or not.... this country "is" founded on equal justice and treatment under the law. It applies "equally" to everyone. You don't chose "who to apply it too", based upon their political stance, nor their job, nor anything else.
The point on the school is.... he's a hypocrite... while questioning and challenging someone that it's even practical to put armed guards in schools, he sure makes sure his are attending schools with armed guards. But, I have this doubt that you even watched the interview.
My grandkids go to public schools... and there are armed SO's in all of them..... so the sarcasism he shows about the subject, also shows his stupidity about it and that not only are there public schools that have armed guards, but allow CC (such as here) or even allow Teachers to CC at school (Utah and Texas that I know of). So how practical is it , per Dick Gregory's question... totally... and sometime his research staff might provide him with that information so he doesn't make a complete fool of himself on TV, ........ but oh..... he's just pushing an agenda anyway, so facts only get in the way of the message.
You seem to be the mostly "generalizing" ... and "stereotyping" people ..... and don't have a clue what they think, and I'm not sure you care ..... as your objective just seems to be to stir things up .... ... typically aiming your comments AT them, rather than to the subject. Why not try making your point of view known on the subject at hand, and why you think it's sound, and stand on your own two feet.... rather than jabbing at other people senselessly with distorted and fabricated comments like your one to me.

Yes, I saw the interview. Anyway. I can only go by your reply to get a feeling for how you feel. Don't know why you keep bringing up him being a hyporcrit. Just don't see how in the world that is releveant to a LEO seeing an action and arresting someone. Maybe the judge can be swayed by hypocrisy when sentencing....but not the LEO when arresting.

Do you want me go down the list of name of folks that have been arrested for domestic viomence, DUI's, and other crimes that are famous. It does happen. In fact as far as the legal system it seems that just as many unknown folks get by with murder and other crimes all the time just because they have a good lawyer, not just the Gregory's of this world.
I am not stereotyping you and if you feel like that well.....nothing I can really do about it.
And I think it is a poor analogy to compare Gregory and a rally in DC. In DC you would have a police presecence and they would be able to see and examine the magazines and then make an arrest. That is a world of difference than Gregory displaying this on TV. As it has been mentioned before, the police are investigating it. But, I don't think that the possible crime is severe enough to warrant an arrest based on a video. He is not a mass murderer abuot to flee the country.
I would apologize for what you think I feel about you but I won't. I wasn't generalizing you or steereotypingyin you with anyone. Happy New Year!

Only responding to the notion that he should be arrested. In many instances an officer can't make
an arrest for a misdemeanor unless it was actually witnessed by the officer. I have no clue if that is DC law or not.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

Remember folks "all pigs are equal, just some are more equal". Gregory is just one of the "more equal" elites.

This is the best idea I've seen yet on the topic!

And in most jurisdictions, conspiracy to commit a misdemeanor is a felony. FWIW

Emily Miller from the Washington Times has picked up the story:
MILLER: If you
Of interest, there were 105 prosecutions last year in DC for "large capacity magazines". That doesn't really sound like a "seldom prosecuted crime to me".
It is a good read.
