WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Officials in Washington said it was "a very close decision" but NBC's David Gregory will not be charged with possessing a large capacity ammunition magazine.

Irvin Nathan, attorney general for the District of Columbia, notified NBC in a letter dated Friday Gregory was in violation of the law Dec. 23 when, during an interview on "Meet the Press," he displayed "a magazine capable of holding up to 30 rounds of ammunition."

During an interview with National Rifle Association Executive Director Wayne LaPierre -- one week after the massacre of 20 children and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. -- Gregory also held up an ammunition magazine capable of holding five to 10 rounds of ammunition.

Nathan said the larger of the two magazines meets the definition of a Washington law against possession of "any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm" or loaded.

We're looking forward for Dick Gregory.

Who could have guessed that, in light of Obama's resolve to get tougher with gun laws?


Seventy kinds of stupid on the part of Dick Gregory and his entire staff and anyone else from NBC who may have been involved in this fiasco.

However, I am betting Gregory won't suffer too much for this. After all, it's not like he's poor or unconnected to politicians who fear media or un-white.

Does the new tough stance apply only teachers, not the 1%?

Wonder what would have happened if Gregory had brandished medicinal marijuana on TV instead of a gun.
