Shut up and take my money

Seriously, who do I give money to to make this happen:

Legal Insurrection and Judicial Watch file suit to obtain David Gregory gun law violation documents

Judicial Watch, a leading government open records organization, announced today that it has filed suit on behalf of Legal Insurrection to obtain documents regarding David Gregory’s violation of the District of Columbia gun laws and the investigation which led to the decision of the District of Columbia Attorney General not to prosecute

    Read Emily Millers article in the Washington Times. Seems the left hand of the coverup didn’t know what the right hand was doing. So they sent Miller a document that they told JW wasn’t avaliable. And viceaversa. Much hilarity.

    Nobody.

    Everyone in a position to supply that information is on David Gregory’s side.

  3. nk Says:

    ? It was only a scary capacity magazine. No gun, no ammo. Yeah, he should not have been prosecuted and the people who made the decision not to prosecute him should not be made afraid to not prosecute again.

    (I know, I know. “It’s not fair, mommy. Becky’s piece of cake is bigger”.)

  4. Wolfwood Says:

    We should be careful here. Either we have a constitutional right to such magazines, or the state has the authority to regulate them. If the former, then we shouldn’t support the prosecution simply out of “fairness” or because we don’t like the person. If it’s the latter, then we’ve already lost the argument.

    Should Gregory be prosecuted, we RKBA folks should rightly work to support him in his defense.

    @ Wolfwood: I think you’re making it unnecessarily complicated. We DO have a constitutional right to bear arms. There are no “ifs” “ands” or “buts” about it. To imply that ANY state or governing body has the right to decided which, how many, and what sort of arms and all the implements therein is in complete defiance of the meaning of the 2nd Amendment, as well as the even baser motivation of self preservation.

    That being said, what Gregory did was flaunt DC’s gun magazine laws in order to press a point which ALONE was illegal. That DC routinely prosecutes law-abiding citizens for similarly nonsensical laws makes his getting off Scott-free unethical and unconstitutional as the law shall not be applied unequally.

    @MrSatyre

    The remedy for injustice isn’t injustice for everyone, but an end to the injustice. If it’s wrong to prosecute a regular person for this, then it’s wrong even to prosecute a hypocrite like Gregory.

  7. Garrett Lee Says:

    The proper recipe is to prosecute, and watch as the jury nullifies.

    Not going to happen, I know…

  8. nk Says:

    Maybe Gregory got off because he’s a celebrity but think of having to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he possessed an illegal magazine.

    Perry Mason: Lt. Tragg, where’s the magazine?
    Lt. Tragg: We couldn’t find it.
    Perry Mason: Watcha got?
    Lt. Tragg: A video showing the defendant in possession of the magazine.
    Perry Mason: Alright, pull that magazine out of the video and load more than ten rounds in it for me, would you?

    But you get the picture.

    This news just made my day!

    I doubt that Gregory was the only NBC staffer to handle that magazine, so perhaps a half-dozen or more NBC people are at risk for violation of the D.C. magazine ban.

  10. Craig B Says:

    The point isn’t to prosecute Gregory, but to highlight and hammer them on Equal Protection under the law. If you are going to prosecute citizens then they have to prosecute EQUALLY. No ‘get out of jail free’ cards for the ‘special people’…

    It’s like the press never cares about people dying in remote places of the earth until one of their OWN takes a slug and THEN they get all up in arms over the violence.

  11. MJM Says:

    Whoa! I love it. Been sayin’ “But David Gregory is still free!” and now that might change. That would be change you could believe in.
    Set a law in motion, and watch out: it could come back to bite you.
    So: less law.
    Brad’s point is great: Some munchkin ran out and found the magazine from one of his buddies. “Anybody know a gun nut?” “Well, yeah, I sort of do.” “Does he have an AR14, or 15 or whatever?” Well, maybe.” “Well, see if you can get one of those big clips from him.”
    We should not take the David Gregory instance to seriously; it’s good propaganda for our side, but no one is serious about prosecuting the guy—I think.

  12. dustydog Says:

    You’ve got it backward Wolfwood. Everyone should be able to cite and rely upon the legal decisions that kept Gregory out of jail. Everyone should get the same privileges and immunities. Pushing DC to defend itself gets them on record. Gregory will never be prosecuted – worrying about that is like worrying that DC will enforce drunk driving laws against Senators, Congressmen and Councilmen.

  13. Tam Says:

    The quickest remedy for an unjust law is to enforce it uniformly upon the powerful and the powerless alike.

    I would also like a gold house and a rocket car.

  14. Pakkinpoppa Says:

    Gold house and rocket car.

    As soon as I win the PowerMillions and MegaBall lotteries, I’ll work on them for you, Tam.

    Or, maybe just a sack full of Green Stamps to take to your favorite Gun Merchant.
