    Finally Obtained: David Gregory Arrest Warrant Affidavit

    Finally Obtained: David Gregory Arrest Warrant Affidavit

    Cops wanted Gregory charged with illegal possession of a high-capacity ammunition magazine, but D.C. prosecutors nixed the request.

    This is likely the final chapter in the saga of our two-year long fight to obtain important documents regarding the non-prosecution of David Gregory for possessing on Meet the Press an illegal high-capacity ammunition magazine.

    The short version is that the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department warned NBC News that it could not possess an actual high-capacity magazine, but NBC News went ahead and did it anyway. The MPD recommended a warrant for Gregory’s arrest, but that request was nixed by the D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan because — my paraphrase — Gregory was just too nice a guy and had no other criminal intent.

    That attitude stood in stark contrast to the D.C. Attorney General’s vigorous prosecution of other lesser-known people who also were nice people and had no other criminal intent, but violated D.C.’s gun laws.

    We served a Freedom of Information Act request but D.C. held back numerous documents. So we filed suit.

    We were assisted by attorneys Jim Peterson and Ramona Cotca of Judicial Watch, who did a great job. Everybody give them a round of applause.

    D.C. eventually produced more documents, but refused to give us the Arrest Warrant Affidavit. We eventually won a court decision, and today D.C. produced the Affidavit, with some personal information redacted. (Affidavit Below)

    The Affidavit demonstrates the facts as to NBC News’ open defiance of the law. This was no innocent error. Yet no prosecution.

    Here is an excerpt from the Affidavit:

    The point of all this was not that we wanted David Gregory prosecuted. We didn’t.

    There is no reason for mere possession of an unloaded high-capacity magazine, not to be used in the commission of some other crime and far away from actual ammunition, to be a crime. But it is in D.C.

    That needs to change, but it probably will not, until people like David Gregory and other high profile citizens start having it enforced as to them.

    I disagree; I *want* Gregory prosecuted to the full extent of the law. DC has very strict anti-weapons laws. I want the book thrown at him – just like it would have been if he were any normal person.

    MILLER: Exclusive — Shock verdict — Mark Witaschek guilty of possessing muzzleloader bullets in D.C.
    And this is what happens when the DC police and your ex-wife don’t like you, no prior record and all.
