Emily Miller, our favorite Washington Times reporter in regards to guns, reports that the DC Metropolitan Police Department won’t be arresting David Gregory of NBC for bringing a high capacity AR box magazine into the District contrary to DC laws and the fact that they’ve arrested several people in the district for the same crime;
While Mr. Gregory got away without being arrested or going to jail, the police arrested 105 other people in 2012 on charges that included possession of “high capacity” feeding devices.
One of those cases was James Brinkley, an Army Veteran and federal employee, who was handcuffed, arrested and jailed for possessing two so-called high-capacity magazines and an unregistered firearm. The OAG refused to drop the charges, despite overwhelming evidence that he was legally transporting through Washington.
The police have sent the results of their very cursory investigation into Gregory’s dastardly deed to the prosecutor’s office “for a determination of the prosecutorial merit of the case”. Of course, while the prosecutor mulled over James Brinkley’s case, he sat in a jail cell, but we can’t have pretty-boy Gregory rotting in jail while the wheels of justice make their slow rounds like they do for the proletariat.
The anti-gun media doesn’t want to follow the laws that have already been written and the law enforcement community doesn’t want to enforce the laws that have already been written, but they all want more laws that they won’t enforce, until they finally get all of our guns.
