An article at WCNC.com details David Gregory’s 2013 affidavit, which Judicial Watch and Legal Insurrection recently received after filing a FOIA lawsuit against the Washington Metropolitan Police Department. This lawsuit was a response to Gregory’s non-prosecution after Gregory held up a high-capacity magazine during a Meet the Press interview with NRA president Wayne LaPierre in December 2012. In Washington, D.C., it is prohibited by law to have a 10-bullet magazine, empty or full, but Gregory was never prosecuted for illegally possessing one since his wife is friends with DC’s attorney general.

Below is a summary of the affidavit, as quoted in the article:
According to the affidavit, an NBC editor exchanged several e-mails with authorities who informed the editor that possessing the magazine would violate the law and be a misdemeanor. Police recommended using a photo instead of the magazine during the interview.
