Legal Insurrection finally obtained David Gregory’s affidavit from the DC government. This comes after a two-year legal battle between Legal Insurrection and the DC government for documents regarding Gregory’s non-prosecution after Gregory held up a high-capacity magazine on his then-show Meet the Press. Legal Insurrection worked with Judicial Watch to file a FOIA request and lawsuit against the DC government to obtain these documents.

Learn more about the purpose of this all from this quote from William Jacobson, as featured in the article:
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.
