Judicial Watch recently obtained an affidavit showing there was probable cause for David Gregory to be arrested for holding up an illegal high-capacity magazine on Meet the Press in December 2012. Gregory, who was hosting that show, was interviewing NRA president Wayne LaPierre about the 2012 Newtown shooting when he held up the magazine, but he was not prosecuted for violating DC’s laws on high-capacity magazines. Judicial Watch and Legal Insurrection jointly filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DC government to obtain documents regarding Gregory’s non-prosecution.

See what Tom Fitton had to say about this affidavit below, as quoted in the article:
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton thinks otherwise: “This affidavit for an arrest warrant of David Gregory shows that NBC News thinks it is above the law,” he said in a statement. “If David Gregory were not a major media personality and not then employed by NBC, he would have almost certainly been arrested and prosecuted for possessing the illegal high magazine clip.”
