Laws are for the little people, the commoners like all of us. Even thought the law in D.C. states “No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm” Mr. Gregory walks among the free. The D.C. attorney general Irvin B. Nathan released a letter stating his reason not to pursue charges on Friday December 11th. In the letter Nathan goes on to state “Influencing our judgment in this case, among other things, is our recognition that the intent of the temporary possession and short display of the magazine was to promote the First Amendment purpose of informing an ongoing public debate about firearms policy in the United States, especially while this subject was foremost in the minds of the public” Well isn’t that great! Since it’s an important subject pertaining to the country I think we need to have a “Million Magazine March” in D.C. since it’s our First Amendment and Second Amendment rights and all.

But what does “among other things” mean? Well turns out old friendships die hard. What happens when someone out of our class is caught possessing a scary “high-capacity magazine” like the one Mr Gregory flashed all over national tv? Well we should ask Nathan Haddad.

This goes on to once again prove that there are two types of laws in this nation, one set for the rich and powerful, and another set for the not so privileged like us. Stories like this make the name of my blog pretty fitting!

    Need to add that 112 people were charged with the same crime in 2012 alone.
