On Second Thought (and as a Second-Best Proposal), David Gregory Should Be Arrested and Prosecuted

He used it as a prop, not as a weapon, and the only reason some are going after him, as some want Piers Morgan deported, is because they want to suppress freen speech in the gun control debate.

How it that different from any of the other examples given. What if I walk into DC with a rifle and bullets in hand to be used as a prop? The law doesn't say anything about use, just possession.

If you were on a news show broadcast from DC, using the exact same device used by Gregory, but to make the opposite point on gun control, you would not be arrested. on the other hand if you walked into the city with a loaded rifle you probably would be because your claim that it is only a prop would be dubious.

The Law prohibits its possession, whether it's being used as a weapon or a prop. Or a paperweight.

And we don't want Mr. Morgan deported to inhibit free speech. We just want him to be happy; and being here in America clearly makes him unhappy. Perhaps if he were re-positioned to the CNN London Bureau he'd be happier?
I’ve never watched Meet the Press, so I obviously didn’t see David Gregory’s pathetic attempt to play gotcha by unveiling a magazine while interviewing someone from the National Rifle Association.

And even when it was revealed that Gregory had broken D.C. law by possessing this supposedly dangerous object (basically a metal box with a spring), I didn’t care.

After all, gun control is a foolish policy (as even some leftists and foreigners are slowly beginning to realize). And surely cops have better things to do, after all, than arrest a callow journalist for something that...
