A Nation of Laws

12 Jan

Or Lawyers…

David Gregory and wife knew D.C. Attorney General

District of Columbia Attorney General Irvin Nathan issued a lengthy letter today explaining the decision not to prosecute David Gregory “despite the clarity of the violation of this important law,” despite rejecting NBC’s claims of a subjective misunderstanding of the law, and despite vowing vigorous enforcement of gun laws.

Emily Miller of The Washington Times, who has written extensively about the overly aggressive enforcement of D.C. gun laws, including as to high capacity magazines, reacted as follows:

“It is shameful that the politicians running the nation’s capital have sent the  clear message that there are two systems of justice in the city: one for the rich and powerful and one for everyone else.”

It further undermines public confidence in such decisions to find out that Nathan knew Gregory and his wife, high-powered attorney Beth Wilkinson.

That’s a shocker…
