Prosecutor to decide on David Gregory gun control charges next week

Washington (CNN) – A decision is expected by the end of the week on whether there will be any criminal charges brought against NBC News for displaying what appeared to be a high-capacity gun magazine during a “Meet the Press” broadcast.

D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan received the results of an investigation by city’s Metropolitan Police Department, and is weighing a decision, spokesman Ted Gest said Thursday.

During a December 23 “Meet the Press” interview with Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association, NBC’s David Gregory held up what the host described as a 30-round magazine. Gregory asked if banning those and only allowing magazines with five or ten bullets might reduce gun tragedies such as the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
