No Charges for NBC Host for On-Air Ammunition Clip
WASHINGTON (AP) -- NBC journalist David Gregory won't face charges for displaying what he said was a high-capacity ammunition magazine on his "Meet the Press" show.
D.C. prosecutors announced the decision Friday, saying criminal charges wouldn't serve the public's best interests.
Police began investigating after Gregory, during taping of his Dec. 23 show, held up an object he said was a magazine that could hold 30 rounds.
He was interviewing National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre and used the magazine as a prop while discussing gun control.
D.C. gun laws generally restrict the possession of high-capacity magazines, regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. Police say they told NBC it would be illegal to possess the device.
The decision was announced by the city's Office of Attorney General.

May 24, 2013 17:29 GMT
MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- Public agencies in Moore have opened streets to residents and resumed mail delivery to as many addresses as possible.
At a news conference Friday, police said residents in the hardest-hit areas can go back into their neighborhoods without having to deal with police checkpoints. Some road closures may still occur as utility crews work to restore service.
Moore's postmaster said 85 percent of mail delivered from the Moore station is being delivered, and that mail deliveries from the Santa Fe station are up to 95 percent.
For those whose mail is not being delivered, those with ZIP codes 73153 and 73160 can pick up mail at the Airport Finance unit on Air Cargo Road.
Those in ZIP code 73170 can go to the Santa Fe station for their mail.
