No charges over NBC ammo clip display

Washington (CNN) - No employees of NBC will face criminal charges over the display of a high-capacity ammunition magazine on a "Meet the Press" program in violation of local law in Washington, prosecutors told the network on Friday.

The capital city's attorney general, Irvin Nathan, said in a letter to NBC there would be no charges, but added that it was "a very close decision."

    Good decision. Now get back to the real criminals who are carrying real guns, with real ammunition, aka
    locked and loaded.

    Every week 50 children are killed by cars backing up. Should we require all cars and trucks on the road to have backup cameras they kill more children than mass shootings 2,600 kids a year. This was in the USA weekender this week check it out. How come we are not screaming at the to of our lungs demanding all cars and trucks should have backup cameras and if they don't then we should take the cars and trucks that don't taken off the road just think how many kids lives we would save a lot more than having knee jerk reactions to semiautomatic guns.
