Gun control hypocrisy at its worst

A revival of the flagship Law & Order TV series continues its demonstration of why the whole series franchise was a blight upon the earth to start with (via Breitbart):
Thursday night's season finale of NBC's Law & Order pushed gun-control ideology in an episode about a U.S. senator's assassination. The fictional senator voted in favor of gun rights.

On Thursday's episode, "Open Wounds," a gun control activist named Derek Quinn (Dennis Flanagan) kills a U.S. senator for changing his vote on gun control legislation. Quinn is a teacher who survived a school shooting that left 16 of his students dead.

The episode begins at a wedding for the daughter of Senator Alan Chandler (Brian Haley). The senator is dancing with the bride when Quinn, wearing a Covid mask, runs up and shoots him.

Detectives hunt Quinn down and corner him on a boardwalk. Quinn points his gun at his own head as he cries out about Chandler's gun control vote.

"But that bastard Chandler got what he deserved," Quinn said. "He should have never changed his vote! We need to stop all this gun craziness. How many more people have to die?"

Detective Jalen Shaw (Mehcad Brooks) agrees with Quinn's opinion and convinces him to put down his weapon and surrender.

"I agree with you," Shaw responded. "And nobody needs to die right here tonight, right?"

During a press conference following Quinn's arrest, District Attorney Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) gives a lecture on the importance of gun control.
For a TV show claiming to be "realistic", it's entirely the opposite that a district attorney would be giving a political lecture like the above. Though for all we know, that could change in NYC with the way they're circling the drain in terms of cohesion. It's also quite disturbing how the police officials involved run the gauntlet of agreeing with a man who committed a violent crime, and additionally so how the teleplay twists and turns like a pretzel to justify the notion of a gun control-supporting teacher using a firearm himself. Whatever logic this TV show's trying to get at here is entirely lost.

Let's also consider this was a series whose stars included an actor who's since seen his career take a downfall following sexual assault allegations. What's the use of reviving the flagship series of a franchise that's been tainted as a result?
