Chief Lanier is stuck between a rock and a hard place. If she does not charge Mr. Gregory with the felony, she sends a message to the crime-ridden city that the laws don’t apply to the rich and powerful. However, if she books him on breaking the city’s onerous firearms law, it will further illuminate how ridiculous the laws are for law-abiding people to follow.
A real journalist would be challenging the DC authorities to charge him, to point out just how ludicrous and unfair these laws are. But NBC doesn’t have any of those.
