I can see this coming. Part is using his celebrity status and acting skills to serve some sort of community service sentence so the local D.A. sees he is not at fault and thoroughly remorseful for his chain of deadly screw ups and goes easy on him.
The Gun Control advocacy will wave his “suffering” and “remorse” as a new banner to enact more gun control “He has lived it personally! How can you doubt the consequences of playing with guns? We need to learn what he is teaching us!”
Stupid? Insane? Not really. Think about how George Floyd is now some sort of Civil Rights saint whereas he probably committed more crimes against Black people than the Minneapolis PD since it was founded.
