I'm still unsure of what happened...
Someone made a massive mistake.
Live ammunition with real bullets should be under lock and key if on site whatsoever. Why they were not locked away but instead loaded into a prop gun is a good question...
Then when a director handed the actor the gun he was taking the responsibility himself...and either knew or thought he did and didn't even look.
Over how many decades and how many total films?oh wouldn't this go over big with Hollyweird.
Randazza Tweet: Around 350 deaths have been caused by accidents sustained on film and TV sets. I think we should either outlaw making movies, or at least have very serious controls on making movies. If it saves just one life, it is worth it.
So if I hand you a gun and you take it and shoot someone, that's not your fault?It was NOT Baldwin's responsibility to check the gun. I read about this and the responsibility is the armourer's and they often have two. Could Baldwin even have told the difference between the rounds? Not clear!
There is a union problem here ---- they may have switched in locals because the union people were walking off the job due to bad conditions. And this may be why there was a live round put in: someone wanted to cause a lot of trouble for the movie. The workers did have a lot of complaints.
Well, that worked ----
