"con-servatives are trying to get Balwin because he says mean things about trump".....that's his REAL crime.
youre skipping over the fact that cons have always held the gun holder responsible,, this is consistent with their standards,, leftist not so much,,

I guess the producer shouldn't have hired inexperienced, unqualified people to handle firearms on his set, huh? Hey, who is the producer on that movie?
Very true
But to be criminally liable you need to show he should have known she was not qualified and hired her anyway

Looks like the armouror fucked up big time

And the producer who hired a 24 year old with no experience (and was probably fucking her). Who was that, by the way?

Completely ridiculous

I know Conservatives are trying to get Baldwin because he says mean things about Trump

But Baldwin was following established protocols on the set. He was handed a gun that was declared “cold” by two crew members trained to handle weapons.
The scene called for him to shoot directly at the camera

As much as you hate Baldwin, he will not be prosecuted for his actions that day

Yeah….no. As information has come iut it seems the standard protocols were not followed.

They also seem to have combined the jobs of prop master with armorer which is a big no no ……

It does?
Show us

If instead of a 6 shot revolver he is handed a rifle with a 30 round magazine, is he expected to unload the magazine to verify it is full of blanks?

Yes…..

Funny how safety takes a back seat if people agree with someone from Washington or Hollywood. But they minute they do not agree they are all over every little thing that is said or done.

These anti-gun assholes on U.S.mesageboard splash themselves with the blood of any normal gun owner , or their children killed in a gun accident and they also do a happy dance to celebrate.

As Kurt Schlichter points out in his column at townhall this week, that the leftists started this incivility, and until they stop,these are the rules we will live by. We are done letting them destroy our people without being challenged .

Seems the crew was bringing ammo to the set and loading into the prop guns to do some plinking out in the desert

The armourer had cleared the gun before lunch and left it out. Doesn’t appear that she checked it again after lunch.

Same goes for the Assistant Director who just took her word she had checked it and declared it a Cold Gun as he handed it to Baldwin

Yep, likely criminal liability.

Apparently Baldwin was the producer as well as the actor. This adds another level of responsibility like hiring a competent armorer rather than a 20 something babe who might have had other duties. Lefties want to hold gun makers responsible for crimes but an actor who actually shot and killed somebody gets a pass.

Depends on the actor, of course.
Baldwin is a bashit-crazy leftist. He gets a pass.
Tom Selleck? If this happened to him, they'd have the torches and pitchforks out.

Of course, this would not have happened to him, because he would have checked the gun.

Ummmm..he is ulitimately responsible since it was his MOVIE that he was in charge of not just acting in.

There is more to the story so laying blame is premature except in his case---he was more than just an actor. How much blame he gets is up for debate.

Whoever put the bullet in the gun should be the most guilty....with others taking their fair share of the blame as well.
