So Alec Baldwin shot a woman dead on set and seriously injured another man.
What do we put this down as? A tragic accident? Maybe ... except that implies no one was to blame.
The more you find out, the more it seems that this was due to negligence and lack of attention to safety. Corners were being cut.
Why do liberal elites preach one thing in public, but do a different thing in private? What happened to all the "care for the low paid"? Out the window when it comes to saving a few bucks ...
Isn't a prop gun that can shoot and kill someone really just a gun, that is being used as a prop? It's 2021, is it not possible to make a genuinely fake gun that can't possibly fire anything at anyone? I had a cap-gun 45+ years ago that could make a bank and a puff of smoke for Christs sake and I didn't have any CGI budget or post-effects people.
Why don't they at least make prop guns only take "prop caliber bullets" so that loading a real round couldn't happen (cough, cost, cough).
If you are firing a gun in a movie, is there really ever any need to point it at anyone for real? No, there isn't. I'm not a director, but I know camera-angles are a thing.
Anyone who points a gun at someone and pulls the trigger is responsible for what happens - they should have taken charge of making sure what was loaded in it or not. It's like the "did you pack this case yourself" question at the airport checkin.
He was the producer, he was (from the sound of it) responsible for the lack of safety procedures, he was responsible for using untrained people and he was responsible for pulling the trigger.
I think he's guilty, but don't expect anything to happen to him, because liberal elites will be finding a friendly judge as we speak, and it will morph into "oooh, guns ... a gun shot someone"
