After watching that video my anger level regarding the entire situation has skyrocketed! Why would they call that unscripted? That's about the last thing it should be called. Until reading this thread I wasn't aware that Alec Baldwin was so anti firearms. He's nobody that are really followed or paid that much attention to. But anti-gun or not I figured he's still a human being and I still feel some compassion for him. That's gone out the window. He's not being accountable at all for his actions, in fact he's outright lying about it. There is no f***ing way that gun went off without him pulling the trigger. PERIOD. I know damn well if it was me that pointed the gun at somebody and it mysteriously went off that there would be no question I'd be seeing a jail cell. If he doesn't oh, it is for no other reason than because he is a celebrity. Such bullshit!
And there was no reason not script for him to pull the gun.A single action Colt or copy thereof could easily have a damaged trigger or sear that would let it slip off and fire without pulling the trigger, particularly if a bunch of numb-nuts have been out playing cowboy with it.
This would seem to fall squarely into the armorers purview.
Not to take the weight off the jackwagon who obviously cocked a gun and pointed it at a live human.
Pieces of crap like this don't have guilty consciences. He may cry as much as he wants on TV, but to go out to fancy arse stores shortly after this happened shows you what a piece of crap he is. And I think that all Democraps believe him.Regardless of how or why the gun went off he is still responsible as he had the gun pointed in an unsafe manner. He can tell us what he wants but he knows what happened and will have to live with that for the rest of his life. Is he going to donate all the millions he has made making movies with firearms? What a piece of crap. And that was before the incident!
You are 200 % correct with all the above, but I was always under the impression that no gun would be allowed on set to be able too shoot even if a live round was loaded after the Brandon Lee incident. And then live rounds on set?I see this as a simple issue of gun safety that was taught to my by my father before I was 8 years old.
1. If the firearm is in your hand you are responsible for the safe handling of it!
a. The first thing you do is check to make sure it is UNLOADED every time!!!
b. NEVER point a firearm at anything you don't want to shoot or destroy
2. The armor should also have check it but the ultimate responsibility is in the hands of the person wielding the firearm.
They never should have mixed any of the firearms used in movies with ones that are used to shoot real bullets. he will have to deal with the fact he shot and killed a person on the movie set.
On a personal observation is that if he is so anti-gun he is a hypocrite for taking a movie that involves him using firearms. he should stick to the foo foo wuz boy romantic comedy roles and a game show host.
