    Shifting blame seems to be Alec Baldwins M.O. After shooting his cinematographer, Alec is now advocating for a police officer on movie sets to police gun safety.

    He tweets: "Every film/TV set that uses guns, fake or otherwise, should have a police officer on set, hired by the production, to specifically monitor weapons safety."

    I and the rest of the world are trying to figure out how a police officer doing the same job as the armorer would have prevented him from pointing a gun at someone and pulling the trigger.

    Either way, this is a prime example of how anti-gunners love to shift blame whenever someone deliberately does something unfortunate with a gun.

      @Shooting Bricks Damn. That's messed up. Lol
      But you know....we're SUPPOSED to be proficient. And that's one thing the military (as a general rule) does a pretty pretty decent job at is holding people (other than officers) accountable. 🤷‍♂️😆

      I cannot agree with your statement more! Woo Hoo! I have worked as an Armed Security Officer in Silicon Valley for 20+ Years. I worked closely with Law Enforcement Officers, and I will say there are competent Officers and there are Incompetent Officers when it comes to operational safety of firearms. What our society does not understand is that being a Law Enforcement Officer, Armed Security Officer only introduces you to the "Gun Culture". It is exactly that a "Culture". Officers do not really train with their service weapons like they should. Not all of them need to be John Wick, but they all need to have an solid understanding of firearm safety and the proper use of this piece of equipment. Officers who have previously served in the Military understand what this "Culture" is about. They understand the safety and responsibility factor(s) involved with gun ownership.

      I have been on the range teaching classes where some of my students were cops, when they found out my profession was an Armed Security Officer for Department of Homeland Security, (Contractor), they were surprised. They were surprised I was working for the security company as an instructor providing their training. I have never been in the Military, all of my training has come at my expense and experience both on and off the job. So many Law Enforcement Officers think all of this must be taught to them by other Law Enforcement Officers or Military Officers. Not true, it just takes a level head, focused purpose, responsibility and... a love for the equipment.

      Love for the equipment?

      Love for the equipment is respect! Only that type of dedication comes from love and respect. And... I will admit its fun training on the range just working through the basic manipulation skills and keeping those skills polished. I am no John Wick, and I have no desire to be a highly trained assassin with those skills. But what I do concentrate on are the basics and committing those to muscle memory so on the day I have to use those skills, I do not have to think about what my next moves are. Find cover, stay down, stay as calm as possible, and do not engage until it is necessary to do so. meaning if I can get out of the fight without having to fire a single shot, then so be it. But if I have to fire those shots I am prepared to take the responsibility for whatever the outcome will be.

      I going to say this, because it needs to be said... Kyle was lucky, and he had excellent representation, (NOTHING MORE). If that situation had taken place in California, anywhere Kyle would be serving time. In the United Soviet Socialist Republic of California you do not have the right to self defense, you have the right to be the victim, and the District Attorney will decide your fate. So in Kyle's case, he literally would have to have taken a bullet and returned fire to claim "Self Defense". Getting hit with a Skate Board in this state is not considered being assaulted with a deadly weapon. And... Kamala Harris's statements about it, here in California she is absolutely correct. We have the stupidest laws in this State when it comes to self defense because of the Liberal Democrat Elites currently in our State Assembly, State Senate, and our stupid Governor!

      ​@Peter Kosen Hi. I have to say, in this case, you're dealing with a bunch of people (actors and film crews) who typically aren't knowledgeable about firearms at all, and therefore have no idea about gun safety. So we can't really just say we're going to hold them accountable. They'd have no idea how to "be" accountable, (and safe). First, we'd have to train them all up, which would be time-consuming and expensive. That's why the current system of hiring a professional armorer became popular. And so far, it's worked wonderfully well. Movie-set gun accidents are EXCEEDINGLY rare, because of the overly strict and hyper-controlled manner in which the weapons are supervised and used. The Rust shooting happened because that person was not on hand and other people who weren't (or shouldn't have been) authorized to handle the guns were doing just that. And in this particular case, that AD didn't know enough about guns to check and clear it. She just picked up a random gun off a random table and handed it to someone.

      @Jim D - Addressing the competence of both LEOs and military/naval personnel, as a piglet (rookie) Deputy (formerly Special Forces), my Field Training Officer (FTO) was a former Force Recon Marine. He confided in me that he liked to clean his duty sidearm while watching TV newscasts, dry-firing it when he didn't like the newscaster or the news. (You know what's coming!) Yep, he reloaded and cranked off a round, destroying the TV; the bullet continued through the kitchen, through the kitchen wall, into the bathroom, through the opposite bathroom wall, into the bedroom closet, where it punched a nice hole center of mass in all his wife's clothing hanging in the closet. He ended up buying his wife a whole new wardrobe, after which she divorced him [over cranking off just one silly little round😄]. If I recall correctly, it was the most expensive round he ever shot while "dry-firing," as spousal support can get rather pricey!

    Here are a few questions I never heard the answers to:
    1) We've heard crew members used the actual 'prop guns' for target shooting (plinking)? Was Alec one of these individuals?
    2) Were the guns used for shooting/plinking during the lunch break prior to the accident?
    3) Who provided the live ammunition for the plinking?
    4) What firearms training was provided (or required ahead of time) for members of the cast and crew?

      ​@MISSING LINK THE PROPHET - Perhaps I should have stated that the relevance of who loaded the firearm, regarding Alec Baldwin's legal defense, has no bearing in court, unless that loading was done knowingly or maliciously. In such a circumstance, who did so is only relevant to charging the person with that knowledge or malice; it does not mitigate the legal responsibility of the shooter - "...the person handling the firearm..." - to assure the loaded/unloaded state of the firearm, whether or not it was a "blue" (unfireable) likeness of a firearm or an actual, fireable firearm. You are quite correct in stating that, in either case, it does not let the Defendant "off the hook," though it could well incriminate or make civilly liable other persons responsible for firearm(s) safety on the movie set and off.

      Yes, actors/Directors/Producers and others all have responsibility for hiring competent personnel, including armorers, even if those doing the hiring have no experience in the field of interest for which they are hiring. That, however, does not relieve the Defendant/shooter of responsibility for becoming at least minimally competent in the handling of potentially dangerous or hazardous materials. Neither "experience or common sense" is a requirement for being an actor, as has been repeatedly demonstrated of Hollyweird, and neither bears on a legal defense of the actor/shooter. An Armorer cannot "...ensure total gun safety," as doing so is not possible on this mortal plane and most assuredly in Hollyweird. An Armorer can reduce the hazard, but unless the subject firearm is in the hands of that competent Armorer at all times, the hazard cannot be effectively be reduced to near zero. Bear in mind that in the Armed Forces, unless issued for training, garrison duty requirements, or combat conditions/operations, firearms must be kept under triple-locked conditions, with only the Armorer having access, other than any "spare" key, which is also locked up for safekeeping.

      Only in Hollyweird, leftiotik politics, and on what presently passes for "news," are firearms and other material objects considered sentient. Witness the fact that "the gun went off" and "the SUV drove into the parade," should anything like proof of such leftiotik idiocy be required.

      I would hope that the above touches on clarifying that which was stated less inclusively prior to this. Should my credentials be in question, feel free to inquire.

      @P Arroyo While that is a good point, they hire armorers to ensure total gun safety. Not.letting him off the hook, but most actors don't have experience or common sense which is why they hire "COMPETANT" armorers.

    • P Arroyo

      @Rich LaBombard - Who loaded it is irrelevant, unless done knowingly or maliciously. It is the responsibility of the person handling the firearm to assure himself that it is loaded/unloaded and to refrain from pointing the muzzle toward anyone or anything they do not wish to destroy. I find it fascinating that criminal's guns are the only ones which are sentient and mobile; I'd like to hire some so that I don't have to carry, but I'm not desirous of being a criminal for that entitlement.

    No, every movie set doesn’t need a cop. The final moment someone picks the firearm up, and doesn’t check it, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. It’s the end users responsibility to insure said firearm is checked.

    • Northeast Survival 911
      Northeast Survival 911 23 days ago

      Movie sets don't need people on the set to babysit individuals that are handling firearms. The bottom line is this... When it comes to movies yes there needs to be a responsible person there that handles the firearms and ensures that they're not loaded and if they are properly taking care of when they're not in use. However that being said.. anybody that's going to be handling the firearms for any amount of time needs to learn gun safety and they need to learn at the very least the first two rules of gun safety because those are the most important ones. Rule one is you always treat a firearm as though it is loaded in chambered no exceptions. Rule number two is that you don't ever point the muzzle in the direction of something that you don't want to kill or destroy. No exceptions. If everybody on movie sets that comes in contact with firearms could at the very least follow those two rules tragedies like what happened with Brandon Lee and that poor woman would be prevented. Alec Baldwin is a pompous asshole who needs at the very least to admit to himself and accept the fact that that woman's dead because he was negligent and he needs to say it to that woman's family. He's such a fucking cunt. Pardon my language but he is. Rich bastard that just can't accept anything that he does wrong. The bottom line is that woman is dead because of him.

      @Eric Menefee Maybe not, but when you pick up a gun, and manipulate it in an unsafe manner, causing the injury or death of another, YOU ARE responsible!
      Both as the actor, and as the producer, Alec Baldwin is responsible for what happened, because he ignored the basic safety regulations on set, and the safety rules for gun handling! From what I've heard, this wasn't the first negligent discharge on that set. But it was the first time someone was killed or injured.

    In all my years at airsoft, I've never seen a 12 year old accidently fire their gun and hurt someone, because they follow basic gun safety. It applies to airsoft and real firearms equally. If kids treat airsoft guns as well as real firearms, the seasoned actor who has handled firearms on set for their whole career kills someone breaking every rule, having a cop standing over you isn't going to help crap.

    WRONG!!! There were at least four opportunities when practicing safe firearm handling that should have ensured that poor woman didn’t get killed.
    1) the person loading the firearm and handing it to a second person should have checked it was safe
    2) the second person should require the first person to prove it was safe AND carry out their own check on receipt
    3) the firearm should always be treat as if it’s loaded and not pointed at anyone
    4) finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire
    Anyone insufficiently competent to do this should not touch a firearm.

    Disclaimer: I know, I know, not all cops/you're stereotyping/years of training/etc etc etc. With that said, lets get into it. People think that all cops are gun experts. This is flat out false. I have been in the firearms industry for quite some time and cops are, at best, moderately competent with firearms and firearm safety. I can't count how many times a police officer/sheriff/state trooper has either flagged me during training classes or flat out pointed a gun at me while looking at a gun in the store. I've had tons of officers and commanders not understand how the weapon functions, even the basic ideas behind it. Even with a cop or, better yet, an actual weapons expert on staff, that isn't going to stop some self righteous Hollywood moron that lives to smell their own flatulence from pointing a gun at someone and pulling the trigger. Nah broski, miss me with that. For crying out loud, most cops can't even cite the basic firearms safety rules that I learned at 5 years old and had to recite before I was allowed to shoot the gun for hunting or fun. Now, all the cops that are butt hurt can flame away.

Most of all I understood that I had responsibilities with how I handled it and to practice until the basic safety principles became as natural as breathing. I bothers me to say this and I may be wrong but if Baldwin wasn’t a Hollywood Elite, he’d be in jail! Thank you Colion for you common sense approach!!!

He had a great time, got to shoot 22 rifle, 2 22 pistols that belonged to his great grand fathers, a Glock and an AR 15. We took turns watching like a hawk, reminding and stressing firearm safety,. There were some minor infractions, that were corrected quickly. We stressed that safety is a habit that must be practiced at all times. This young man has more knowledge about firearm safety than Alec Baldwin will ever know.

  • Stovepipe

    No - I’ve worked for 30 years in the film business and am a firearms owner- Alec Baldwin is only liable as a producer on a movie that allowed the safe handling of the firearms and ammunition to fall very far below the usually very strict industry standards. He is not however liable in his capacity as an actor taking trusted direction from the armorer and assistant director. In Canada, when using any explosive devices , we have an ETF ( SWAT) team member on set .. They do not however take responsibility for the condition of the firearms handed to the actors . That is solely the job of the qualified armorer and the gun wrangling team . No live ammo is ever allowed on site. This was a very badly managed movie and any criminal negligence and lawsuits will likely be distributed amongst all the guilty parties right up to the studios in charge .

  • John Gori

    How about the armorer does their job? And the actors get safety training before using a gun to make money?

    FYI - Due to reduced budgets there are MANY police officers who are not as confident/competent with firearms as they should be. At best they are trained to handle their department's issued weapons. Knowledge of all the different types of weapons used in Hollywood movies - forget it. If an officer has that kind of knowledge it is because he pursues it as a hobby, not due to his profession.

    When you “PROVE” (Point in a safe direction; Remove the magazine; Observe the chamber; Verify the feeding path/follower; Examine the barrel) your firearm safe, and you hand it to another person, they have to PROVE it too! My daughter’s in the 🇨🇦 military-was deployed to Afghanistan, and as the police, they only have in-house use of their weapons (unless they get their own civilian firearms licence). I took my daughter to my gun range, where she had never fired a revolver. She was blown away (figuratively speaking) with our time at the range.

      @Lunar Knight That's the big question. The short answer is that the armorer is utterly incompetent. Live ammo is almost never allowed on set. In the extremely rare cases it's needed for something, it has to be kept separate from all other ammo and locked up separate from the guns. The police found live ammo stored, in the open, right alongside dummy rounds and blanks, which means the armorer failed to do her job multiple times in multiple ways. Then the AD failed to do his job and check the gun before giving it to Baldwin.

    Real especially if on film it wouldn’t matter. He should have checked the firearm and made sure it was clear and safe to use before hand. Also loaded with the correct blanks. He should have been been the one loading it. If you pick up a real gun and unless your not willing to kill someone on the other end should make sure the weapon is safe and you are in control on what’s going on wear them it’s loaded on the range out having fun or on a set. If you pick up and real firearm and pull that trigger you are responsible for whatever happens regardless of anything else no if ands or buts doesn’t matter

      @A based goat 🐐 it’s less of a stretch to think it was intentional than it would be for 3 different people to make the mistake of not double checking to make sure the gun wasn’t loaded with live rounds. That would mean that the props director, the trained armorer, and Alec Baldwin ALL on the same day “neglected” to properly check a real firearm to make sure it wasn’t loaded with real bullets, and then Alec (for some weird reason) ignored the YEARS of safety training he’s had and aimed a real firearm at a person on set and pulled the trigger. Even if he thought there was only blanks loaded, he would know that blanks have killed people in the past because that is all made very clear to actors that use them for movies, so he STILL would have ignored that aspect of the firearm training he’s received over the years. What would they need live ammo for on a movie set anyways? There’s special effects and “movie magic” to make things look realistic enough, there’s not ever a reason to have live ammunition on a Hollywood set anymore. So why would the armorer bring live rounds to a set, on the same day when he decided to aim it at her and pull the trigger? IF it was an accident, all these factors would have to come into play, and that’s a much bigger stretch than him just wanting to kill her intentionally and using the situation and witnesses to cover up for his intentions. He’s a well known anti gun activist that knows his anti gun ideals comes from misinformed people and likely he knew that this would help his goal of even more gun control, plus he had personal issues with the victim. He’s a radical leftist, and radical leftists are all about doing whatever is necessary to achieve their goals. They don’t value life in any way, especially the lives of people that potentially stand in their way of achieving their goals.

    I learned from my grandfather, my uncle david, my dad, my hunter safety course. ALWAYS treat a firearm like its loaded. If given a firearm check it for the safety engaged. Never EVER POINT at something unless it's your target . If I'm in a 10 person line and I pass a firearm to the next and say it's not loaded, loaded but the safety is engaged I expect all to CHECK. Any responsible firearms owner knows that and explains that to newcomers. We use fun yet potentially dangerous weapons. Used properly they are fun. One mistake and the funs over. Whoever handles any weapon has to know the status of the weapon. NOT what someone tells them.

    Do we need a police officer in every vehicle to control driver safety?

    How about we go back to the firearm safety training taught to all kids in schools in the 1950's. Then every person is an expert in safety.

    Once again... totally agree! I’ve had firearms for over 30 years. Anyone I’ve ever taken to the range was given extensive instruction on what to do; handling/mishandling; loading/unloading, etc. I make sure that everyone who handles a gun does so with the same rigor and regiment that I experienced in the Army. Example: my nephew-a [now] 29 year old buffoon-inadvertently turned around at the shooting range with a rifle. I immediately turned the barrel, and escorted him from the range. He will never go with me again! Everyone else, women included, followed proper range safety, no incidents occurred, and to my knowledge had a great time. As well, for all the nearly 40 firearms I own, only the one I carry is in my possession. They are secured safely in my dad’s gun safe; well-maintained, and separate from the ammunition. I live alone in an urban environment, and cannot guarantee that someone-maybe a child, maybe a burglar-might get to them. Since I have neither the facility, nor the practical ability to keep them secure, I store them where they will be secure. I carry a Shield Plus, but maybe two or three people know this.
    And for all the instruction I may provide, EVERYONE categorically...whether they are experienced with firearms or not, knows that you NEVER point a gun at anyone (unless you intend to shoot). Even the most novice person knows that! Alec Baldwin has no excuse.

    ...I mean, if it's for the purpose of safety, in the event of an emergency, wouldn't you be better off having a first responder to render first aid, with emergency medical training ...? Of course, this is a suggestion. The solution is firearm safety training, and personal accountability. Responsibility for the safety of others, that's just one of the many, many valuable lessons taught in a firearm safety course. Plus, some of the good classes include basic first aid training, and I feel it's common sense to possibly find a class that also include certification safety courses with the Red Cross. I mean, why not? We are all responsible, and if we are all concerned for safety, then the solution is preparing and understanding the accountability and liabilities...

      @Joe Nunya Yes, it's a matter of money. Money is a measurement of human labor. Small productions with a small number of firearms don't need more than one propmaster--if that propmaster is competent. This one was clearly not.
      The system is 99.99999% effective (100% when the rules are followed). Messing with a system that works THAT well is just stupid. Introducing more variables, more unqualified people, into the equation will not make the system safer.
      This is an isolated case where two separate people failed to do their jobs, one so completely that she might as well not have even been there at all. How many dangerous jobs require that two people screw up that badly before someone gets hurt? Very, very few. In most jobs, one screw-up can get someone hurt or killed. It happens every day, all over. People climb into machinery to fix it without turning it off. People reach into machinery while it's running. People drive cars. People eat food and sometimes choke. People get struck by lightning. More people have been killed by lightning on a clear day than have been killed by movie guns. And of course, hundreds of people each year are killed by accidental/negligent discharges of firearms because they didn't follow the rules. In those cases, it only takes one idiot, not two.
      Yes, a woman is dead. It happened in New Mexico, my state. I know people who've worked with her. But none of those people, who know the business, blame Baldwin solely or primarily. They blame the people whose job it was to follow the rules and failed. Many blame the director as well, for not keeping a leash on his AD. Baldwin is way down the list.

      @Bacteriophagebs You may very well have some valid points on who the traditionally responsible people on set are.
      I'm neither the judge nor the jury, so I condemn none of them. It's also not my duty to exonerate them.
      The lesson that is evident, but not new, is even 'prop (real) guns' are capable of killing, when proper safety procedures are skipped -let's just call it, when mistakes are made.

      You can argue that it wasn't Alec's job or option to check the weapon clear, [Which I am not arguing, I give you that could be true] but, if he had spent thirty, no, five minutes learning the visual and audible indicators for each round type, he would have been capable of detecting the mistake.
      Honestly, is California so hard up for weapons experts that there are only six people in the state capable of looking for primers with hammer or firing pin marks, and recognizing the sound of maracas (beebees instead of powder)? Surely they old afford to hire more than one person who could verify FA safety.
      If "Safety Is Everyone's Responsibility" (a frequent OSHA training mantra), then why isn't firearms safety everyone's responsibility?
      ...
      Money.
      If the other people on set are not capable or willing to watch the firearm inspection and setup, they don't get to play, be it actors, directors, producers, or armourers.

      @Joe Nunya So, what, you want Hollywood to pass laws? I don't understand what your point is, here. They use a system that operates on the same principles and *does* come with penalties. Hollywood can't jail someone. You make no sense.

      @Joe Nunya Okay, great, but it's the same system, except that since the participants are frtee citizens and not military, they're not subject to military law.
      They are, however, subject to criminal law, and the armorer and AD should absolutely be charged under that law for breaking protocols that have been shown to be 100% effective at preventing deaths.

    My wife is Bulgarian and even my mother in law knows gun safety and can strip an AK. Granted they stopped teaching it a while back but when we lived in Russia my daughter had a life safety course where they teach a ton of great things like first aid basic fire fighting and gun safety. I've got some pics where there is a class full of teens learning firearms with AK74s 😆

    I'm only 10 seconds into the video and I can already tell what an idiotic idea this is. First: Believe it or not, just being a police officer does not make a person a weapons expert. Although many of us love guns, more of us are not particularly gun nuts, and these people just see them as a tool at their job. We also have radios, but most of us can't tell you anything about how they work or when and where to employ the many different kinds of radio devices. Second: You know who IS a gun expert by trade? The guys Hollywood already employs as their on-set production armorers. Just replacing that guy with a cop doesn't make anything any safer, because the same things that went wrong with Rust could've gone wrong if there had been a cop or anyone else doing the job. The failure was a human one. That armorer walked away and left the weapons unsupervised, and also by not being there, did not prevent the AD from picking up that gun and just randomly declaring it safe. The same thing could happen if a cop was doing the job. I hate to say that's a possibility, but it is. You're just replacing one fallible human being with another. These armors are already highly trained and experienced with far more models of firearms than the average cop will ever be. I say that as a former cop. I hate to say this, but every department has a doofus guy who just barely qualifies every quarter, and can barely field strip his weapon at the end of the day to clean it without one of the guys helping him. Yes, there are many very professional, motivated, well-trained and highly-experienced cops who's "thing" is guns... but sadly, not all of them.

    You point a loaded gun at someone and pull the trigger, then are surprised at what happens. Duh! After seeing justice prevail at the Rittenhouse trial I hope it continues with this guy. If Baldwin's celebrity status keeps him from being punished, which I expect will happen, as a minimum he should be ordered to join the NRA so he can learn something about firearm safety.

    There is already a person responsible for gun safety on movie and tv sets.
    This person is not always competent enough, apparently.
    Why would anybody think that a cop would always be more competent? Most cops just don't know a lot about firearms...
