Sounds like an episode from Perry Mason, exact same scenario.

I don't care for him but if you ask me I don't think he had any bad in his heart when he shot the gun. Temper or not, I don't think he's guilty.

What a shame for the lady who was killed and her family. I feel awful for them.

He has no blame in this as he does not supply the equipment used on the film set. Time will tell if some ******* tried to sabotage the film being made by putting live rounds in the guns used while filming. They shut down other movies being made in the same vicinity.

Why were non-actors shot? Why was he pointing a gun at a non-actor and pulling the trigger? Even the blanks will have some report for which you would not want to point it at someone.

Maybe not....he was the producer for the film AND the union folks walked of the set that same morning citing safety concerns...he could have a whole lot of responsibility in this besides just pulling the trigger.

Replacement worker was in charge of Alec Baldwin's deadly prop gun

The same exact thing happened to Brandon Lee back in the 90’s. Nobody tried to sabotage anything. There’s a strict protocol for guns. Only one person can handle guns. They must show the 1st AD each chamber to show it’s a cold gun. NOBODY can just grab a gun of a prop cart and hand it to an actor. Therein lies the problem. Rules weren’t followed. Alec Baldwin, like him or not, had nothing to do with this other than he had the gun. The union crew members were not happy with production on this show and had complained to producers, then walked off the set at which point the movie hired non union crew members to replace them. There were 3 accidental discharges on that set. That’s UNHEARD OF.

He won’t it’ll be the line producer or UPM. But in the end, nobody will be charged with anything because that’s how this business works. You think this is the only death? You’re seeing it because an actor was involved. You don’t see the other issues that happen on sets due to lack of safety.

He was told the gun was cold. He shot the DP who was operating the camera most likely since her crew walked out on her. And the director was standing behind her as they often do.

Someone dropped the ball on this one. He is sincerely remorseful and truly broken-hearted. At age 68, it may be a very long time, if at all, before we see him again.

Prop gun in Alec Baldwin accidental movie set shooting had live rounds, police say | Reuters

This has more information from what is a trusted source.

Quote:
He said the prop gun was one of three on a cart outside a building. One of them was taken by the assistant director on the movie who went inside and handed it to Baldwin.

"As the assistant director handed the gun to the actor Alec Baldwin, (he) yelled 'cold gun', indicating the prop gun did not have any live rounds," the affidavit said.

As the investigation proceeded, questions were raised about working conditions on the set of "Rust", a small budget Western movie of which Baldwin was both star and a co-producer.

Lee was shot with a real bullet. Same thing?
