Wonder what'll happen if someone goes nuts on a movie set.

It was a land defiled, diseased beyond all healing, save the Great Sea should wash in and cover it with oblivion.

But remember that time that Kevin Costner saved Whitney Houston from a camera gun? It was all over the news.

A few years ago a major actor in the Philippines or Indonesia was killed by some 'hero' bystander. It's too damn early for me to be googling stuff but I'm sure someone here remembers.

Fixing that.
The regulars seem to have plenty of guns.

I think the people calling the cops are morons, or..more likely, they just want some excitement in their lives. What, you cant see all the farking cameras, extras, movie props, and the zillion other things that go along with making a movie?

You know, I think it's great that NYC has largely solved its crime problem, and brought it back down to near where it was when it took off in the '60s and '70s. But people elsewhere roll their eyes at calling the cops about a FAKE shootout.

I was ready to yell at these idipts, but then I read this: "
On Sept. 18, the popular CBS show "Person of Interest" violated its permit by using prop guns outside of the set's perimeter on Fifth Avenue and East 47th Street, sources said. People in the area spotted the actors waving around realistic-looking fake guns on the bustling Midtown street, and at least one alarmed witness called cops"

Yeah, if you run off the set, turn some corners, and are still firing blanks at passers-by, I'd haul your ass in, too.

Bed-wetttng liberals.

They 'solved' it in a manner similar to how Detroit 'solved' their overpopulation problem.

Ie coincidence.

Good thing you didn't call anyone an idipt, someone may have called you out on that one.

Nothing is "bed-wetting" about understanding the truth of the Violence Policy Center's message: that merely looking upon a real firearm increases by one-hundred thousand the odds that either you or a loved one will at some future date be shot and possibly killed.

I don't know...I'd probably give Sarah Shahi a pass (if you know what I mean)...and I'm sure my wife would give Jim caviezel  a pass too.

Or they're bed wetting hoplophobes.

Wait, so they don't have police nearby helping with traffic for set lockdown? No officers are aware of the filming?

BTW, working a film set with squibs going off all over the place is absurdly exciting. Having a helicopter pulling in low with an actor firing blanks from a machine gun in my direction was unreal.

Wow, New York Post, thanks for the "Nurse Jackie" spoiler!  ;)

If it was real crime no one would want to get involved.
 
2013-12-20 05:21:45 PM
Well, when I see 5 weirdos dressed in togas stabbing a guy in the middle of the park in full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards. That's *my* policy.

You can legally have guns in NYC, but you have to jump through a few hoops to do so.  I have a few friends that have hunting rifles.
