Prior to the incident, guns had been misfired on set, including, without limitation, by Defendant Baldwin's stunt double and a prop master who accidentally shot herself in the foot," the filing alleges.

Produced by Larry, Moe and Curly.

Rust needs to be compiled into native code.  What it's missing is an interpreter.

Conservatives are going all in. Baldwin mocked their God and must be punished.

Dafuq?  Baldwin effed up, shot a gun while rehearsing for a scene that didn't even involve shooting a gun, and this is conservatives' fault?

I still pin this on Alec.  It takes 3-4 seconds to open a revolver and ensure it's empty.  Not to mention you don't point a gun at anything you don't want to destroy.

If you're so busy you can't afford 3-4 seconds for basic safety then I'd say spend 3-4 fewer seconds on the hair gel before going on set.

If Gloria Allred is known for one thing, it is her love of Trump.

I think this is one of them enemy of my enemy things, they just want to see Baldwin suffer and don't care how it is done.

That's the thing though, SNL makes fun of every President (yes, even the democrats) Baldwin's take was just that Trump was an idiot. He didn't go into the criminal activity or the bribery or the molestation. It was done with pretty much kid's gloves. What happened to "fark your feelings"?

Because if Clint Eastwood did the same thing, they wouldn't be pressing it this hard. They wouldn't give a shiat or would even be defending him.

And it still wouldn't be relevant to the actual legality of the situation. Conservatives want Baldwin to be totally guilty because he's a dirty old libby lib who yells a lot about gun control. Some Farkers want Baldwin to be totally cleared because they hate watching the dirty old conservatives enjoying their schadenfreude. But in real life, nobody's feelings signify anything, just the facts of what happened. Let's just hope for a fair and thorough process that cuts to the truth whatever it may happen to be, shall we?

/just kidding. Of course we won't do that. And with all the money involved, I doubt the process will be all that fair or thorough, though a few people are bound to generously cash in after they sign a few dizzyingly comprehensive NDAs.

Jesus Christ, really?  Whataboutism is your excuse?  Good God, lay the blame where it exists:  Everybody including Baldwin.  Put your Big Boy Pants on for once.

That isn't how it works on movie sets. They tell the actor it's cold. If he or she then opens the action to see, they take it away and send it back to the armorer to be "recertified". This delays filming, and annoys everyone. It's a stupid way of going about it in my book, but that's what is done.

A prop gun is any gun they use to make the film, whether it's functional or not.

Oh lord that is stupid.  Those are prop shoes.  That's a prop shirt.  That is prop grass.  Everyone knows that when something is a "prop" it is a stand in that isn't the real thing.

It was a real gun loaded with real ammunition.

It's not how the industry defines "prop". Stupid is bloviating about something you haven't bothered to find out anything about.

While I believe you are absolutely correct, this contradicts what Clooney said in a different thread a few days ago.

The gun was a prop, but it wasn't a prop gun.  There is a difference.

Everybody knows Mugato isn't using prop how someone in theater would use that term.  Mugato is using it in order to downplay what Baldwin did when he pointed a loaded gun at people.  Whether that gun was being used in a movie or in a theater, it didn't cease to be a gun.

Here's at least a walk through of things, but is a bit dated now with information:

Is Alec Baldwin Going to Jail for the Death of Halyna Hutchins?

I take it that the bullet didn't ask for consent before penetrating the victim? That's kind of Allred's schtick.

Baldwin is a talented performer. Other than that, he's always struck me as an arrogant piece of shiat.

There are 13 producers listed for Rust.  Alec Baldwin was just listed so he could get a little more cash out of the deal, he certainly didn't do any of the actual producing.
