Alec Baldwin accidentally discharged prop gun loaded with live rounds, killing cinematographer and injuring director on new movie “Rust”

This is a terrible event that has caused death and injury, but I would hope that there were never “live rounds” in a firearm on a film set.

Wondering if this will be some tragic series of “small” errors that lead to a horrible tragedy, like what happened with Brandon Lee on the set of The Crow.

No matter what, thoughts to Halyna Hutchins’ family, the director that was injured, and to Alec Baldwin, who as far as we know at the moment, ended a life and injured someone while probably doing something that was asked of him on set.

Just terrible.

Film productions can never pay enough money to hire folks to keep track of all the weapons on set and make sure they are kept safe. Fucks sake… I thought we learned this in 1993.
