I think there should be more cases like this, Father charged after toddler fatally shot mother during Zoom call
It might just get some gun owners to realise they are responsible for the firearm at all times and they must be kept out of the reach of children and all others not trained.

So much for weapon safety.
Alec Balwin accidently kills 1 director, wounds another
If someone actually put a live round in there, number one that shouldn't have been on the set," said Bill Davis, a weapons expert who has worked on several film and television productions.
Number two, they should have visually inspected the gun first with a pencil down the barrel and a flashlight to make sure there's no obstructions in the mechanism and number three, they need to inspect the round that's going in there.

More guns needed in Georgia.

One dead, 7 wounded in shooting near Fort Valley State University during homecoming weekend.

And no end to this stupidity is in sight. :-(

Someone did put a live round in. The union crew quit over safety the day before and scabs were working the day of the incident. I'm expecting some very serious charges on the producers and not just OSHA either. https://law.justia.com/codes/new-mexico/2019/chapter-30/article-2/section-30-2-1

You don't even point a firearm loaded with blanks at anybody close. The paper or wax seal for the gunpowder in a blank round can do serious damage

Thanks, good to learn something.

Always wondered if 'blanks' were completely safe...

Then again, it's not good to go pointing any sort gun in any way anyhow!


Stay safe folks!

Set protocol is that any firearm needs to be inspected and found to be safe by a certified expert before it is placed in the actor's hands. Unless the actor put the prop gun against someone's head and fired or beat them with it, it is in no way their fault as it is in no way their responsibility.

Giving an actor a live round without telling them (or in almost all cases, even with telling them unless it is being used for a specific stunt, they are trained on it beforehand, supervised by an expert and the set is cleared) is about the worst failure of the prop department possible.

Blanks have never been safe. Just like live rounds, they have a effective range.
If hit by one within their range, you'll know about it.

NO weapon with a firing pin is safe. No matter how safe the hands handling it.

Ah thank you... was trying to remember the name and kept coming up with the similar name Jan-Michael Vincent. :^p
