Re: Safety!

I’m really at a loss as what to say about this incident. Every actor on set should be required to individually inspect their firearm(s) and ensure that it is safe. Treat any prop gun as a firearm. This was a completely avoidable accident and there needs to be a restructuring of safety protocols because, clearly it is not good enough.

Mr. Baldwin should have had to physically inspect his firearm, each individual round should have had a visual inspection. And verified by someone else, before any prop gun gets pointed at anyone.

Maybe these protocols are in place, I don’t know, but this is a tragic accident that is completely avoidable.
