Anyone familiar with lock out tag out knows you place your trust in someone telling you they locked out some piece of equipment. You then place your lock on something and trust it was done properly. There should be plenty of checks and balances to keep you safe but things break down when someone is complacent, distracted, or takes shortcuts.
We still don’t know all the fact yet but for the life of me I can’t blame the guy that put his trust in the people around him. I’m betting he knows nothing about guns and most everyone would think the same thing if they were on a movie set. If this was Clint Eastwood people would be defending him. Now that it’s a guy they dislike they want him to fry. Let’s be fair here.
Mr Baldwin has elevated himself to a higher level of accountability on several occasions but most notably when he commented on a shooting by an officer who shot a man that attacked him and reached for his weapon. The man was a addict, and a vet.
Prop guns are real guns with blank ammo. Anyone that uses real guns has a responsibility to train themselves and ensure safety protocols are being met. Actors outsource this responsibility to the help because they cannot be bothered with it. Without training they should only be allowed to use bananas on set.
