Someone needs to edit the scenes in The Hunt For Red October where Baldwin is handed the 1911 followed by the part where shots go flying in the control room

Someone needs to get Baldwin and Rasta-narc together, to go on a gun safety campaign. They could make some educational videos...

I was just having fun because the hyperlink says SAA when it's clearly  not one. Guess I should have used a smiley.

But while we're at it:
Is a Colt 1973 like a revolver? Still Single Action?

Yes -- it's related by typo.

I'm bringing this one back.

Didn't Baldwin claim he was "cooperating" with the authorities? Apparently when "the authorities" asked to see his cell phone, he told them to get a warrant. So they did -- but, by the time they got it, he was gone from New Mexico, and he still hasn't turned over the phone.

Another update.  The armorer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, is suing Seth Kenney, who provided the blanks for the movie.  The article is a lot of he said-she said but is more allegation than facts.  Nevertheless, she claims he mixed live ammo with the blanks because of a live ammo familiarization session some time before.  She also mentions she was not allowed to be there during the time of the fatal shooting because of Covid protocols.  Still a lot of unanswered questions and still plenty of blame to go around.

It seems to me that if she wasn't there, she has no way of knowing what ammo was used that morning. 

It sounds like the whole film shoot was a bit of a mess.

Not really, her story is what I heard from the start it just got buried.

I remember reading that she put the gun(s) on the cart and that the assistant(?) director handed the gun to Baldwin from the cart. How much time in-between, if any, I don't know.
Maybe that was the way IT was suppose to happen but perhaps didn't

I think I heard she did that, but wasn't there later when the assistant director got the gun from the cart.  I have no idea if anyone checked the gun or the ammo. 

There have been a lot of claims of people tampering with the gun or the ammo, but with no control over either, there is no way to prove any of it.

I wasn't real sure from the article, but I think this was the lawsuit by a separate person on the set claiming emotional distress.  I might be mistaken.  I wasn't sure why this person was suing other than trying to cash in.  Maybe they think if this suit is dismissed for those reasons, it justifies throwing out other lawsuits.

The script supervisor is a survivor of the Alec Baldwin mass shooting and is no doubt suffering from PTSD.  A stack of cash will help him heal.

I wonder if that attorney is as unimpressive in the courtroom as he appears to be in the video ... or if he's doing a Columbo.

I'd like to see a dozen or so of the many trailers they'll have to make for that movie.

Alec Baldwin is truly a piece of work. (Signed: Captain Obvious)

He still maintains that he is totally blameless in the movie set shooting. Now he's even blaming the woman he killed.

I forgot who said it, but "Every bullet has a lawyer attached to it."

Sometimes three or four.  Sometimes five or six.

Alec Baldwin convinced the Russians to invade Ukraine just to kill the parents?

Sounds like a Hollywood blockbuster.

Nah. Putin wouldn't do Baldwin any favors. Baldwin helped steal Red October.

Quote
New Mexico’s Occupational Health and Safety Bureau said Rust Movie Productions must pay $136,793, and distributed a scathing narrative of safety failures in violation of standard industry protocols, including testimony that production managers took limited or no action to address two misfires on set prior to the fatal shooting. The bureau also documented gun safety complaints from crew members that went unheeded and said weapons specialists were not allowed to make decisions about additional safety training.
