I am sure by now we have all heard about Baldwin's stupidity with a firearm on the set of Rust. He would never give us a pass for that so he doesn't get one either. He was in CLEAR violation of the most BASIC gun safety rules: 1) ALWAYS treat ALL guns as if they are loaded - NO EXCEPTIONS and 2) ALWAYS verify the status of the gun yourself - NEVER take someone else's word for it.

        They say he was practicing for an upcoming scene. I know the two victims and their families are going to make a lot of money, but I'm not sure how this is going to play out with Baldwin and others involved in the picture, legally or financially...and their insurance companies.

He still should have double-checked the weapon himself. The fact that the crew had walked off to protest unsafe working conditions probably will NOT help Baldwin's case

        Baldwin definitely has mitigating factors on his side. The questions of will those mitigating factors be enough, and how much will they mitigate, will take a lot of time to decide. This is one of those cases where a great deal is going to depend on who the judge is.

          "In 2000, Halls was the second unit’s first assistant director on The Crow: Salvation, the sequel to the film in which Bruce Lee’s son Brandon Lee was killed in an on-set firearms mishap in 1993."

           This is right out of the Twilight Zone.

Dave Halls Claimed Gun on Alec Baldwin Set was Safe Before Giving It to Actor

We don’t know what happened on the set of Alec Baldwin’s production in New Mexico but we are gaining some bits of information. It's reported that a man on location assured Baldwin that the gun was safe to use.  The man’s name was Dave Halls.

Alec Baldwin fatally shot a cinematographer on a New Mexico film set with a gun a crew member had assured the actor was safe, a tragic mistake that came hours after some workers walked off the job to protest conditions and production issues.

An assistant director, Dave Halls, grabbed a prop gun off a cart at a desert movie ranch and handed it to Baldwin during a Thursday rehearsal for the Western film “Rust,” according to court records made public Friday.

“Cold gun,” Halls yelled, declaring the weapon didn’t carry live rounds and was ready to fire.

But it wasn’t. When Baldwin pulled the trigger, he unwittingly killed 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza, who was standing behind her inside a wooden, chapel-like building.

In 2000, Halls was the second unit’s first assistant director on The Crow: Salvation, the sequel to the film in which Bruce Lee’s son Brandon Lee was killed in an on-set firearms mishap in 1993.  He’s been involved in numerous movies over his career.

I believe the gun was also left unattended for a bit which is a big no-no on the set. Someone could have easily put live rounds in it while it was unattended
