    It's like nothing was learned at all from Brandon Lee's death.
    Prop safety is still lacking, apparently.

    From what Twitter has educated me on sometimes the material that gets used in these guns or something other isn’t properly emptied out of these guns between takes so when it comes time to fire them well…..

    Though in this particular instance an actual round seems to have been in the gun.

    Someone done fucked up.

    From what I've already heard on the subject and what I read since the Baldwin incident. We have two, fake guns, like realistic looking guns but nothing more than toys. Real guns and blank bullets, which can still cause burn or injury leading to death (i.e. Jon-Erik Hexum's case), and real guns with live ammo that are used for close up shots of shooting. The issue is that all fall into being a "prop gun" as it is an umbrella term, and for the safe usage of the latter two you need to have not only specialists on set and daily safey talks.

    On the Rust case it seems that was a strike of camera man that lead to them ousting every unionized member of production and bringing non unionized members. Also the were two previous misfires with the prop guns used. So security and safety were preatty lax.

    A good legal overlook on what can happen to Alec Baldwin and the others who were at the movie set:

    Well, I haven't followed and scrutinized the whole story. BUT, as far as I know Alec Baldwin isn't going to jail. The assistant director and the producer of the movie are more responsible

    Maybe not but I'd expect him to be named in a wrongful death lawsuit or civil suit. Since there's still the issue of him pointing the gun at the people who got shot.

    Isn't Baldwin one of the producers of the movie?

    Well, I just checked and it seems he is... sounds like he is fucked lol

    Let's take what I've said with a grain of salt though. I don't know how the law is applied across the ocean and all that....

    I mean.... did anyone get in trouble for Brandon Lee?
    Or when you're on a set does it just go down as a freak accident and everyone is forced to move on?

    EDIT:
    The Rust set is cursed.

    Kyle Rittenhouse gives us a "good" bit of acting, and Merriam-Webster trolls fabulously in return:

    What's the estimation of transgenders again ? Something less than one percent in the UK I think (just quickly googled it)
    But I'm not sure that "gender-neutral" is for transgenders but more like "non-binaries" and whatnot. Not sure.

    And what is TERF Island ?

    The UK, or more particularly England.

    Did it have to be Brian May?

    Plus his argument is wonky anyway as award shows have mostly been using gender neutral names for categories for years.

    I randomly just found out what "TERF" meant by reading an article about JK Rowling in LeMonde. But, is it breaking the law ?

    Well, now I don't know what is the true. Regardless of journalist freedom to create quotes or cherry pick bad takes out of the whole context.

    I guess it depends. Is homophobia considered a crime? Are there laws to protect and stop the discrimination against LGBTQ+ people? If yes, than is a crime. If no, than not.

    I wouldn't put anything past British journalists.
