Alec Baldwin kills woman by firing prop gun on film set of Rust

I really can't believe this news story. Apparently the American film industry needs help in solving this unsolvable problem of people getting killed by live rounds on set so I'm offering my advice for free:

Whenever you have to use a prop gun that may or may not be filled with live rounds, instead of simply using it and trusting that most probably it doesn't have live rounds, shoot it into something other than a human being to check first. Every single time.

There. Hundreds of lives saved.

You're welcome.

Propmaster is in charge of such things. Essentially they hire a professional to make sure these things don't happen and occasionally they suck at their job so hard that somebody gets killed. The crazy part of the story is that the set was already made aware of a few incidents of mishandling and there were complaints that the set was unsafe but they just rolled with it anyway.

This may be a stupid question but why would they use a loaded gun on a movie set to begin with anyway?

They're not supposed to.

There are usually two kinds of rounds used on a movie set, blanks and dummy rounds.

Blanks are rounds that have no projectile (the bullet) but still have gunpowder to produce the bang but nothing propelled forward.

Dummies are rounds that have the projectile but have had either the primer struck, or no gunpowder, usually both. These are rounds made to "look" real say in a chamber of a revolver during a close up of the gun.

Mistakes are made when somebody mixes up these methods. That's what happened with Brandon Lee. They accidentally left a bullet in the chamber and inserted blanks and when they fired the blank, the bullet that was lodged in the barrel shot out and killed Lee.

They don't know for sure what happened with Baldwin yet, but it's mostly something careless like described above.

Or, they brought real live rounds on set. That isn't impossible either.

It is and I almost feel bad trying to convince my friend via text that he went on a shooting spree shouting "SANDY HOOK!" with his dick out his pants.
