No Wiggle Room on This!
Regarding Baldwin's killing of the DP of his latest movie and "fault":
It is the PERSONAL responsibility of the person holding the weapon to immediately check the chamber for either appropriate loads OR empty status.
No excuses, no, "they told me it was empty..."
ALL WEAPONS ARE ALWAYS LOADED UNTIL PROVEN TO BE EMPTY BY VISUAL INSPECTION.
THE PERSON WITH HIS OR HER HANDS ON THE WEAPON IS SOLELY RESPONSIBLE IF THE WEAPON IS DISCHARGED, UNINTENTIONALLY OR NOT.
End of story.
