    Strictly speaking it would lie with the armourer and Assistant Director. Firearms are treated separately from other props because they are dangerous.

    I mean. "Freak accident" is a very generous term.

    Allegedly, there had been three misfires and minor injuries from guns on set earlier in production, the union crew had complained about low pay, long hours and, critically, a big lack of safety on set and things got bad enough that they walked off the project.

    Rather than address any of those issues, the production hired a bunch of non-union local guys and forged ahead and now the cinematographer is dead and the director is injured.

    This is literally the kind of stuff that prompted the IATSE strike.

    Wow, I did not know that. That's just awful and completely irresponsible. Heads need to roll for this.

    I'm fine, I'll be fine, thanks. I wasn't going to post about this, but I went on autopilot.

    He was an older dog, so we knew it could happen.

    I'm deeply sorry for your loss, Tami. I lost one of my two cats in June, so I understand how you feel.

    I know the feeling. It always hurts even when you know it can happen.
