Rust shooting: Alec Baldwin calls for police to monitor gun safety on film sets

The Guardian says Alec Baldwin has urged film and TV productions to hire police officers to monitor weapons and ensure guns used in filming are safe in the wake of the fatal shooting during filming of the western movie Rust.

Baldwin accidentally shot and killed the cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on 21 October after being told the gun he was rehearsing with on the film set in New Mexico was “cold”, or safe to use, according to the Santa Fe county sheriff’s office.

“Every film/TV set that uses guns, fake or otherwise, should have a police officer on set, hired by the production, to specifically monitor weapons safety,” the actor posted to Twitter on Monday. The account has since been made private, but the message was also placed on the actor’s Instagram account.
