Pretty bloomin obvious one, of course. I wouldn't expect any dissent really in this intelligent, liberal community.

But Alec Baldwin appears to have accidentally killed someone with a prop gun on a movie set today

Apparently blanks in a gun, are still real cartridges, in a real gun.

Yes I am afraid "blanks" are still dangerous. There is still the powder in a casing, it fires, makes a bang and a flame, gas and flame are emitted through the barrel just no bullet head. That's why troops training have the BFA on the front of weapon. (Blank Fire Attachment). We were shown the effect of this when doing our military skills training. A blank does indeed fire and as this appears to show can cause harm.

Thoughts and prayers to all concerned.

""Mr Baldwin is a co-producer of the film and plays its namesake, an outlaw whose 13-year-old grandson is convicted of an accidental murder.""

That's... weird.

What a waste of a young woman's life to probably a really stupid accident. My heart goes out to her connections. RIP Halyna Hutchins.

"Elsewhere, a T-shirt which declares: "Guns Don't Kill People, Alec Baldwin Kills People" is being sold for $27.99 (£20.32) on a merchandise site linked to Donald Trump Jr, the son of the former US President - who Baldwin has routinely mocked on Saturday Night Live.

Many have criticised the T-shirts but Trump Jr has defended the product, tweeting: "Spare me your fake sanctimony." "

Despicable.
