Loaded or not, where in the script does it call for Baldwin to aim at and shoot the photography director? 🤔 this is so freaking sad 😭 Any fool checks his weapon not just except it as it is.

Many in the industry are saying the gun was not a prop by definition.. and that it was a real gun with planks 👀 This should have been avoided and could have been which is very frustrating. My prayers go out to her friends and family. No more realistic guns with real looking gunfire shots from blanks on set.
