Alec Baldwin proposes a solution to prevent firearm accidents on the set of the film

Alec Baldwin on Monday recommended that police be present on the set during the gunfighting scenes.

“Every film / TV that uses a weapon, fake or otherwise, must have a police officer hired by the production on set to specifically monitor the safety of the weapon,” the actor wrote on social media.

Last month, Baldwin accidentally fatally shot cameraman Galina Hutchins on the set of Rust. He rehearsed a “draw,” which resulted in him pointing a revolver – which was declared “cold” or lacking real ammunition – at Hutchins and director Joel Sousa, according to affidavit. The pistol fired, and Hutchins was wounded by a warhead and died. Sousa suffered a shoulder injury.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office in New Mexico is still investigating and no charges have been filed.

The incident prompted Hollywood to rethink how gunfight scenes are filmed.

In response to the tragedy of Dwayne “The Rock,” Johnson promised to avoid the use of real weapons in the films he directs in the future. “We’re going to switch to rubber weapons and will take care of that in the (post-production) stage,” he said. “We won’t worry about dollars; we won’t worry about how much it costs. “

However, Baldwin’s proposal for the police to be present on set drew criticism from the Daily Beast writer Tirhaki Love.

“This is not only just a terrible idea, as opposed to simply using fake weapons and ensuring that the people working with those weapons are well rested and, more importantly, are really well trained, but it is also an act of surrender to the right … winged outrage, ”wrote Love.
