Reporters doesn’t know what they're talking about. Shocking, I know.


A few years back the local rag, the Houston Chronicle, published this cartoon showing then President Donald Trump shooting himself in the foot with a revolver. Curious, the “revolver” was ejecting empty brass out. I knew the difference between a revolver and a semi-automatic before I was ten, but this “learned” cartoonist did not. Not surprising

I point this out because I read a recent article on Alex Baldwin’s being charged with manslaughter in the shooting on the Rust set

Alec Baldwin Will Be Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter in ‘Rust’ Killing

A gun that Mr. Baldwin was rehearsing with went off, killing the film’s cinematographer. The armorer responsible for weapons on set also faces manslaughter charges...

"However, BALDWIN fired the single action 45 long colt revolver resulting in the discharge of a projectile..." Again, Mr. Baldwin was reckless in his handing of a loaded firearm. If he wanted to practice, fine, use a "blue gun," or other no-fireable gun. But you use a read gun, it's treated as loaded at all times. 

Ms. Jacobs and Mr. Bowley, I suggest you take an NRA safety course. You need it.
