Lawmaker questions if laws would have stopped incident

New Mexico state lawmaker Antonio “Moe” Maestas, an Albuquerque lawyer and champion of his state’s film incentives, questioned whether any safety legislation could have prevented the fatal shooting on the set of “Rust.” “How can you disincentivise an involuntary act?” he asked.

A prop master for more than 30 years told The Associated Press: “They shouldn’t be in the truck. They shouldn’t be in the same car, you really have to make sure your inventory is totally separate from the real world and everything you bring on set is safe.”

Gun safety laws for film productions under spotlight

Gun safety laws on film sets have come under the spotlight since Alec Baldwin fatally shot a cinematographer on the set of Rouiller.

Nouveau Mexique, where the incident took place on Thursday morning, has no specific safety laws for the film industry, and there are no federal US laws for the sector.

Court records show that an assistant director handed Mr Baldwin a loaded weapon and told him it was “cold,” or safe to use, before he fired. Crew members, pendant ce temps, had raised issues around safety the week before.

Officials in New Mexico have said that it will investigate and that work place safety regulations apply on film sets “ just as they do to all other workplaces”.
