The difference is the venue. This was a Hollywood movie set (in New Mexico), not a standard situation such as you and I might find ourselves in. While Alec Baldwin is an experienced actor with many scenes of gunplay within his resume, he’s very much not a proper “gun guy”. I point that out because it’s paramount to the points made below about Hollywood safety protocols that do exist, and why they exist in the way they do.

What has to be a questionable strategy, however, is the amount of Hollywood celebrities who have weighed-in on the races in support of the Democrats. If you’re a Georgia voter and you see Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick and Justin Timberlake giving their opinions on who you should vote for, unless you’re a under the age of twenty-three there should be only one thought in your mind – “Shut the hell up, Hollywood.”
