‘Rust’ Death Sparks New Mexico Gun Safety Bill for Actors
By MORGAN LEE, Associated Press
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A Republican New Mexico legislator wants movie actors and other film-set professionals to undergo state-sponsored gun-safety training after the death last year of a cinematographer from a gun fired by actor Alec Baldwin.
State Sen. Cliff Pirtle of Roswell on Monday announced he introduced a bill that would require all acting and film production personnel where firearms are present to complete a safety class offered by the New Mexico Game and Fish Department.
It was unclear whether the Democrat-led Legislature will bring the bill up for debate and a possible vote during a 30-day legislative session that ends Feb. 17.
Baldwin has said he didn't know the gun contained a live round.
