He keeps this up, the Grim Reaper may get him before the law does.
What sentence would you suggest?"District court judge Mary Marlowe Sommer sentenced Halls to a six-month suspended sentence with unsupervised probation, a $500 fine, 24 hours of community service and a firearms safety class."
None. Other than the person responsible for firearms, no one else should have been charged. It would be difficult for anyone else to make sure there were no live rounds, short of emptying the gun out and inspecting each round. And even then, that person would have to be experienced enough with firearms to know the difference. That is why we hire experts. Charging anyone else makes it look like a cash grab.What sentence would you suggest?
looks like a pretty long sentence.What sentence would you suggest?
I'd agree. The more people involved in the chain, the greater the chance of fuck-ups.None. Other than the person responsible for firearms, no one else should have been charged.

Using an automotive analogy, if you take your car in for new tires, and 5 miles down the road a wheel comes off and kills someone, it is not the driver's fault. Now, if the driver went 200 miles without getting the wheel nuts checked, there could be some culpability on the driver since it is recommended to have wheel nuts retourqued after 100 km.
Do they actually think anyone is going to watch this thing now?Alec Baldwin resumes filming 'Rust' in Montana

Alec Baldwin has resumed filming ‘Rust’.
Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed on the set of the movie in October 2021, but Alec resumed filming at the Yellowstone Film Ranch in Paradise Valley, Montana, on Friday.
The Hollywood star and his wife Hilaria Baldwin were seen having a sushi dinner together near the Montana set on Thursday.
An eyewitness told PEOPLE: “They were in a good mood. They seem in good spirits.”
Alec and other ‘Rust’ producers settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Matthew Hutchins, Halyna’s widower, in October.
Hutchins has also been brought on board as an executive producer, as part of the settlement agreement.
Earlier this month, meanwhile, prosecutors warned that dropping involuntary manslaughter charges against the actor “does not absolve [him] of criminal culpability”.
Special prosecutors Kari Morrissey and Jason Lewis warned that “charges may be refiled” after further investigations take place.
The pair said in a statement: “Over the last few days and in preparation for the May 3, 2023, preliminary hearing, new facts were revealed that demand further investigation and forensic analysis in the case against Alexander ‘Alec’ Rae Baldwin, III.
“Consequently, we cannot proceed under the current time constraints and on the facts and evidence turned over by law enforcement in its existing form. We therefore will be dismissing the involuntary manslaughter charges against Mr. Baldwin to conduct further investigation.
“This decision does not absolve Mr. Baldwin of criminal culpability and charges may be refiled. Our follow-up investigation will remain active and ongoing.”
Armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed has also been charged with involuntary manslaughter over the tragedy, and the pair confirmed that the case against her is still going ahead.
The prosecutors said: “Charges against Hannah Gutierrez-Reed remain unchanged.”
