Fast&Loose with Guns: Alec Baldwin & Kyle Rittenhouse prosecutor!
May 10, 2022
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Two recent headlines are stark reminders of why one should never play fast and loose with guns. On the movie set of the western "Rust", actor Alec Baldwin picked up a prop gun, pulled the trigger and accidentally killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded the film's director, Joel Souza. Baldwin had been told the gun was "cold," meaning it had no ammunition, but it was loaded with a live round. There had already been many problems on the set and there is enough blame to go around.... Then, in the Kenosha, Wisconsin courtroom, where the jury in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse was hearing closing arguments, the prosecutor, Thomas Binger, picked up a real gun - the one Kyle allegedly used - and swung it around the courtroom. If it weren't for the judge insisting upon a detective double checking that the gun wasn't loaded, Binger's 'Alec Baldwin moment' could have ended in death and injury, as well. Today's guest, Steve Wolf, is an expert on guns, movie sets and courtrooms! He will narrow in on who's to blame on the set of "Rust" and will critique how the gun was handled in court - and what should have happened in both of these scenarios.
