How the flake did Alec Baldwin accidentally blow away a cinematographer and seriously wound a director? To do this requires two things:

1. They use real guns on sets. Whoda thunk THAT ???

2. Read the *real* news some time. He was given a loaded gun--but was told it was not loaded with real bullets. A weapons master is supposed to control the weapons on a set, but in this case, an assistant director grabbed a weapon off a table/cart and handed it to Baldwin, declaring it was safe to use (with no verification from the weapons master). The assistant director likely will find future employment anywhere very difficult because he was so professionally negligent in this matter.
