Same Day Baldwin Plinked Beer Cans With Homicide Weapon

And a little later Baldwin was handed the same weapon and was told it was safe.
And he did not think to check that weapon himself.
That's really bright.
New dino thought~~Did he even know how to do that?
During my training in the Marines, I was taught to know a live round from a blank round and personally loaded both before doing any shooting.
The only time I can recall being handed a loaded weapon I did not personally load, I was a dumb kid with other dumb kids and the target was a tree in a Florida Panhandle woods.
That was the first time I ever fired anything. The weapon was a Luger a kid across a lake had snuck away from his German dad. His dad committed suicide a couple of years later..
War crimes guilt? Who knows? I've off and on wondered if he used the same gun.

    I used to go flying for a weekend outing. The pilot was a friend who rented a light plane for a few hours to keep his license up to date.

    He had a ritual, explained to me every time as if was the first time, start up and move over to the fuel pump, fill up, get out, crawl over and unscrew the fuel cap, look inside and inspect to check and confirm that the tank was full. Looking at the fuel gauge was necessary but insufficient.

    Why? It is not a mandated procedure, it was done as it is such a small cost in effort for so much extra satisfaction that all is ok. Not just for passengers and people on the ground and insurance, it a thing you do when responsible for a machine. It is something you do for yourself for your own integrity.

    You are handed a gun, different device, different checks, same sense that once in your hand what happens is up to you.

      Unless you are a pompous, biased, statist, holier-than-thou, looting Hollywood $%^*.
      Then everything that happens that doesn't conform to your agenda is "insurrection" and the fault of someone else who supports Trump.

    what matters is that he was handed a weapon and clearly did not check it

      Due to my own handgun and rifle training with the Marines, add the shotgun to both at the Alabama Department of Corrections Academy training in Selma, 21 years of Corrections annual training that include NRA
      requalifying with all three weapons and having to handgun NRA qualify to be employed by two semi-retired security jobs, me dino completely agrees.
      Nevertheless, that prior same day beer can plinking being brought up in a court of law will not help Baldwin and all directly involved in the shooting one little bit.
