This occurred cause Alec was lazy and did not follow proper gun safety guidelines REQUIRED by his actor's union: he expected what was handed to him to be good to go. Had he followed the gun safety guidelines,he would've done his safety check. He was negligent in failing to do so. https://t.co/93P68DtIHb— 🥓Texas Home of the FREE 🇺🇸 (@DetRockCity13) October 22, 2021
