Stupid people can't distinguish between fiction and reality.

Jason Alexander spent years being insulted in public for the role he played in the movie Pretty Woman.

Unfortunately being a republican is now a nearly Surefire sign of stupidity and they can't tell the difference between Alec Baldwin playing a fictional version of Trump and somebody dying in a terrible accident involving Alec Baldwin that's real.

It's interesting how the BBC is more focused on the blonde victim than the shooter.

"shooter". What a crock.

No matter the politics, Baldwin probably deserves at least a manslaughter charge for this. Such as anyone NOT a celebrity would likely get.

I guess Republicans got tired of giving "thoughts and prayers" for the victim of shootings.

It's just going to encourage the Republicans to be even more indecent.

These people have no shame. They're like feral animals.

Which is just another way of saying they are Ayn Rand's Supermen. Unbound by their own personal morals or the ethics of society.

When I'm especially angry at rand I just remind myself that a good chunk of the movie Blazing Saddles is a giant f*** you ayn Rand.

#4 Are you kidding? People shoot people dead all the time in the US and an 'oopsie' is all that is required.

He should. Even if the armorer is to blame, Baldwin pointed the gun at a person and pulled the trigger. That can't be blamed on the armorer, nor can I imagine on any planet within a thousand light years that this is acceptable behavior with ANY gun, much less one that the trigger puller did not check to ensure it was unloaded.

Gun safety 101 again: NEVER point a gun at a person unless you intend to kill him.

Addendum to that rule: If for some sick reason you want to point a gun at a person and pull the trigger, but don't want him to die, make sure the gun is unloaded. Don't take the word of a third party that it is. Good idea, doesn't everyone think?

In the English language, "shooter" is an applicable term to someone who fires a gun. What do you call a person who shoots a gun?

If they dont think it's a real gun then they're a victim.

We get it. Baldwin hates your cult leader so you hate baldwin. Like a trained dog.

Go get another new username already. Maybe FIDO would be appropriate this time.

Republican candidate attempts to exploit the terrible tragedy on the set of Alec Baldwin's film, for political gain.

Democrats should call out the Republican's bluff and suggest sweeping gun control bills.

Regardless.

Republicans are making a bigger deal out of Alec Baldwin shooting someone with a gun he thought was blank than they did when Dick Cheney shot someone with a gun he knew was loaded.

Baldwin probably deserves at least involuntary manslaughter charge for this.

Involuntary manslaughter.

Actually the dumbest crap ever posted here or anywhere is by those incapable of logically disputing a point and resort to ad hominem.

For acting? That's pretty rough man.

While he's not wrong he would NEVER call out lefties for the same behavior, which is rather constant.

Baldwin pointed the gun at a person and pulled the trigger.

My understanding is that he pointed the gun at the camera and the people that were shot were behind the camera.

#21 - wrong again, obsessed troll. Ad hominem is Latin for 'to the man' (hominem is singular, not plural) indicating insulting another person to discredit them rather than present opposing fadts. I made a general statement about people who are incapable about debating a point, not referring to singular person.

Perhaps you should focus more on your education and less on trolling me. Just a friendly suggestion, legallyyourdead.

Aren't you progressives proud as punch to have people like legallyyourdead whose posts never rise above drive by schoolyard taunts on your team?
