Kirstie Alley On Baldwin Incident: ‘I Have Never Been Handed A Gun By An AD’

On Tuesday, Emmy Award-winning actress Kirstie Alley commented that the alleged incidents that had transpired on the movie set of “Rust,” where reports indicated that an assistant director on the set yelled “cold gun,” then handed actor-producer Alec Baldwin a prop gun with which Baldwin accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, were not typical on a set of a scene being filmed.

Alley tweeted:

No AD yells “COLD GUN” The armourer or prop person is supposed to PERSONALLY show you the gun so you can see it is empty for yourself. Then I dry fire it into the ground. I have NEVER been handed a gun by an AD & I’ve been handed 100 guns & I’ve never heard “COLD gun” in 40 years.

As The Daily Wire reported on Saturday, “court documents show assistant director David Halls yelled ‘cold gun’ to indicate that the prop weapon did not contain live rounds. Halls handed Baldwin one of three prop guns that had been set up by an armorer, unaware that the prop gun contained a live round, according to an affidavit for a search warrant obtained by KOAT.”

Actor Carl Matino echoed Alley, “I used a handgun every day on the set of my show for 9 years. No one ever used those terms. The actors always checked their weapons themselves no matter what anyone on set told them.”

Actor Adam Baldwin, who starred in numerous films, including Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” added his perspective:

“Cold Weapon/s! Cold Weapon/s On Set!” is most common declaration made when practical firearm/s brought on set. It is at this time when the bearer of weapon/s displays it/them with open, empty breach/es or cylinder/s and flashlight shone through barrel/s.
