New article about Hollywood and Guns and we're mentioned
 
http://features.hollywoodreporter.co...ith-hollywood/

The problem here is how Hollywood is ANTI GUN and yet uses guns all the time. Also the backdrop to this is the SLEW of gun control laws that California has passed .... many of them making life even MORE difficult for Armorers in California :mad:

Anyway, IMFDB is mentioned :)

That part about Mark Wahlberg and Danny Trejo not being able to use real guns due to being felons can't be true, can it? Both have extensive pages here, and they all can't be fake or non-guns.

I may be wrong as I am just repeating what I have heard rather than actually knowing it, but supposedly Mark Wahlberg is not technically a felon as his prison sentence was not long enough to class him as one by Massachusetts law.

It's funny how they imply the danger of firing blank-adapted guns at too close a range comes from casings being ejected. :rolleyes:

They did mention Brandon Lee's death



Wahlberg has shot real guns during training for Lone Survivor. The Behind the Scenes pretty much show us all the guns he's trained with.

Good for them. Still, though, any danger posed by the ejection of casings is minimal at most.

Interesting read, though clearly filled with errors that one would expect from an author who knows nothing about firearms (the 1911 was NOT originally a Taurus pistol; they're just one of many makers).

Definitely not (i.e. "Heat", "Replacement Killers" for Danny Trejo), though I am not sure what exemptions exist. Hopefully, someone who has AEAA membership can comment on this.

Maybe it's the fact that they are "movie stars" and no one has asked made them the exception.

Well there were some mistakes, but the big thing is that IMFDB got some great press.

For CYA reasons, I cannot imagine that any armory would want to take the chance that they can get away with it: They are assuming nobody in BATFE watches movies and/or reads IMDB and can figure out that said actors are convicted felons. (This is especially likely to be problematic for movies which cast rap stars and/or feature real gang members playing themselves - i.e. "Training Day.")

I would think this issue has been discussed with and decided by BATFE by now, and a work-around was found.
