Default Guns and actors

I've been sitting on this one for awhile: how do we determine gun usage for actors? For example, if an actor fires a gun, or holds it on someone, then it obviously counts. Same with someone picking it and examining it. And I'm told if it's in a holster. How about if someone passes the gun to someone? Or if someone grabs the gun in a struggle? Are we talking just "in control of" the gun? What about if a cop picks up a gun as evidence?

I would go with active control and possession. Just handing it off does not count (active transfer of possession). Swatting it out of someone's hand does not count. grabbing it for one millisecond during a fight does not count. They don't have to brandish it but have it in their hands in full control (like someone inspecting it carefully or loading it, etc.)

I just thought about it and asked myself "what would the general public do if they saw this? If I figured they would LAUGH and say "now that's stupid", then I would opt NOT to do whatever seems like a "stretch".
