    TOM Selleck was completely in the right here. I don't see where they can say he has a temper anyone with common sense would have done the same thing. But there are so many people lacking common sense these days.

    That was my first thought too. Squib + hot blank = lethal velocity

    IIRC Brandon Lee was hit in the head with the wad used to retain the charge in a blank round,it was close enough and happened to strike him in the head in a spot that proved fatal

    The way I read it was that for a close-up they used "dummy" rounds which were live rounds that had the powder removed, but still had a primer inserted. It is unknown how the bullet from the dummy round became lodged in the barrel, but one prevalent theory is that at some point, someone pulled the trigger, and the primer ignited, pushing the bullet into the barrel. Another theory is that the bullet was not fully seated in the casing, and fell out when the round was inserted.

    During the shootout scene, they were using blanks, which are loaded very hot for added flash and noise, and one of these being fired propelled the bullet from the barrel, which struck him in the abdomen.

    I was just about to post this same story about good ole Tom...Gotta love the guy. Think about it, so many people watch Hollywood shows that have "gun play" in them and the very actors who typically support Libtard ideology about gun control and anti-gun rhetoric are the one's who don't know a thing about basic gun safety. Good Job Magnum!

Had that of been me on that stage I would have sad to say made it into a "yelling match" and I would have pointed out "facts" that counter her "rhetoric" but he did the right thing considering his surroundings. Your not gonna win a debate like that even with the truth when the very person who frames the discussion is a Libtard like Rosie. He almost wen't there though when he started talking about the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights, maybe get them back together and put them on Fox News and see how it would go. HaHaHa..

    I do wish Mr. Selleck could work some type of commentary into his show about the real 2A situation in NYC...

    Of course, the network probably would not allow that...

    Now, if he was anti-2A...commentary along that line would be acceptable...

    He is one of the few living real-deal actors when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.

    so i sent in---If they taught the children real world things like they did through the 1960's-- rather than todays feel good political correct stuff, than people would know how to handle guns and cross the streets without killing them selves and others.
