Law & Order: LA crew finds real gun on location set
While shooting the "Ballona Creek" episode earlier this month in Culver City, Calif., the crew came across a gun on set that had to be taken into custody by the real Los Angeles Police Department.

Can you imagine? An entire Hollywood cast and crew all wetting themselves simultaneously??

Not good. If one of the actors uses the real gun thinking it's a prop one, bad things can happen.

Just remember Brandon Lee, Bruce Lee"s son. He died after being shot during a scene for a movie- turned out to be a real gun with real ammo, not a prop with blanks.

As i recall, it was actually a real gun, but someone had shot live rounds through it, and one of the rounds was a squib. The bullet was still stuck in the barrel. When the actor fired the gun using the blank which it was loaded with, it was sufficient to propel the bullet in the barrel fast enough to mortally wound Brandon.

There was that story a while back about a high school kid who was killed, because his friend put a "prop" (real) gun up to his head and pulled the trigger. It was only loaded with blanks, but blanks still have that cardboard piece or whatever it is that does come down the barrel. At contact ranges it is still lethal.

In their shoes, I would have called the cops too. If I am out minding my own and find a gun, I'm not handling it myself. Contrary to the beliefs of some folks, guns don't act on their own, if someone leaves one leaving out, there is probably a reason.
Most tv shows/movies have some sort of technical director on set from my understanding, and for Law and Order, that would probably be a former cop, who I'm sure would try and keep the Commifornicans from doing anything dumb with a real gun.

Just ask the 'film crew' of Brandon Lee.
