NM Bill Would Require Actors To Take Safety Course From State Agency

From Santa Fe New Mexican:

Actors handling firearms on film sets in New Mexico would be required to take a gun safety course from the state Department of Game and Fish before the cameras start rolling under a bill introduced Monday.

The bill would require all actors and prop personnel “to be familiar with the deadly power of firearms and trained in proper gun safety,” a news release states. The course would teach firearms safety and responsible firearm use.

Police/Military Experience Does Not Equal Gun Expert

From Washington Examiner:

You see it all the time in news media. Former law enforcement officials or military personnel are asked to opine on how guns or gun laws work. It doesn’t matter if that person’s position had anything to do with firearms or if they’ve even fired a gun in the past decade.

The mistake is to some extent understandable. People in law enforcement or the military take gun safety training at some point in their career. So, everyone who ever served must know everything there is to know about guns. Right?

Well, of course, that’s not actually the case. Many military members only ever go through basic training and never handle a gun again after that point. Police officers in most major departments, even ones on active duty, are only required to requalify twice a year after their own training courses.
