ABC's 'The Rookie' bans use of live guns on set following accidental shooting on 'Rust' set

ABC's "The Rookie" will no longer use live weapons on set in the aftermath of Thursday's fatal shooting on the set of Alec Baldwin's Western, "Rust," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The cop drama primarily uses CGI to render muzzle flashes in the editing room, but has employed "live" weapons in certain instances in the past, the outlet reported. Starting Friday, however, showrunner Alexi Hawley said the series will no longer do so.

In a memo to staff obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Hawley said all gunfire on the show will now be achieved using AirSoft guns with CG muzzle flashes added after filming.

"There will be no more 'live' weapons on the show. The safety of our cast and crew is too important. Any risk is too much risk," he reportedly wrote.

1. why can't they just add the sound effects of a gun later?

and just use totally empty or fake guns? I mean they can do anything these days.

3. I pretty much don't watch any show that involves law enforcement except

for NCIS.
