The only gun control that Alec Baldwin is unfamiliar with is the ability to control a gun in his own hands, outside of that the actor is all about enforcing laws that punish everyday Americans for doing nothing wrong.

One would think that Baldwin would remain quiet on the topic following the shooting on the set of Rust but apparently not.

Baldwin recently took to social media in order to promote gun control policy.

In an Instagram post, Baldwin wrote “The very childhoods of our kids interrupted by this insanity. We regulate many things in this country in the interest of public health and safety. Drugs, cars, professional licenses, etc. We need gun control reform. Now.”

Alongside his call for action, Baldwin had posted a video from Occupy Democrats, a social media-based activist group, that showed what appears to be a little league game interrupted by gunfire in the distance.

The video was captioned by Occupy Democrats with “Just IN: 58 Gunshots interrupt little league baseball game in South Carolina. This is what the NRA has done to America

Baldwin’s call for more gun control comes just days after he and his company were blasted for “willful” safety lapses that resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

As we pointed out in our previous article on the Baldwin shooting:

New Mexico’s Occupational Health and Safety Bureau released its findings Wednesday and in those findings it blasted the Rust Movie Productions LCC for what they described as “willful” safety lapses that resulted in the death of Halyna Hutchins. The state of New Mexico fined the company $137,000 for these safety violations, this number is important because this is the maximum amount allowed under state law.

Baldwin’s lawyers are playing this off as a win and an “exoneration” for Baldwin because they claim his role on production was limited to approving script changes and creative casting. The statement read in part “we appreciate that the report exonerates Mr. Baldwin by making clear that he believed the gun held only dummy rounds.” “We are pleased that the New Mexico officials have clarified these critical issues,” the statement continued.
