Alec Baldwin calls for gun control in now viral Instagram post

Alec Baldwin, who has been accused of shooting and killing Halyna Hutchins in a tragic event while filming the movie “Rust,” has called for stricter gun regulation in order to prevent such accidental shootings.

In a Friday morning 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.”

The post was accompanied by a video shot in South Carolina showing children at a little league game diving for cover after hearing gun shots.

Baldwin allegedly shot and killed Halyna Hutchins, who was working as Director of Photography for the film. The incident is still being investigated by the New Mexico police and there are also ongoing civil lawsuits against Baldwin.

However, some have accused the actor of double standards.

“No matter your thoughts on the issue (I’m very pro-2A), I think all rational people can agree the pro-gun control movement doesn’t want Alec Baldwin as its spokesman. In fact, I can’t think of a worse person to do the job,” said a writer for The Daily Caller. “When you’ve allegedly shot and killed a woman, you should probably never lecture law-abiding citizens about needing gun control reform.”
