Daniel, who pointed out that that he’s fired more rounds on movie sets than all of his brothers and added that he believes the wrongdoing falls on the movie’s armorer, who has been named Hannah Gutierrez Reed. The initial buck and all of the responsibility of the weapon should fall on the armorer, in his opinion.
