Blanks Can Kill You, Part MMMCCXVI
On the set of Zombie Cult Massacre, the lead actor almost had his head blown off by a blank. During the 1980s, an actor in a televisions show I never watched (it's theme was "I'm holding out for a hero") thought blanks were harmless and killed himself with one. A few years ago a Cincinnati police firing instructor was quoted after a serious accident concerning blanks as "I didn't know they were dangerous."
You'd think the Illuminati would know. Even if the gun had contained blanks, it wouldn't have been safe.
