N.J. Bears Down On Actor Bearing BB Gun

posted on January 28, 2016

WPIX-TV in New York reported Wednesday that a stand-up comedian and actor in Woodbridge, N.J., is facing jail time for using a BB gun in a scene for a movie. 

Carlo Bellario responded to a Facebook post looking for someone to play a gangster in a budget movie called Vendetta Games, for no pay. Bellario was cast in a chase sequence that involved pretending to fire a prop gun out a truck passenger window. Alarmed neighbors called police. 

“The producer didn’t have a permit to film,” Bellario told WPIX. “Didn’t have a permit for the gun, which turned out to be a BB gun.” He spent four days in jail, and now faces five to 10 years in prison for unlawful possession. 

New Jersey’s anti-gun regime has also snared a Pennsylvania mother driving to her son’s birthday party; a North Carolina utility worker performing storm relief; and a father moving his possessions in the process of divorce. N.J. officials also delayed Carol Bowne’s gun permit; she was stabbed to death by her estranged boyfriend in her driveway.
