Alec Baldwin’s claim he didn’t pull trigger on ‘Rust’ questioned by sheriff: ‘Guns don’t just go off’ | Fox News

I’m sorry, but Alec Baldwin isn’t some extra that accidentally got handed a loaded gun. He is a seasoned actor with a great deal of authority on this set and along with that comes a great idea of responsibility. There is nothing to indicate that this was anything other than a tragic accident but one that resulted from gross negligence and arrogant disregard for long-established safety protocols concerning guns. Ohers may be and probably are complicit in this but the lion’s share of the responsibility belongs to the one who pointed the gun. There is no dispute as to who that is.

Alec Baldwin claimed he did not pull the trigger on the set of “Rust,” but gun experts say that a revolver firing without the trigger being pulled is unlikely. In a preview for an upcoming televised tell-all, Baldwin addresses the fact that he was holding a gun that was somehow loaded with a live bullet that should not have been on the set at all, let alone in an actor’s hand. The Oct. 21 incident left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured. During the preview, which is heavily edited for the purpose of teasing the larger interview that’s set to air Thursday evening, an emotional Baldwin states unequivocally that he did not pull the trigger.
