Holy shit. What a stupid reason for someone to die.

fuck this shit baldwin should take a manslaughter charge if not negligent homicide. i don't care if jesus christ himself told him the gun was unloaded, you don't a) not check yourself, b) point it at someone, and c) pull the trigger. three fundamental gun safety violations in a row.

i wouldn't be surprised if he does get involuntary manslaughter if he did all of those things. but supposedly "Baldwin was sat in a church pew demonstrating a “cross draw”, pulling a gun from a holster on the opposite side of his body." (https://www.news.com.au/entertainmen...80230a3518d5cd)

If he pulled the trigger accidentally as he was drawing it that's a bit different than if he pointed it at someone and shot. Is that what really happened? idk. Did he know there was live ammunition on the set at all?

Obviously he still has some blame for not checking it no matter what

I would just note that the guy who shot Brandon Lee on the Crow set was not charged with anything every case is going to be a little different I'm sure, and it probably matters a lot that Baldwin was also a producer, just saying it's not a foregone conclusion

Found these screenshots on Twitter, don't know the article URLs, but they offer additional details on what a fuckhead the armorer is





These screenshots look like they're from Reddit, from a union actor, explaining who is responsible for what on a set when it comes to gun safety. It sounds like basically no one did the right thing, victims included, but they put most of the blame on the armorer and the AD

well donald has weighed in on the matter and you know i feel similarly

"But if nothing else, how do you take a gun and just, whether it's loaded or not loaded, how do you take a gun, point it at somebody that's not even in the movie and just point it at this person and pull the trigger and now she's dead?" he added.

didn't he point it at the camera and hit the person behind the camera?

(not in any way a defense of him btw)

yes, they were blocking/rehearsing the scene, where Baldwin was aiming/looking at the camera....

he was handed a "cold gun" and had no reason to believe otherwise

Didn't this production also just cop a horrific spider bite that might lead to limb amputation?

The armorer and her expensive lawyers have been putting out the claim that some saboteur put a live round in the box of blank cartridges

Included in this claim is the idea that, like, why would crew members walk off a set in a protest over safety unless they were trying to cause an accident. One lawyer said on Good Morning America, "Why would you do that [walk off in protest] other than to try to cause some incident on the set? Now, we’re not saying anybody had any intent there was going to be a tragedy — a homicide — but they wanted to do something to cause a safety incident on set. That’s what we believe happened.”

Baldwin, who seems to think his portrayal of Trump on SNL had a big impact on the election, wants to hire cops to monitor set safety

Oh, and Don Jr.'s response:
