Just when you thought the story about The shooting on the set of the movie ‘Rust’ featuring Alec Baldwin could not get anymore bizarre and convoluted … exactly that happens.
Up until now, everyone, including the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office were either under the impression, or lead to believe, that Alec Baldwin fired the shot that left the cinematographer of the film dead and the movie’s director with a bullet lodged in his shoulder.
Baldwin was said to have visited with the family of the deceased after the tragic incident, furthering the narrative that he felt guilty about his role in the accident. Of course Alec sending his condolences to the family of the deceased is not incarnating nor a bad thing, however, it is inline with the idea that he fired the fatal shot.
Well, if Baldwin is to be believed, everything we have been told about the events leading up to the fatal shooting may have been false. Either that or Baldwin is telling one of the most absurd and insane lies in the history of humanity …
‘Alec Baldwin alleged that he did not pull the trigger on the gun that fired resulting in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in a preview for his upcoming televised interview on Thursday night.
It was announced on Wednesday that Baldwin will sit down for his first formal interviewabout the fatal shooting that took place on the set of the indie-western film “Rust.” In a preview for the 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.
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.
“The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger,” Baldwin with George Stephanopoulos.
Asked by @GStephanopoulos how a real bullet got on the "Rust" set, Alec Baldwin says: “I have no idea. Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property.”

He adds: “No, no, no, no, I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger. Never.”
However, the Santa Fe Country Sheriff’s department said in a warrant that Baldwin “fired” the gun. Baldwin was holding the gun and rehearsing a scene for the movie when a live round rang out, hitting Hutchins before getting stuck in the shoulder of director Joel Souza. In the heavily edited preview clip, Baldwin does not seem to deny that he was holding the gun at the time, with the distinction seemingly being that he did not pull the trigger.’
We have also been told that there were at least 3 incidents in which guns were misfired or misused on the set. The problem was so bad that member of the cast walked off the set hours before the tragic shooting.
Who do you think is telling the truth, if anyone is at all? Will the guilty parties be held to account or will this all be swept under the rug because the man involved is a rich movie star? While I pray for justice, I must confess my faith in the justice system, especially when it comes to the rich, famous and powerful, is at an all time low …
