    Well, no ****. A single-action won't fire otherwise, but to be fair, I believe he didn't THINK
    he was pulling the trigger, if you're not familiar with a revolver you could easily miss-judge
    what is just 'keeping finger on trigger' with pulling. Which it is why it's VITAL to keep your finger
    OUT side the triggerguard until you are ready to shoot. This wisdom dates back to the civil war
    for **** sake.

    Of course most of us did
    But now the big question is will there be criminal charges filed? I suspect not since I don't think there is a law against stupidity.
    There is a wrongful death lawsuite against him and this report lends a lot of weight to the plaintiff

    Or the primer in the round decided to ignite itself.
    Baldwin is lucky that it wasn't one of the others
    in the cylinder. Or perhaps the primers agreed
    among themselves which would frame Alec for
    the crime.

    So you’re saying it was a conspiracy.

    Finger shouldn't have been on the trigger, he wasn't even actively shooting for the shot yet

    Especially when you believed the gun was not loaded with live rounds. And the gun was supposed by everyone there to be loaded with 'dummy' bullets.

    Don't matter if everyone swore there were no rounds in there at all, dummy or otherwise
    You practice safe handling and treat every gun like it's loaded, no matter what.
    You practice safe handling and never EVER point it at anyone, or anything you don't want to shoot.
    Every. Single. Time. It's the discipline.

    He was TOLD where to point the gun by the directer (the woman that was shot). All this BS about gun safety is just that. BS. Every gun lover thinks he's an "expert" and that everyone else that touches a gun must automatically also be an expert. Baldwin is an actor, not a gun-lover or a gun expert. He handled the gun exactly as he was told to do assuming that the people in charge of gun handling on the set were doing their jobs. Just as he was doing his.

    Question:
    If by disregarding safety measures when you were operating a motor vehicle and drove it in a reckless manner and killed someone would you be at fault?

    He wasn't "operating" a gun. He was only pretending to. As he was being paid to do, and with the oversight of professionals. If you were pretending to drive a car because that's your job, and you were told it was not operable, yet it turned out it was running and operable, is that somehow your fault when the car bolts forward and hits someone?

    Is there a bigger agenda to this than meets the eye?

    Of course. The agenda is that everyone in Hollywood is a fool and that guns aren't dangerous. Only irresponsible foolish people are.

    But the people that make movies are just doing their jobs the same as anyone else, and guns are inherently dangerous. They are made to kill people quickly and efficiently. And they do, even in a situation where serious precautions are being taken. No human is beyond making a mistake, and because guns are designed to kill quickly and efficiently, that's what they'll do, even when we're trying to be careful.

    His lack of your "BS" got someone killed.
    Guns must be treated with systematic care.

    That wasn't his job. And the people who's job it was made mistakes. Guns kill people because that's what they are designed to do. Stop blaming Alec Baldwin for doing his job. Stop blaming humans "X, Y and Z" for making mistakes. Humans make mistakes. When you play with guns, people die. That's the bottom line. And in the making of movies, people play with guns.
