Trump-hating Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger on the set of ‘Rust’ which killed cinematographer Halnya Hutchins, the FBI have said.
Baldwin fatally shot 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins and injured 48-year-old Joel Souza while filming his new movie in Santa Fe, Mexico last October.
Baldwin immediately went on the defensive following the fatal shooting by falsely claiming he didn’t pull the trigger during an interview with George Stephanopoulos.
Thegatewaypundit.com reports: The gun that Baldwin fired is a period revolver –F. Lli Pietta 45 Long Colt Revolver. You must open the loading gate to access the cylinder to load a cartridge. You then must cock the hammer manually, otherwise, it will NOT fire. Once the hammer is cocked then only slight pressure on the trigger will release the hammer and initiate the firing cycle.
[Note–There is a way to fire this revolver without cocking the trigger–you hit the hammer on the spur with a club of some sort and that can cause the firing pin to ignite the primer. But the point remains–this gun cannot be fired “accidentally.” It does not fire itself.]
Baldwin also told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos he doesn’t feel any guilt because he isn’t responsible for the fatal shooting.
“Do you feel guilt?” Stephanopoulos asked Baldwin.
“No. Someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me.” Baldwin replied.
Baldwin STILL has not been charged even though he fatally shot a woman last year.
Police in Santa Fe will not rule out criminal charges after the FBI report concluded Baldwin must have pulled the trigger, the Daily Mail reported.
