Alec Baldwin May Not Have Pulled Trigger
in Deadly Shooting On ‘Rust’ Set: DA

Original Article

Posted By: Black Conservative Voice, 2/20/2022 6:41:37 AM

Alec Baldwin may have fired the shot that killed “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins without pulling the gun’s trigger, a New Mexico prosecutor says. Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies told Vanity Fair she had watched Alec Baldwin’s bombshell interview with ABC in December and was drawn to the actor’s claim that he did not pull the trigger. “You can pull the hammer back without actually pulling the trigger and without actually locking it,” Carmack-Altwies said. “So you pull it back partway, it doesn’t lock, and then if you let it go, the firing pin can hit the primer of the bullet.”


Back almost 150 years ago, a Colt 45, among other handguns of that time period had the firing pin incorporated into the hammer of the weapon. The problem was if you have the firing pin resting against a live round in the chamber, and if you dropped the weapon, or had pulled back the hammer back halfway and released it, the live round would be fired. That is why a 6 shooter was always loaded with 5 rounds, instead of 6, with the hammer/firing pin resting against an empty chamber to prevent an accidental discharge. Design changes have made this impossible in the past 100 years. So the question is, was Mr. Baldwin holding a circa 1876 revolver, or a modern replica of the weapon? Law enforcement has the weapon in its possession. A simple question to ascertain. Whether he pulled the trigger or not is moot! The gun was in his hand...he's responsible! It may change the charge, but he still is responsible!

You can split all the straws you want. Mr. Baldwin aimed a LOADED gun at another person and fired it. Never run with scissors, never play with a loaded gun. Simple truths. You wanna play with a gun, get a squirt gun.

I think his defense might somehow try to use this as the reason that the gun went off. When I was a kid, one of my favorite toys of ALL time was my Mattel "Fanner 50". You could shoot all six cartridges by pulling the hammer back with the side of your free hand- as was often portrayed in westerns. I think you held the trigger part way back while 'fanning' it. Can't really remember clear back to 1959 ,but it ranked right up there with one of the best Christmas presents EVER!

There are degrees of culpability, as there are a range of possible charges. Not every death due to human action is murder. Without malice and intent then causing a death by committing a stupid thoughtless act is manslaughter. An idiot who accidentally discharges a weapon and causes a death can be found guilty of manslaughter and pay with some years of prison time, but apparently some fellow elites plan to exempt Mr. Baldwin from such a penalty. Fortunately for Mr. Baldwin he is not a police officer and his victim is not a person of color.

OP makes a good point. In TV and movie Westerns, shooters were usually shown firing six rounds from their "six shooters". Historians of that time period knew that most people who carried six shooters loaded only five rounds, keeping the chamber on which the hammer rested empty for the reason OP mentioned. Well done, sir. In my opinion, this doesn't relieve Baldwin of responsibility. As the producer it was his job to hire a competent armorer who knew how those weapons worked. He also should NEVER have pointed the gun at her without checking it first.

I collected and still have those old Colt and Colt clones today. The single action six shooter has to cycle completely for the bullets to align and exit the barrel. If the cylinder is moving and not locked in the bolt stop it won't fire, there is no halfway. Baldwin had to pull the hammer all the way to battery if he didn't pull the trigger then the trigger spur (tip) was broken off but Baldwin held the firearm and it fire whether he pulled the trigger or not.

Baldwin still pointed the gun at someone. A gun safety no no. Even if he had or hadn't had his finger on the trigger or hammer, the gun was still pointed at someone, and there was still a real live round in the chamber.

BAD GUN! BAD GUN! I have had firearms in my house for over seven decades. I can attest that all of the firearms I have come in contact with were well-behaved. Even when loaded with ammunition, they never initiated an attack on anyone. Admittedly, they never swept the floor or emptied the dishwasher, but they were clearly SAFE tools to have around the home. They could only become unsafe if a person ignorant or inexperienced with handling firearms were to put their hands on them. I would really hate to see an innocent revolver go to prison for manslaughter instead of Alec Baldwin--as the liberals would support given their rationale on firearms and liberal actors.

This is a load of crapola. Old-style single action revolvers have to have the hammer cocked all the way back to fire. If the hammer isn’t cocked all the way back, the next cartridge in the cylinder won’t line up into position so that the firing pin on the hammer contacts the primer in the cartridge to set it off. It was true 150 years ago, and it’s still true today. Baldwin can dissemble all he wants. It won’t change the fact that he, alone, is responsible for the death that resulted from his gross negligence.

OP is correct. If this was a modern replica, it won't fire half-cocked. It has a transverse safety bar that prevents it. Your finger could slip while cocking it, but it won't fire. I can't imagine that they would be using original Colts in a movie. Some originals sell for eye-watering amounts. I had a Ruger Vaquero several years ago and it was fail-safe in that regard. It was in .44 magnum and I had to sell it when it got too much for my arthritic hand. Like a lightening bolt hitting the end of your arm. Baldwin probably had it fully cocked with his finger on the trigger (another safety violation) and maybe it had a light trigger pull. He is responsible along with whover allowed a "hot" gun on set..

The world is stupid enough and the media is slimy enough to believe anything. Even something as simple as how a revolver works. Baldman's defense is he was waving the gun around, pointing it at the cinematographer to show her how it would look in the scene and it 'went off.' Because as a veteran actor, who has handled hundreds of pistols in many movies, he somehow forgot every rule of using a weapon in a movie. He pulled the trigger or pulled back the hammer, but he activated it. NO reason to do that if all you wanted to see was how it looked when he looked into the camera. He can rightfully put some blame the idiot in charge of controlling weapons on set, but the ultimate responsibility is on him and he knows that. Anyone who agrees with him is a fool and excusing manslaughter and criminal negligence.

Question, so why is he pulling the hammer back. In many old westerns you see cowboys firing their guns by using the palm of their hand to pull back the hammer and firing off shots in rapid fashion. This claim is only meant to confuse the situation to help Alec Baldwin out of a very tough spot. This guy will claim ignorance while people know he has been in enough westerns to know how to handle a six shooter.

I watched a Jimmy Stewart movie last night, Bend In The River, where easterners were traveling to Oregon, mid 1800-s, to set up farms in Oregon. Stewart played a reformed criminal - unusual part for him - and there were lots of pistol shootouts. And when Jimmy was shooting the bad guys, he was fanning the hammer on his 6 shooter. Those early revolvers were single action - the shooter had to pull back on the hammer for each shot. And part the myth of the West, but maybe true, is that cowboys loaded 5 of the 6 chambers with live rounds, but would roll up a ten dollar bill,. and insert it into the empty chamber - to pay their own funeral cost. One of my pistols is a Colt Detective Special, 38 special, 6 shots. When I carry it, I keep the cylinder under the hammer empty, even though it is a double action. I am super careful. As far as Baldwin is concerned, and his movie, he aimed the pistol at the camera, at the direction of his cinematographer. She wanted a dramatic film of the loaded pistol pointed directly at her camera. She called the shot - no pun intended. The problem was that she could see the bullet tips, looking directly into the front of the pistol, so the specially crimped blank cartridges would show up on the film. So the inexperienced armorer may have responded to the request to make up some blanks without the crimps, for realism. And she made a mistake. Who is criminally liable? The armorer, in my opinion, which I value highly. Who shares criminal guilt with her? Alec Baldwin the producer, but not Alec Baldwin the actor. Who else shares tort liability? Baldwin the producer, the dead cinematographer, and the assistant director, who was wounded - he lined up the shot.\ Finally, watch some reruns of Gunsmoke. Take careful note of how pistols are aimed slightly to the side of their opponent. There is a flattening effect on film, sort of hiding that shot to the side, but a close look will show it to you. Criminal charges? involuntary manslaughter would be appropriate.

If this is what he did, the gun is over a hundred years old. But that’s not important. We will find that he did not pull the trigger, he did not point the gun, he was not even there, he was not in the state, he was receiving Europes award for talking shoot to gun owners in front of thousands of people at the time the gun pointed itself at the victim and went off by itself.

“I didn’t know too much about guns, certainly not about 1850s-era revolvers. So when I first heard that, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s crazy,’ ” she told Vanity Fair. One... we are not dealing with an 1850s era cap and ball revolver. It is a modern replica of a model 1873 Colt single action cartridge firing revolver. Two.... I am knowledgeable and experienced in the use of both [50 years]. Unless the firing mechanism has been modified, a single action revolver will not fire if the hammer is partially drawn and released, it will drop to half-c---k. There is an audible ''click-clack-clock'' sound when a colt single action is brought to full c---k position. Some can be modified to a hair trigger where slight pressure will cause the revolver to fire, this should not be the case in a weapon used as a movie prop. three... A colt single action will fire from full-c---- without the trigger being ''pulled'' if the trigger is held down during the ''click-clack-clock'' and the hammer released by the thumb. That is how gunfighters fanned the hammer to rapid fire while holding the trigger down. To confirm her claims, she'd have to reproduce the process repeatedly in testing and in court. Unless the weapons was modified, it will not do this. I have tried it with my own and it does not work that way. [I had to mispell a word as c----k' because this sight thinks that the word I was using is nasty, when it is actually the correct word the English language that is used in regards to bringing a firearm mechanism to the firing position. Idiots. ]

There are numerous parts to gun safety on a movie set. It sounds like the party atmosphere allowed live ammo to be loaded into the gun. Someone else was responsible for that. OK. Baldwin's responsibility was to threat the weapon (all weapons) as if it were loaded and dangerous. Instead he was playing with the trigger or hammer and pointing it at a person. His action was not a part of the script. He was carelessly fiddling around with the gun and caused it to go off. His carelessness also caused it to be aimed at a person. Sounds like involuntary manslaughter, "an improper use of REASONABLE CARE or skill while in the commission of a lawful act ", to me.

Bullshirt. He had to pull back the hammer and pull the trigger. If you pull back the hammer, and the trigger is not pulled, the hammer has a halfcock notch which catches the hammer, specifically designed to prevent this exact sort of accident. The way the Colt Single Action Army model works is extremely simple and clear. This was a modern replica of that design, and all that I know of work the same way. He manually cocked the hammer and pulled the trigger. Perhaps he didn't INTEND to, but if he hadn't done those two actions, the gun could not have fired.

Re OP comment: I have seen a video of a person with the exact model Pietta replica of the Colt 1873 testing the "bang the hammer" theory. He beat on the hammer, with the firing pin resting on a live primer, gun pointed downrange while he beat on the hammer with the only thing he had handy. a heavy steel AK magazine. The mags weigh a pound or so and are heavy thick steel. No firing was possible. A long enough drop, say from horseback height, and hitting the hammer on a rock, very well could cause a discharge in this situation, but not even pretty serious hammering. He also attempted to partially retract the hammer, just short of the halfcock notch and let if designed, at that partial retraction, there is not enough energy in the hammer to fire the cartridge, even when done four or five times on the same cartridge. Only the full hammer fall from fully back position, which requires the trigger to be pulled, has enough energy to pop the primer, and fire the cartridge. Sorry, this excuse is BS.

Most "old West" handguns were single action only, meaning one must pull back the hammer, typically with one's thumb. I tested my vintage single action .357 revolver and found that when pulling the hammer back with my thumb there are three distinct clicks where internal mechanisms are both blocking the firing pin from a hammer strike, placing the hammer in a "half-set" position that also does not allow firing, and the fully set position that requires the trigger to be pulled to fire the weapon. I used the word "set" instead of the proper word for the hammer's pulled back status that rhymes with "clock" and also means "male chicken" but the site's naughty work filter blocked my use of the right word. All bets are off if when you are setting the hammer and your finger is inside the trigger guard. Light pressure on the trigger will enable the gun to fire when one takes their thumb off of the hammer. It is highly possible that a person who does not first check to see if a gun is loaded, as soon as the gun is in the hand, would also be ignorant and careless enough to have their finger inside the trigger guard, touching the trigger. A hallmark of a single action revolver, vs a double action firearm, which requires a longer trigger pull in order to set and release the hammer to hit the firing pin so the gun goes "bang," is that single action guns typically have require very light pressure on the trigger to enable firing. Used properly, the light trigger pull enhances accuracy, as a longer, harder pull causes the barrel to either be pushed to the left or pulled to the right for a right-handed shooter. Baldwin is still responsible for the woman's death, even though the female amorer, responsible for the gun's configuration, may be complicit.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said Monday that his country wants to hold a peace summit at the United Nations by the end of February but that Russia should first face a war crimes tribunal in an international court. "Every war ends in a diplomatic way. Every war ends as a result of the actions taken on the battlefield and at the negotiating table," Kuleba told the Associated Press on Monday. "The United Nations could be the best venue for holding this summit because this is not about making a favor to a certain country." United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres could serve as the mediator at a potential peace summit, Kuleba said.

At least 39 people have died from the wintry weather wreaking havoc across the U.S. over Christmas weekend. The highest number of fatalities is in New York state, where 17 people have died in the wake of a massive snowstorm, according to New York Gov. Kathy Hochul. In the middle of this wintery devastation, certain individuals decided this was an opportunity to destroy local businesses by looting them. At approximately 1730 EST, reports began to emerge in local media of looting incidents in Buffalo, NY, where residents are becoming desperate after three days of intense snowfall and cold temperatures. New York State Police confirmed the looting incidents.

When fall comes around, everyone starts thinking about Christmas. People are getting their shopping lists ready and picking up items for their parties. For kids, this is the perfect opportunity to show off how good they’ve been during the year. Unfortunately, Christmas can also bring some very sad and tragic episodes. We’re not talking about getting the wrong size of clothes or the wrong video game system, either. Many times, people encounter terrible family situations, illness, or death. Anyone who watches the news will hear about something horrific happening during the holiday. Having to deal with a terrible scenario is something no one expects during such a joyous season.

The NYPD’s top cop had some fun on Twitter on Christmas day, posting a photo of a person dressed as the Grinch in the back of a police car. The tweet from Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell’s office said cops “arrested” the holiday-hating, Dr. Seuss character to stop him from “stealing Christmas joy.” “Christmas in NYC is safe,” the tweet reads. “Thanks to your NYPD the Grinch won’t be stealing any Christmas joy this year. Merry Christmas!”

Hunter Biden’s legal defense against both the Justice Department and congressional probes could cost more than $100,000 per month, legal experts told Breitbart News, as the scandal-scarred first son faces mounting scrutiny for his mysterious business practices. According to Hunter’s previous statements, he is not cash-rich. Hunter was nearly penniless while Joe Biden was vice president, living paycheck to paycheck after out-of-control spending, according to Hunter’s ex-wife. From 2018-2019, Joe Biden even committed to wiring Hunter $100,000.

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Steve Rattner, who served as counselor to the Treasury Secretary in the Obama administration, stated that fiscal policy, like “the federal budget deficit, as well as various other things that the White House can do, have been mostly going the wrong way.” And the omnibus bill will lead to “more inflation, not less inflation.” Rattner said, “Well, unfortunately, the policies outside of the Fed’s regime, which are basically what we call fiscal policy, the federal budget deficit, as well as various other things that the White House can do, have been mostly going the wrong way.

Afew years ago, I bought a used Tesla, not because I’m a car nut but because I had been a hypocrite. For years, I had been outspoken about the dangers of carbon emissions. Yet at the same time, I was driving an old gas-powered heap that got about 25 miles per gallon, and that sounded like a rocket launch every time I turned on the ignition.

As Buffalo begins to dig itself out from its deadliest disaster in a decade, the plights of people stuck for days in frigid homes without much food, their streets still unplowed, have reignited deep economic and racial fault lines that have long polarized the city. (Snip) As the toll on the city has become clearer, a dozen residents and community leaders said in interviews that structural issues such as poverty, food deserts, poor housing and a lack of investment by government have made the impacts on working-class, Black and Brown neighborhoods much worse. They expressed concerns that surrounding wealthier and

This is one of those stories that you’re certain is from the Babylon Bee, and that is stunning in its implications when it turns out to be the truth. In this case, the truth is that, in accordance with UN and WEF climate recommendations, the city of Oxford (home to the famed university) approved plans mandating that citizens may not drive more than 15 minutes distance from their homes without permission. It’s called the “15 Minute City” and is intended to reduce auto emissions. Mostly, though, it will reduce liberty, which is what climate change madness has always been about.

James Cameron has made some of the best action movies ever. Terminator, Terminator 2, Aliens. Even True Lies was pretty good. I thought Titanic sucked, and Avatar was a snooze, but Cameron has a few greats to be proud of. But he isn’t proud of them. In fact, without naming these movies he implies he wished he never made them. They “fetishize” gun violence, and he is done with that. Guns make him sick to his stomach now. He is so done with gun violence, in fact, that he has made a war movie (Avatar 2 is indeed a kind of war movie, in which the human beings

Biological assimilation into femininity has long been the final frontier for transgender activists — a Rubicon they had not yet been able to fully cross. Aspirational transgenders can get various sordid surgeries to appear more feminine; they can adopt feminine social roles, but they could never really become fully biologically female. This nags at the LGBTQ+++™ community something fierce, as biological reality always belies the religious conviction that “transgender women are women,” full-stop. They wish they could menstruate because, like transgender Pinocchios, they want desperately to be real girls, despite the deep-seated and dysphoric knowledge that their goal is impossible. For instance, transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney explains

President Joe Biden reportedly does not trust the Secret Service to protect him, even though the agency has appeared to slow-walk disclosing documents related to Hunter Biden’s alleged gun violations. According to Chris Whipple’s new book, “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,” Biden does not trust the Secret Service because some of them allegedly do not support him politically. “A bigger problem was Biden’s discomfort with his Secret Service detail; some of them were MAGA sympathizers. He didn’t trust them,” Whipple wrote. “The Secret Service is full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative.” Whipple makes Biden appear paranoid

Being all uber-woke you can be has just about brought the Army to its knees. In this day and age, they’ve fallen so far down the rabbit hole anymore that they can’t get anyone who’s their normal target recruit to sign up to save their lives. Or anyone else’s, for that matter. Their recruiting numbers are dismal. …The service fell 15,000 recruits short of its fiscal 2022 goal and it cut its goal for total number of soldiers in fiscal year 2023 by an additional 15,000, suggesting that it sees a longer-term problem.

Italy’s decision to take extra precautions with Chinese travelers paid off on Wednesday as two flights from China landed in Milan and half of the passengers tested positive for Covid-19. Italy was one of four countries that announced they would impose coronavirus restrictions on Chinese travelers because a massive wave of coronavirus infections is ripping across China, racking up millions of cases in a single day — but the tyrannical Chinese government decided to abandon almost all of its disease control protocols with almost no preparation for the consequences, loosen up travel restrictions, and begin handing out passports just in time for the Lunar New Year holiday.

The outlet records the name change submission was one of four filings made in the case originally settled back in March, 2020. The case was reopened in September when the son of President Joe Biden sought child support payment adjustments due to “substantial material change”
