    Default WTF!!! Baldwin now says "The trigger wasn't pulled. I didn't pull the trigger"

    He's really desperate now. It was a single action revolver and so he must have thumbed back the hammer and then pulled the trigger. And he didn't check the gun to see if it was loaded either . He's guilty as hell.

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/12/01/enter...iew/index.html

    dec 1 2021 (CNN)Alec Baldwin told ABC News he never pulled the trigger of the gun that shot director of photography Halyna Hutchins on the set of "Rust."

    "The trigger wasn't pulled. I didn't pull the trigger," Baldwin said in an excerpt released Wednesday from the sit-down interview -- his first since the October shooting.
    When asked why he pointed the gun at Hutchins and pulled the trigger when that wasn't in the script, Baldwin said, "I would never point a gun at anyone and then pull the trigger, never."

    Baldwin also said he has no idea how a live bullet got in the Colt .45 revolver he used in the scene. "Someone put a live bullet in the gun, a bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property," he said.

    He might have needed it for self-defense.

    With a single action revolver like Baldwin was using, if the hammer is down, it won't fire. If the hammer is half-cocked, it won't fire (this is considered the "safe" position and necessary to load the gun). You MUST cock the hammer back fully and then the gun will fire one time. The weapon in this case had to be fully cocked by somebody and then somebody had to pull the trigger.

    If you hit the hammer real hard with something, it might fire even with the hammer down. Not that anything like that happened here. Baldwin is just making crazy stuff up because that's all he can do.

    I suspect that you're correct.

    This was murder. I mean if derek chauvin and the mcmichaels (arbery killers) are guilty of murder then so is baldwin. In truth all of them are guilty of manslaughter and deserve maybe 10 years.

    Well - he's in trouble. He fired the gun and he was also co-producer of the movie. He might go to prison and lose his fortune. So its - DENY DENY DENY.

    He’s trying to float the idea that the firearm malfunctioned it will take a firearms expert less than six minutes to annihilate his story.

    “I didn’t pull the trigger,” Baldwin said. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never.”

    OK case closed

    So will Baldwin sue the gun manufacturer?


    Baldwin’s gun was a Pietta long Colt 45 single-action revolver which requires manually cocking the hammer before pulling the trigger. Did the gun cock itself *and* pull the trigger?

    I've been around guns a lot and they don't just go off like this. If you drop the gun on a hard surface and it lands on the hammer, it might fire. But if it's in your hand you have to pull the trigger and with a single action revolver it does not take a strong pull. Maybe 3 pounds.
