Alec Baldwin Pulled Trigger

The Santa Fe Police Department is not ruling out criminal charges for Alec Baldwin, after a damning FBI forensics report determined he did, in fact, pull the trigger on the set of the film, Rust, that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins last year.┬áThe report has been passed on to the New Mexico District Attorney’s office for a final determination on charges. Here’s more with Don Khan Swaylo.


Another Twist In Rust Tragedy

The armorer for the film Rust was also doubling as prop assistant, according to the Los Angeles Times. The attorney for armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed said serving in both positions didn’t work out for her and an additional prop assistant was brought onto the set.

Gutierrez Reed then complained about not having a dedicated cart for firearms, begging executive producer Alec Baldwin for one before being denied. H.A. Goodman says it’s been reported that there were three firearms laid out on a cart, along with a tray of ammunition, before Baldwin’s alleged accidental shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. “This makes no sense,” Goodman says. “It’s completely unsafe, and you’re waiting for an accident to happen.”

Was Gutierrez Reed overworked? Did Baldwin again violate protocol? Many questions still remained unanswered. Here’s Goodman with more details in the unending saga of the Rust tragedy.

Armorer Wasn’t With Baldwin

H.A. Goodman says more evidence has surfaced in the shooting death of Halyna Hutchins, revealing the armorer wasn’t with Alec Baldwin in the church scene set of the film Rust when he pointed the gun at the cinematographer.

Says Goodman, “This is very bizarre. He pointed at the camera, knowing very well that Hutchins was behind the camera. And he was told never to point at a person. My question is, why did he need dummy rounds to begin with, when there was no filming?” Goodman added it was a tech prep and there’s no film or video evidence of Hutchins losing her life.

Goodman says from what we know, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, the armorer, loaded the firearm, then assistant director David Halls took the gun. The big question is how many other people handled the firearm before Baldwin used it in the tech prep? Here’s more of Goodman’s analysis.
