Guns Don’t Kill People; Gun Control Advocates Kill People


Alec Baldwin weeping outside sheriff’s office.


The Sante Fe Sheriff’s office said in a statement that cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and director Joel Souza “…were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 68, producer and actor.”

According to Variety, Alec Baldwin fired the prop gun on the set of Rust in New Mexico Thursday, accidentally killing Halyna Hutchins and wounding Souza. The movie was filming at the Bonanza Creek Ranch, a popular production location south of Santa Fe.

The Sheriff’s office received a 911 call reporting the incident at 1:50 PM Mountain Time. According to investigators, “…it appears that the scene being filmed involved the use of a prop firearm when it was discharged. Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged.”

Deadline previously reported that “…a principal castmember cocked a gun during a rehearsal, unaware that there were live rounds in it, hitting two people, a man and a woman. The man was hit in the shoulder, while the woman was airlifted to the hospital for stomach surgery.”

Possibly if Alec Baldwin was not such an enemy of firearms ownership, he might, in his sixty-eight years of life, had become acquainted with the ordinary standard rules of safe gun handling. He would have known better than to point a gun at people and pull the trigger. Especially he would have known better than to depress a trigger never bothering to look and find out whether or not the gun was actually loaded.

I extend Baldwin all the kindness and consideration that he’s always demonstrated towards those that disagree with him politically. He is only concerned about how this damages his brand, wait and see.


The propman (property man) is supposedly the expert who is responsible for the firearm and the ammunition load that gives the flash, smoke, or muzzle blast that is required for a particular shot. I have been told that some stage guns have partially blocked barrels or chambers to prevent the firing of live ammo. It is possible that a “hot” blank blew out a barrel plug or the pressure caused another mechanical failure.

Hey! Movies are not real world. Actors “shoot” other actors all the time, if it is in the script. The propman is supposed to keep all the idiots safe from themselves. Either the propman or the firearm failed.

The descriptions come from illiterate reporters or participants who want to stay out of court.


The parking lot breakdown; one of his most moving scenes, no?

This crazed, anti-gun extremist just killed more people than 5,000,000 NRA members.
