What will happen next?
There’s an ongoing investigation into the murder that took place on the set of Alec Baldwin’s new film “Rust.” People have so many questions at the moment but we don’t seem to be getting enough answers. Sort of. Several sources reveal that the crew use THE gun for “target practice” when there was nothing else to do. Yes, we are talking about the gun Baldwin used to shoot his cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
The Wrap reported that crew members used the gun that morning for live-ammunition target practice. So, this gun was used for “plinking.” You know, when people shoot beer cans with live ammunition.
The cinematographer was killed a few hours later. First assistant director David Halls told him it was a “cold gun,” and Baldwin discharged it. Well, it had live ammunition in it.
The Armorer who was in charge of the weapons decided to speak up. Her comments gave us chills!
Hannah Gutierrez Reed says she checked the gun before Baldwin got it. She claims it had no “live bullet” in it. How did that bullet end up in the gun?
Newsmax reported the same.
“Who put those in there and why is the central question,” Reed said in a statement issued by one of her lawyers, Jason Bowles of Albuquerque, New Mexico. “Hannah kept guns locked up, including throughout lunch on the day in question (Oct. 21), and she instructed her department to watch the cart containing the guns when she was pulled away for her other duties or on a lunch break.”
The statement adds, “Hannah did everything in her power to ensure a safe set. She inspected the rounds that she loaded into the firearms that day. She always inspected the rounds.”
The Armorer inspected the firearm to Halls by “by spinning the cylinder and showing him all of the rounds and then handing him the firearm.”
“No one could have anticipated or thought that someone would introduce live rounds into this set,” Gutierrez Reed’s statement said.
Reed says she did “gun safety” training with Alec Baldwin, and “fought” for more training days. She even advised the actor not to point the gun at people on set.
Guess what… She blames producers.
Baldwin is the top producer.
