Santa Fe Sheriff Adan Mendoza said 'guns don't just go off. So whatever needs to happen to manipulate the firearm, [Baldwin] did that and it was in his hands'

Santa Fe Sheriff Adan Medoza explained that firearms do not just fire. It is necessary to make the firearm work. [Baldwin]He did it and the result was in his possession’

Bryan W. Carpenter is a weapon armorer for Dark Thirty Film Services. He said that he doubts Baldwin ever pulled the trigger.

Carpenter explained to Fox News that to set the gun ablaze, one must first place your thumb on the hammer and then cock it all the way back. Once the hammer has cocked completely back, the trigger is pulled and the gun lights. It was important to note that the gun needed to be able to fire in two steps. To fire, it must be turned on and held down.

Carpenter said, “Once you have cocked the hammer back on an old west gun, it doesn’t take much to get that trigger off.”

He made these comments after Santa Fe Sheriff Adan Medoza stated to the outlet that guns don’t simply go off. It doesn’t matter what happens to the firearm. [Baldwin]He did it and the result was in his possession.

Hannah Gutierrez Reed, the film’s armourer prepared the gun (right), which Baldwin fired as it was directed at Hutchins.

She said that her client would face charges in relation to the incident, and she was shocked by this.

According to an affidavit by the Sante Fe County Sheriff’s Office, detectives are investigating whether Seth Kenney (a Hollywood veteran of 51 years) may have used recycled bullets from a prior set to supply the film with blanks and dummy rounds.

There are still investigators investigating Hutchins’ death and they have not filed any criminal charges. 

Hutchins was killed by a bullet made from homemade ammunition that an armorer in New Mexico had obtained from a film. This was to help actors train at firing ranges with makeshift ammunition.

Baldwin spoke lovingly about Hutchins during an interview that ABC aired. He said: “She was somebody who was loved and liked by all who worked with her – and who everyone admired.

It’s difficult to believe that it could be true, but it seems so real.

Baldwin responded “Yes.” when asked about the most terrible thing that had ever happened to his life. Yes, yes.’

Luper Lane has criticized the film's production as one that created the perfect storm for the tragic shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins

Luper Lane has criticized the film’s production as one that created the perfect storm for the tragic shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins

Lane Luper was the A-camera’s first assistant. He said that he left the job one day prior to the shooting due to overwork, poor gun safety, and COVID-safety not being properly enforced.

Rust believes that it was the perfect storm, according to him, of Rust the armorer, Rust the assistant director and the culture present on the set. The rushing was also a factor. Good Morning America interviewed him on the subject of the tragic shooting.

“It was not just one person. It took everything to come together for the one-in-a trillion thing to occur.

Luper stated in his resignation that there were two accidental weapons discharges and an accidental sound effects explosion around the crew.

“There were no explanations about what we should expect from these shots. Luper stated in the letter, “There have been NO explanations as to what we should expect for these shots.”

He said that crew members became exhausted from long commutes to and from their accommodations, some of which were more than two hour away.

Luper explained that in her 10 years of experience as a camera assistant she’s never been on any show where the crew’s safety was so important.

Sky News received a statement from a spokesperson for producers, saying that Luper’s claims about budget and safety were false. Luper’s accusations about budget and safety were patently false. It is no surprise considering that Luper was a camera operator and had nothing to do or know anything about budgets or safety protocol.

“As long as we cooperate in all investigations, it is limited what we can tell you,” the spokesperson stated. Safety remains our top priority.

Baldwin’s claims that he didn’t trigger the gun were questioned by some users of social media.

The trigger mechanism must be pulled on newer weapons or it will stop firing. I.E. One user tweeted, “I.E. dropped, banged heavy.” “Do you really believe that people can believe what your stupidity?

Another tweeted: “Good grief, his ‘acting’ is horrendous.” The shooter must either first cock the handgun in Western style or they don’t. The trigger was pulled on this weapon. But it wasn’t dropped.

“@AlecBaldwin held it in his hand and killed Halyna. He also wounded another. Man up, already.’
