“Did You Really Not Pull the Trigger?” – Alec Baldwin Lashes Out at New York Post Reporter Asking About Fatal Shooting on Movie Set of ‘Rust’ (VIDEO)


A New York Post reporter confronted Alec Baldwin in NYC’s Upper East Side on Monday night.

Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, asked the New York Post’s Jon Levine to leave.

“I ask you to leave,” Hilaria Baldwin said in her fake Spanish accent.

“Did you really not pull the trigger? Did it malfunction?” Jon Levine asked Baldwin referring to the actor’s claims he never pulled the trigger when he fatally shot producer Halyna Hutchins on the set of ‘Rust.’

Baldwin fatally shot 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins and injured  48-year-old Joel Souza on the movie set in Santa Fe, Mexico in October.

Baldwin absurdly claimed he didn’t pull the trigger.

The gun that Baldwin fired is a period revolver (you can read TGP’s Larry Johnson’s original post about the pistol here)–F. Lli Pietta 45 Long Colt Revolver. You must open the loading gate to access the cylinder to load a cartridge. You then must cock the hammer manually, otherwise, it will NOT fire. Once the hammer is cocked then only slight pressure on the trigger will release the hammer and initiate the firing cycle.

[Note–There is a way to fire this revolver without cocking the trigger–you hit the hammer on the spur with a club of some sort and that can cause the firing pin to ignite the primer. But the point remains–this gun cannot be fired “accidentally.” It does not fire itself.]

Baldwin also told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos he doesn’t feel any guilt because he isn’t responsible for the fatal shooting.

“Do you feel guilt?” Stephanopoulos asked Baldwin.

“No. Someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me.” Baldwin replied.

What do you think?
