Lawsuit Claims Alec Baldwin Intentionally Fired The Shot


You know what they say about the dog that barks the loudest, right?

Alec Baldwin is perhaps the most outspoken anti-gun celebrity in Hollywood, yet he stars in plenty of films where violence is portrayed and weapons are brandished.

He recently became the topic of national attention when he allegedly took a loaded gun, and proceeded to shoot and kill a crew member, and injure the director on the set of a new feature film called “Rust”.

Many theories abound as to why he did it, what his intentions were, if it was at all intentional, or rather just an accident and a tragic mistake.

A new lawsuit alleges that Baldwin did “intentionally” fire the shot; however, we have to note that at this point in time all of this is just conjecture. A lawsuit can go either way, these are merely allegations—that doesn’t make them true.

That being said, Baldwin is the walking epitome of liberal hypocrisy. These people walk around with the nerve and the gaul to call us murderer, gun nuts, and reckless individuals.

They walk around here pontificating to the rest of us on how we should act, what we should do, and who we need to be.

These are the same people who take up prosecutorial positions in the court, can’t maintain trigger discipline, and mindlessly point rifles at people….

Here’s more on the pending lawsuit:

Law & Crime gave us a summary of the tragic events:

The shocking on-set shooting took the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins while wounding director Joel Souza. Mitchell, who is being represented by powerhouse Hollywood attorney Gloria Allred, is suing because she was allegedly injured during the incident.

In contrast to an earlier lawsuit filed by the movie’s gaffer, Serge Svetnoy, Mitchell’s lawsuit alleges that Baldwin and others committed intentional and deliberate acts.


The New York Post provided more details:

The attorney added the events that led to the shooting does not constitute “simple negligence” because Baldwin, the producers and others were “reckless” by not following strict guidelines when it comes to having live ammunition and guns on a set.

In the complaint, Mitchell said Baldwin, “being an industry veteran,” should have known that a Prop Master or an Armorer is the only person who should hand him a gun. Mitchell said the Assistant Director should not have handed Baldwin the gun, and that the actor should’ve known that he could not rely on the Assistant Director’s representation that it was a “cold gun.”
