#1 Regardless of the events prior to the shooting; Lee Harvey Baldwin was reckless in pointing a gun at someone and pulling the trigger. He should be held accountable along with others who made mistakes.

#2 The gun Baldwin used

They can dilute the blame all they want.

#3 Yes. It's not "what happened." It's "What Baldwin did."

#5 What I see from this.

"Aging, has been Movie Star and Strong ANTI-GUN ADVOCATE,
using Firearms to make a living."

PREDICTION
Someone will spoof this song replacing Bubba with Alex. Breaking all U-tube records for quickest million U-Tube views recorded. "Alex didn't know the gun was loaded".

Gun Safety Rule #1
When handed a firearm and told its unloaded,
Trust, But Verify.

#6 Anyone who hands you or lets you pick up a gun without says "Be careful, that's loaded," is not your friend.

#9 Union crew walked off the set in protest of pay and long hours a few hours before the fatal shooting. Wonder if one of them maliciously replaced the blanks with live rounds before walking off.

#10  If I may add the picture of the day

#11 Item 1: Yes, blanks do have a projectile. It's usually wax and paper, sometimes plastic, and it can kill. Don't believe me? Ask Brandon Lee (The Crow, Bruce Lee's son) BTW, He's dead.
Item 2: This gig is/was Hannah Gutierrez's first time as Head Armorer, she said in an interview the she didn't know if she was ready. Hmm.
Item 3: Whay would you even have live ammunition on a movie set? There's no actual need for it. It's not like you're going to really shoot something.

Right now the 83rd Airborne Litigation Division is air dropping lawyers on the set to take combat depositions and prepare tactical filings.
