#3 The cast had been out shooting the guns earlier. Nobody commented on the pistol with a hair-trigger?

Of course not. He pointed the gun and pulled the trigger, and meant to do it.

#18 I'll certainly say, if the gun was already loaded and cocked, it could have well gone off without the trigger being pulled if it was unsafe to begin with. We're talking about a Peacemaker style revolver here.

I'm not making any excuses for Baldwin. That said, he could be telling the truth. Some people are pre-disposed to be unwilling to even consider that possibility, I know.

#19 "#13 Why hasn't someone been charged in this crime?"

Because the local DA hasn't yet decided whether charging Baldwin would help or hurt his run for New Mexico Attorney General later on.

#20 Many states have poured giant wads of taxpayer money into trying to lure film-making to their state. Why would they tarnish that "investment" by doing anything "filmmaker-unfriendly?"

#21 Asst Director is now saying Alec didn't pull the trigger. Now they are trying to create a 'shadow of doubt' in any jurer's mind.

Alec IS evil.

#22 As your Cowboy Action Shooting friends will tell you, if the hammer doesn't go into full lock it may very well fall on a loaded chamber. Some pull and cock in a single motion sliding the draw hand along the holster and engaging the hammer with the thumb or the web between thumb and forefinger.

The automation shows the cylinder advancing a cartridge to firing position before the hammer is fully cocked. When using a web draw the shooter must change hand positions to free the hammer before pulling the trigger. Easy to slip.

#30 I got one question: Why was there live ammo in a gun on a movie set?
That should never happen.

#31 ^A group of staff walked off the set earlier in a pay and work conditions dispute with Alec. I believe one of them swapped a blank with a live round somehow.
