    Alec Baldwin thanks supporters after 'Rust' shooting, admits incident will 'never' fully be behind him

    Alec Baldwin thanked his fans, friends and family for their support after a gun he was holding on the set of "Rust" discharged and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins earlier this year. The actor posted a 3-minute video on Instagram ahead of Christmas where he also admitted he will "never" fully be able to put the incident behind him.

    "I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all those people who sent me such kind words and best wishes and strength and hope and prayers and so forth," Baldwin starts the video before adding that he got "hundreds" of emails from supporters sending him "strength and good wishes. I am very grateful for that."

    He then addressed the tragic shooting for which he is currently under investigation.

    "I’m looking forward to some aspects of this being behind me, of course for everyone who’s involved in this it’s never going to be behind us because someone died so tragically," he said. "I never lose sight of that, not a day goes by that I don’t think about that. The only thing I care about is my wife and my kids…I'm just trying to move forward with my life and trying to get through a tough time, a really tough time."

    He called the situation "awkward" before wishing his fans happy holidays.

    Baldwin also took the opportunity towards the end of the video to remind people to "be safe, wear a mask, get the booster." He let out a small laugh before concluding: "Don't let Santa Claus down the chimney without a mask."

    Still talking about himself eh? And handing out sage advice too. Arrogant ass. I only hope this serves to deepen the hole he's in.

    If he said he was setting up a fund for her kid to go to college I might listen for two seconds. Not going to bring his Mom back though.

    The telling tale was right after the shooting, Baldwin and his wife were photographed heading into a restaurant. You might think he would lie low for awhile but no. It was life as usual. And most of the talk from him is how it will affect his life. Barely a peep about the slain woman or her family. Typical Hollywood celebrities.

    What he has been searching online for, his text and phone records should still be accessible even without the phone. Getting to them might be problematic.

    Alec Baldwin 'Rust' shooting: Movie's armorer files civil lawsuit against prop distributor
    Gutierrez-Reed filed the lawsuit Wednesday in New Mexico, citing the state's unfair-trade-practices law. She also sued Kenney for breach of contract, creation of a dangerous condition and deceptive product labels, among other things, according to the court filing obtained by Fox News Digital.

    Gutierrez-Reed requested a six-person jury and is seeking compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorney's fees and more.

    The lawsuit detailed Gutierrez-Reed's version of the events that unfolded on and before Oct. 21, the day Baldwin was holding a firearm that discharged, fatally hitting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Gutierrez-Reed's lawsuit accuses Kenney's prop company, PDQ Arm & Prop, of providing a mix of dummy and live rounds to the set, creating a "dangerous condition."

    What I got from that is the weapon was not fully in control of the armorer. How does ammo just miraculously show up and why would they need live ammo anyway? Maybe her texts will confirm some of what she said. Could be she's young and they felt they could just bypass her for convenience. Serious implications for the production company. And Alec Baldwin which is why that turd won't release his phone.

    Having loaded thousands upon thousands of cartridges for handguns I call pure unadulterated bullshit on some of that. A dummy round should be blatantly obviously different from a loaded round of any kind. Same for a blank. If I were the armorer and found out that the weapons and ammo that I am supposed to be in control of weren't I'd do more than send angry texts, I'd quit.

    This 100%. Live ammo should be nowhere near a movie production, end of story. I wonder if someone brought in live ammo, innocently intending to try target shooting out in the desert with the prop guns. I can believe that Baldwin would be dumb enough to do that, and that he would enjoy shooting in spite of his anti-gun opinions.

    Several years ago someone got hold of a list of al the registered handgun owners in Westchester County NY and made them public. Guess what ? Virtually ALL of the most vehement anti-gun politicians were registered handgun owners.

    Lords of the Manor never felt comfortable with the serfs having weapons.

    I've read many times that Chuck Schumer has a big collection of transferrable machine guns.

    Well, I don't know what to say about Chuck or even owning a machine gun but that might be ILA propaganda. Dunno. As an investment maybe. When the SAFE Act hit I had just ordered a semi-auto Ohio Ordnance Works 1918A3-SLR
    upload_2022-1-15_8-32-53.png

    Fortunately they let me cancel the order. Subsequently I wondered why I wanted it in the first place. It's cool but so are a lot of other things. Now I just want to get rid of most of my rifles.

    I have yet to meet anyone who I have instructed on how to shoot a .22 or even a BB gun that hasn't has fun with it, including a few pinko liberals. Plinking IS fun and I think a lot of the stigma around guns comes from lack of familiarity, weird crap from pop culture etc. It's nothing like tv or movies would have you expect, as you well know @Rick Hunter. Typical with anything - once you wash away the ignorance the irrational fear goes with it. But not the respect for any interest that can kill you whether its guns or hot rods or hang gliding or even animals. Whatever.

    We don't know right now exactly what any of those idiots were doing on that movie set except to say it resulted in a completely avoidable death for which they all share some responsibility. All of them, I doubt there are any who don't truly have some blood on their hands.

    Sorry for the thread hijack, but what makes the semi-auto BAR run afoul of the "safe" act? I don't see a massacre inducing pistol grip or folding stock.

    Who the hell knows. Passing any law was better than doing nothing, at least in the mind of NY politicians.

    That's also why we're all running around with masks on.

    He's an A-typical Grandous Narcicist Not the Amoral value, But the very real Mental Illness. Alec Baldwin strikes me as a star who has gotten so bored with just being rich and famous, That he would do anything for some excitement.., Even stage an elaborate murder disguised as an on-set accident, "Not just for the attention mind you," But for the Thrill of "getting one over on everyone", Because he feels superior to others", He's a very rare breed of Selfabsorbed rarely ever seen.

    MY side thoughts on this are, He wanted to kill her, Because.

    Well, Look at her, She was really pretty right? Alex is an Ego chaser. My assumption is, He was having an affair with the woman, and she called it off, OR Worse. She was about to Hashtag him,
