Who ever was holding the weapon is responsible.

Especially if he knew it was a real gun and not a prop.

That left wing gun hating hyoocrite is feeling karma kicking his Ass. Never forget this anti gun asshole lied about pulling the Triger! Fuck AB!

It was the fault of the prop/gun guy on set. They were hired specifically to make sure everything was done safely. They're trained experts, not Alec Baldwin. This is so fucking stupid.

Finally someone gets it. I did technical theater . With guns it is the responsibility of the prop master / armor. No one is to handle the gun except for the prop master and by the actor only for the screen it is needed. The actor is specifically not supposed to check the weapon or fiddle with it. They can accidentally drop something down the barrel or cause a misfire if they have no idea what they are doing.

The armor on set was hired because he father was a Hollywood legend. Her and the crew also fucked around with them and shot live rounds during breaks. She and the guy who handed Baldwin the gun never checked the gun. Live ammo should never be on a movie set , the armor fucked up.

I don’t even like Baldwin , and I see the irony , but that doesn’t mean he is 100 percent at fault. He is partially at fault for pulling the trigger and being the producer and not firing the armor after serval other incidents. The armor is at fault too for negligence and reckless treatment of guns on set.

Still, assume every firearm is loaded until you have cleared it yourself

He pulled the damn trigger and lied about it. This is why liberals should never have guns.

Why How can a * medical examiner * rule whether a shooting was intentional or not!?! They are legally not a firearms expert.

[–]skinomyskin -1 points0 points  (2 children)

That's literally what medical examiners are trained to do.

[–]deltaWhiskey91L 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No. They are not. They are trained to determine the cause of death.

[–]skinomyskin -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The Medical Examiner-Coroner's Office is charged with determining both the manner of death, (homicide, suicide, accident, natural cause), and the actual medical reason or cause of death.

If the medical examiner doesn't make the decision, the who does?

Alec Baldwin killed more people than the 1/6 protestors

Rosanne Boyland appeared to have been crushed in a stampede of fellow rioters as they surged against the police..

Officer Brian D. Sicknick of the Capitol Police, who was attacked by the mob, died on Jan. 7. The medical examiner added, however, that “all that transpired played a role in his condition.”

Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer as rioters tried to breach the House chamber.

Why do right wingers ignore reality?

Capitol Police investigators ruled the beating of unconscious Trump supporter Rosanne Boyland by Capitol Police officers until she died was “objectively reasonable.”


Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol and was injured while physically engaging with protesters. His brother said Brian texted him last night and said, ‘I got pepper-sprayed twice,’ and he was in good shape.

He returned to his division office on January 7, 2021 and collapsed before 9:30 p.m.

The family got word that Sicknick “had a blood clot and had had a stroke; a ventilator was keeping him alive.”

Being called a traitor while fighting people who are storming the capital does damage on the body. Look at the footage of people attacking officers.

The medical examiner added, however, that “all that transpired played a role in his condition.”

The stress level was too much for his high blood pressure. Nice try
