So, after watching the interview, Baldwin took no responsibility and admitted to nothing for anything that happened regarding his part and it was all left off as to whomever put the live round in the gun and to the actual woman that was shot and died who directed him to point the gun in the direction of her torso and also instructed him to cock back the hammer all in order to get the close-up film shot.

So he did pull the trigger? Why did he say he didn't pull the trigger? 😕

He admitted to cocking the hammer and pointing it directly at the woman who isn't around any more, due to whatever ever happened next.

I have an old black powder revolver (1851 Colt) that needs a new hammer. Because the cocking spur was so worn out the hammer could drop if the wind blew the wrong way. I didn't trust it anymore so I ground the spur off completely and put it away. Maybe someday I'll feel like getting a new one.

Not saying that is what caused Baldwin's gun to fire (involuntarily) but it's one possibility I'm sure they have to eliminate.

Edit: I wrote "He admitted..." Actually I have no idea what he said. Didn't watch the interview, don't plan to either. Just hope he gets what he deserves.

He is saying that he did not ever pull the trigger, but while cocking back the hammer the hammer then fell onto the bullet and the gun then fired.

He is also claiming that it is okay to point a gun at someone as long as they give consent, say it's okay, and tell you to point it at them even if they end up dead as a result.

M thoughts are that he physically and mechanically manipulated the gun so that it could fire, it did fire, and someone died.
Whether it was his finger on a trigger or his thumb on a hammer the negligent homicide is still the same.
Whomever loaded it with a live round should ALSO catch a negligent homicide charge, but not in lieu of Baldwin.

But I did glance over an article that state laws in New Mexico may be written in a way where Baldwin does not catch a criminal charge.
But lawsuits will fly and be settled that is for sure.

If that's true then still the cocking spur could be at fault, or the hammer slipped off of his little, fat and/or weak thumb just before it got back far enough. Still shouldn't point guns at people. Especially old ones you know nothing about, and old guns.

I believe this may be what happened if what he is describing is close to the truth. Or the gun had a defect causing malfunction or was perhaps modified.

Did this specific style of gun also allow someone to quarter cock and also half cock the weapon?

Probably half-cock. Cannot really say because supposedly it was an obscure model with unusual ammo to boot.

Let me add that there are numerous types of blanks. Completely inert pieces of plastic; a real bullet that has the powder removed with or without a functional primer; also a shell with no bullet but powder and a primer.

I think I heard somewhere that what killed Bruce Lee was a bullet that lodged in a barrel because it was launched by just a primer, then followed by a blank, which was just powder but no shell.

Having realistic blanks on set for close-up scenes, plus who knows what else, is why you need experts on the set.

Edit: my phone's auto correct has been really sneaky lately.

I would sort of be reluctantly impressed if Baldwin had gone hardcore method actor and remained stubbornly in character for this entire thing, doing the interview with the accent and mannerisms of an Old West outlaw or something.

He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a brick of chaw and with the other hand whips out his Bowie knife and carves off a huge, damp, dank chunk.
Biting the chaw chunk off the edge of the knife blade he then sloppily crams it into his mouth and then a minute later spits on the floor while abruptly interrupting Stephanopoploppo...

"This dead chick is so yesturday, Stephanopohippopotamus. Let's stop livin' in the past. Let's start gettin' on with our futurrr.
"All us little cowboys and cowgirls gotta' go sumtime...know what I mean, hombres."
"I mean, all this teary-eyed shit is gettin' a bit all too homo for me. And ol' Alec don't do homo." "No sir-ee Bob...or Rob...or whatever other homo name is tryin' to git with me."
"Ain't nobody goin' give me the Brokeback from going bareback up the old dirt trail."
"And to be honest Stephanopoplitious, you know what her problum was?" "She thought she was fastern' me on the draw."
"I could see it in her eyes that she was hankerin' for a draw, so I gaves it to her."
"Lesson learned hombres. Never step up on ol' Alec givin' me the side-eye, or I will be puttin' you down like an ol' cur dog quicker than you can beat an eyelash...fronthole or no fronthole"
"You betchum."
"Any more questiuns?" "No, well, arright then."
"Let's get that dead bitch in a box and six feet under, say a few kind words and be done with it...as it is getting late, is chow time and I am gettin' hungry for a plate of beans and a shot of rot-gut."

(Then spits another loogie of tobaccee juice on Stephanopolosnuffleupagus's forehead and saunters out of the studio with his spurs jangling.)

On the way out, Alec mean-mugs at the studeo camera man and says, "Watch how you look at me boy, 'cuz we already know now how easy ya'll are to hit."
