  1. He shot and killed one of the small people. Not a big deal to a big shot.

  2. Always be closing your chamber empty on the set

  3. You pull the trigger, you’re responsible for whatever happens

  4. CGI bullets and sound effects are dirt cheap. Human life isn’t. Baldwin is out of touch with reality.

  5. Baldwin takes liberal anti-gun stunt way too far. He should be charged with manslaughter as anybody else would be. UNLESS HOLLYWOOD LAWS ARE DIFFERENT FOR MILLIONAIRES. so sad for family of deceased. Baldwin will be yakking it up soon and “act” like he isn’t accountable

  6. this dudes career is over. i would be traumatized for life. esp as an actor where the world is supposed to be fake.
