Actor Alec Baldwin "requested a bigger gun" before the incident that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured on the set of the movie Rust in October, police said.
An investigation of the deadly shooting recently revealed that Baldwin had discussed his choice of weapon with Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed via email, according to an affidavit from Detective Alexandria Hancock, which was included in a search warrant issued to acquire Baldwin's cell phone on Thursday.
"Alec said since they were in rehearsal, he assumed he had an empty gun, therefore when he shot the gun, Haylena [sic] was right in front of him," Hancock wrote. "Alec described the gun to be a 'period' Colt. He said there were emails transferred back and forth between Hannah and him where she showed him different styles of guns."
"He said he requested a bigger gun, and she also showed him different styles of knives for the production," added Hancock. "

“Too bad I accidently bleached all my emails”.
That being said, he still is responsible.
Baldwin DID select the individual gun. It’s part of the search warrant request by the police.
“Alec was shown a Colt with a brown handle, and a cherry handle, and he ultimately chose the one with the brown handle.”
his assumption violated the basic gun rules that resulted in killing someone. That’s manslaughter.
Well then nevermind. I was commenting only on the post that omitted that fact, and just said “I want a bigger gun”.
He would have asked for a loudener if possible.
“He said he requested a bigger gun, and she also showed him different styles of knives for the production,”
Alec also claimed the knife through itself.
But he never pulled the trigger!! /s
i think maybe that the issue revolves (sorry) around the unattended tray. why was the tray unattended? it breaks the chain of custody. my uneducated understanding is that breaking the chain of custody is a no-no because it violates protocol and also effectively blurs responsibility. a gun safe should have been used instead of a tray. who broke the protocol? was the gunsmith at the tray but was required to be elsewhere by her supervisor? thus this is apparently how a homicide count is transmogrified into an administrative rule infraction. are we not entertained?
This is my pistol
This is my gun
One is for killing
The others for fun
Baldwin wanted Hutchins dead, for what reason I guess we will find out in time
“How do you mean? With a cloth?”
Who pulled the trigger.....?
He has a hold dozen. Hildren. I’d say the gun he has is more than adequate…
