Alec Baldwin sat down with ABC News for an exclusive interview that will be airing tonight at 8 PM EST. One of the clips that have been released from the video shows. Alec stated that he didn’t pull the trigger and that he would never point a gun at someone and pull the trigger.
So he pointed the gun at someone but didn’t pull the trigger…and the gun just went off…with a live round in it? Sorry, but something doesn’t sound right here. I’m not an expert on all firearms but I have never seen a gun just “go off by itself.”
One that comes to mind is a discharge caught on video where a man racks his slide and when it goes forward the gun fires. Since the gun Alec Baldwin was handling was a revolver, that’s not what happened here.
What are your thoughts? Do you think this gun just went off by itself? Sound off in the comments below. I have a feeling I know what most of the comments will say. It will be interesting to see how this investigation turns out.
And lately, I’d like to take this time to remind everyone to follow the 4 Rules of Firearm Safety.
