TheView Lmao, good things happening to good people, Ahhhh aint life grand 🔫🔫🔫 TheView 😢🙏🏼🙏🏼💙 This is why Liberals shouldn't have a say about firearms! It's interesting, he doesn't like people carrying for self defense but uses the same product to make a movie at the expense of someone's life.

In his heart he was innocent, regardless of a fire arm responsibility, and therefore must have forgiveness for himself just as Halyna’s family should, the public, the law, and most importantly he will have it from God. komonews How does the camera women get shot though? Why would Baldwin point a gun at her? Or the director!!!I don’t get it!

😢🙏❤️‍🩹 We are so very sorry for you and of course her and her entire family. May somehow you found some kind of peace within yourself and find the same grace you would have for anyone else if this were to occur to them. May peace be with you.😓 Ooof, that’s gut wrenching 💔 I feel so badly for all involved.

jkbjournalist just horrible I'M NOT BUYING IT. Something very fishy here. 2 people? One, ok, I see that, but 2 people? Investigate Alec on this. He's mentally unstable. I don't care how funny his Trump impersonation is.. What a nightmare, stop using real weapons for acting! did you know that Alec is against weapons and that the character of the movie was in jail because he killed someone by accident?

Hollywood loves guns White privilege at its finest.

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins Dies at 42 After Prop Gun Incident on Alec Baldwin FilmThe Ukrainian-born, Los Angeles-based director of photography's credits include the indie films 'Archenemy,' 'Blindfire' and 'The Mad Hatter.' Many in the industry are saying the gun was not a prop by definition.. and that it was a real gun with planks 👀 This should have been avoided and could have been which is very frustrating. My prayers go out to her friends and family. No more realistic guns with real looking gunfire shots from blanks on set. It doesn't have to look 100% real, just make it look real enough with a dummy airsoft gun with vfx for the gunfire, safety is far more important than absolute realism. Rest In Peace

He should not be allowed to handle a firearm or tell others they are not allowed to handle a firearm. Hes a murderer. Needs put in jail. Damn, tough situation.. This is not his fault, he was given a prop gun to use as an actor. How would he know this would happen? Could have happened to anyone. It is tragic, for sure, but blaming him is ridiculous.

Sad for the victims' family and sad for him too. This is a life time stress. Alec better lawyer up. So he ain’t going to jail. shouldn't he be arrested?
