‘Rust’ Armorer Wants to See Baldwin Put in Jail

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer on the “Rust” film where cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot and killed by an alleged shot from Alec Baldwin’s gun on the set, has a message for the controversial actor.

Gutierrez-Reed, who was convicted on manslaughter charges, is hoping that Baldwin soon joins her as a charge of the state penitentiary.

In a recent interview, she flat out stated that she would like to see Baldwin “in jail.”

Sour Apples

Gutierrez-Reed is not happy at the perception the death of Hutchins had been pinned on her shoulders.

Documents of phone calls with Gutierrez-Reed paint a picture of a very angry young woman that is out for revenge against Baldwin as well as having an ax to grind with prosecutors.

Jason Bowles, attorney for Gutierrez-Reed, was not happy that People magazine “cherry-picked” certain comments made by his client in a recent piece on the former Hollywood armorer.

He stated, “It’s really unfair to characterize or cherry-pick comments someone may or may not have made while they were upset and very recently incarcerated. But, many aspects of this prosecution have displayed no concern for fairness in favor of a win at all costs attitude.”

Hutchins was allegedly shot by Baldwin during a rehearsal of a scene.

Baldwin has always claimed that the revolver went off on its own and that he never pulled the trigger.

For anyone who has ever handled a gun, specifically a revolver, you already know that is virtually impossible to happen unless the gun is dropped and lands perfectly.

Baldwin said he only cocked back the hammer, but he never pulled the trigger.

When the FBI analyzed the gun, it reported, “the trigger had to be pulled or depressed sufficiently to release the fully cocked or retracted hammer of the evidence revolver.”

Baldwin did not follow basic gun safety rules in handling the weapon, and he never checked the rounds in the gun, believing it was the armorer’s responsibility, not his.
