    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Actor Alec Baldwin claims he did not pull the trigger on the gun that was used to kill cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico set of the movie “Rust.” Alec Baldwin speaks for the first time on Oct. 30, 2021, in Manchester, Vt., regarding the shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, and wounded director Joel Souza on the set of the film “Rust.” (Getty Images) “Well the trigger wasn’t pulled, I didn’t pull the trigger,” Baldwin told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos from a clip of an interview that will run in full Thursday. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger, never,” Baldwin said. Baldwin also alleges he has “no idea” how the live bullet got on the set. “Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn’t supposed to be on the property,” Baldwin said. On the afternoon of Oct. 21, on the set of the Western “Rust” just outside Santa Fe, a single live round from a Pietta Colt .45 revolver fired by Baldwin struck and...
    Before Alec Baldwin’s Thursday night interview with George Stephanopoulos (D-ABC), I expressed my skepticism at the actor’s claim he did not pull the trigger on the gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. Now that I’ve seen the full interview, I have even more questions. Baldwin’s full interview with Stephanopoulos is the first time he’s spoken publicly about what happened, including why he pointed the gun at Hutchins. Here’s how he explained everything… “[Hutchins is] guiding me through how she wants me to hold the gun for this angle,” Baldwin said. “I’m holding the gun where she told me to hold it, which ended up being aimed right below her armpit.” “So, I take the gun, and I start to cock the gun. I’m not going to pull the trigger,” he added. “And I cock the gun; I go, ‘Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?’ And then I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off.’ “I let go of the hammer of the gun...
    Actor Alec Baldwin told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he cocked the gun that fatally shot the cinematographer for his unfinished film Rust — but insisted that he did not pull the trigger. Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza was wounded in the October 21, 2021, shooting incident. The first part of Stephanopoulos’ interview with Baldwin aired Thursday, and a new preview clip aired Friday morning on Good Morning America. USA Today quoted Baldwin recounting the fatal moment. Baldwin said, “I’m holding the gun where she [Hutchins] told me to hold it.” He added, “In the scene [being rehearsed] I would have cocked the gun, and I said, ‘Do you want to see that? And she said yes. So I take the gun and I sort of cock the gun, I’m not going to pull the trigger.” Baldwin said that Hutchins then had him adjust the angle at which he was holding the revolver. He then told Stephanopoulos, “I cock the gun and I go, ‘Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?’ And I let go of the hammer...

    (CNN)In an interview with ABC that aired Thursday, Alec Baldwin shed light on what happened in the moments prior to the fatal shooting on the set of the film "Rust" that claimed the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. The actor explained to ABC's George Stephanopoulos that the scene being rehearsed in the church at Bonanza Creek Ranch in New Mexico was going to show him cocking the gun, and he and Hutchins were going over how she wanted to position his hand. "And I cock the gun, I go, "Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?" and she says... and then I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off.

    During an interview with ABC aired on Thursday, Alec Baldwin stated that he was told that the gun in the “Rust” shooting was a “cold gun” and that he didn’t pull the trigger, but the gun went off after he let go of the hammer. Baldwin said that he was told that the gun was a “cold gun” which “means there’s no charge in there. There could be dummy rounds.” Baldwin also stated that he held the gun where he was told to, which ended up being “right below her armpit.” Baldwin discussed how the firearm discharged. He said that he was instructed to cock the gun and that he pulled the hammer back, and then when he let go of the hammer, the gun went off. He added, “I didn’t pull the trigger. … I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never. Never. That was the training that I had, you don’t point a gun at somebody and pull the trigger.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    John Schneider is sharing his thoughts on Alec Baldwin's "Rust" movie set shooting. On Oct. 21, Baldwin was rehearsing a scene on the New Mexico set of his planned film "Rust" when a gun he was holding discharged. A projectile from the weapon fatally struck cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. An investigation into the incident has been underway for a month now, and Baldwin spoke out Thursday night, claiming during a tell-all interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that despite holding the gun, he "didn't pull the trigger." Ahead of Baldwin's interview, a preview was released, which featured Baldwin's comments, and Schneider, 61, shared his thoughts on the matter in an 18-minute video titled "Seriously Alec?" ALEC BALDWIN'S CLAIM HE DIDN'T PULL TRIGGER ON 'RUST' QUESTIONED BY SHERIFF: 'GUNS DON'T JUST GO OFF' Schneider claimed the interview was "all designed to make us feel sorry for Alec Baldwin" and claimed the actor's teary-eyed emotional responses during the interview were "bulls--t." Actor John Schneider, right, railed against Alec Baldwin for claiming he did not pull the trigger of the gun on...
    Sen. Joe Manchin is reportedly considering leaving the Democratic Party.  The West Virginia Democrat has told associates he has a plan to leave his party if his liberal colleagues cannot find a way to cut down the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation plan to $1.75 trillion, according to Mother Jones.  If Manchin follows through with the plan, he would switch from Democrat to Independent.  The senator reportedly has a two-part plan for his exit. First, he would send a letter to Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, asking to be removed from leadership, as he currently serves as the vice chairman of the Senate Democrats’ policy and communications committee. Manchin says he would then wait to see if that showed Democrats how serious he was about leaving if negotiations don't go his way. Then, after about a week, he would change his voter registration from Republican to Democrat.   Manchin, along with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, is a key moderate Democrat in the Senate, and their votes remain the last bulwark against their party's massive social spending bill.  It is not clear how Manchin's...
    HE has already served 35 years behind bars for the horrific slaughter of five members of his own family, but Jeremy Bamber has always protested his innocence. Now Bamber’s childhood friend has sensationally claimed the convicted killer may have hired a hitman to do his dirty work and shoot his parents, Nevill and June, both 61, sister Sheila Caffell, 24 and her six-year-old twins Daniel and Nicholas. 10Jeremy Bamber, pictured with his girlfriend Julie Mugford, at his family's funeral - after he slaughtered them in their sleepCredit: Rex Features 10Sheila Caffell was originally suspected of murder-suicideCredit: Rex Bamber was jailed for life for the sickening slaughter at White House Farm in the village of Tolshunt D’arcy, Essex in August 1985.  But pal Brett Collins, who initially believed Bamber to be innocent and later changed his mind, still believes he was incapable of pulling the trigger himself.

    IHOP in Boonton is permanently closed for business, reports say. The Boonton Plaza location on Wootton Street closed its doors at 4 p.m. Sunday, Daily Record reports citing District Manager Abe Jubran. "The lease was done and we already have enough headaches with other stores and staffing," Jubran reportedly told the outlet. "All that and everything going on with the government. It was time to pull the trigger." Meanwhile, IHOP enthusiasts can still get their pancake fix at the franchise’s other Morris County locations in Cedar Knolls and Parsippany. The Totowa restaurant in Passaic County also remains open for visitors.
    President Joe Biden delivered remarks Wednesday on the administration’s strategy to prevent gun crimes across the country when he said there is “a range of programs” he believes are needed to keep Americans from pulling the trigger. A reporter asked Biden what he feels would be the “most effective thing that government can do to change the mindset of those who feel compelled to pull the triggers” of guns. Biden said in response to the question that one could hope to change the mindset of people by “being engaged in a whole range of programs.” He continued to say that involves “everything from mental health programs” to start engaging with people earlier on and “letting them know there’s other options.” We need to be “making sure that when a child is young, they have access to real education, they get started off on the right foot,” Biden continued. In addition, he said when someone gets out of prison, someone should be “making sure” they are not going to be “denied public housing” and therefore, “don’t have to go back under...
    MTV/Instagram The Challenge All Stars The second half of the two-part final of “The Challenge: All Stars” is set to drop this Thursday on Paramount Plus and at this point, it’s still anybody’s game. Warning: This article contains spoilers for the eighth episode of “The Challenge: All Stars,” which dropped on Paramount Plus on May 20. The final began on the heels of an intense seventh episode that saw a close nomination for the guys to determine who would be going into the last elimination of the show. During that episode, the votes were extremely close between Nehemiah Clark and Yes Duffy, but Nehemiah ended up getting one vote more and going into the Arena. The episode showed Yes making a passionate speech about going into each day building real friendships with people in the house and it appeared to sway Aneesa Ferreira into voting for Nehemiah instead of Yes, causing a rift in her friendship with Jisela Delgado. Yes recently addressed that moment on social media and shared a note he wrote to himself after that deliberation....

    (CNN)When I was first elected to the US House of Representatives in 2004, I did not spend much time thinking or worrying about the US Senate filibuster, a rule invoked by the minority party to delay the passage of a bill or confirmation of a federal appointment.Yet, during the 2005-2006 session of Congress, when Republicans controlled the White House and both chambers of Congress, I regularly heard fellow House GOP members lambast obstructionist Senate Democrats, as they demanded abolition or extreme changes to the Senate filibuster rules. Back then, Democrats -- like then-Sen. Joe Biden -- opposed eliminating the filibuster, saying it would be "a fundamental power grab by the majority party." Charlie DentFast forward in time, and now it is Democrats who are decrying the filibuster. Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna of California, in a letter to President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, recently wrote, "There is an institutional deference that maybe would have been fine in times past, but a defense of the status quo is inadequate to the challenges of our time. We have to follow the...

    The UFC has booked a huge pay-per-view at UFC 261 as Kamaru Usman will defend his welterweight title against Jorge Masvidal in a rematch between the duo. However, before we head into the titanic clash, Masvidal’s former opponent Ben Askren took to Twitter to respond to that news. The UFC 261 pay-per-view will also see two other title fights go down. Valentina Shevchenko will defend her flyweight belt against Jessica Andrade. Zhang Weili will defend her strawweight title against Rose Namajunas. Also, fans will be back in the stands for the first UFC pay-per-view in the United States.

Wow,” wrote Askren on Twitter. Despite being retired from the UFC, ‘Funky’ has...
    Indiana needs a new basketball coach, and Rick Pitino might be the perfect man for the job. The Hoosiers fired former head coach Archie Miller after several disappointing seasons, and it’s now time to find his replacement. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) As crazy as it might sound, Pitino, whose son was just ousted at Minnesota, is by far and away the best proven option on the table. Now, that’s not to say that there aren’t young coaches out there who can’t make a huge impact and have success, but there’s nobody on the market with the resume of Pitino.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Iona Men’s Basketball (@ionagaelsmbb) The man dominated during his time at Kentucky and Louisville before being pushed out by the Cardinals in the carnage of the FBI’s corruption scandal. It’s important to note that Pitino hasn’t been accused of doing anything that stops him working for an NCAA school. In fact, he’s already back in the NCAA and took Iona to...
    Yankees News: Mike Tauchman a trade candidate, but should they pull the trigger? By: Alexander Wilson March 1, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees brought on several outfielders to compete during spring training this year, and it could create a more difficult situation for Mike Tauchman to make the active roster. From signing Jay Bruce to Derek Dietrich, the position bottle for a depth spot in the OF will be ongoing during spring training. Currently, the Yankees have Aaron Judge, Clint Frazier, and Aaron Hicks as their expected starters for the 2021 season. The depth pieces include Giancarlo Stanton, Brett Gardner, and a bevy of alternatives. Tauchman could be considered a trade piece given his value over the last two seasons, as he hit .277 in 2019 with 13 homers and 47 RBIs. An outrageous boost in slugging, Mike had never hit a major league homer until 2019, which could be coughed up to juiced baseballs. The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal believes that Mike Tauchman could be cut due to depth in the...
    Getty Quarterback Zach Wilson #11 of the Brigham Young Cougars warms up prior to their game against the Utah Utes at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Joe Judge may have just shut down the idea of the New York Giants moving on from quarterback Daniel Jones. However, that hasn’t stopped people from dreaming. Currently projected to draft 10th-overall in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft, there will certainly be a handful of intriguing options available for the taking if the G-Men were truly in the quarterback market. However, with the way BYU signal-caller Zach Wilson’s stock has soared in recent months, the chances of him being there for the taking are looking slim-to-none. With that said, were he somehow to fall to the Giants, Giants Today on Twitter thinks the decision is fairly simple, “pull the f—— trigger.’ If Zach Wilson is available when the #Giants are on the clock pull the F**KING trigger. #TogetherBlue https://t.co/L0ScFzIbDd — Giants Today (@NYGToday) December 23, 2020 ALL the latest Giants news straight to your inbox!

    By Sam Hoober, Alien Gear Holsters If you’re going to upgrade anything on any firearm, a trigger job or trigger upgrade of some sort is one of the few that make a serious difference in terms of how well you’ll be able to shoot the thing. The other, of course, is upgrading the sights or sighting system. Presuming all other components are in working order and/or function well enough, how well you see the sights and/or the target and the relative ease of the trigger press get you the most bang for the buck. A tuned trigger system is often one of the differences between the more working-class versions and premium versions of the same pistol. There are more, of course, but the bang switch is usually one of the largest items that get an upgrade. 1911 pistols are a great example; you can find very decent triggers among the entry level guns but nowhere near the same league as the high end handfit examples such as a Dan Wesson or Les Baer.
