One of the marks of maturity in a person is their ability to take responsibility when they make a mistake or (maybe especially) when they do something wrong. On the flip side, one of the marks of a child is that they believe everyone else is responsible for their situation and their mistakes.
What they want doesn’t change the facts of the situation, though. Not in the least.
Realizing this, a recent interview that Alec Baldwin had with former Bill Clinton staffer turned “journalist” George Stephanopoulos shows that Baldwin still has the maturity a toddler. Maureen Callahan writes,
Just when you think Alec Baldwin can’t go any lower, he blames Halyna Hutchins, the woman he shot to death, for getting shot to death.
“Everything is at her direction,” Baldwin told a sycophantic George Stephanopoulos during a jaw-dropping, hourlong interview that aired Thursday night.
“I’m holding the gun where she told me to hold it,” Baldwin said, “which ended up right below her armpit. Which is what I was told — I don’t know.”
There was so much Baldwin claimed not to know.
And Stephanopoulos, his longtime friend from the Hamptons — not that the average viewer would know that — was only too eager to pitch softball after softball.
Yes, one of ABC’s leading journalists — I use that term loosely — hardly challenged Baldwin when he claimed, repeatedly, that he never pulled the trigger, that the gun just went rogue.
Not everyone agrees with Baldwin about the ability of guns, such as the one that he was holding when Hutchins was killed, to act of their own accord. Callahan tells us about a person who, unlike Baldwin, actually knows something about firearms and their take on this shooting:
“I’m not aware of any gun firing itself,” says Steve Wolf, a Hollywood firearms and special-effects expert since 1994. “I’ve never seen a gun self-discharge. A single-action revolver like this” — the Colt that Baldwin fired — “can be discharged very easily, with minimal input required … The trigger still must have been pressed.”
The fact of the matter is that, if Baldwin actually knew anything about guns and gun safety (you know, been a responsible adult while holding and handling a firearm even on a movie set), then he would have known and followed the four laws of gun safety. But he didn’t, and a woman is dead because Baldwin didn’t take responsibility, then, either (you can read more about that here).
So, here we have a situation where a grown man’s immaturity both motivates their foolish political perspectives (Baldwin is vocal about his support for strict gun control) and, also, directly contributed to the untimely death of another person.
Guns aren’t the problem when it comes to gun violence and deaths. People like Alec Baldwin and their immaturity are the problem.
No the guns fault its the person that got shots fault we have reached a new low from our holly-weirdo actors.
Alec Baldwin is a Fu%*ing lying sack of shit. He kills someone with god knows how many witnesses and has the nerve to say he didn’t. What a ASSHOLE period. Typical antigun rich guy.
As I have said on other forums regarding the shooting – killer alec can whimper, whine and try to shirk his responsibility all he wants to but there are at least three incontrovertible facts – 1) he was holding the gun when it ‘went off’ – 2) he had the gun pointed at human beings and 3) Halyna is still dead.
How the heck did a live round get in the chamber? And if the live round was intentional who was the idiot that handed it to the idiot? would you hand a loaded firearm to a 5 year old?
Baldwin deserves life in prison for murderer! He can cry like a baby all he want too! He was the one who pull the trigger! End of story! He like all these dumb leftist in Hollywood who couldn’t make it without the TV show, movie, none could afford their 10 million dollars mansion without people watching their low life movie!
I wonder if he was having an affair with Halyna and she was blackmailing him and he found a solution – just shoot her!
Isn’t there an ex-police officer in Minnesota that made a huge mistake with a firearm, that they are trying to hang. Not exactly the same, but there are some similarities. If she goes down, so should he.
baldwin should be executed! But no, I was wondering how he was going to get out of this! And the ignorant liberals are going to let him off! Again, I say hang this POS!
