A single action Colt cannot fire itself Alec
Whilst the pressure increases on Baldwin about who is to blame for his almost execution style “accidental shooting,” some legal eagles speculate that the only thing that will save Baldwin is his political alignment with the New Mexico Attorney General, who is a Democrat.
Other legal experts are not so sure and think Baldwin should not face any charges if he was told the gun was “cold”
