Alec Baldwin was set up

Alec Baldwin was set up due to his anti Gun, anti NRA or anti Trump views I reckon.

P.S. don't shoot Admin.

Pretty sure it was because the armourer was incompetent and inexperienced

Yep, possibly. But the chain of events seems:

Crew get gun out of Safe.
Crew use Gun for live practice.
Crew put Gun back in Safe.
Crew leave live rounds in Gun or in cache..
Armourrer retrieves Gun, checks or loads with blanks lol.
Assistant Director checks Gun and declaree it "cold".
Baldwin points Gun at Camera and Cinematographer and fires.

All those above steps seem a breach.

The fact is there's a lot of toothless, cousin kissing, inbred, gun tooting hillbilly NRA Republicans ( no offence @Big Mick ) who'd love to bring Baldwin down. Anyone could've tampered with the cache by the sounds of it.

And here we go:

"... Lawyers for the armourer on the set of Rust have revealed investigations are underway to determine whether someone intentionally “sabotaged the set” that led to the fatal shooting of a cinematographer by star Alec Baldwin.
... Hannah Gutierrez-Reid’s lawyers Jason Bowles and Robert Gorence appeared on the US Today show to reveal the “most pivotal” and “most central” question in this case — whether someone deliberately put a real bullet in a box of dummy ones... and made startling claims that the gun had been left unattended
... "

The Gun was left UNATTENDED for over 2 hours before the Assistant Director handed it to Baldwin. They also found a LIVE round in the Box of Dummies.

Incompetent Armourer, incompetent Assistant Director, incompetent Management and some Saboteur is the most plausible explanation

and we're just going to take everything the "lawyers for the armourer" say as gospel? How terribly convenient their client isn't at fault...

There seems to be some facts which are undisputed. The fact the Guns were left unattended prior to the Assistant Director passing one on seems undisputed.
The Police also stated live rounds were found.

Because crew members were allowed (by the armourer) to use the firearms with live ammunition recreationally.

he's probably the NRA plant

Possibly, but let's not point too many fingers lol

Let's see what the Police come up with. A lot of people were complacent or incompetent.
Alec Baldwin is a prime target for the NRA and Republicans.

How many of these incidents, people get shot on set, actually happen? This is one of a very few I've heard of.

There had been multiple occurrences of guns misfiring on this set
