In the days after the tragic October, 2021 accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by Alec Baldwin while he was rehearsing a scene with a prop gun on the set of his movie, Rust, Colorado House Rep. Lauren Boebert relentlessly spewed vile, unconscionable jokes about the incident at Baldwin’s expense.
Boebert grinned as she wore a creepy T-shirt joking about the tragedy while out shopping.
She wore her T-shirt making fun of Hutchins’ death at public speaking engagements:

She even displayed her disgusting T-shirt at her restaurant in Rifle, Shooters Grill, which is now closed:
And more recently, in an April 21, 2023 tweet, after the two counts of involuntary manslaughter that had been brought against Baldwin over the death were dropped, Boebert said the charges were dropped due to “liberal privilege.”
But investigators who inspected the gun used in the accidental shooting found it was mechanically defective to the point that it could have fired without any pressure being put on the trigger.
“The gun fired in testing only one time — without having to pull the trigger — when the hammer was pulled back and the gun broke in two different places,” Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said. “The FBI was unable to fire the gun in any prior test, even when pulling the trigger, because it was in such poor condition.”
Baldwin insisted that he had never pulled the trigger on the gun, and would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger, ever.
We’re waiting for Lauren Boebert to issue a public apology to Alec Baldwin, and his family, and Halyna Hutchins’ family, for Boebert’s incredibly disgusting behavior around Hutchins’ tragic accidental death.
It was a tragic accident.
Boebert is just a mean spirited moron. Sadly a reflection of others amongst us.
Still doesn’t explain why there was live ammo in the gun in the first place and not blanks; for what idiot knowingly stands in front of a loaded weapon? And what idiot defends the jerkoff that killed an innocent woman/mother/daughter?
I thank you God for giving me a brain to use for discernment, and the ability to think for myself, so that I don’t have to rely on the lame stream media to do the thinking for me. I get it, it’s easier to believe whatever lies is being reported at the moment than it is to discover the truth, especially with our elders, who just can’t believe that they have been hoodwinked into believing such massive amounts of propaganda that is set up to hurt them in the long run. Just because you don’t believe in the truth doesn’t mean it isn’t and just because you couldn’t or wouldn’t be capable of such evil activities, doesn’t mean that it’s not happening.
This blog reminds me of most of the people in this onry town, in that it’s full of hatred and negativity. Instead of the natives encouraging positive change or solutions to the problems we face, it’s kick my fellow neighbor down and turn my back because it’s not my problem? The people here definitely don’t represent this beautiful landscape that surrounds us, no instead, it’s dirty, messy and sloppy!
I’m not here to change anyone’s mind, but why can’t we all just get along and stop with all this contempt and hate? What’s the golden rule? Treat others as you want to be treated. Stop spreading hate, it’s like a disease, contagious.
Events around the Rust movie shooting are more complex than you are aware of: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/lists/alec-baldwin-rust-shooting-incident-timeline/
Baldwin was told the weapon was “cold”, meaning there was not a live round in it. The trigger pull was accidental, and he had no intent to point a gun loaded with a live round at another person.
So, the charges were dropped.
A little knowledge mght temper that righteous indignation.
There is a problem here and it sure as hell is not this particular post.
Anything to publicly pose for a “mugshot”.
The FBI says the gun couldn’t be fired without the trigger being pulled.
Also, just because they dropped these charges doesn’t mean they won’t “re-charge” Baldwin.
No one apologizes any more.
Spoken like a true Boebblehead.
Actually the sentiment was popularized by the woman who said this…
“What difference, at this point, does it make?”
I was speaking more in terms of the “logic”, but, sure. Quote whomever you like.
Doesn’t make it any less Beobertish.
