Spike brings up an interesting point. Baldwin was not only the lead
actor in "Rust" but also one of its five producers. If there were
labor-disputes, then Baldwin would be considered management rather
than labor. Depending on how involved Halyna Hutchins (the
cinematographer) would be in a camera crew strike, this could be
motive on the part of Baldwin.
Also, with regards any civil lawsuit by either the Hutchins family or
the director who was also injured, Baldwin's and the other production
company would be on the hook for any lawsuits.
Here is the Hollywood Reporter's take on things.
And they verify my earlier claim that, since the silent-film era, live
ammunition has been prohibited on any movie set precisely for these
sorts of safety reasons.
