“We assume someone must have put real bullets in this box”
The weapon used had real bullets instead of fake ones, possibly the gunsmith's fault. His lawyers seem to be taking a stand on all this, where they also claim the possibility of “sabotage”.

The lawyers of the gunsmith, who is also the main suspect in the accident during the shooting of the movie “Rust”, also claim the most likely “sabotage”. A few days ago, the unfortunate Halyna Hutchins, lost her life after the shooting of the actress Alec Baldwin, during filming. Essentially, the weapon used had real bullets instead of fake ones, possibly the gunsmith's fault. His lawyers seem to be taking a stand on all this, even after their interview with the BBC, where they even claim the possibility of “sabotage”.
More specifically, they said: “We assume that someone must have put real bullets in this box. “If you think about it, the person who put these real bullets in the box with the virtual cartridges would like to sabotage the shooting.” The lawyer even insisted that this was the only logical explanation for the incident. In fact, at this stage of the investigation, no arrests have been made, but the prosecutor's office has not ruled out the possibility of criminal prosecution, if responsibilities arise. With the sheriff supervising the investigations claiming that “there was definitely negligence in these shootings”.
