Guns are machines. They don’t just go off out of spite or maliciousness. They go off because YOU pulled the trigger!
The machine works fine, check your brain.
So unless there was a mechanical defect in the gun (and we would have heard about it if there had been), the ONLY and PROXIMATE cause of the gun going off was Baldwin himself. And he is legally and morally liable. Case closed.
This was manslaughter. Baldwin, by all we know, is guilty of manslaughter. He didn’t deliberately kill Hutchins, but he did so just the same. Not through active malice, but through failing to take reasonable care, through negligence.
