Alec Baldwin is used to speaking out against gun rights activists.
Baldwin, 63, accidentally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on Thursday in what he described as a “tragic accident” on the set of his film “Rust”. The set also sent director Joel Souza to a hospital for emergency care. Souza has since been released.
Production of the film has been suspended indefinitely.
In 2018, Baldwin joined a celebrity coalition, No Rifle Association (NoRA), whose goal was to shed light on the National Rifle Association’s alleged hold over the United States government.

“We’re going to shine a light on what you and your organization are doing to America,” the NoRA Initiative wrote in a 2018 letter to NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre (via deadline). “We’re going to make sure the whole world sees your bloody hands. We’re coming for your money. We’re coming for your puppets. And we’re going to win.”
The “It’s Complicated” star also took on former NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch on social media.
“I see @DLoesch wants to ‘take back the truth’,” Baldwin tweeted in 2018.

“And she doesn’t care how many corpses she has to step over in this lawsuit. The Second Amendment is not a moral credit card that buys you all the guns you want. This law needs to be rethought.”
Baldwin broke his silence on Cackling’s death on social media Friday morning.

“There are no words to express my shock and sadness over the tragic accident that claimed the life of Halyna Hutchins, a deeply admired wife, mother and colleague,” Baldwin wrote.
“I am fully cooperating with the police investigation to explain how this tragedy happened, and I am in contact with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son and everyone who knew him and loved Halyna, ”he concluded.
