Hannah Gutierrez, in Charge of the Guns on “Rust,” Says Extremely Difficult to Focus On Her Job Because She Had Two


Here’s the statement from the lawyers for Hannah Gutierrez Reed, the “armorer” who was supposed to be in charge of the guns on the set of Alec Baldwin’s “Rust.”

This statement is really peculiar. Hannah says she had two jobs on the set and so was too busy to be focused on either one. What? There’s also a big typo in the statement, unlike RHnot is a word in New Mexico. I just don’t get it.

Gutierrez-Reed and Assistant Director Dave Halls have a lot to answer for. A woman is dead, her son is without a mother, a family has lost their beloved daughter, wife. For nothing. For stupidity.
