Actress Megan Boone, best known for portraying FBI agent Elizabeth Keen on “The Blacklist,” is putting her foot down:
Liz Keen will never carry an assault rifle again and I am deeply sorry for participating in glorifying them in the past. Yours, girl from Florida

First of all, is she sure she meant to say “assault rifle”?
What is your definition of an "assault rifle"?

Are those standard issue at the FBI?
Scratching my head on this one I must say!🤔

But handguns, that do way more killing than rifles, are totes ok, right Megan?

But your okay with your character using poison, making the bad guy drink glass, setting people on fire… besides in what episode did Liz ever use an Assault Rifle?

Liz is a fictional character. A FBI agent, she's allowed to use a gun. She can't face criminals with just a smile on your face.

Is she gonna be the first fictional FBI agent to shoot bullets by spitting them out of her mouth really hard?
a huge blow to fictional characters everywhere, to be sure https://t.co/DPyTcNGdIo

You want your cake and eat it too! You want to keep making money on a hit show and virtue signal at the same time. If you were serious about not glorifying gun violence you would leave the show.
