The Blacklist's Megan Boone Says Her Character Will Never Carry an Assault Rifle Again

Megan Boone says that her The Blacklist character Liz Keen will never carry an assault rifle again.

The actress made the announcement after the latest mass shooting at a school, where 17 people were killed by a gunman who used an AR-15.

“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,” Megan tweeted on Friday.

A fan replied and said, “As an FBI agent. It’s pretty standard.. especially on raids is it not?” Megan responded to say, “I am not SWAT.”

    Hey Megan, you do know that AR-15 doesn’t stand for Assault Rifle right?!? Get your facts straight.

    good choice not using it as one of the epitomes of coolness of a fictional character

    To the “fan” who said, “As an FBI agent. It’s pretty standard.. especially on raids is it not?” — what’s your point? Megan is an ACTRESS, not an “FBI agent.” If more actors would refuse to use weapons in films and TV shows, there might be a subtle shift in people’s thinking.

    This is a bit ridiculous. People in america are so sensitive… Just enforce gun control laws, so simple. No need to bubble wrap people (/kids).

    Does she portray an agent?
    Why was it okay before? Those others shot also mattered.

  • MyName

    Unfortunately it isn’t only about enforcing gun laws. The weapon used in the recent Fla. school shooting was legally purchased. There were some laws in place that were signed away and more needed and then enforced.
    There should be background checks when all such weapons are sold and those with history of mental illness should be denied.

    i don’t get your reply. Gun control means that not anyone can buy guns, duh. Plus I don’t understand why anyone(meaning civilians) would really need a gun in their house, but whatever.

    Gun control is gun laws. Some apply to only certain types of weapons, to certain types of vendors, to certain types of people, etc and are often changed and altered.
    Some civilians are responsible gun owners and want to continue having the right to own them. Civilians owning guns will not go away 100% and trying to achieve that would only result in them defending less restrictions.
    It’s then better to go after making it as safe as possible than wiping it out completely. We’d make more progress.
