Katherine Heigl excited many pro-Second Amendment supporters and gun enthusiasts Tuesday when she tweeted that she was on her way to target practice. Heigl stars in the NBC drama State of Affairs, in which she plays a top CIA analyst.
Heigl tweeted the following Tuesday:
Headed to the gun range today to practice my shooting skills for #StateofAffairs

Some people were not too supportive.
@DanielBaret2 More guns is NEVER the answer. Ever. Ever. Ever.

Fox News pointed out in 2010 that Heigl expressed an interest in target practice while filming a project:
“I’m in the process of potentially taking some target practice lessons for my next movie One for the Money. I’m stoked about it…It’s about a female bounty hunter, she’s not supposed to be good with guns but I’m still curious to know what it is like.”
