Skip to comments.'The Blacklist' Criminalizes Gun Manufacturers

Ressler: We have you on video advocating a sale of 30 semiautomatics to a 24-year-old woman you had to know was a straw purchaser.
Kemp: I had to know? You guys are agents, right? Not lawyers.
Elizabeth: It has to bother you that a young woman like Sofia Salgado was murdered using one of your guns.
Kemp: I feel terrible about Ms. Salgado and every victim of gun violence killed by my weapons or any weapons. I make guns. I don't get to choose how people use them. Nobody goes after the carmakers when a driver intentionally runs someone down.
Elizabeth: Is that your vision for the world, Mr. Kemp? That we only care about people, about human life, when the law explicitly tells us we have to?
Kemp: Oh, sorry, I thought I was with the FBI, not The Brady Campaign.
Ressler: Look, I'm a member of the NRA, and I believe in the Second Amendment, but what you do, pouring more and more weapons into high-crime areas -- that has nothing to do with keeping a well-regulated militia and everything to do with making a buck.
Kemp: And I make more of it every time a shooting goes viral. Not only am I not stopping, I'm ramping up production. In fact, I just ordered shipment of 6,000 FineCals from my factory in Atlanta to my distribution center in Chicago.
Harold: We're done here. Mr. Kemp's attorney just secured a hearing on his arrest.
Kemp: Is this a great country, or what?

I’m getting a warning when trying to get onto FR- anyone else getting this? Seems the certificate for the site is run out or something?
So am I. I told my browser to ignore it.
The non-secure website doesn’t display the warning.
Yesterday and today. No biggie. Roll on through.
Now I remember why I never watched that show after the first episode, even though I like James Spader.
I must be too literal, but I saw the villain as representative of villains only. I did get a kick out of the villain saying he was interested in quickly setting the narrative, which I thought was very educational and if I wanted to be non-literal and more into symbology, it could have been applied more easily to Leftists.
ok thanks- i didn’t think about trying the http ‘non secure’ site- I’ll tell browser to ignore- thanks-
ok thanks- didn’t know if was just my browser or not-
Did you watch the ENTIRE episode? I thought that the point here was not against all gun manufacturers, just the bozos that make the cheap guns used by the ‘hood rats, then pay off the press not to blame them.
It was obvious that Red was quite upset watching the girl at the Convenience Store get murdered over very little, and made sure that the robber’s recidivism rate dropped to 0.00%. I also liked his soliloquy when he confronted the gun manufacturer, making a point of letting him know the difference between weapons and a “Saturday Night Special”. Nice touch to use one of them to get his point across at the end.
But yes, I was quite chagrined when Ressler used the NRA/2nd Amendment reference. Definite sop to the Leftist, probably a peacock requirement. And I really do wish they would finally let the whole Katrina Rostova thread complete. Either really kill the woman, or have her take out Ilya and just disappear.
Most websites automatically set browsers to redirect to the secure site these days. Guess it’s good to have the option.
ah i didn’t know that- thanks for the info
I was also wondering what happened to the Freepathon banner; that’s disappeared.
I stopped watching middle of 3rd season. The PC crap was out of control.
I WAS a big fan of The Blacklist, not so much anymore. I am thinking about dropping it from my TIVO.
The show has changed. New writers, directors, something. It’s NOT the show it once was.
Also they killed off some of the best characters, Mr. Kaplan, Tom, Samar, Eric. Now Brian Dennehy, who played Elizabeth’s grandfather has actually died, (God rest his soul).
And MISCAST Laila Robins as the older Katarina Rostova. It says she is 61, but she looks 81! I know James Spader is no longer a heartthrob, but even he could do better than Laila Robins.
Elizabeth needs to kill another high ranking government official, bring Tom back from the dead, they brought Elizabeth back, (I know he’s doing some hospital show), dig up Mr. Kaplan! Drop some more bad guys out of airplanes into somebody’s living room. MORE RUSSIANS! Elizabeth needs to be in almost every scene! Some at the beach!
NONE of that will happen, so I guess I’ll be saying dasvidaniya to The Blacklist.
hmm, didn’t notice till you pointed it out lol-
I stopped watching the show about 2-3 years ago. I’m surprised it’s still airing.
“...shall not be infringed....”
I’ve barely gone past season 4 and it can be very lengthy across several episodes to fully understand the plots, and plots within plots, within plots....
When the female lead of the show demanded that assault weapons no longer be featured in the show, I didnt quit watching, but understood this show was targeting
a blue audience.
I have enjoyed the show. But when the direction of the plot became apparent, I changed the channel. Period.
Poor folks don’t have the right to affordable self protection ????
