Posted on 10/26/2017 8:24:00 PM PDT by nickcarraway
NCIS newbie Maria Bello has earned a mixed response after posting a pic of herself prepping for the show while posing with a large gun.
Bello, who debuted on the long-running CBS procedural last week as Special Agent Jack Sloane, shared a photo to Instagram on Monday of herself with boyfriend Elijah Allan-Blitz. Theyre both holding firearms (or replicas), and Bello appears to be brandishing a semi-automatic weapon.
Agent Jack Sloane and sidekick @elijah_a.b gun training for #ncis Thanks Leon!!! Bello wrote. Her message references director of NCIS Leon Vance, played by actor Rocky Carroll.
While a number of fans responded with excitement for what Jack Sloane might be up to, other Instagram users criticized the actress for smiling while holding a gun in the wake of this months Las Vegas shooting. Thats a shameful pic, one individual wrote. Always been a fan, but glamorizing assault weapons after Vegas is clumsy at best, callous at worst. One less fan. Good luck with NCIS.'

Yet another commenter chimed in with, Weird timing for posting this.

All those idiots can take a hike. I knew there was something I liked about her.
There is nothing sexy about anyone holding a gun,
Depends on who is holding it.
G.Gordon Liddy would disagree. Remember his famous "Stacked and Packed" Calendar?
Boyfriend? I thought she came out as lesbo a few years ago. She was hot in “Payback”, one of my favorite movies.
How come the first name of her TV character is “Jack?”
35,000 People die every year in Car Accidents.
No sexy photos of Models leaning on Ferrari’s now?
Anonymous Instagram and Twitter comments? The lazy media has fallen so far.
I believe she’s implied her swing goes both ways.
Wiki says her TV character is named “Jackie.”

Not if you’re a hoplophobic bigot.
This kind of hate speech really triggers me.
Looks good to me, good trigger control.
If she was standing there holding a giant dildo, the far lefties would be cheering and going crazy. Morons.
Re: “Anonymous Instagram and Twitter comments? The lazy media has fallen so far.”
They probably write the Comments!
Does this mean that we won’t see firearms and violence in movies any more? Fine with me.
Hell, hardly anyone uses a gun anymore on NCIS. So whats the big deal?
