The fictional Natasha Romanoff, AKA the Black Widow, plays one of the best spies and assassins in the world. She is always carrying two handguns on her. Possibly it is a Disney, but the new Disney Marvel series “What If . . . ” has Romanoff declaring that “Guns aren’t really my style” (Episode 8). Seriously? Isn’t it enough that television and movies already bombard us with people saying “I hate guns“? Is it really necessary to even have characters whose identity is tied up with guns now disowning them? Will we have a remake of “The Rifleman” where the lead disavows rifles?
