In reality, Richard Dean Anderson is vehemently anti-gun and is a member of several anti-gun organizations and forced this part of his persona into the show. However, in the pilot episode, MacGyver is seen firing an AK-47 on a mission in the opening Gambit (7:51 into the episode)—the decision to have him avoid gun use came after production of that episode. He is often suspicious of militaristic attitudes within the government; he sees his Phoenix Foundation employer as an alternative to the more conventional (and violent) means of law enforcement.
