Katee Sackhoff, the 33-year-old actress who's starred in Battlestar Galactica, 24, and the new series Longmire, claimed she lost half of her 100,000 followers Monday when she tweeted about practicing gun safety.

After a flood of responses from gun-control supporters, Sackhoff tried to clarify her stance.

The whole conversation apparently didn't sit well with her followers.

UPDATE — Saturday, June 15: Sackhoff has responded to the mini-controversy.

I did not lose half my Twitter followers. My tweet was an attempt to diffuse a discussion that, for the moment had gotten slightly heated. And in 140 characters anger, frustration, and also humor do not translate well ...

This was a light hearted attempt to change the subject for the moment. I never dreamed it would be printed as truth and not FACT checked ...

My opinions are just that, my truth is my integrity. And my integrity is my character. I hope none of that has come into question this week.
