These Celebs Are Losing Their Minds After Gun Rights Decision

( – Numerous Hollywood celebrities have erupted in an outburst of fury after the United States Supreme Court issued its most significant ruling supporting Second Amendment rights in recent years.

Famous movie actors such as Julianne Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Barbra Streisand, Albert Brookes, and George Takei, among others, seem to be “freaking out” over the latest SCOTUS decision upholding gun rights.

In a 6-3 ruling along ideological lines, the Supreme Court decided last Thursday that the long-standing law of the state of New York, which required proper cause for issuing concealed carry permits, is unconstitutional.

In New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen, the Supreme Court ruled that the state of New York used its proper cause requirement to deny American citizens their constitutional right to carry firearms beyond their homes. By doing so, the court supported the right to carry a gun outside the home without proper cause limitations.

Hollywood stars were quick to cry foul in the wake of the Supreme Court’s pro-Second Amendment rights ruling, claiming that it endangers public safety.

“Truly a disgraceful ruling while the Justices themselves want protections against people with guns,” tweeted Barbra Streisand, who resides in California but is a native of Brooklyn. She accused the conservative justices of being “GOP extremists” who “now overrule the rights of local governments to try and protect citizens.”

In a post on Instagram, actress Julianne Moore, a resident of New York, argued that the court has prioritized “the desires of the gun extremists over the safety of our children.”

Whoopi Goldberg, in turn, commented on The View that the Supreme Court’s decision is “a middle finger to New York.”

Bette Midler, also a New Yorker, insulted the justices as “laughable” and “ridiculous.”

Albert Brooks tried to mock the Supreme Court justices by calling for buying “them a television set” so they can watch mainstream media coverage of mass shootings.

“Open carrying weapons in NY? This will be the Wild West,” another Hollywood actor, Wendell Pierce, wrote on Twitter.
