On Thursday, June 23, 2022, the United States Supreme Court overturned a centuries-old New York law restricting those who are allowed to carry concealed weapons outside their home. The ruling — which comes as Congress pushes through a bipartisan gun safety law — is seen as an extension of what the Second Amendment protects. While many firearms advocates are hailing the decision, critics claim it will have a negative impact on curbing gun violence. Following the decision, many in Hollywood and the entertainment world reacted. Visibly upset by the ruling, Ron Perlman tweeted, “The Supreme Court’s recent firearms decision fails to say what they meant to say: whites only.”
