Park Slope Celebs Make NRA "Enemies" List

The NRA has published its "enemies list," and two Park Slope celebrity residents, Steve Buscemi and Patrick Stewart have made the cut!  It looks like the list was last updated back in September, 2012, and it includes the names of many other influential celebrities who don't live in Brooklyn, like Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Sandy Duncan, N Sync, and Vinnie Testaverde. Jennifer Connolly is on the list, too.  If only she hadn't moved out of the neighborhood, we'd have three celebrities on the list!

I know that there are some out there who think that the leadership of the NRA is out-of-touch, particularly in the aftermath of several dozen recent shooting massacres. But I'd submit that this is exactly the type of thing that "sportsmen" need to know. When they're not hunting deer, engaged in target practice, or defending themselves from intruders, many gun enthusiasts no doubt enjoy going to the theater.  Now, they'll know that before they buy a ticket to see Betty Buckley in a Broadway musical, they're supporting the career of a celebrity who wants to take their guns away! Many gun-toting gymnastics fans will have to idolize people other than Mary Lou Retton and Cathy Rigby. Do you think Marla Maples, Linda Dano and Richard Karn will ever work again, now that they're on the list?
My biggest beef with this list (aside from the fact that they don't seem to know Geraldo Rivera's last name), is that so many people on the list have been dead for a long time. Not because they were shot, of course. But now that Ed Koch has passed away, maybe they could take this opportunity to remove Jill Clayburgh, Norah Ephron, and Andy Williams.
I'm not really sure what Buscemi and Stewart did to get on the list, but are we to assume that other Slope celebs are big firearm aficionados? Anyone know where Maggie Gyllenhaal stands on this?
