George Clooney is afraid of guns

“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity” -Sigmund Freud

Hoplophobia from the Greek word Hoplon, or weapon, is defined as the "fear of firearms" and as the "fear of armed citizens". Firearms instructor and writer Col. Jeff Cooper claimed to have coined the word in 1962 to describe a "mental disturbance characterized by irrational aversion to weapons".
