    Public health issue: Guns or Hoplophobia?

    I bet most of the anti-gunners don't even know how to pronounce that.

    But Jeff Cooper was a friend of mine, so I DO know how

    Are guns a ‘public health’ issue, or is the problem ‘hoplophobia?’

    Are guns a ?public health? issue, or is the problem ?hoplophobia?? - Seattle gun rights | Examiner.com


    This may not make the US attorney in Seattle very happy, but......

    If the word is derived from "hoplite" I can venture a guess. I've seen it, it exists. Kind of humorous sometimes. I've heard everything from "won't touch a gun, it can go off" to "won't touch a sharpened pencil, it can stab me."

    It may exist, it probably doesn't. It sounds like something somebody made up.

    Whatever it is, just don't waste my tax dollars researching and attempting to treat people who may have been diagnosed with it.

    Anything can be a diagnosable condition if the right person says the right thing. In which case nothing we can do or say here will save us from unreasonable expenditure of our tags dollars. Wait... Doesn't that already happen?

    These high-capacity, high-powered guns are not hunting weapons. They were designed for a central purpose: killing people


    Really? Since when is .223 or 5.56 NATO rounds considered high powered? Any hunter near my neck of the woods owns a 30-06 which is twice the size of a 5.56. What is a 30-06 then? Anti tank weaponry?
