Hoplophobia is the irrational, morbid fear of guns (coined by Col. Jeff Cooper, from the Greek “hoplites,” weapon). Hoplophobes are common and should never be involved in setting gun policies. Point out hoplophobic behavior when noticed, it is dangerous, sufferers deserve pity, and should seek treatment. When confronted, hoplophobes typically go into denial, a common characteristic of the affliction. Often helped by training, or by coaching at a range, a process known to psychiatry as “desensitization,” often useful in treating many phobias.
So this episode also includes some of my thoughts on Hoplophobes.
