    Dispelling the Myths of Hoplophobia

    Thanks to "Esq.Stu" for the idea to investigate this phenomena.
    Dispelling the myths of Hoplophobia

    "In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre and in the looming shadow of efforts and proposals to restrict legal access by law abiding citizens to firearms ranging from limiting magazine capacity to outright bans and confiscation; it is important to separate fact from fiction and answer the argument of those who would seek to abridge the 2nd Amendment rights of ordinary Americans.

    It has been said that every time there is a mass shooting, someone tries to take guns away from the people who didn’t do it!

    The fact is that most gun control advocates are frightened of firearms, have never owned, held or fired a gun, and hold misconceptions about both the hardware and the right to bear it. So let’s set the record straight and address these directly."

    I read somewhere that Jeff Cooper coined the word "hoplophobia."
