I don't know drail, did Cooper have a word for fear of being shot as well as a fear of weapons? In my mind, the two are mutually exclusive. I make a distinction between being afraid of an inanimate object and having someone pointing a handgun at me with the intent to use it.

You can see graveyards and tomb stones down in the dark depths of a large caliber handgun's barrel. When someone who means business is pointing it at you. Maybe that ups the fear factor too, who's holding that 'intimidating' weapon.

I know for certain that I'd never want to depend solely on fear to stop someone though. There are people in this world that can't be intimidated.
