But let's remember that the term "hoplophobia" and the notion that an irrational antagonism towards guns and gun rights were coined by Jeff Cooper. As much as I have the greatest respect for Col. Cooper, he was not a mental health clinician.
"Hoplophopia" is not in the DSM-IV (or is it "V" now?). It is not a true, recognized mental disorder.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
