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.
