Going to side track for a second. Mustang, you use the term "hoplophobe" incorrectly.
The generally accepted definition is a fear of weapons.(as a neologism, however, an ACTUAL definition is hard to nail down.)
I can tell you, in my case, I do not believe there is a need for the number of guns the US citizenry has in this society. It strikes me as a mania.
That said, the term "hoplophobe" cannot be used in cases like mine, as, while I dislike guns on a visceral level, I am a collector of weapons. No guns, of course, but over a dozen swords, staves, bows and crossbows, and the like. And, before I am called hypocritical, I do recognize it as a bit of a mania on my part, as well.
