This is a great quote

Every time guns comes up as a topic in my local rag someone claims carrying is 'compensation for inadequacy.' They've taken Psychology 101 at the local community college and think they are well versed in psychoanalysis. Can't wait until it comes up again th throw this in their face.

feminist and liberals

jeneraly spout off how a guy with a big truck a fast car rides a motorcycle or owns a gun is"overcompensating".i think they are "overcompensating" for the lack of one.they have PENIS ENVY!besides what do they say about a woman who has any or all of those things?

like your mark twain by the way schuyler.have you ever heard this one by him? "cant, never did.wont,never tried" its kinda the same line of thought just sounds really redneck till you stop and think about what hes saying.

The Hoploites were Greek warriors who carried long lances and a shield.

hoplophobia

is defined as "a fear of firearms" or "a fear of armed citizens",
"mental disturbance characterized by irrational aversion to weapons".

From wiki: Hoplophobia from the Greek hoplon, or weapon, is defined as the "fear of firearms" and as the "fear of armed citizens".

Firearms instructor and writer Colonel Jeff Cooper claimed to have coined the word in 1962 to describe a "mental disturbance characterized by irrational aversion to weapons". Although not a mental health professional, Cooper employed the term as an alternative to slang terms, stating: "We read of 'gun grabbers' and 'anti-gun nuts' but these slang terms do not (explain this behavior)." Cooper attributed this behavior to an irrational fear of firearms and other forms of weaponry. He stated that "the most common manifestation of hoplophobia is the idea that instruments possess a will of their own, apart from that of their user."
