I’ve known for a long time there are a lot of people with some severe mental problem that they, their friends, and their families frequently are unaware of. It’s called Hoplophobia. Thanks to a posting by The Gun Guy I found this link to someone offering a cure for Hoplophobia. What is Hoplophobia? Glad you asked:
Known by a number of names – Hoplophobia, Fear of Firearms, and Fear of Guns being the most common – the problem often significantly impacts the quality of life. It can cause panic attacks and keep people apart from loved ones and business associates. Symptoms typically include shortness of breath, rapid breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and overall feelings of dread, although everyone experiences hoplophobia in their own way and may have different symptoms.
They claim good results too:
We have never met a case of Hoplophobia that could not be overcome using these methods. So please, whether or not you decide to work with us, make a decision to get over Hoplophobia now.
I can’t agree more. Seek help if you have to, but get over it now.
