    Conflating hatred of gays and hatred of guns is indefensible, imo.

    •  It's not hatred of guns and hatred of gays (1+ / 0-)

      It's a good one and points out both the bad and the few good points in the comparison.

      The Author even updated at the top of the diary and apologized and attempted to clear up his admittedly muddy and poorly articulated point.

      imo hoplophobia is more similar to arachnophobia while homophobia is not a phobia at all but a pathology more similar to racism or anti antisemitism than any other phobia. Ther may be a small element of fear but it's more hate.

      Anti gun people come in a few flavors. Hoplophobes who truly do have an unreasonable fear of firearms, controllers whose agenda is obvious as well as well intentioned but just misinformed people attempting to make a difference.

      group 2 is the one dangerous to all our freedoms, not just the 2nd amendment.
