"As the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin characterizes it, the report is “wonderful news for the country and rotten data for anti-gun advocates.”

"To be clear, 2010 is the most recent year for which the CDC has released homicide data. For the record, FBI data show that the murder rate dropped again in 2011, and again in the first half of 2012. But let’s give the president a break; this much good news for the country might be more than the poor man can stand."

Also, it’s important to remember that not all anti–gun beliefs are the result of defense mechanisms. Some people suffer from gun phobia(18), an excessive and completely irrational fear of firearms, usually caused by the anti–gun conditioning they’ve been subjected to by the media, politicians, so–called "educators," and others. In some cases, gun phobia is caused by an authentic bad experience associated with a firearm. But with all due respect to Col. Jeff Cooper, who coined the term "hoplophobia" to describe anti–gun people, most anti–gun people do not have true phobias. Interestingly, a person with a true phobia of guns realizes his fear is excessive or unreasonable,(19) something most anti–gun folks will never admit.

Given: "Permission is granted to distribute this article in its entirety, so long as full copyright information and full contact information is given for JPFO.

That lack of attribution is more than a small bit dishonest.

Copying an entire paragraph verbatim and NOT admitting it's a plain old copy/paste (let alone not acknowledging the copyright)? FAIL.

When I was a child, I was afraid of "atomic bombs." At the time, I had a hard time distinguishing the good bald man (Eisenhower) from the bad bald man (Kruschev). I watched Walter Cronkite on TV tell us that JFK was dead, and watched live as Ruby killed Oswald. Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy followed. John Lennon, the attempt on Ronald Reagan, all were about a lone individual, or perhaps a small group enabled to alter the future for everyone through their own selfish motivation armed with readily available weapons.

I don't fear guns, in fact when I shoot I feel enabled. Hell, I don't even fear the nuclear weapons, these days, though I would hate to see them ever used again.

What I fear, are nut cases, psychologically damaged, or morally impaired individuals, that feel empowered by guns and justified by the Second Amendment; that are too confused, selfish, or self righteous to care about a democratic majority and are willing to act out their sociopathic fantasies by taking fate into their own hands. These people are a threat to a peaceful and just democracy. They cross our paths ever more frequently on the television and the internet. One of the warning flags, are people that think that their guns are more important than any other need in society.

Man, that's gotta hurt Buggy.

He got villified for saying it but when Bill Bennett linked the drop in crime to the timing of Roe vs. Wade I believe he was quite correct, for once anyway.

You'd probably best direct that question to the person who actually wrote that paragraph.. Sarah Thompson, M.D.
