This couple is so phobic about guns, they are freaking out about their daughter having a pistol safe for securing her diary from a snooping brother.

The problem: The black box turns out to be a gun safe! (A friend of my husband told us.) We’re not worried that she has a gun; she helped organize a school rally to tighten our state’s gun laws. But she refuses to give up the safe, and we don’t want it in our house. Help!

Hoplophobia is an irrational fear of firearms and armament, that include all sorts of guns. Hoplophobia is extracted from the Greek word ‘Hoplo’ meaning armaments and ‘Phobos’ meaning fear. The term Hoplophobia was coined by Col. Jeff Cooper in 1966. The Hoplophobes suffer from extreme panic like symptoms at the thought of firearms also.

When all around is chaos, and we’re contemplating the mess like Theoden in Lord of the Rings, muttering “How did it come to this?”

This here is how it comes to that.

Self culling. I’m sure they’re fully vaxxed, death awaits.

As wife points out if they had raised their son to respect people’s property they wouldn’t have had the problem.

So this obviously rabid anti-firearm, and by all indications, blindly liberal couple somehow, against all odds, manage to raise a daughter that thinks independently. She solves a problem (little brother can’t seem to respect her privacy) for herself, on the cheap (got the lock box at a thrift store) but instead of supporting her, Mom & Dad write to an advice column (red flag that your parents are intellectually ill equipped) asking what to do because they just can’t accept that there’s a (former) gun safe in their home.

I think the daughter needs to tell the parents to back off and get some professional help. I also wonder if there could be a support group for the offspring of snowflakes like this to help them recognize and possibly undo the indoctrination they have been subjected to. Before it’s too late.

Let’s see… 3-in-1 oil (my preferred gun oil), shop rags, cotton swabs, staplers (for putting up targets), masking tape (for covering holes in targets), laptop bags (good for discreet pistol bags), ear plugs and muffs, safety glasses… anything else they might freak out over?

    Staple gun. Nail gun. Grease gun. Air gun (attachment to my air compressor to blow debris out of the garage, has a pistol grip and a literal trigger). Belt, cause it can be called a “gun” belt.

This is a religious or cultic thing. If the identical object had been widely advertised as a “portable lock box” then the parents would almost certainly have been fine with it. I’ll bet that if the 15-yo daughter had a “portable lock box” to store condoms and her stash of “morning after pills” then the parents would be proud of how their daughter is “so responsible”.

But no, The Devil is in the object and it cannot be in their house. Out, Satan, out out! I’d also bet that these people mock and condemn, say, Southern Baptists, for being “ignorant, superstitious, and close-minded”. Finally, I’d bet these are people with pale complexions who, despite having high IQ, have damned near zero insight into their own behavior and attitudes.

These morons won’t survive the hard times coming. Since they are totally unequipped to deal with benign reality, harsh reality will make their heads explode. Maybe even liiterally, from a couple of hundred yards away.

    Steve S · July 8, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    I’m not convinced they’ll survive easy times.

      Big Ruckus D · July 9, 2022 at 12:11 pm

      Touché. I like the way you think.

Pfft. I knew a guy who transported wargaming figurines in a padded pistol case.

When he was stopped at the airport and asked what was in the case, he quipped, ‘Would you believe forty little green men?’.

(And yes, that was exactly what was inside.)

Now you know how they pulled off the COV-LARP.
George Carlin has a great rant about it on You Are All Diseased.
A society obsessed with germs and safety!
EPIC, encore time, just imagine what he would have to say about today.

The poor kid. Being raised by imbeciles. I wonder what happens if Elmer Fudd comes on. John Wick is Probably not on their list of favorite movies.

    Steve S · July 8, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    She so needs to put several John Wick posters up in her room.
