Is Gun Hysteria a Guy Thing?

From Huffington Post. Excerpted from an editorial by Matthew Chapman:

"I am pretty sure I can predict the outcome of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on guns today. Reason will not prevail. Nowhere in America is anyone proposing a serious ban on weapons, yet gun lovers squeal in hysterical fear and frighten everyone else. It must be a form of Infantile Castration Anxiety. "Please don't take my ickle shooter, daddy." How else can you explain this overreaction to a public health problem that's been solved in so many other places? Looked at rationally, even the most stringent gun proposals barely qualify as circumcision let alone the full snip (or the Big G as they call it in the gelding fraternity). No, this is an irrational fear, and unless it is understood as such, men and boys will keep on shooting people."

----------

"It is interesting -- and supportive of my castration anxiety theory -- that the physically weaker half of the population, women and girls, tend to be much less strident about guns than men. Apart from a few shrieking NRA transvestites (I think), most women seem to be either silent, reasonable, or in favor of more gun control. Perhaps they know that a gun in the house raises the likelihood of their getting shot and killed by a factor of 3.4, and that ninety percent of the time their killer will not be a stranger breaking into their house in the dead of night but someone they know.(To be shot by the man of the house holding the gun that was bought to defend the woman of the house from the stranger breaking into the house... talk about irony.)

"Facing death by man-plus-gun, but at least not feeling their "femismo" threatened by weapon-loss, women appear to view gun violence more calmly and more expansively. They are afraid, naturally, but want more permanent solutions to their vulnerability than the brief, unearned power-rush endowed by the gamble of picking up a gun."

I am certain that there are women who post here who disagree. But, there does seem to be an unaccountable attraction to guns and posturing in response to the merest specter of their regulation that does not respond to logic.

And, it looks to me to be the same factor in operation whether it is otherwise powerless gang-bangers in the hood, or mild-mannered Walter Mitty types in the burbs.

Gun hysteria is a liberal democrat anticonstitution thing.

Gun ownership use and appreciation is enjoyed by both sexes.

Saw some pink guns at Wal-Mart so they may be for women or gay guys.

My wife got mad at me for not taking her to the shooting range after church. She spends more on ammo than I do.

I don't think women are against guns. They're more a target of thugs and rapists than men. But I think most women are for gun laws.

Yes, guns are owned by both men and women. But we are more pragmatic and sensible. We know the need to keep them away from criminals. You guys ..... you want to play cowboy.

Well I go along with impeaching. Of course there's no basis. But Obamacare does not prohibit a doctor from asking you about guns in your home. Guess what. A doctor can ask you that anyway and may be required to if he thinks you are suicidal, and suicidal can always mean homicidal. There is nothing that compels you to answer. Just say "I have none." Case closed.
